Goulds Introduces New High Flow Water Pump


    (Seneca falls, NY) ITT Goulds Pumps has introduced a new line of double-suction, base-mounted pumps for municipal and industrial water service. The new Model 3408A pumps are available in 2' through 10' sizes, up to 300 HP. Capacities range to 6500 GPM with heads to 400 feet. These pumps are cast iron, bronze-fitted construction with a maximum working pressure of 175 psig.

    The 3408A features internally self-flushing mechanical seals for maximum lubrication, debris removal and heat dissipation. Up to 25% of the total pump flow continuously flushes the seal faces. The internally flushed seals also allow for a shorter shaft reducing deflection thereby extending seal life. Closed-end steel baseplates with full seam welds are used for strength. An open top allows easy grouting. The pump bearings and mechanical seals can be serviced without disturbing the upper casing half, piping connections or electrical motor connections. An ANSI-OSHA-compliant coupling guard shields the flexible coupler.
