Today, Patterson’s vertical turbine technology is the product of years of vertical pump experience. The result is a refined design that produces exceptional hydraulic performance, with low vibration and noise levels. And pumping sections can be staged as necessary to meet desired pressure requirements. Vertical turbine units require only minimal floor space and operate in low NPSHA applications. The above-grade discharge, motor and controller allow easy, safe maintenance. Specifically designed to handle stringy solids, H2O Works™ Multi-Purpose Vertical Turbine® pumps are widely used in municipal/industrial solids handling, water treatment, flood control and water supply applications. Bowl sizes from 12 in. to 40 in. deliver capacities from 1,500 gpm to 20,000 gpm and above. Standard units have cast iron discharge heads, fabricated steel column, stainless steel head and bowl shafts, alloy steel line shaft and cast iron bronze fitted bowls. Open line shaft construction is standard.
