Vertical Turbine Pump

Description

The VERTICAL LINE SHAFT TURBINE has a capacity range from 80 GPM (4 LPS) to 15,000GPM (950 Lps) and up to 1,500 ft of head. We can supply on Product and Oil lube. This kind of pump presents endurance and efficiency as no other of our product lines. It has the best price/performance ratio reflected on your invesment, it’s tipically used on deep wells, sumps, cans, etc. wherever its vertical position is assured.

Installation

These pumps are often installed with columns of considerable lengths to reach aquifers available. Therefore special attention should be paid to the mechanical design as to the strength of its components. The minimum casing should be considered carefully because it determines the maximum diameter of pump can be installed in this well. Water production from the well is based on the development or testing of the capacity thereof. Which provides the ability, column length and thus pressure requirement based on the low load on the surface. For systems that require extra pressure to the discharge head is to be designed properly. Operation in wells or sumps autostart generally, filled and pressurized tank or elevated surface by a pressure switch. Can be used with electric motor or diesel engine.

Agricultural well used to either open discharge pressurized irrigation system. Making it versatile since no additional equipment is necessary to pressurize the irrigation system, simply by increasing the number of stages that cover the additional pressure.

Applications

Deep well Pump
Drilled water wells caused the development of the first vertical turbine pump. It was developed to meet the water needs of agriculture and later to supply municipal water districts with drinking water. Both the agricultural and municipal deepwell applications use vertical turbine pumps to supply water from a drilled, cased well to the surface. This may be open discharge for irrigation needs or under pressure as required for municipal applications.

 

Wet Pit Booster
The versatile design and dependable operation of the vertical turbine result in an excellent pump for booster service. When sand or other solids contained in primary water supplies is pumped into a system, damage or blockage may occur to system components. Settling basins or sumps are then required to supply clear water and to protect against costly maintenance or major system damage. Collection basins are often utilized to store initial supplies from low capacity multiple sources to obtain total capacity requirements.

 

Dry Pit Booster
Pipeline boosters are required to suit various configurations of existing piping. The dry pit installation arrangement is suitable regardless of the elevation of the suction line. The pump may be designed to handle any liquid that can be pumped with a centrifugal pump – as a line booster or as a main pump on oil or product lines. Any suitable provision for rigidly supporting the weight of the unit will be sufficient. These types of installations are simple and reliable. Pit depth will be determined by either the suction line elevation or number of stages required to obtain the necessary pressures.

 

Barrel Booster
The demand for efficient and dependable vertical turbine pumps for line booster service has increased as clear water systems are extended to service constantly spreading urban areas. With service mains buried underground at varying depths depending on soil and weather conditions, the vertical turbine can be economically installed to meet existing system requirements. The suction barrel is fitted with an inlet connection at the elevation of the existing line. The vertical turbine is fitted into the chamber to provide the required pressure boost.

 

Fire Pumps
Applications vary from small, basic electric motor units to diesel engine driven. Standard units are designed to handle fresh water, but special materials are available for sea water applications. The Warson Fire Pumps give superior performance in Agriculture, General Industry, Building Trade, Power Industry, Offshore Platform Fire Protection, Municipal, and Process applications with NFPA 20 requirements.

Components


The vertical pump requires the use of a Vertical Driver. The preferred driver is the vertical hollow shaft (VHS) electric motor. The driver thrust bearing carries the thrust load of the pump as well as the driver rotor weight. A complete range of horsepower ratings and any desired electrical characteristics are available.

 

·Discharge Head
It serves to support the driver in proper alignment to the lineshaft, to support the pump components suspended below, and to form an efficient water passage to divert the water from vertical to horizontal flow.

 

·Discharge Column
It connects the discharge head and the pump bowl assembly. For the pump shaft seal, conventional packed boxes for open lineshaft and tension nut assemblies for oil lubricated lineshaft are available. The column is also an integral part of the pump and is machined accurately for correct alignment of the lineshaft bearings and bowl assembly.

 

·Pump Bowl Assembly
It consists of single or multiple stages to meet exact system head requirements. A wide range of bowl sizes is available to meet system capacity requirements. Standard construction includes cast iron bowls with either open or enclosed bronze impellers on a stainless steel pump shaft. Suction strainers are generally used to prevent foreign objects from entering the pump.
