Case Studies

Carver X 4

Matt Gardner

Not a pump you see every day, unless you work with vacuum filtration in a paper mill or similar. Here is one of 4 destined for our North Island customer. Capable of operating in vacuum conditions up to 26″ Hg, the specially designed semi-open impeller assures pumping from a trickle to full capacity. Rugged in design and dependable in nature, the 855 is a workhorse in some of the toughest environments in industry. Mounting the flange directly to the receiver tank eliminates suction piping and minimises NPSH problems. The design allows pumping to resume even after short periods of interrupted flow.
The 855 features an overhead v-belt drive arrangement as standard, with options for close-coupled units. By utilising either belt drive or variable frequency drive, performance characteristics can be fine-tuned to match most system requirements. With a simple, vertically-split case design, the 855 may be disassembled to expose the entire wetted area.
