Vertical Turbine And Propeller Pumps BrochureSource: Pentair, Ltd
Vertical Turbine Pumps have wide head ranges and bowls up to 57" (1447.8 mm). These pumps are ideal for applications where surface equipment is prohibited, or where there are sound restrictions, such as in parks or residential areas.
Axial Flow Propeller Pumps from Fairbanks Morse are designed for high volume fluid movement at low discharge pressures. Used extensively for pumping water from lakes, cooling ponds, tanks, rivers and oceans, typical applications include raw water intake, dewatering, storm water removal, and flood control. Fairbanks Morse vertical axial flow propeller pump applications are found in a variety of markets including urban and rural municipal water, government, industrial and irrigation, and more.
Vertical Mixed Flow Pumps are typically used wherever a moderate volume of liquid needs to be pumped upward at moderate pressure. The advantages of mixed flow pumps include minimum footprint, no priming required (because the pump bowl assembly is submerged), and Net Positive Suction Head Available (NPSHA) at the lowest level to satisfy the NPSHA requirements of the pump. In addition, vertical mixed flow pumps are easily adaptable to various design codes, can be modified for changing hydraulic conditions, and generally experience less wear due to the lower operating speeds they require.
