A Vertical Turbine Pump (VTP) consists of multiple impellers that are staged on a vertical shaft. The impellers are designed to bring water in the bottom and discharge it out the top. This results in axial flow as water is discharged up through the column pipe. Staging the impellers in Vertical Turbine Pumps can create very high discharge pressures, since the pressure increases as the water moves through each stage. Vertical Turbine Pumps are pumps that are designed to fit in a bore-hole well.
Vertical Turbine pumps can also pump out of an open reservoir, river, intake structure, or tank, or can be mounted in barrel for booster pump applications. A pump can have one or more impellers and diffuser bowls, depending on total head requirement.
Vertical Turbine Pumps are available with open and enclosed type impellers. Sleeve bearings in pump diffuser bowls are lubricated by the liquid pumped. Vertical high thrust motor mounted on top for product lubricated lineshaft bearings, or submersible motor mounted below pump to eliminate lineshaft and lineshaft bearings.
Vertical Turbine Pumps are used in irrigation, potable water supply, plant make-up water, cooling water, fire pumps, potable water distribution, booster pumps, and process pumps.
Types of Fluids
Vertical Turbine Pumps pump water and relatively thin liquids (will not pump thicker oils). They can pump liquids with or without solids if proper impeller type is chosen. Available in alloys for corrosive services.
Vertical Turbine Pumps are the only practical way to pump from a deep well. Wide flow and head ranges. Less floor space usage (smaller footprint). Immersed pump eliminates priming. They can pump version excellent for low Net Positive Suction Head (NPSH) services.
