A ‘one-size-fits-all’ frame makes this pump simple to maintain

Vertiflo Pump



The model 1400 horizontal-end suction pump (photo) features a heavy-duty cast-iron frame design that incorporates integrally cast support and ribbed mounting feet, and fits all pump sizes. The frame has a back pull-out design feature that allows for easy inspection, service and maintenance without disturbing the piping to the pump. The pump has external impeller adjustment, and the semi-open impeller design accommodates passage of solids or fines. All impellers have balance holes near the hub, which reduce thrust load and pressure in the packing or seal area. Wiping vanes reduce axial loading and prevent dirt from entering the sealing area. Packing or various mechanical seal arrangements are available as standard options. Requirements for pumping clear and corrosive liquids can be satisfied with capacities up to 3,600 gal/min, heads up to 275 ft and temperatures as high as 250°F. — Vertiflo Pump Co., Cincinnati, Ohio
