Axial-Flow Pump

AXIAL FLOW PUMPS

APPLICATION

The JEC Axial Flow pump is unmatched in the industry for high volume / Low head pumping requirements, especially when corrosive and/or abrasive solutions are involved. Mainly used in the followingapplication:

  • Evaporator and Crystallizer Circulation
  • Phosphate, Soda Ash, Potash and Sodium Chloride Processing
  • Polypropylene Reactors, Xylene application
  • Black Liquor Evaporator, Chlorine Dioxide Generators
  • Sewage Digesters
  • Raw Water pumping, Flood control, Marine Ballast transfer


DESIGN

The Axial-Flow pump generates flow by the thrust or lift action of rotating axial vanes of the impeller. The pump has an elbow that directs the flow through the suction and out the discharge end of the pump. It can be used in the top or end suction configuration depending upon the need and Flange dimensions, bolt circle, and holes comply with ANSI B16.5, 150#. The back pull out design (up to 14" size) allows for easy maintenance and repair as the rotating element may be removed without disturbing the pipework. The pump has wear rings as standard and lifting eye on bearing bracket.

DESIGNATION

  • Model / type - AF
  • Suction & Discharge Diameter (inch) - 14

CONSTRUCTION

Horizontal non-self-priming pump with back pull out design (up to 14" size & bigger size available on request). The "back pull out" design allows for the maintenance of the pump without disturbing the pipework connected to the casing, or the pump alignment.

  • ANSI B16.5,150# SORF. - Standard
  • DIN - Optional
  • Casted or fabricated elbow with precise machined for minimum gap between propeller and casing.
  • Liner type casted casing also available.

  • The shaft is of the wet type, which comes in contact with the pumped liquid.

  • Oil lubrication - Standard
  • Max. Pump temperature 150°C
  • The bearing arrangement consists of Single Row Angular Contact Ball Bearing and Spherical Roller Bearing. Oil Level Indicator is provided for oil level checking and maintaining.
  • Grease lubrication - Optional
  • Max. Pump temperature 150oC
  • The use of grease as a bearing lubricant is available as an option. Bearing are shielded and greased for life.

  • Stuffed Packing Box
  • Single / Double Mach. Seal with cartridge type arrangement
  • Other available as per request


ACCESSORIES

  • Direct
  • V-belt, Pulley Drive
  • Gear Box Drive

Base plates for electric drives are available in two variants of styles. Standard: fixed and grouted directly to the foundation Anti-vibration: rigid base plate on rubber mounts.

PUMP SELECTION

  • For Pump selection, the hydraulic performance curves should be used.
  • These curves are based on water 20°C and specific Gravity equal to 1.0.
  • NSPH valves are indicated on the performance curves. At least 1.5 meters must be added as a safety margin.
