KSB Pumps of Mississauga, ON has just announced the availability of a wide selection of vertical turbine pumps including its large-capacity SEZ series of turbine casing pumps.
Vertical turbine pumps, also known as borehole or well pumps, typically are cylindrical in shape with their intake nozzle and impellers located at the lower end of a long tubular casing with a discharge nozzle located near the top. They are easy to install in a crowded plant or a deep well because of their simple, compact shape. This type of pump has been used in a very wide variety of applications from mine dewatering, industrial water treatment plants and power plants.
The SEZ tubular casing pumps are the company’s largest vertical turbine pumps. These machines are designed for high volume systems and can lift water up to 18 m3/sec or 285,300 gpm.
At the other extreme are the compact and efficient UPA and UPZ models, which are available in diameters as small as 50 mm (2”). UP-series pumps feature submersible motors mounted beneath the impeller assembly. They normally are mounted on the end of a pipe connected directly to their discharge nozzle so they can be lowered easily into a narrow borehole or well. UP-series pumps are used to extract water from deep wells and to dewater mines and other underground facilities.
