Vertical Turbine Pumps

Where the fire protection water source is located below ground level, the best technical pumping solution is the vertical suspended multi stage (turbine) pump

Design:

With this type of unit the impellers are fully immersed in the water maintaining prime at all times. The pump are driven by vertical electric motors or by diesel engines through a right angle gearbox.

Performance:

Standard vertical turbine pumps are available to meet both LPC and NFPA requirements. . The pump are driven by vertical electric motors or by diesel engines through a right angle gearbox.

PERFORMANCE - FM / UL APPROVED AND LISTED FIRE PUMPS:

Vertical turbine pumps: flows up 5000 USgpm (316 l/s) - pressures up to 510 psi (35.1 bar)
flows up 18927 l/m (315l/s : 5000USgpm) pressures up to 35.1 bar (510 psi) after Standard vertical turbine pumps are available to meet both LPC and NFPA requirements.

ELECTRO-SUBMERSIBLE DESIGN

Another version of this pump, which is used on offshore oil and gas platform, is the electro-submersible pump/motor arrangement. Here the pump/motor is located below sea level whilst the dedicated diesel generator to provide the electrical power is mounted on the platform in a safe convenient area.
