Double Suction Pump

The bearings are positioned on either side of the impeller.

The closed impeller has an inlet on either side, lowering the friction resistance of the incoming fluid.

These pumps operate with about a 25% reduction in NPSHR compared to a similar size end suction centrifugal pump

These pumps are used for high capacity applications, or any time you need a low net positive suction head required (NPSHR).

The double suction also reduces axial thrusting of the impeller
