The centrifugal or mixed type pump
Vertical Turbine Pumps are mixed flow type centrifugal pump designed to move water from an underground well or reservoir. They are typically used where the pumping water level is below the limits of the volute centrifugal pump.
Hidrostal's High Head Vertical Turbine Pumps are an ideal choice for most water and wastewater applications. The vertical construction takes up little floor space; priming problems can be avoided due to the impellers being submerged in the liquid; the first stage impeller can be lowered (by increasing the pit depth, if necessary) to provide the desired NPSH margin; the multistage construction offers higher efficiencies on high head, lower flow applications; and the modular construction allows the pumps to be customized for many applications.
