Pumps for high-volume severe-duty applications
Blackmer's System One centrifugal pumps are designed for high-volume, severe-duty applications such as those in the water and wastewater industries. Designed around the seal where 90% of pump failures occur, the System One has a stiffer heavy-duty shaft and larger bearings resulting in the widest operational window off the Best Efficiency Point (BEP) than any standard process pump. This means facility operators can expect the System One pump to improve mean time between failures to reduce maintenance costs.
The System One is available on four frame variations, with multiple size configurations for nearly any water and wastewater transfer application. Each frame type offers the lowest L3/D4 stiffness ratio of any competitive size pump. The Frame S is a heavy-duty alternative to standard small frame pumps, delivering capacities to 102 m3/hr (450 gpm) while meeting ASME/ANSI dimensional specifications. The Frame A and LD17 have the most stable shaft for its size in the industry that dramatically reduces bearing, mechanical seal and shaft failures, while reaching capacities of 320 m3/hr (1,400 gpm). The Frame M is the only ASME/ANSI B73.1 pump of its size that offers an available centerline mount for high temperature applications. The Frame M pump also includes an optional left/right side discharge and vertical mount configuration.
In addition to the three frame styles, the System One line of pumps includes a Vortex pump version. The Vortex pump can handle entrained solids without clogging. Available in the LD17 configuration, the Vortex pump has capacities to 340 m3/hr (1,500 gpm).
