PART II - PRODUCTS
2.01
GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The pump shall be a two-stage centrifugal horizontal framemounted end suction pump, Aurora Pump Model 374 or pre-approved equal.
Pre-approval must be obtained a minimum of ten days before bid date.
2.02
MATERIALS OF CONSTRUCTION
Casing...............................Cast Iron (ASTM A48)
Impeller.............................Cast Iron (ASTM A48)
Shaft................................Steel (AISI C1045)
Case Wear Ring.......................Bronze (ASTM B62)
Shaft Sleeve.........................Bronze (ASTM B62)
Power Frame..........................Cast Iron (ASTM A48)
Stuffing Box Cover...................Cast Iron (ASTM A48)
2.03
CASING
The casing will be of the end suction hydraulic design, with a
tangential NPT threaded discharge outlet. Internal passages with
opposed cutwaters to balance hydraulic thrust loads shall transfer the
pumped fluid from the first to the second stage. The casing will be
fitted with a removable front cover to allow access to the second stage
impeller and impeller fastener.
2.04
IMPELLERS
The impellers shall be of the enclosed type. They shall be
finished all over, the exterior being turned and the interior being
finished smooth and cleaned of all burrs, trimmings, and
irregularities. The impellers shall be dynamically balanced. The
impellers will be keyed to the shaft, and fastened with a washer,
gasket and cap screw.
2.05
CASE WEARING RINGS
The pump casing and stuffing box cover shall each be fitted with
a case wear ring to minimize abrasive and corrosive wear to the casing.
An additional case wear ring shall be supplied between the impellers.
The case wear ring shall be of the radial type, press fitted into the
casing.
2.06
STUFFING BOX
The stuffing box shall be integrally cast with an NPT threaded
suction inlet and mounting bracket. An adequate area for internal
recirculation of the pumped fluid and a flush line from the pump casing
to the stuffing box shall be provided. The stuffing box shall be
designed to accept a seal cup without the use of a separate gland.
2.07
MECHANICAL SEAL
Shaft sealing shall be accomplished by means of a mechanical
seal with a Ni-Resist seat, carbon washer, Buna-N elastomers and
stainless steel metal parts.
2.08
SHAFT
The impellers shall be direct-coupled to the power frame shaft.
The shaft shall be machined to provide an impeller keyway, and drilled
and tapped to accept the impeller fastener. The shaft shall be onepiece. Stub shafts are not acceptable. The outboard shaft extension
shall be machined with a keyway to accept a coupling to the driving
unit. Water slingers shall be furnished on both the inboard and
outboard shaft extension.
2.09
SHAFT SLEEVE
The pump shaft shall be fitted with a shaft sleeve to minimize
shaft wear. The sleeve shall be sealed to the impeller hub by an Oring, and shall be positively driven by a pin to the keyway. The use
of adhesive compounds to fasten the sleeve to the shaft shall not be
accepted.
2.10
POWER FRAME
The power frame shall house a single-row inboard radial bearing
and double-row outboard thrust bearing. All bearings shall be
regreaseable ball type furnished with conveniently located grease
fittings. Both bearings shall be selected for a 2 year minimum life at
maximum load. The outboard bearing shall be locked in place by a
retaining ring. The inboard bearing shall not be locked in order to
accommodate thermal expansion of the shaft. A bearing cartridge end
cap shall be provided on the outboard side of a power frame to allow
inspection and replacement of the thrust bearing without the need for
disassembling the power frame housing.
2.11
FOOT SUPPORTS
The pump unit shall be supported from beneath the mounting
bracket and the power frame by separately cast mounting feet.
2.12
COUPLING
A flexible coupling shall be provided to connect the pump shaft
to the motor shaft. The coupling shall be of an all metal type with a
flexible rubber insert. The entire rotating coupling element shall be
enclosed by a coupling guard.
2.13
BASEPLATE
The pump and the motor shall be mounted on a groutable formed
steel baseplate or a steel driprim baseplate with integral drip
channels incorporated on each side. Each channel shall include a NPT
drain connection and plug. The base shall be sufficiently rigid to
support the pump and the motor without the use of additional supports
or members.
2.14
MOTOR
The motor shall be horizontal and in accordance with the latest
NEMA standards, and shall have the following characteristics:
Enclosure......................Open Drip Proof/TEFC/XProof
Number of Phases...............Three
Cycles.........................60 Hz
Voltage........................230/460 Volt
Speed..........................3600 RPM
Horsepower.....................?
hp
Each motor shall have a sufficient horsepower rating to operate
the pump at any point on the pump's head-capacity curve without
overloading the nameplate horsepower rating of the motor regardless of
service factor. The motor shall have a service factor of 1.15. The
service factor is reserve for variations in voltage and frequency.
PART III - PERFORMANCE
