Horizontal Split Case Fire Pump

 

 

These pumps use a between-the-bearings design, which means that the impeller is supported by bearings on both sides. This design provides more support for the impeller and enables it to rotate more efficiently under stress. HSC pumps place the suction and discharge nozzles (flanges) in the bottom half of the casing, on opposite sides. The impeller shaft is positioned slightly above the flanges. This sturdy but simple design is particularly suitable for higher flow applications, because it reduces thrust loads on the pump shaft and allows for operation over a broad range of flows.
