The Goulds 5150 VJC Vertical Cantilever Pump is designed to handle corrosive and/or extremely abrasive slurries. This pump is typically found at steel mills, alumina refineries, and phosphoric acid plants. Our customer, Noranda Alumina in Gramercy, Louisiana, was in need of a better solution for these vertical pumps. Isomag bearing isolators proved to be the perfect solution for this harsh flooded environment.
What are the features of Isomag bearing isolators and why are they so beneficial to your Goulds 5150?
The benefits of an Isomag bearing isolator are:
Magnetic Closing Force – “Magnetic energy is used to create a closing force keeping the seal faces in positive contact.”
Seals in all positions: horizontal, vertical, angled, rock and roll
Seals in all types of bearing lubrication: splash, flooded, forced, oil mist
Seals during stand-by
Enables use of closed-loop oil mist systems
Easily installed by hand
Removable without damage to the isolator or equipment
Face seal that rotates with the shaft
Your Goulds 5150 will benefit from Isomag bearing isolators by providing a positive seal that prevents leakage, protects against the ingress of internal contamination, and provides years of reliable service. As the pioneers in the magnetic bearing isolator market, Isomag continues to bring innovation and technology in an effort to extend rotating equipment life.
