Vertical pumps are used to draw liquid from a deep tank or well. They come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and functions, but all have a distinctive vertical configuration that moves liquids in the vertical direction upward through a pipe. They can be used in a range of operating temperatures from low to high, with varying pressures, and with many liquids ranging from ordinary water services to corrosive, flammable, and even difficult to process liquids and chemicals.

Vertical centrifugal pump

A centrifugal pump is designed for handling the corrosive fluids involved in waste treatment, sump draining, tank transfer, agitation, wet process, and other industrial applications. It transports fluids by the conversion of rotational kinetic energy to the hydrodynamic energy of the fluid flow. This type of rotational energy typically comes from an engine or electric motor. Fluids enter the rapidly rotating impeller along its axis and are cast out through centrifugal force along its circumference through the impeller’s vane tips. This action by the impeller increases the fluid’s velocity and pressure and also directs it toward the pump outlet. The pump casing is designed to constrict fluid from the pump inlet, direct it into the impeller, then slow and control the fluid before discharge.

Vertical submersible pump

A submersible pump, also known as a well pump, is a device that has a hermetically sealed motor close-coupled to the pump body. It works similarly to other types of centrifugal pumps but can be submerged entirely in the water. They are often used for liquids far underground, such as in sewage services. A unique feature of this pump is that it pushes the water towards the surface instead of pulling it. Another advantage of using a vertical submersible pump is the reduced noise level from being far below ground and underwater.

Vertical turbine pump

Vertical turbine pumps, also known as vertical pumps or line shaft pumps, are centrifugal pumps commonly used to transport water from deep underground pits or wells. They consist of a motor, discharge head, one or more pipe columns, line shaft, pump shaft, multiple bowls, impellers, and a suction bell. They are designed to move water from underground wells or reservoirs and are commonly used around clean water applications that require high-pressure and high-head applications but have a wide range of these pumps for many industries and applications.

Vertical sump pump

Vertical sump pumps are vertically suspended single casing pumps with separated discharge, semi-open, or enclosed impellers designed for wet pit applications. The pump has a separate discharge pipe and a support pipe column. Like the vertical turbine pumps, the pump’s impellers and part of the casings are placed beneath the fluid that gets pumped, while the main power mechanism is kept above the fluid. They are intended for industrial applications to pump clean or lightly contaminated liquids, fibrous slurries, and large-solid containing liquids from the deep sump.
