Turo Vortex Pump: The Most Efficient Grit Pump
Fully Recessed “Vortex” Impeller
- Egger’s 8 vane impeller designed to handle the rigors of pumping grit
- Lower cost of ownership
- 85% of the fluid never comes in contact with the impeller
- Less Wear, Less Shear
- Full port solids handling
- Non-clog impeller design
Superior Hydraulic Efficiency
- Lower cost of ownership
- Twice our competitors efficiency
- 1/2 the horsepower
- Max. Flowrate Turo range = 3170 gpm
Designed for Longer Life
- Axial Spiral Casing design helps channel flow thru pump and reduce wear causing recirculation
- Fully Recessed – 85% of fluid never contacts impeller
- Impeller is centered in casing to reduce radial thrust loads
- Smaller “cut-water” helps to balance radial thrusts
Let us help you choose the right pump for your application.
Design Guidelines: Grit Pumping and Piping Systems
• Keep suction piping as short as possible, approximately 10 to 15 feet.
• Pipe line velocity: 6 to 8 fps (feet per second)
• Provide cleanouts and flushing connections
• Avoid the use of check valves
• Use full port pinch valves for isolation
• Use hardened metal fully recessed “vortex” impeller pumps
• Use pumps having flushed mechanical seals or flush-less hydrodynamic seals
Materials of Construction
Abrasion resistant construction
- ASTM A532 IIA White Iron materials
- 316 Stainless steel shaft sleeve
- Seals include: single, double, tandem, or Hydrodynamic slurry seal
- Size: up to 8 inch
- Flows: 20 to 2220 gpm
- Differential Head: up to 460 feet
- Pressures: up to 440 psig
- Temperatures: up to 355 deg. F
• Use 3.0 inch minimum diameter piping
• Use a piping system which is abrasion resistant like glass lines ductile
• Use long radius 90 or 45-degree elbows or bends
• Use dedicated suction and discharge piping runs for multiple pumps
Recessed Pump Technology Good Enough to Pump a Chain
Self Cleaning Impeller
We can handle your toughest pumping applications.
As there are only five standardized bearing housing sizes, spare parts can be easily interchanged between many pump types and hydraulic systems. The storage of spare parts is thus optimized.
Flexibility in the choice of seal due to Varioseal®
Egger pumps have a standardized sealing space for mechanical seals and gland packing rings. This allows for a great flexibility in the choice of seal. Read more about EGGER Varioseal options.
One pump shaft for all pumped media
The pump shaft is not in contact with the pumped media and is sealed by a standardized shaft sleeve. Thus, no special materialis required for the shaft.
Thanks to the Egger modular system and our systematic storage of assemblies, a quick delivery of spare parts can be guaranteed.
The Best Pump Solution For Your Application
At Egger, we strive to reduce your operations budget by supplying our pump technology which has the lowest life cycle cost available. Factors affecting life cycle cost include initial purchase price, maintenance over the life of the pump, and energy consumed.
1947: Swiss Engineered Pumps
EGGER, founded by Mr. Emile Egger, is an independent family-owned Swiss pump manufacturer specializing in handling solids and aerated liquids.
A key quality feature is that the whole production process – from development through functional testing – is carried out in-house under controlled conditions by 350 skilled employees.
Thanks to the contribution of each member of our team, we have succeeded in maintaining our excellent level of quality; the highest even by typical Swiss standards.
Our unique background has been achieved by our ability to identify with and listen to each of our business partners. These partners have many different specific needs, however, all can be sure of
one thing: EGGER has the unique solution for them.
“Finally, a grit pump which is efficient, is ½ the horsepower of the competition, and provides superior wear resistance.”Paul Nelsen, B.S.M.E., MBA
NEWS & UPDATES
In the old days, antiquated grit pump technologies were designed using a cup-style impeller which included a rim around the outside diameter or circumference of the impeller. This style impeller cannot be trimmed and requires use of v-belts to change the pump speed to adjust the discharge head pressure or flow.read more
