SAER Split Casing SKD: Redifinning a New Standard

20.07.2022
SAER contribution to sustainable development stands out in its commitments to design efficient and easy-to-maintain products. Focusing on the range of split casing pumps, SAER SKD series includes more than 80 models (flow up to 4500 m³/ flow and 300 m of head, from DN 80 till DN 500).

In addition to the usual advantages, thanks to the axially split casing construction (ease of installation, robustness, possibility of maintenance of the rotating parts without removing the pump from the system), SAER SKD pumps are standardly equipped with: double volute design to minimize radial thrust on bearings  (bearings rating life > 2x105 hours), eliminating  the radial stresses acting on the rotor and reducing vibrations  and  noises.

Plus, the double wear ring  protects the casing and the impeller: the impeller, body and cover are protected from reciprocal wear, increasing the machine operating time, reducing time and cost of maintenance.

A peculiarity of the range is the wide choice of models and configurations available. Indeed   SKD can be supplied both  for horizontal or vertical installations, plus the pump may be  produced with  several combination of materials (cast iron, ductile iron, bronze, stainless steel 316 and super duplex) and types of seals (gland packing, mechanical seal, cartridge etc). The range can be supplied as complete set with motor or bareshaft, or as complete group without motor. Thanks to the Italian production, the delivery time is exceptional, as average is around 12 working days.

100% of the production is tested in SAER facilities, where any trial can be performed according to the given requests, and main approvals can be directly obtained there.
