Overview

 

The Saturne™ pump, licensed by GE Steam Power, is a vertical turbine pump (or suspended bowl pump) for use in a wet pit with a vertical water column. It's driven by a direct motor, or through a gearbox, installed on the pump head or a separate floor. It's designed for large flows up to 20 m3/s, which is beneficial for massive irrigation purposes or water intake in large desalination plants. There are over 500 Saturne™ pumps currently operating around the world, and they are well known for high reliability and low vibration—less than 1.8 mm/s.

The pump consists of a high-efficiency hydraulic module with axial, mixed flow, or centrifugal impellers; shaft line immersed in the pumping fluids or with an independent flushing system; and fabricated casing, which includes the discharge column and elbow.

 

The portfolio includes various types
  • Welded or casting components
  • Carbon steel, stainless steel, duplex or super-duplex
  • Pull-out or non-pull-out 
  • Several technologies for guide bearings: rubber, graphite, ceramic

 

Materials for seawater applications
  • Impeller: duplex or super duplex stainless steel
  • Pump casing: duplex or super duplex stainless steel
  • Column and delivery head: duplex stainless steel
  • Shaft: duplex stainless steel

 

Materials for raw and fresh water
  • Impeller: stainless steel
  • Pump casing: cast iron or carbon steel
  • Column and delivery head: carbon steel
  • Shaft: stainless steel or martinsitic steel
