The casing of a split casing pump is split either vertically or horizontally to allow access to internal pump parts for maintenance.In these pumps, the impeller has bearings on both sides, so they are between-the-bearing pumps. Since split pumps have a more planted impeller, they are more efficient than frame-mounted pumps.
Horizontal split case pumps are the most common and are highly efficient. They are also stable at variable speeds and can operate in a variety of suction orientations due to their between-the-bearings design.
Frequently asked questions
What is the difference between an end suction pump and split case pump?
Horizontal split case pumps are double suction pumps and can handle a large amount of water. End suction pumps are single suction pumps. Split case pumps are comparatively more durable and easy to maintain when compared to split case pump.
What are the benefits of split case pump?
Features like in-between-bearing designs of the split case pumps enable them to keep on working for longer periods without needing frequent maintenance.
