The Azcue VM & VR VP/EP Self Priming Vertical Inline Pumps are an ATEX rated version of the VM & VR close coupled vertical centrifugal pumps. They come complete with a vacuum or electric priming pump and are suitable for applications difficult suction conditions. For longer distances, a vacuum priming pump is recommended due to its ability to dry run for short periods of time.

The VM & VR vertical inline centrifugal pumps are an alternative to the LN, but are more heavy duty and bigger, with higher flow and pressure capabilities. Most suited to applications involving relatively clean liquids such as water and thin fuels, they are also ideal for installations where space saving is important. Unlike the VM, the VR single stage centrifugal pump has an extra ball bearing between the pump and motor which helps share the strain of operation, resulting in it being a more robust option than the other within critical applications.

The Azcue VM/VR vertical self priming centrifugal pumps benefits from a back pull out design whereby the motor is able to be removed from the pump, without having to completely disconnect it from its installation – a time saving advantage during maintenance. Strictly speaking this pump is close coupled, but these centrifugal water pumps have a lantern bracket which creates space between the pump and motor, whilst still being compact. So if the seal ever wears, fluid won’t fall into the motor.

These Azcue ATEX vertical inline pumps have one shaft in the pump head and another in the motor, so that if an issue was to ever occur in one shaft, there is no need to replace it all – a benefit which alternative pumps on the market don’t possess, as they have a continuous shaft from head to motor. Also included are wear rings, generating a small clearance between the impeller and pump casing, resulting in less wear to parts. Wearing rings only need to be replaced periodically, stopping the more costly replacement of the impeller or casing.
