The Azcue VB and VA ATEX Vertical Inline Pumps are large, robust and higher performance pumps with higher pressure and flow capabilities than the other Azcue vertical centrifugal pumps. The VA is the same as the VB but with bottom suction rather than line, giving you the option depending upon the installation at hand. Both models are ideal solutions for applications involving the high volume transfer of relatively clean liquids such as water and thin fuels, where space saving may be important.

The VB & VA vertical inline centrifugal pumps are long coupled, making it easier to maintain as you can get to the pump head without removing the motor first, and more durable for continuous use as it has additional bearings in the pump head to share the strain of operation. A further benefit of this centrifugal water pump are the separate shafts in the pump head and motor, meaning that if there is a problem with one, the whole thing doesn’t need to be replaced. This model has wear rings, which means there is small clearance between the impeller and pump casing preventing wear to these parts. Wearing rings are designed to be replaced periodically, preventing the more expensive replacement of the impeller or casing.

These Azcue single stage centrifugal pumps are available to be supplied with an external priming pump either VP (vacuum priming pump) or EP (electric priming pump). With a vacuum priming pump it can dry run for a short period of time, making this a better option than an electric priming pump for longer suction distances.

The VB & VA Vertical Inline Centrifugal Pump is manufactured by Azcue Pumps. As the official UK Agent of Azcue Pumps, Castle Pumps are a leading Bombas Azcue supplier in the UK with unrivalled technical knowledge. Azcue Pumps are a European manufacturer with over 100 years’ experience in type approved pumps for marine and offshore applications. Today their pumps are installed in more than 10,000 vessel builds. Whilst originally developed for the marine market, Azcue Pumps’ reliability in applications that depend upon the safety and operation of a ship saw them become a desirable product in industrial applications involving water, fuels and lubricants.

One of the key benefits of the VA & VB vertical inline pump like the other models in the Azcue range, is that is benefits from interchangeable parts for reduced on board stockholding. We guarantee supply of spares for 15 years from model discontinuation for long term pump servicing., saving the user from having to prematurely replace a pump that just needs maintenance.

Azcue VB & VA vertical centrifugal pumps are cast, machined and assembled at their foundry in Spain. Each pump is manufactured to order and designed to fit your process, resulting in greater efficiency and lower overall lifetime cost in terms of wear and energy consumption. Before leaving the factory, pumps are individually tested to confirm performance meets the requirements set out in your enquiry.

Single stage centrifugal pumps are the most common pump type for the transfer of low viscosity fluids in high flow rate and relatively low-pressure installations. The centrifugal pump design is often associated with the transfer of water, but is also a popular solution for handling thin fuels and chemicals. Their high flow capabilities combined with its motor being located above the pump head, makes the Azcue VA & VB vertical inline pump suited to large volume applications where installation space may be limited including:

Marine Applications:Industrial Applications:
  • Sea water cooling pump for large equipment and vessels
  • General sea water service
  • Grey water with low solid content
  • Aquaculture recirculation systems
  • Large scale marine ballast water pumping
  • Low viscosity fuel and lubrication transfer
  • Boiler feed pump
  • Closed loop HVAC circulating and cooling tower pumps
  • High volume general water transfer, supply and service
  • Waste water with low solid content
  • Water pressure booster pump
  • Swimming pool recirculation systems
  • Low viscosity fuel and lubrication transfer
  • Boiler feed pump
