Immersion pumps type Movitec VCl

19.03.2012 At this year's Achema KSB Aktiengesellschaft will for the first time present immersion pumps type Movitec VCl. These vertical, multistage centrifugal pumps are used for handling coolants, condensate and lubricants for machine tools. Potential fields of application include industrial recirculation systems, cooling water circuits, washing plants and pressure boosting in general process applications.

In order to efficiently cover the largest possible range of flow rates and heads, the new Movitec VCI will be available in five sizes and with different numbers of stages. The maximum flow rate is 27 m3/h and the maximum discharge head is 250 m. The permissible fluid temperature ranges between -20 and 120 °C. The pump sets are intended for installation on tanks, with the pump‘s hydraulic section being immersed in the fluid pumped, while the motor is dry-installed. The maximum immersion depth is 732 mm. The design combines the benefits of submersible pumps with those of dry-installed pump/motor sets. It constitutes a particularly compact solution. As the largest part of the pumps is inside the tank, fewer pipes and valves are needed. This reduces costs and helps optimise suction conditions.
