Heavy Duty End Suction Centrifugal Pumps Ideal for Irrigation Applications
Griswold Pump Company announced that its E,F&G Series Heavy Duty End Suction Centrifugal Pumps, thanks to their efficient performance, long life and easy maintenance, are ideal for use in commercial and agricultural irrigation applications.
Backed by Griswold’s 70 years of experience and commitment to manufacturing quality centrifugal pumps, E,F&G Series pumps have been specifically designed with versatility in mind. With capacities up to 682 m3/h (3,000 gpm), heads to 95 meters (310 feet), a broad range of sizes and configuration options, and extensive performance features, the E,F&G Series pumps are ideal for a wide variety of water pumping applications. These pumps are equipped with a choice of either a close-coupled NEMA electric motor or frame mounted with couplings to electric motors, engines steam turbines or belt-driven motors. The EF&G Series pump’s 360-degree mounting capabilities extend installation options, while its close-coupled configurations can also be mounted vertically when space is at a minimum. The back pull-out design permits removal of the entire pump assembly for easy maintenance without having to disturb the piping connections. All E,F&G Series models are flanged in accordance with ANSI B 16.1 for 125-psi applications.
Other key components of E,F&G Series pumps include:
- Shaft Sleeve– The renewable bronze shaft sleeve insulates the shaft from abrasion and contact with pumped liquids
- Mechanical Shaft Seals - The carbon, ceramic, Buna and stainless steel components drastically reduce maintenance and adjustment issues
- Single-Piece Enclosed Impeller – Made of cast bronze and keyed to the shaft, the enclosed impeller is precision balanced with the diameter cut for the specific condition point
- Wear Rings – Renewable, the precision-made bronze wearing rings are pressed into the casing and/or adaptors as required and are easily replaced in the field
