A cantilever pump is a pump where the housing is immersed in the medium while the motor is mounted above the foundation at a safe distance from the liquid. When pumping with a long insertion length a so-called heavy-duty bearing seat is mounted between the motor and the foundation. As this pump version has no shaft seal or bearing in the liquid it can therefore do its work unhindered without any risk of damage.
Applications cantilever pump
A cantilever pump can be used for various jobs. For example, this pump is suitable for pumping both school and heavily polluted water. When a cantilever pump is fitted with a vortex impeller it can even pump wastewater with solids up to around 150 mm! Furthermore, the pump can be used in situations where very hot liquids (up to 500 °C) are handled.
