Nuclear Pumps - DVSS

BRAND: Flowserve

This ASME Section lll, Class 1 is designed for primary coolant, reactor re-circulation and primary heat transport service with Boiling Water Reactors (BWR), Pressurized Water Reactors (PWR), and Pressurized Heavy-Water Reactors (PHWR).

Product Highlights

Industries

  • Power

Industry Sectors

  • Nuclear

Standards

  • ASME Section III, Class I

Operating Parameters

  • Flows to 24 500 m3/h (108 000 gpm)
  • Heads to 250 m (820 ft)
  • Discharge pressures to 170 bar (2500 psi)
  • Temperatures to 300°C (580°F)
  • Speeds to 1800 rpm
  • Power rating to 9400 kW (12 600 hp)

Design Range

Size Range: 12" to 36" discharge

Features and Benefits

  • One-piece pump casing features a double volute design for BWR and PHWR applications and a diffuser with a torus-type casing for PWR service.
