Direct-mounted (close-coupled) units are mounted directly to the motor thorough a stub shalt.
this design is ideally suited 1 to 6 pole(1150rpm), 4 pole(1750rpm), and most 2 pole(3450rpm) application.
Motors are available through 75 hp in the TEFC enclosure. Consult the factory for special motor requirement: e.g Mill & Chem, Explosion-Proof. Drip-Proof, Chemical Duty.
Flexible-coupled units of a pump bolted to a bearing pedestal to which power is transmitted by a flexible coupling from a power source.
Flexible-coupled units are required by many end users for various reason:
1) Standard rigid base motor is preferred,
2) c-tace motors are not available,
3) ease of motor replacement is important,
Vertical Centrifugal Pumps are with Vertical extended shafts in two basic styles.
Model VE pumps provides with submerged bearing and Model VEC vertical cantilever shaft pumps with all bearing above the mounting plate and no rubbing parts in the fluid being pumped.
Model VEC pumps are particularly desirable for fluids with suspended abrasive sot ids. C-flanged motor mounting ls standard.
VEe type pumps may also be supplied with a special chair mounting.
Both models may be provided with either bottom or top suction.
The top suction avoids pumping resides collected at the bottom of the tank, and in VE mdels creates a suction rather than a discharge head a the steady bearing.
