The 855 Series is Carver's offering specifically designed to meet the needs of Filtrate Pump users. Since developed in the late 1950s at the request of a large Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) of vacuum filtration equipment, a wide variety of options are now being included as standards into each pump produced. Flange mounting directly to the receiver tank eliminates suction piping/NPSH problems and allows pumping to resume even after short periods of interrupted flow. Capable of operating in vacuum conditions up to 26" Hg, the specially designed semi-open impeller assures pumping from a trickle to full capacity.
Capacities range to 1000 GPM, depending on discharge head and speed of operation. Available in 6 sizes ranging from 1”-4”; standard materials of construction include All Iron, CD4MCu and Rubber Lined. The 855Series features an overhead v-belt drive arrangement as a standard, with options for close coupled or frame mounted drives. By utilizing either belt drive or variable frequency drive, performance characteristics can be fine-tuned to match most system requirements. Maintenance is simplified as the vertically split case maybe disassembled to expose the entire wetted area. Standard features include a rotatable discharge casing which allows flexibility in locating desired discharge flange orientation, packed stuffing box with seal water connections provided to insure lubrication and eliminate vacuum/air leakage and 2” diameter stuffing box bore on all units. Pumps come with discharge flanges dual drilled for both 150lb / PN 10 connections. 17-4pHstainless steel shafts are utilized to both strengthen the shaft and eliminate the need for shaft sleeves (duplex shafts with CD4MCu). Impellers are keyed to the shaft ,providing a secure fit and protection should momentary reverse rotation occur. The Swing-Out Mount is popular as an optional feature, allowing inspection of the pump or quick access to the tank interior.
