Why You Should Consider an ANSI Centrifugal Pump to Improve Efficiency
An American National Standards Institute (ANSI) centrifugal pump is a type of single-stage, end-suction centrifugal pump.
What makes ANSI centrifugal pumps unique is that they’re constructed to meet strict standards and each size of this pump has identical envelope dimensions for all manufacturers.
Additionally, ANSI standards in manufacturing allow you to replace pumps without affecting the piping location, motor attachments, coupling or bed plate dimensions.
ANSI centrifugal pumps are constructed in a wide range of materials, which means there’s a pump available for many different applications.
Typically, these pumps are used in chemical industry applications, but they can also be used in food processing plants, paper mills, pulp mills, refineries, ethanol production plants, textile mills and many other industrial spaces for process plant applications.
C&B Equipment offers four types of ANSI centrifugal pumps:
- Summit 2196 ANSI
- Summit Clark
- Grundfos CR(N)-H
We will go into more detail about these pumps below.
Additionally, C&B Equipment provides base plates and coupling guards for all listed ANSI pumps.
What Makes ANSI Centrifugal Pumps Efficient?
Not all pumps are created equal, but ANSI Centrifugal pumps have some efficiency-boosting features that make them a top choice in multiple industries.
As we stated above, different manufacturers build these pumps according to strict ANSI standards and they have nearly identical build specifications.
As a consumer, these nearly identical specifications can help make your operation run more efficiently.
Unlike other types of pumps, you don’t need to worry about finding the exact same pump manufacturer to quickly get your operation back up and running when an existing pump fails.
Generally, you can employ an ANSI centrifugal pump from any manufacturer without having to worry about adjusting or modifying your existing piping footprint, as long as it meets your system’s requirements.
Also, if your business employs ANSI centrifugal pumps for different types of applications or in varying conditions, you can easily change out pumps as the environment requires.
What Types of ANSI Centrifugal Pumps Does C&B Equipment Specialize In?
Based on C&B Equipment’s experience in providing reliable, efficient pump solutions, we’ve partnered with Summit, and Grundfos to provide and maintain the best ANSI centrifugal pumps available on the market.
Summit 2196 ANSI Centrifugal Pump
Built primarily for water, chemical oil, pulp, paper and general-purpose applications, the Summit 2196 ANSI centrifugal pump features a real pull-out design, efficient interchangeable parts, a fully open impeller, extra-large oil sump and a rigid frame foot.
The Summit 2196 ANSI centrifugal pump can also handle heads up to 730 feet and temperatures up to 700 degrees Fahrenheit.
Depending on your application, the Summit 2196 ANSI pump has optional features available, like a finned-tube oil cooler and multiple stuffing box cover options, such as standard bore, large bore and taper bore.
Summit Clark 3
The Summit Clark 3 ANSI general-purpose pump can handle some of the heaviest capacities, up to 5,000 gallons per minute and can handle heads up to 740 feet.
Featuring back pull out design, threaded bearing housing, accurate impeller adjustments, a reverse vane closed impeller and reduced shaft deflection, the Clark 3 ANSI general-purpose pump conforms to ASME B73.1M standards.
The Grundfos CR(N)-H series pump is a reliable, high-efficiency, space-saving ANSI centrifugal pump suitable for slightly aggressive liquids used in chemical processing systems, washing and cleaning systems, acid and alkalis pumping, filtration systems, water pressure boosting, water treatment systems, HVAC and irrigation.
The Grundfos CR(N)-H ANSI centrifugal pump is suitable for capacities up to 210 gallons per minute, heads up to 630 feet, temperatures from -22 to 248 degrees Fahrenheit and working pressures up to 435psi.
