Dear Experts,

 

I have a query which I was not able to find answer in our forum. The question is what is criteria for selection between Horizontal or Vertical sump pumps. I saw both design in many projects but is not so clear what is reason(s) behind of pump selection.

 

Appreciated if someone could shed some light in my query. Thanks.

Hi Breizh,

 

Thank you for your prompt reply and sharing this very useful book. 

 

Indeed the problem I am facing is different, I need to design multiple drain drums which will be used for draining different chemical products piping and each drum equipped with one sump pump which transfer liquid in drum to different storage tanks. The main problem I have is I don't know how can select between horizontal or vertical sump pump for different liquids.

 

The drain drums and respective pumps will be installed in different berths structure on top of the sea.

How big is the flow? If the flow is large and space is not an issue, then horizontal is more suitable. Otherwise, small flows and compact area, vertical pumps would be preferred.

Pumps flowrate is about 10 m3/hr. There is no space issue as well.How pump capacity effect on pump type selection?

Dear Afshin,

Is your query about the pumps of sump pits e.g. oily water lift stations?

Dear Afshin,

 

 

As far as i know the main comparison in pump type selection for sumps is between submersible and vertical types, as if the flow is relatively low the vertical type would be preferable, because for higher flow they are so much noisy.

Dear Vegeta,

 

As I mentioned in post #3, pumps will be installed in  for different petrochemical products drain drum and drums will be installed in structure in top of the sea.

Dear Fallah,

 

Thank you for your feedback.

 

Already we chose vertical pumps but client insist to change all pumps to horizontal type due to easier maintenance.
