Floway® firewater pumps

Vertical close-coupled single- or multi-stage turbines for a wide range of raw water, potable water and API duties.

Floway® vertical turbines — Models F, FR and VF — are vertical close-coupled, single- or multistage turbines with fabricated discharge heads. Featuring a closed suction pump with below ground suction, these pumps are available with enclosed or semi-open impellers, product lubricated lineshaft with threaded or flanged column.

Able to handle water, chemical solutions (acidic or alkaline) and hydrocarbons, these pumps are perfect for applications in co-generation, cooling towers, fueling service, fire pump (UL/FM), API 610, chemical plants, power plants, water treatment plants, steel mills, automotive paints, sump pumps and coolant systems.

Benefits

     

  • Lower capital costs
       

           

    • The vertical pump design provides space saving
    •    

     

  •  

  • Low operating costs
       

           

    • Weir Floway vertical pump design produces high pressures with premium efficiencies with low operating cost
    •    

     

  •  

  • High reliability
       

           

    • Low NPSH first stage construction is available to insure successful operation without cavitation problems
    •      

    • Flexible Hydraulic Selection. Pressure and flow variations are achieved by changing the number of stages or impeller types
    •      

    • The pump bowl assembly is characterised as low energy per stage resulting in a broad flow range with excellent hydraulic stability
    •    

     

  •  

  • Lower through-life costs
       

           

    • Long impeller life means reduced erosion with multi stage units verses a single stage unit which has a high impeller tip speed
    •      

    • Stable operating characteristics with steep head curve provides excellent pressure sensor sensitivity
    •      

    • Materials to suit the application: cast iron/bronze fitted (standard) and available in any machinable & weldable alloys
    •
