The Azcue VM & VR ATEX Vertical Inline Pumps are large, heavy duty vertical centrifugal pumps, with large flow and pressure abilities compared to those of the LN range. Ideal for applications concerning relatively clean liquids like water and thin fuels, these ATEX pumps are also great for applications where space saving is important. Dissimilar to the VM, the VR single stage centrifugal pump benefits from an additional ball bearing between the pump and motor which results in a share in the strain of operation, making it more robust than the VM.

The Azcue VM/VR vertical inline centrifugal pump is a back pull out model, meaning the motor can be removed from the pump without the need to disconnect the pump from its installation completely; a time saving benefit when it comes to maintenance. These centrifugal water pumps are technically close coupled, but thanks to its lantern bracket, space is provided between the pump and motor whilst still being compact – meaning if the seal wears, no fluid will fall into the motor. Small clearance between the impeller and pump casing is due to this model’s wear rings and ensures the parts aren’t subjected to wear. Designed to be replaced periodically, wearing rings prevent the costly replacement of the impeller or casing.

These Azcue vertical inline pumps have separate shafts in the pump head and motor, so that if there’s an issue with one shaft, there is no need to replace it all – an advantage which other pumps in the market don’t benefit from as they have one continuous shaft from head to motor. The VM and VR ATEX close coupled centrifugal pumps are available with an external vacuum or electric priming pump. Where suction conditions are more difficult, versions with a vacuum priming pump should be chosen due to its ability to dry run for short periods of time.

Fleet Management

Castle Pumps have built solid relationships with many industrial pump manufacturers, which gives us confidence in our ability to meet tight project time scales. This case study illustrates this, where we were able to get two ballast pumps manufactured and marine certified in three weeks less than the industry standard lead time.
