Standard Design Features Of Our Vertical Turbine Pump (VTP)
The bowl assembly is the heart of the VTP . The impeller and diffuser type casing
are designed to deliver the head and capacity that your system requires in the most
efficient way possible. The fact that the VTP can be multi-staged allows maximum
flexibility both in the initial pump selection and in the event that future system
modifications require a change in the pump rating. Submerged impellers allow pump
to be started without priming.
A variety material options allows the selection of a pump best suited for even the
most severe services. The many bowl assembly options available assure that the VTP
satisfies the user's need for safe, efficient, reliable and maintenance-free operation.
31688 Basket strainers to provide protection from large solids.
Allows smooth entry of liquid into impeller eye, minimizes vortex formation.
custom fusion bonded epoxy coating inside.
Suction bell bearing
Provided for shaft stability.
Prevents solids from entering suction bearing.
Hydraulic balancing to reduce axial down thrust and achieve long thrust bearing
Dynamic balancing of impellers are available.
Heavy duty, 41688 standard, other alloys for strength and corrosion resistance.
Hollow pump shaft with flushing hole special for bearing flushing on corrosive/abrasive
Available in variety of cast material. Scotchkote custom fusion bonded epoxy coating
inside to improved the efficiency and longer life. Registered fits assure positive
alignment, ease of maintenance.
Sleeve type bearing
Provided at each stage to assure stable operation away from critical speed.
Dual wear rings for enclosed impellers and bowls, permits re-establishing initial
running clearances and efficiency at lower cost. Hard facing of wear surface available
for longer life. Wear ring can be flushed when solids are present in the pumping
Keyed impeller for all the pumps, suitable for pumping liquid in high temperatures.
Keyed impellers provide ease if maintenance and positive locking under fluctuating
load and temperature conditions.
Heavy duty seamless column pipe sections are provided with flanged ends incorporating
registered fits for ease of alignment during assembly.
Lineshaft and coupling
- Open lineshaft - Flanges column/product lubricated lineshaft is recommended for
ease of maintenance or whenever a special bearing material is required. Precision
keyed lineshaft coupling available in all sizes for ease of maintenance. Various
bearing material available. Renewable shaft sleeve or hard facing of shaft available
for longer life.
- Enclosed lineshaft - The lineshaft is protected by water flushing tube, flushing
water for bearing and wear ring on corrosive/abrasive services.
Bearing retainer and lineshaft bearing
Ductile cast iron bearing retainer for size smaller that 24". Various bearing material
Discharge head and motor riser
Discharge head and motor riser designed for all modes of drivers including hollow
shaft or solid shaft motors, right angle gears, vertical steam turbines, etc. Fabricated
elbow discharge head engineered to minimize losses. Large access holes provide easy
access to coupling and stuffing box. Above ground and below ground discharge head
Oil lubricated thrust bearing assembly set with water cooling system make the pumps
running safely in longer life
Whenever packing lubrication leakage can be tolerated and the discharge pressure
does not exceed 300psi, a packed box may be used. Optional headshaft sleeve available
to protect shaft.
Coupling for pump and motor
Flexible coupling for pump and motor when pump with thrust bearing. impeller adjustment
by the nut on the top shaft.
