VCB Series
Vertical Cantilever on Raft

hero

Our vertical cantilever raft pump offers innumerable advantages over other types of vertical pumps, mainly based on its constructive robustness, since the main point of failure present in other designs, the mechanical seal, is eliminated. In addition, it has low maintenance level, no transmission of axial force to the motor, short wingspan, better center of gravity, better performance in the application, since it can work with pools of lower level between the bottom and the free surface of fluid, also known as water mirror, among many other operational advantages that make it the best solution in the market.


Applications:

• Fresh Water Pumping
• River, pond, dam Pumping.
• PLS-ILS-Refining Water Pumping
• Mine Dewatering
• Truck Cleaning
• Pool Cleaning
• Residual Liquids
• Wastewater Treatment and Industrial Applications, in general.
• Water Recovery from Tailing Tanks
• Firefighting Installations
• Puddle Draining, Drainage systems.
• Solution Transfer
• Capture and Impulsion of Salt Water to process installations.

Construction Aspects

There are multiple designs of Flotation Systems, among which we can mention, octagonal type raft, monolithic or bi-parted, skid design and modular system with pontoons (docks) that allow greater ease in transportation, in all cases manufactured in HDPE material ensuring stability and an inclination of 45 ° without risk of tipping, it considers watertight compartments to prevent the equipment from sinking in case of breakage in one of its walls.

Our Cantilever Vertical Pump works balanced, since the raft is homogeneous in its dimensions, in addition, the verticality of the equipment is guaranteed.

The design demands a lower level of submersion, it works successfully in pools of unlimited depth and can even operate in those that have 50 cms from the free surface of fluid to the bottom of the reservoir.

shape

The impeller is cantilevered and supported on its bearing assembly. It has a lower bushing that works submerged and acts only as a restrictor bushing to ensure the efficiency of the assembly. The first critical speed is 30% above its maximum allowable rated speed.

It has fewer points of failure since it does not use mechanical seal, less maintainability since it has only one stage, and it does not have bushings subject to friction and wear.

The operating cost of the VCB Series for VS5 operating conditions is very low, even up to 18,000 hours without any service, only taking care of the grease lubrication of the pump and motor bearings.

Our Double Volute design allows to reduce the "radial force" to a minimum and constant value, independent of the point where the pump operation is adjusted. This translates into more reliable equipment and longer component life.

The frame structure is manufactured in A36 structural steel with anti-corrosive paint treatment, in addition,
structural resistance studies for materials and structures are carried out.

Floating Cantilever Pumps with Industry 4.0 Technology

The Floating Systems Sensing and Monitoring System performs Data Capture, Storage, Local Processing, Transmission, Display and Analysis of Parameters associated with our fluid handling solutions, in areas that include the following topics:

· Structural, Electrical, Mechanical and Process Variables
· Remote Inspection
· Algae Control
· Water Quality Analysis

The data captured and processed in-situ are sent through gateways via cellular or satellite link to our platform for its deployment through widgets in customized Dashboards, analysis and elaboration of hierarchical reports of the information collected in the field.

Algae Control Systems

Associated with climate change and its impact in different latitudes, the proliferation of algae in water bodies (continental and oceanic), presents a serious problem to the processes associated with the use of the vital element. These systems are self-manageable and energetically autonomous to treat and reduce the concentration of algae proliferation through the use of ultrasound.
