Horizontal Pump in Florida, Georgia, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic & the Caribbean
Selecting the best pump for a specific industrial application from the thousands of industrial pumps on the market can often be overwhelming. The first thing to consider is the type of pump that is required for the application. The location where the pump will operate often determines whether a vertical pump, horizontal pump, submersible or inline pump design is best suited for the application. The type of fluid being processed is also an important factor to consider. Some fluids require a low flow pump while others need a high flow pump to deliver the best results. The required pump equipment materials vary depending on the type of fluids that will be processed. Operations processing solid laden fluids use different pumps than operations processing fluids with little or no solids.
A horizontal pump has a horizontal shaft that is ideal for pump locations with low headroom. Horizontal pumps offer advantages such as the following and more:
- Rotors and other internal components are easier to maintain
- Motors, turbines and engines can usually be coupled directly to a horizontal pump
- Easily match external piping with different nozzle configurations
- Overhang designed horizontal pumps meet low suction requirements
- Horizontal pumps with between bearing designs meet high suction application needs
Horizontal and vertical pumps relate to the shape and design of the pumps, not the function. Many pumps such as a low flow pump, high pressure pump, end suction pump, internal gear pump and other pumps are described by their function, yet often have a horizontal design.
