VCT

Wet Pit Pumps

Mixed-flow circulating pump designed for continuous duty wet-pit applications requiring large capacities at relatively low pressures. Often used in power plants, desalination, cooling water, drainage, flood protection and water supply. Pull out and non-pullout designs offered.

Industry Sectors

  • Other Industries
  • Water
  • Waste Water
  • Agriculture
  • Water Management
  • Desalination
  • Nuclear
  • Conventional Steam
  • Geothermal
  • Combined Cycle
  • Concentrated Solar Power (CSP)
  • Biomass and Municipal Solid Waste (MSW)

Operating Parameters

  • Flows up to 750,000 gpm (170,000 m3/hr)
  • Heads up 350 ft (110m)

Features and Benefits

  • Reliable, efficient performance assured by a five-mitered elbow discharge head designed to reduce friction loss
  • Outstanding operating efficiency arising from multiple hydraulic combinations that allow precise configuration
  • Longer service life due to an inner column enclosing tube that is internally pressurized to lubricate bearings and prevent shaft and bearing damage during operation
  • Design flexibility with above- or below-grade discharge, pullout and non-pullout designs, plus grease, freshwater or self-lubricating column construction

WUJ

Wet Pit Pumps

The Flowserve WUJ is a multistage, heavy duty single casing vertical turbine pump in compliance with ISO 13709/API 610 (VS1) requirements. The WUJ is designed for continuous, un-spared duty in a variety of severe services, including high pressure and temperature extremes at wet pit or deep well applications.

QL

Wet Pit Pumps

The QL (QLC with Can) is a vertical pump with double suction impeller. This product is recommended when flow is high and pressure is relevant too. QL and QLQ vertical, double-suction turbine pumps minimize operating and maintenance problems associated with typical vertical turbine pumps. They feature double-suction (first-stage) impellers in true twin-volute designs, providing reliable, economical performance in difficult wet-pit services. Their optional enclosed lineshaft construction makes them ideal for use in open sumps as well as numerous industrial applications containing silt or abrasive solids. Also available in an ISO 13709/API 610 (VS2) compliant design to meet varying industry demands.
