API Standard Pump OH5 – KV5

API Standard Pump OH5 – KV5

The pump KV5 (OH5) is a vertically inline mounted close-coupled, radial case, single-stage, single suction, heavy-duty centrifugal process pump. It is manufactured as per API 610. The inline configuration is a compact pumping solution with a mounting impeller to an extended motor drive shaft, presenting a very compact pumping solution. The KV5 (OH5) offers a space saving footprint and eliminates the need for expensive baseplates. This pump is also available in the KV3 (OH3) for high-temperature operations.

Max Head:Up to 180 m Max capacity:Up to 400 m3/hr
