Today’s Patterson vertical turbine technology is the product of years of vertical pump experience. This refined design concept produces exceptional hydraulic performance, with low vibration and noise levels. Pumping sections can be staged as necessary to meet desired pressure requirements. H2O Works™ Vertical Turbine units require only minimal floor space, and the pumps operate in low NPSHA applications. The high-pressure vertical turbine design is adaptable to a variety of industrial/municipal/power applications. They are capable of handling flows in excess of 30,000 gpm. Standard construction offers cast iron discharge heads from 6 in. to 14 in., with fabricated steel column, stainless steel head and bowl shafts, alloy steel line shaft and cast iron bronze fitted bowls. Bowls are available in diameters ranging from 12 in. through 40 in. Open line shaft construction is standard; enclosed line shafts are available. Special construction requiring stainless steel or aluminum bronze is available, and fabricated steel heads in lieu of cast iron are available in both above and below grade discharge configurations.
