Double Case Pumps - VPC

BRAND: Flowserve

Flowserve VPC pumps are one of the world’s most comprehensive lines of mixed-flow, diffuser-style, double-case vertical turbine pumps. Available in single or multistage construction, as well as standard and ISO 13709/API 610- compliant designs, VPC pumps incorporate the proven hydraulics of the Flowserve VTP vertical turbine, wet-pit pump into a double-casing configuration. They are designed for continuous duty applications and are particularly well suited for services with limited NPSH available. Multiple design configurations and broad hydraulic coverage ensure you get a cost-effective solution that precisely meets your application requirements.

Features and Benefits

  • Solid shaft motor includes thrust bearing to withstand the total hydraulic thrust as well as the rotor weight
  • Rigid, adjustable flanged coupling provides the proper impeller clearance adjustment
  • Bowls are designed with multiple diffuser vanes and flanged construction
  • Bowl bearings on either side of the impeller provide rigid shaft support
  • Enclosed or semi-open impellers are cast to provide smooth passageways for more efficient fluid flow
  • Suction bell is designed to provide efficient fluid flow into the eye of the first stage impeller
