Vertiflo Pump Company now offers a rugged Series 1600 Industrial Horizontal Vortex sump pump for industrial and municipal applications. Its fully recessed vortex impeller design provides an unrestricted flow since the impeller is not normally in contact with the solids being pumped. Industrial process applications include slurries, fragile food processing solids, pulpy solids, oils, pollution control and wastewater treatment. Solids handling up to 4 in. dia. spheres.
The Series 1600 is designed for long life in severe services with heads to 170 ft, temperatures to 250° F and flows to 1600 GPM. Construction options include cast iron, 316 stainless steel fitted, all 316 stainless steel, Alloy 20 and CD4MC. Model 1620 has a 0.875” shaft diameter with 1.25 in. sleeve, Model 1626 has a 1.25 in. dia. shaft with a 1.625 in. dia. sleeve. Positively driven and gasketed, protecting motor shaft from liquid being pumped.
All suction and discharge openings are flanged for installation ease and integrity. All impellers have wiping vanes which reduce axial loading and prevent dirt from entering the sealing area. Impeller is keyed to shaft, and an impeller locking screw assures positive attachment. Vortex-type concentric design casing has extra heavy wall thick-ness for corrosion allowance.
