IVP Vertical In-Line Pump

Vertical In-Line Split Coupled Pumps

The IVP vertical in-line pump design is available in 28 hydraulic sizes and with a split coupled configuration. It is engineered to allow direct connection to the pipelines while using a reduced space. Its design facilitates maintenance, as the replacement of the mechanical seal becomes fast and simple without disconnecting the pump from the pipeline or removing the motor.

Ruhrpumpen's IVP vertical in-line pump design comes in 28 hydraulic sizes. It allows direct connection to the pipelines, which reduces installation costs with a compact design. The IVP pump line is available in both configurations: split coupled and close coupled (see IVP-CC in-line close coupled pump).

  • Split-coupling simplifies maintenance and allows an easy access to the mechanical seal without disconnecting the pump or removing the motor
  • Flanged suction and discharge in common center line
  • Designed for working with pressures up to 275 psi
  • Fully enclosed, balanced, one-piece impeller design
  • Coupling guard for protection during operation
  • Water Drainer to avoid condensed water collection
  • Cast Iron / SST (CF8)

The IIL & IVP in-line pumps are available as fire protection pumps.
