Vertical-Mount Industrial Pump

KSB Etanorm V pumps designed for washing or degreasing systems.
KSB has introduced its Etanorm V line of vertical-mount pumps designed to be installed in tanks, with the pump components submerged in the pumped medium and the motor mounted in a dry location above the tank. There are two variants. “Wet” models feature hard wearing silicon-carbide shaft bearings that are lubricated by the pumped medium. “Dry” models are intended for use where the product being pumped does not have good lubricating properties and feature generously sized sealed ball bearings to support the drive shaft. Both types of pumps are intended for use with non-corrosive fluids that do not contain abrasive solid materials. The pumps are available with developed heads of up to 100 metres and capacities as high as 740 cubic metres per/hr. Material choices include cast iron or stainless steel for the volute casings and cast iron, stainless steel or bronze for the impellers. The Etanorm V series is designed for the handling of neutral degreasing and phosphatizing solutions, wash water with degreasing agents, paints and oils.
