This horizontal design is the most popular dry well configuration, where there is sufficient space available.
It is mounted onto a robust mild steel bedplate and can be either direct-drive or belt-driven. It can be supplied with or without the electric motor. This mounting arrangement allows for very straightforward access for maximum ease of maintenance of the pump and motor.
An adjustable back pull-out casing allows external setting of cutter clearances for the main chopping elements. This enables periodic maintenance to be carried out, without needing to strip down the pump.
A heavy-duty cartridge mechanical seal, with an equally heavy duty combined bearing frame, assures dependability.
This format is also commonly used for tank mixing applications, as detailed elsewhere.
