Description pump VPL 6

Vertical Turbine pump end made of micro-precision casting stainless steel, suitable for electric or engine motors drive heads. Available is the suction STAINER and gland packing; on demand the foot valve and mechanical seal is available. Water transfer, fire-fighting systems, “RO” plants, Geothermal systems are the most common applications.


Vertical axis pumps recently improved in design
hydraulic with new models and specially developed solutions
for the industrial sectors. High efficiency, reliability, and
extreme robustness are the main strengths of the line
VP-VPL which is available in the version with electric motor or
with “angle transmission” / pulley and internal combustion engine. The big
variety of executions and the numerous materials available make it
this extremely versatile series for use in non-areas
served by electricity, as an emergency or reserve unit
and in all major industry sectors.
