Horizontal centrifugal pump

Pros of Horizontal Centrifugal Pumps

    • Easier installation and maintenance as the internal parts like the rotor are easy to access.
    • Opt for an overhang shaft design for applications that require low suction pressure.
    • Opt for in-bearing shaft design for applications that require high suction pressure.
    • Secure coupling with external accessories like engines, electric motors or turbines.
    • Several nozzle configurations are possible to suit external piping requirements like:
        • Top suction top discharge
        • End suction top discharge
        • Side suction side discharge
    • Highly suitable for indoor applications, since the pump has low headroom, meaning it can be comfortably fit even in cramped spaces.

Cons of Horizontal Centrifugal Pumps

    • Working temperature and pressure are lower compared to vertical centrifugal pumps.
    • Cannot be used for applications that require NPSH higher than the NPSH available. Here, NPSH refers to the net positive suction head.
  • The footprint of horizontal designs is higher compared to vertical pumps.

These pumps are typically used to carry low-viscosity liquids such as clear water and unsaturated wastewater from industrial processes at average heads.

HSC pumps can be used for higher flow rate applications that are not suitable for end-suction pumps, such as fire pumps, portable water distribution, plant make-up water, pipelines, cooling water, and other industrial process flows with fairly thin fluids.

Depending on your specific application, you can opt for either the single-stage HSC pump with a head of up to 550 feet at 140,000 GPM or the multi-stage HSC pump with a maximum head of 2.200 ft, max. operating pressure of 740 psi, and flow range of up to 2,000 GPM, which is suitable for heavy-duty, high-pressure applications.

Keep in mind that HSC pumps are not suitable for transporting thick or viscous liquids, as well as those containing solids.
