The Hippo Vertical Spindle family of pumps is designed for the ultimate in slurry handling while the vertical Spindle Cantilever design eliminates submerged bearings. The Top suction Type VT design eliminate air binding, with allows the pump to run dry and quickly reprime when required. The Twin volute casing design balance the radial loads created by the Impeller and Casing in the most efficient way, assuring trouble free installation with a longer bearing life.
The Hippo type VB Pump’s Construction is Ideal for pumping quick settling abrasive or corrosive slurries with an external agitator preventing the settling of solids at the intake. The Hippo Pump is capable of pumping slurries which have settled out and need to be removed.
The Hippo type VT Pump’s Construction prevents air binding when pumping liquids with entrapped air (froth) and permits continuous operation with wide range of inflow rates
The Hippo type VV pump is fully capable of pumping abrasive slurries containing large solids with minimal particle disintegration.
The Hippo type VBD is an economical design to the type VB – Ideal for pumping quick settling abrasive or corrosive slurries with an external agitator
