DOUBLE SUCTION PUMP D023
The closed impeller has an inlet on either side, lowering the friction resistance of the incoming fluid.
These pumps operate with about a 25% reduction in NPSHR compared to a similar size end suction centrifugal pump
These pumps are used for high capacity applications, or any time you need a low net positive suction head required (NPSHR).
The double suction also reduces axial thrusting of the impeller
