Sundyne has announced the launch of their low NPSHr, high-flow pump.
The Sundyne LMV-803Lr is an API 610 compliant pump available in either OH3 or OH5 motor mounting configuration that provides ultra-low NPSHr performance – approximately 5 ft (1.5 m), across the entire performance range – for flows to 800 GPM (180 m3 / hr) and heads to 1000 ft (305 m). The ultra-low NPSHr allows the pump to be installed at grade level. The vertical design is ideal for use in refineries, NGL, petrochemical and chemical plants, as well as handling light hydrocarbon handling services, such as bottom pumps for de-ethanizers.
Based on highly reliable Sundyne direct drive technology, the LMV-803Lr is our most rugged pump to date, delivering a compact footprint, low vibration and increased efficiency. Featuring innovative Sundyne inducer technology and a newly redesigned backswept impeller, this model is capable of meeting lower NPSHr requirements than either BB2 or VS style pumps without risk of cavitation. The LMV-803Lr also boasts a robust new 6x4 casing that is engineered to operate reliability in extremely high-pressure applications with maximum case working pressures equivalent to 1000 psig.
