Pump with left side discharge

Pump with left side discharge

Pump with left side discharge

I have some old Ingersoll Rand pumps I may replace. The pumps are left side discharge (meaning the discharge vertical, but is offset to the left of the suction centerline when looking at the pump from suction side). I have talked with a few of my local pump vendors and everything they offer is either right offset or centered. Also searched some of the larger OEMs websites and didn't find any. Any one know of a left offset discharge pump (that will meet the following)?

4” inlet
3” outlet
130 ft head
450 gpm
Water @ 200°F
Would prefer something close coupled.

RE: Pump with left side discharge

What you want is a CCW rotation. An API 610 horizontal would be that, but way overkill for your application. I have a vague feeling I've seen such a thing around, but it will be next week before I can look into that further. And I may be completely wrong in thinking that I've seen one somewhere in my library.

RE: Pump with left side discharge

Definitely not looking for an API 610 pump. Something like a B&G AC2000 or e-1531 is what I want but they are all right side. The issue I have is the current pumps are left side discharge, so the header configuration and/or the existing pedestals will also need to be changed if I change the pumps. I hope to essentially find a newer model of what is currently installed (Ingersoll Rand CRVL).

RE: Pump with left side discharge

Don't see any way to private message you, and I'd hate to be accused of spamming the forum, but the company I work for does make pumps in this configuration.- R.S. Corcoran co.- you can look us up on the web.
