5-42″ FVT Series Vertical Lineshaft Turbine

From deep-set vertical lineshaft turbines delivering 2,500 feet of head – to turbines moving 35,000 gallons per minute – our array of pumping solutions is engineered to handle the toughest applications. Vertical lineshaft turbines are ideal for commercial, municipal or industrial settings where water supply is readily available in rivers, lakes, ponds, streams or water wells. Plus, they come in a variety of configurations, including mixed or axial flow. Outfitted with ASTM A48 high tensile cast iron bowls, investment-cast 304 stainless impellers, and bronze bearings standard, you get superior materials for proven durability, aligned with a highly efficient broad operating range.
