Designed in accordance to international standard of ISO2858, Vector is a range of single-stage, vertical centrifugal pumps, with in-line flanged suction and discharge ports, driven by an electric motor. Vector is characterised by the compact build of the pump, ease in installation; and servicing & maintenance when required.
The vertical in-line construction allows direct mounting into pipework to realise the savings in installation cost and space, when compared to horizontal base-mounted pumpsets. Where space is limited and piping configuration and accessibility for maintenance are important, Vector is the ideal option.
Except the volute casing, most of Vector parts are interchangeable with Monoflo ISO-Magna Series end suction centrifugal pumps, simplifying maintenance and spare parts inventory.
Industry standard, flange-moounted electric motor designed for vertical in-line pump. Vector's design incorporating a stub shaft to connect the motor shaft and impeller, allows versatility and convenience in opting other types and/or make of motors of the user's choice.
The heavy duty stainless steel stub shaft connects the motor shaft to the impeller.By means of a stub shaft, allows user a flexibility in their choice of motors. In addition, when the motor is out-of-service, a standard motor can be installed immediately to resume operation.
The adaptor, a sturdy cast iron bell-shaped housing provides a rigid union of the pump casing(back plate) and (flange of) the electric motor.
The backplate or casing cover is designed for easy removal from pump casing to facilitate 'back pullout' of hydraulic assembly.
As standard, Vector is installed with a mechanical seal to prevent leakage around the shaft. Depending on the type and conditions of medium pumped, various sealing materials are available as options.
Both the casing and backplate are fitted with replaceable wear rings. They protect the pump casing from wear and allow simple maintenance of proper running clearances to reduce maintenance costs and maintain.
Aided by Computer Fluid Dynamics program, the volute casing is designed with a bend suction which pre-rotates the fluid entering, hence improving hydraulic performance.
The in-line casing, heavily 'ribbed' to resist pipe strain, with integral suction & discharge connections allowing the entire rotating hydraulic assembly to be removed for maintenance & servicing without having to disturb the pipe work.
Computer Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software-aided, Vector's hydraulically-balanced, enclosed-type impeller is designed for optimum efficiency. It is key to the taper end of the (stub) shaft for a positive drive, and secure by means of washer and an impeller nut. The 'taper mount' facilitate easy removal of impeller during servicing.
Support feet are integrally casted on the volute casing. The pump has an option to be directly mounted onto the floor, or bolted on an optional base if a foundation is preferred.
Base to allow pump to be mounted on a foundation or inertia block,, so as not to put pipeline under stress.
