The self balancing multistage pump by virtue of it's design completely eliminates any of the threats posed by axial thrust.
High Lift, High Volume - Multi-stage Clear Water Pumps
The Grifo Self Balancing multistage centrifugal pump units are suitable for pumping clear water at a maximum temperature of 105°C. They represent a major advance in high lift multistage pump technology and are designed to meet the stringent demands of modern day mine dewatering methods. Scamont Engineering manufactures four different pump models for effective operation under varying conditions.
Operates at 1490 rpm, pumping to heads of 1 460 metres at a volumetric output of 260 litres per second.
Operates at 1490 rpm, pumping to heads of 1 211 metres at a volumetric output of 143 litres per second.
Operates at 1490 rpm, pumping to heads of 614 metres at a volumetric output of 65 litres per second.
Operates at 2980 rpm, pumping to heads of 2 035 metres at a volumetric output of 130 litres per second.
The pump units are robustly constructed to withstand the harshest mining environments, and incorporate modern hydraulic design principles.
Conventional balancing discs and the associated maintenance problems are completely excluded by fitment of opposing impellers on either side of the centre casing section which eliminate hydraulic thrust.
Spun cast bronze impellers ensure mechanical and metallurgical integrity.
