Specifications

  • Capacities 30 GPM (6.8m3/hr) to 2,800 GPM (636 m3/hr)
  • Heads to 4500 feet (1372 meter)
  • Temperature -55°F (-48°C) to 400°F (204°C)
  • Maximum allowable working pressure to 2200 PSIG (153 bar)
  • Suction Pressures to 1,000 PSIG (69 bar)
  • Multiple stages in short-set or deep-set configurations
  • API Standard 610 compliant
  • ISO 13709 Standard compliant
Design Features
  • Casing pressure capability and structural design developed & refined using advanced finite element analysis
  • Rotor designs developed and refined with rotor lateral and rotor torsional dynamic analysis to ensure stable operation and low vibration levels
  • Mechanical designs developed with thermal transient analysis to achieve dimensional integrity
  • Hydraulic designs developed with computational fluid dynamic analysis to achieve stable performance and consistent high efficiency levels

Model Features

Threaded Lineshaft Coupling / Keyed Lineshaft
Threaded lineshaft coupling is commonly used for lower horsepower pumps. It is more economical.

Keyed lineshaft coupling is recommended for motors larger than 700 HP. It provides ease of maintenance.
Balance Drum
Thrust balance device with non-galling running clearances
Hardfacing
Provisions for hard-face coatings at bearing journals as standard option to protect against wear from abrasives in the bearing area.
Options Handling Thrust
Thrust bearing in drivers as standard or in thrust pots as standard option
 
  • Provisions for air-cooled rolling-element type thrust pots as standard option
  • Provisions for tilting-pad type thrust pots as engineered option on 4”, 6” and 8” pump sizes
Fan Air Cooled Thrust Pot
  • Cast steel body meeting API standard
  • 25,000 –hour L-10 bearing life
  • Two or three precision bearings configuration
  • Up-thrust capability with dual-coupling configuration as standard option
  • Vibration and temperature monitoring are standard provisions
  • Oil lubrication Thrust bearings & permanently lubricated radial bearings
  • Inpro Seals prevent oil contamination
  • No external cooling system is required due to its fan configuration
  • Enables to remove mechanical seal without removing thrust pot

Applications

  • Typical fluids are Pentane, Propane, LPG and other light hydrocarbons with specific gravities ranging from 0.2 to 1.0
  • Hotwater applications such as Boiler feed water
  • The VICR has a competitive advantage due to its compact design and reduced number of stages from the radial impeller configuration that can produce more head per stage
