RDLO – Split Case Pump

Source: KSB, Inc.

The versatile RDLO split case pump from KSB is a reinforced pump that is ideal for applications ranging from raw and pure industrial water to seawater. The RDLO’s state-of-the-art engineering ensures a cost-effective, long-lasting solution for water managers in need of an efficient, sustainable, and low-maintenance product.

Finding a long-lasting, low-maintenance, and cost-effective solution is key, and the RDLO split volute case pump offers a reliable solution:

  • User-friendly design: No adjustment or alignment is required for assembly due to the self-aligning mechanical seal and rotor, self-positioning casing cover, and force-guided assembly. A solid casing split flange provides trouble-free sealing of the upper and lower casing halves. When maintenance is needed, the cover’s hexagon head bolts are removable to allow complete access to the interior of the pump, making maintenance uncomplicated while lowering the risk of costly mistakes.
  • Efficient water transport: The RDLO pump has low NPSH values and is optimized and designed to move water efficiently in the user’s specific setting.
  • Long-term reliability: The double volute casing and double-entry impeller provide a minimal load on the bearings, stretching the calculated operating life for all sizes to at least 100,000 hours. A sealed, dry shaft and protected threads mean no corrosion or wear on the shaft and no jamming or fretting of shaft nut. Corrosion- and abrasion-resistant materials give incredibly long service lives for the shaft-protecting sleeves, impeller, and casing wear rings. Solid bearing brackets, a rigid shaft, and the double volute casing ensure quiet operation, low vibration, and long operation.
  • Affordable maintenance: Different material combinations provide the best-wearing options for any given application, reducing maintenance costs over the pump’s lifecycle. Only minimal spare parts are necessary to keep on-hand and are easy to obtain from more than 100 service centers around the world. To add to the pump’s flexibility, spare parts can also be used for different pump sizes.
