Vertical turbine pump are centrifugal pumps designed to move water from a well or water distribution system that is deep underground. They work from above ground, using impellers to draw water up through the pump shaft.
Vertical turbine pumps are usually driven by electricity or a diesel engine through a right angle drive. They consist of at least one rotating impeller that is attached to a shaft and housed in an airtight casing.
Multi-stage versions use multiple impellers on the same shaft to create higher pressure. As the water enters the pump chamber, it is captured by the impellers of the turbine and accelerated to a higher rate of speed. And as the water accelerates and leaves the chamber, more water is drawn through the pump casing inlet.
Vertical turbine pumps are multistage pumps commonly used in municipal water supply, waste water treatment, reservoir management, HVAC and other markets. They are distinguished by the bowl shape impeller casings stacked vertically. The pumps are often submerged and placed in a well, however, some applications place the bowl assemblies in a metal can and the entire pump is mounted above the ground.
