Wet Pit

For Wet Pit applications, the vertical pump is usually suspended. The pumping element can be fitted with a bowl assembly of any desired specific speed. Normally the bowl assembly bearings are product-lubricated; however, they can be force-lubricated by grease, water, or other lubricants. The column pipe assembly supports the bowl assembly and houses a line shaft. The line shaft bearings are usually open-type, product-lubricated. However, enclosed-type lineshaft, force-feed lubrication with oil, grease, or water may also be supplied. A shaft sealing arrangement is contained within the discharge head on product-lubricated pumps. This type of pump is self-priming.
