Introducing SVT (Submersible Vertical Turbine) Pumps

In the last blog, we talked about vertical turbine pumps and their basics. We discussed various features of these pumps, what they are, their applications and their construction along with their limitations.
Although vertical turbine pumps are very popular for raw water pumping, but they comes with their own limitations like – they require dedicated pump house, are difficult to install, has limited operations during monsoon, prone to frequent maintenance post monsoon, high spares & maintenance cost, complicated & time consuming maintenance so on…
Add to this, at times Vertical turbine pumps cannot be used when they are needed the most i.e. summer time. As water level goes down normal VT pumps cannot be used & even if they are put to use somehow there is a huge risk of abnormal wear & tear if raw water has any sand content.'
So, what do the modern day engineers do?
Live with these limitations or opt for peace of mind….
The answer lies in “Darling Pumps” - who has introduced a new concept of -  Submersible Vertical Turbine (SVT pumps).
Darling - SVT Series pumps are equipped for turbid raw water pumping. They are an ideal replacement for conventional Vertical Turbine pumps & stand good where consistent & mass water supply is to be made. These pumps can be regularly seen in govt. water supply schemes / projects, Power generation plants etc.
The SVT (submersible vertical turbine) pumps do not only contain advanced features but also provide real value for money to its users. These pumps are ideal for various applications and situations.
If we go on exploring the advantages of the submersible vertical turbine pumps we discover that there are lots of them. Especially when we put up a direct comparison between the conventional vertical turbine pumps and the submersible vertical turbine series pumps, we understand why the latter is a better choice.
Therefore to make you understand this better, we will be sharing a detailed comparison between the two pumps, in the coming blogs.
The comparison would hold various basis including their cost, assembly, shaft, bearing, disassembly, civil work, routine maintenance, spares etc.
We think that the use of SVT (submersible vertical turbine) series pump would majorly benefit the users in terms of time, cost as well as ease of application.

All about Vertical Turbine Pumps

A Vertical Turbine Pump is also referred to as a deep well turbine pump. It is mixed flow type pump or a vertical axis centrifugal which comprises of stages. These stages accommodate stationary bowls that possess guide vanes. They also have rotating impellers.

Dewatering Pumps | Dewatering Pumps India

When are they used?
When the pumping water level is below the limits of Vertical centrifugal pump that is the time when a Vertical Turbine Pump comes into use. They come with a higher initial cost and comparatively a difficult installation and repair process. When we talk about the pressure head developed, it depends on the speed at which the impeller is rotated along with the diameter of the impeller. However, when a single impeller is used to develop the pressure head it’s not so great. With the help of more stage or bowl assemblies, an additional head can be obtained.

The Way They are Constructed

A Vertical Turbine Pump is basically made up of three parts -

Discharge Column
The job of this part is to not only to connect the pump head and the bowl assembly but it is also to conduct water from the bowl assembly to the pump head.

Discharge Head
This part consists of the base. It is this base from which the shaft assembly, the bowl assembly, and the discharge column are suspended.

Pump Element
This element is made up of one or more stages or bowls. Each of the bowls that it is made up of consists of a diffuser and an impeller.

Limitations of the Vertical Turbine Pump

A Vertical Turbine Pump holds certain limitations to it. Here are few of them -

The vertical turbine pump requires quite a bit of attention when it comes to the regular maintenance of the pump. The pump also requires more spares to be maintained.

The vertical turbine pump is very difficult to dismantle. The pump also requires very expensive material handling equipment.

The assembly process of a vertical turbine pump is as complicated as the process of disassembly. We hope the information above gave you a good idea about the vertical turbine pumps.

In the upcoming blog, we will discuss about Submersible vertical turbine pumps and how they overcome the limitations of vertical turbine pumps. To know more, call Darling Pumps at +91 99819 92838.
