Vertical Turbine (VT) is a Submerged pump and permanent magnet motor assembly. As a result, it allows for quick response in pumping and minimal product loss. It features an active thrust balancing system. This results in greater stability and longer life with lower maintenance requirements. It is VFD compatible which allows for a broad range of operation. The pump is all aluminum construction and driven by a permanent magnet motor. The pump is specially designed with a “Submerged” motor installed in a vacuum jacketed suction vessel “sump” or fixed in-tank.
