Vertically Suspended line-Shaft Pumps


The VS serie pumps are suspended vertical line-shaft, single stage pumps with base plate. The main components (casing, cover, pump flanges etc.) are based on our MU or MCA series pumps.


The VS serie pumps are used to pump clean or dirty fluids that may contain suspended abrasive materials. They are especially useful for many industrial processes, supply drainage, etc..
Thanks to their versatility and material diversification, the VS serie handle and pump a wide range of fluids.


The standard pumps of the VS serie are manufactured with closed impeller and rectangular base plate. The range is wide and includes different impeller options and base plate shapes.
They can be adapted to any type and size of tanks, as each model is available in 60 different models and shaft lengths up to 7,5 m.


The remarkably sturdy design of the VS serie pumps offers many significant features, carefully chosen and calculated, making these pumps comply with the most demanding specifications.

Motor frame and bearing box: motor frame ensures overall stiffness and motor support. Alternative solutions with grease lubricated dual ball bearing for standard execution and with bearing cooling chamber for high temperature fluids are available.

pump5Base plate: rectangular base plate in standard execution. Optional versions with circular base plate, according to DIN, ANSI or on drawing measures particularly useful for installation in cylindric tanks are also available. The over thicknessed base plate is calculated to support the overhang and the assembly stresses.

Bushing and tightness: the pump standard sealing on mounting plate is by means of a lip sealing ring. Alternatively also the following executions are available: soft packing – mechanical seal. The standard bushes are lubricated by the pumped fluid. They can also be lubricated by grease, oil, water or other fluids through an external system. Bush grooves ensure the lubrication.

Axial coupling and adjustment: the two-half flexible couplings between the motor and the pump prevent the motor from pump stresses. Alignment between the pump and the motor is not required since the coupling lantern is designed to avoid misalignments. The two sections of the pump shaft are coupled through an intermediate coupling.

Pipes and flanges: flanged column pipe and delivery pipe of VS series are made in welded steel. The discharge flange is UNI-PN 10 standard with „RF“ finishing. Maximum length of each column pipe is approx. 1250 mm., according to the pump size. The flanged pipes are connected to each other through an intermediate bearing housing the bush to guide the pump shaft. The column pipe has holes drilled in its lower part, reducing vortex effect once the fluid level decreases.

Pump suction: the wet well standard version is with flanged filter. Alternative executions with suction bell or feeder line for wet well or with 90° elbow pipe with lower support for dry well, are available.


Recessed impeller torque flow pump


Thanks to the shape of the impeller and to its recessed position in the casing, MCA pumps are suitable for pumping viscous and pasty liquids containing suspended solids.

Main Features

Impeller: the impeller is of open type with radial blades. The impeller is provided with backpump6vanes to balance the axial thrust and the pressure in the stuffing box area.

Casing: volute type with ample section end suction and top discharge nozzles. The flanges are NP 10 according to UNI-EN-DIN-JIS- standards.

Shaft sealing: basic pump version is mechanically sealed but soft packing with optional external flushing with clean fluid can be fitted. In case of dangerous liquids pumps can be provided with double mechanical seals completed with barrier system. For high temperature the pump can be provided with a cooling chamber. The fitting of single or double acting mechanical seals flushed from external source by suitable media can also be possible.


Standard constructions are in cast iron, carbon steel, stainless steels. Any other material combinations can be supplied.


Sewage treatment plants, paper industry, food and sugar industry and generally to convey all liquids with suspended solids.


Capacity up to 500 m3/h.
Total dynamic head up to 100 meters.
Speed from 750 to 3500 rpm.

Working Principle

The special impeller shape and its position in the back part of the casing operates in such a way that the solid particles in suspension flow through the casing without touching the impeller directly.



Side Chanel Pump


For drinking water and industrial purposes, for sea water, for automatic system with hydrophore tank, for conveying acid and alcaline liquids, petrol and light oils, for condensate and liquid with vapours, for food and pharmaceutical products.

Design Feature

BT pumps are self-priming side channel multistage pumps. The impellers are star shaped, hydraulicapump7lly balanced to reduce axial thrust on the bearings. Bearings are external, life grease lubricated. The pumps have a very low NPSH value that allows operation with suction lift up to 8 meters. Their working principle makes these pumps particularly suitable to transfer liquid gas/vapour mixtures. Basic design pumps are mechanically sealed. It is possible to fit double mechanical seals when handling hot liquids which may solidify, toxic, aggressive and corrosive media. In this case the seals are flushed from an external source with a fluid compatible with pumped medium at a slightly higher pressure.

Operating Pressures and Temperatures

Up to 120°C: 40 bar
Above to 120°C: 16 bar
Max operating temperature: with mechanical seal 160°C
Minimum operation temperature: -10°C


Construction is provided in the following materials: cast-iron, different types of bronze and stainless steel. Special constructions according to Naval Rules: shock-proof, noise-proof, vibration-proof, nonmagnetic versions.




Main engine lubrication pump, single or multiple stage

The concentric diffuser avoids radial load on impeller and make the pump reliable throughout its operational life. Ball bearing and shaft bushing are lubricated by the pumped oil to reduce maintenance. The length of the pump can be sized to the required specific installation.
The base plate can be manufactured according to the customer requirement.


Capacity: 100-550 m3/h

Fire Fighting Naval Pumps


The electric pump mod. MM 100/125 for 65 and 130 T/h with horizontal split casing consists of a pumping body ofpump8 the centrifugal type and of two opposite impellers. The division of the body is on the horizontal plane in order to reduce the axial thrust to minimum and to simplify maintenance.

The electric motor is an asynchronous three-phases type, connected to the pump by means of an elastic coupling mounted on a frame structure which is made of electro welded steel.

The special balancing of the pump and the specific construction of the base determine the sturdiness of the unit which permits to reduce to a minimum the structural noise level transmitted to the hull.

Normally, the base is fixed to the hull after having introduced four resilient blocks which filter the noise transmitted by high frequencies.

Approval Test are carried out according to the standards shown in table UMM 1008, May 1984 edition, of Navalcostarmi: inspection and checking of integrity, test of hydrostatic pressure, test of voltage applied between electric phases, performance test, test of sealing and alignment, endurance test over 700 hours with more than 100 start-ups, test of operation in inclined position, detecting of self-induced vibrations and structural noise, impact and mechanical ambient vibration test, test of performances after impact and vibrations, disassembling and restoring.


– Upper/lower body: GcuSn10Zn2Ni2 UNI 7013-72 alloy
– Shaft: stainless steel X2CrNiMo 1712 UNI 6900-71
– Impellers: GcuAl11FeNi4 UNI 5275-63 alloy

The hydraulic body presents special features: its structure ensures maximum reliability both for shock test and for possible corrosion due to electrical and fluids dynamics phenomena. Furthermore, the hydraulics of the pump body permits regular running both for 65 T/h and 130 T/h flow-rate. All components are perfectly the same including the centrifugal impellers, a big advantage for spares parts supplies. There is practically no need for maintenance since the bearings are grease-lubricated forever. The sealing is a mechanical type and enables running of the pump in opposite direction without any specific problem. As requested by UMM 1008 standards, in case of emergency the mechanical seal can be replaced by a soft packing.
