A horizontal split case pump is a unique type of centrifugal pump whose casing is divided into two distinct chambers, which is different from inline or end suction pumps that are assembled with the suction nozzle, discharge nozzle, and casing in one chamber.
Single Stage Split Case Pumps 7A.0 Furnish and install as outlined in the plans and described in these specifications Federal Pump Series SC II Horizontal Split Case single stage double suction centrifugal pump designed to deliver the scheduled flow rate at the scheduled total dynamic head in feet.
Horizontal Split Case pumps are given their name due to the split design of the casing, where the casing cover can be lifted off of the pump to expose the internal components. These components include the impeller, bearings, pump shaft, and so on.
The horizontal split case centrifugal pump is more than 100 years old, yet still is the workhorse of the HVAC pump industry. If a lot of water has to be moved efficiently with a minimum of fuss, no other pump can outperform it. This article describes five reasons why an HSC pump is useful.
Double Suction Single Impeller: In general, a horizontal split case pump is identified as, and referred to, this type of construction with bulging suction chambers on both sides of the pump casing and in line Suction and Discharge nozzles. The pumps are primarily designed to handle large flow rates for low to high head applications.
