Sidesloper™ Vertical Wet Well - Section 5

P2K Pumps

drawing-ffThe P2K series pumps may be used for vertical wet well applications. The vertical pump would include a "V" version (such as P2KV _____) which does not have wheels. The pump is mounted in a stainless cooling sleeve with an inlet strainer and is often provided with a quick disconnect assembly for easy removal and installation. GunnCo offers an inlet stand to elevate the pump above the floor of the wet well as sediment tends to build up in a wet well over time and eventually the wet well may need cleaning to remove.

Another arrangement is to suspend the pump so it is about a foot off the floor of the well.

Pumps under 2 H.P. may not require a cooling sleeve for operation. This is important in applications where the pump may be installed in clean out pipes or small dewatering casings.

Another option is an extended strainer housing which can be provided where there are excessive debris materials, particularly in applications where the stream may contain include shavings from HDPE pipe fabrication.

The P3K Series may handle silts better and The P3KH includes an anger to feed the solids into the impeller. GunnCo also offers true waste water pumps designed for handling sewage for applications that might include other waste streams.

Use of guide rail systems is another option and should be carefully considered with service in mind and are determined by the pump selection. Under no circumstances should a pump be installed that requires entry into the hazardous wet well for maintenance.

Many vertical wells use an alternating duplex pump arrangement.

Most vertical installations do not require indicating level control panels and may use a float based level controller. Simplex and duplex panel specifications are provided in Section 4.

Typical system specifications for vertical applications are available from GunnCo upon request.

We offer self-priming and various types of electric submersible pumps. Pumps and complete packages with sumps are available from GunnCo.
