Compliant with ISO 13709/API 610 (VS6), the Flowserve WUC vertical turbine is a radial flow or axial flow type, multistage, heavy-duty double casing pump. It is designed for continuous un-spared duty at a variety of high-pressure services, operating at temperature extremes and handling difficult liquids.
The WUC covers the highly engineered specialty end of Flowserve's family of double casing vertical pumps
This pump line is based on a modular system, thus providing maximum design and operating flexibility
This is combined with specific design features, including stiff shaft construction, a self-contained axial thrust bearing housing and pressure containing parts certified to various international standards
This makes the WUC to the pump of choice for most critical applications where space considerations or marginal NPSHa values preclude the use of a horizontal pump
Special designed WUC pumps are capable to handle cryogenic liquids (like Methane, Ethylene, LNG, LPG, etc.) down to -200°C (-328°F)
For exceptionally low NPSHa applications the WUC can be equipped with an inducer; double suction impellers are available for selected hydraulics
The full API 610 compliant WUC will be engineered to customer specifications, is designed to meet all material requirements and will perfectly meet the selected service conditions
