vertical cantilever sump pumps are designed for continuous abrasive slurry service in sumps without the need for sump level control or submerged bearings. The following are all of our vMAX design features:
Cantilever design has no stuffing
box seal, no submerged bearings.
Available in 2”, 3”, 4” and 6”
sizes for setting depths of 1.4m,
1.8m, 2.1m without submerged
Rigid 1040 steel shaft with large
bearing span to reduce shaft
deflection and bearing loads.
27% chrome iron wear parts
with 680 BHN minimum
Casing has integral discharge
elbow to reduce localized wear.
Induced flow 8-vane impeller is
recessed out of casing flow path
to pass extra large solids, rags and
Separate suction wear plate with
flared suction entry for reduced
hydraulic entry loss.
Oversized suction strainer to
permit large solids passing and to
prevent blinding by plastic or rags.
Will operate without automatic
level controls, due to recessed
impeller that will not be impacted
by return rush of slurry.
No impeller adjustment required.
Oversize diameter expelling vanes
on back shroud of the impeller
prevent leakage to atmosphere.
Drive end bearing is fixed
clearance twin Timken taper roller
for axial thrust and impeller end
bearing is parallel roller for radial
Grease lubricated bearings.
Integral mounting plate for
supporting pump above sump.
Steel discharge pipe extends
above liquid level and is fixed to
the mounting plate for access to
Adjustable motor mount integral
to power frame assembly with vee
belt drive tensioning capability.
Lifting yoke provided for crane
hook suspension over sump.
