Weir Minerals Floway Pumps Introduces the VTSP

02.03.2015

Weir Minerals Floway Pumps introduces the new Floway VTSP - vertical turbine slurry pump - addressing the industry demand for a longer lasting, abrasives solids handling vertical turbine pump. Following several years of design innovation, research and testing, the VTSP has been demonstrated to last four times longer in solids handling services when compared and tested with the Floway vertical turbine pump bearing assembly.

The patented VTSP bearing design allows for continuous operation in services with a maximum solid content of 10 percent by weight and excursions of 20 percent by weight during temporary upset conditions. This design results in a longer mean time between required maintenance and an overall reduction in the customer’s total operational costs.

“We listened to our customers when they expressed the need for an abrasives solids handling vertical turbine pump which would last longer than the available designs in the market today,” said Barry Cockerham, Managing Director of Weir Minerals Floway Pumps. “We responded with the VTSP which we believe will provide extended life while maintaining the highest product quality.”

“Wear life is critical in many pump applications and the existing technology was not producing acceptable results”, said Daniel Boldt, Product Engineering Manager at Weir Minerals Floway Pumps. “Due to the demanding nature of abrasive services, design innovation was required to realize a significant improvement in wear life. After extensive design work and both in-house and field testing, the new VTSP product line demonstrated a notable advantage over traditional vertical turbine designs.”

Weir Minerals Floway Pumps has supplied pumps and processing products for the Minerals industry for over 80 years.
