Goulds i-FRAME Bearing Housings
To get superior MTBF you need two things: Optimum pump hydraulics and a robust pump structure. The new i-FRAME housings delivers on the second point by providing a premium robust housing with unique new and improved features that raises the bar on what you can expect from your pump’s long term performance. These i-FRAME bearing housings include the new patented one piece design bearing housing for the ball-ball bearing arrangement, as well as the patent pending split bearing housing for the sleeve-ball and sleeve-tilt pad bearing arrangement.
The i-FRAME bearing housings have enhanced air cooling with axial fans and achieves metal and oil temperature reductions of up to 30° F from previous design without the need for cooling water. All shaft ends on the NDE side come standard with a guarded extension to accept a fan for ease of field retrofit, so if your process needs change the fan can be fitted without the need for expensive pump disassembly.
Ideal for Chemicals, Petrochemicals; Oil & Gas Refining; Pipeline. Features include:
- Premium robust housing with unique new and improved features that raises the bar on what you can expect from your pump’s long term performance
- Enhanced air cooling with axial fans
- All shaft ends on the NDE side come standard with a guarded extension to accept a fan for ease of field retrofit
- Patent pending filter cartridge that continuously works to scrub dissolved water from the bearing oil utilizing specifically engineered moisture absorbing materials built into the filter
- i-ALERT monitoring solution that provides class leading continuous machine monitoring with comprehensive wireless reporting including diagnostic quality vibration FFTs and operating history to the mobile phone or tablet of your choice
- The bearing housings come equipped as standard with constant level oilers*, sight window* and provisions for instrumentation including: RTD’s, proximity probes*, and accelerometers
Goulds Model VICR Pump
The VICR, an API 610th VS6 vertical multi-stage low flow, high-head pump is a reliable and compact pump for high-head applications with extended life and easy maintenance.
The VICR has a competitive advantage due to its compact design and reduced number of stages from the radial impeller configuration that can produce more head per stage. The compact product configuration with a small footprint is ideal for installations with limited space.
Ideal for Chemicals, Petrochemicals; Oil & Gas Refining. Features include:
- Compact product configuration with small footprint, ideal for installations with limited space
- Sound mechanical designs with structural and rotor dynamic analyses to ensure low vibration and long equipment life cycle
- Swirl breakers in the suction bell that allow smooth entry of liquid into the first stage impeller eye.
- Optional air cooled thrust pot that is API compliant
- High suction pressure/Up-thrust: Patent pending dual bearing arrangement that handles rotor up-thrust and to keep the shaft straight under high suction pressure including a thrust balance device with non-galling running clearances.
- Reliable vertically-suspended rotor system with multiple radial impellers capable of producing high-head outputs at nominal motor speeds
- Radially split, double-walled pressure casings with metal-to-metal fits and controlled-compression gaskets, ideal for light hydrocarbon applications
- With low specific speed Ns, the VICR is better suited to increase reliability, decrease investment and maintenance costs while reducing the can length, hence less excavation is required
- Developed with Pro-E modeling in 3D to achieve effective data mapping and design visualization.
- Dynamic flow models that ensure stable performance and consistent high efficiency levels.
- i-ALERT Monitoring Solution that provides continuous machine monitoring with comprehensive wireless reporting including diagnostic quality vibration FFTs and operating history to a mobile phone or tablet
- The VICR has a competitive advantage due to its compact design and reduced number of stages from the radial impeller configuration that can produce more head per stage.
- Typical fluids are Pentane, Propane, LPG and other light hydrocarbons with specific gravities ranging from 0.2 to 1.0
