3.118 RCP Series
RCP Series Flooded End Suction Pump
The RCP Series are single stage, centrifugal flooded suction pumps that are designed for general pumping service from dry, remote locations. Designed for use at elevations below fountain pool water level, their compact design conserves pump room floor space while permitting maximum operating efficiency in a horizontal position. Applications include medium to large architectural fountain systems requiring a remote flooded-suction type pumping system. Capacities range from 100 to 2000 GPM at 20 to 250 feet of head. The RCP Series pump is a horizontal close-coupled, flooded end suction cast iron casting with a standard bronze enclosed dynamically balanced impeller. It features a pull-out design, leakless mechanical shaft seal with a carbon-ceramic face, cast iron suction cover with bronze cover ring, bronze or stainless steel renewable shaft seal, bronze gland with bronze studs and fasteners, open drip proof (ODP) motor (T.E.F.C. available), continuous duty rated and close coupled to the volute casting, and standard class B insulation rated 40 deg. C, lithium base grease lubricated ball bearings. There are two position discharge outlets. The unit is 208/220/440 volt, 60 cycle, 3-phase 1750 or 3450 RPM, 1.15 service factor, with A.S.A. standard flanged connections.
