Reliable continuous operation when slurry is available
No shaft deflection during loss of prime due to run back of slurry down discharge pipe
No impeller adjustments required
No water flush
No shutdown due to clogging
No sump level controls
The new “vMAX™” line of vertical cantilever hard metal pumps has been developed for conventional clean up sump duties and process duties that require reduced degradation of pumped solids.
The casing is configured for bottom suction only to prevent build up of solids in the bottom of the sump. Leakage from the back of the casing, through the life of the pump, is prevented by high performance expelling vanes on the back shroud of the impeller.
The suction entry is flared to promote prerotation of the slurry prior to entry into the pump and scours the floor of the sump to keep it clean.
An oversized surface area suction strainer prevents premature blinding to increase operational life.
