VTP Vertical Turbine Pump

Vertical Turbine Pumps (VS1)

The VTP pump line is normally designed to operate in wells or sumps. Its bowl assembly consists primarily of a suction case or bell, one or more pump bowls and a discharge case. The pump bowl assembly is positioned in the sump or well at a depth to provide the proper submergence.
