Horizontal Multistage Centrifugal Pumps
This type of pump has a segmented casing with modular inter stage components. The rotating assembly is held between bearing housings, making the assembly more balanced for high pressures.
They typically handle higher flow rates than vertical Multistage Centrifugal Pumps (with the exception of vertical turbine pumps).
The horizontal configuration of Multistage Centrifugal Pumps is best applied in applications like these:
- Reverse Osmosis
- Boiler Feed
- Pressure Boosting
- High Pressure Cleaning
- Snow making
- Mine dewatering
This type of pump is pretty maintenance intensive, however. It takes a high skill set to work on these pumps and ensure they are put back together properly. They can also be quite costly upfront, depending on the degree of specification required and the materials of construction.
