Overview

By multistaging series stages in the medium specific speed design range, the VMT provides outstanding efficiencies and low cost operation in high head applications. The special first stage allows operation with extremely low NPSH requirements while running at optimum speeds.

CHARACTERISTICS
  • Low NPSH "Shockless Entry"
  • Integral fabricated column support bearings
  • Ring and key impeller mounting
  • One-piece shaft construction for shaft lengths to 20 ft (6 m)
  • Rigid 4-piece coupling
DESIGN FEATURES
  • Construction according to API 610 latest edition (VS6 type)
  • Fabrications manufactured using ASME Section IX code qualified welders
  • Fabrications designed to national standards when required
  • Wide range of hydraulic designs to suit all applications
  • Choice of bearings and mechanical seals
  • Pump mounted thrust bearing when required
  • Tank or sump mount options available

Thanks to RP's years of experience in the design of the VMT pump, it is suitable for high pressure / high temperature services.
