Vertical line-shaft pumps enable considerable savings to be achieved in the construction of pumping stations.
These pumps are suitable for the transfer of most liquids, including clear water and liquids with small solids in suspension, especially in industrial applications.
If the pumped liquid is not clean or contains suspended abrasive particles, the shaft and the bearings are enclosed within an additional inner tube to avoid direct contact with these particles.
These type of pumps have the impellers always submerged in the pumped liquid, accordingly it does not need priming arrangements.
The installation is extremely simple. The pump assembly is easy to install with the minimum of site involvement.
For the above described advantages, vertical line-shaft pumps are used in an increasing number of applications, some general schemes are illustrated in the following pages. Download PDF
