Features and Benefits


5
1 Closed impellers with balancing holes as standard, with
open impeller for higher specific speeds
Offer extraordinary hydraulic performance and high efficiency
levels
2 Bowl and impeller removable wear rings
(front and rear)
Ensure proper maintenance and longer pump lifecycle
3 Oversized integrally mounted bearing housing with axial
and radial bearings
Ensures trouble free operation
4 Shaft seal by gland packing
Provides reliable sealing and easy maintenance

5 Above ground discharge head as standard; discharge


elbow below foundation available upon request
Ensures a proper access to coupling and sealing areas, and
provides the required stiffness to complete pump & motor set

6 Shaft sleeves at pump rotor wear parts


For shaft wear protection
7 Rubber radial guide shaft bearing
Ensures proper performance when pumping slightly
contaminated liquids
8 Line shaft connections with muff coupling able to transmit
all the driver torque to the complete pump rotor
No possible shaft extension or galling could come across due
to reverse sense of rotation
