CTS Self Priming Centrifugal Pump Installation

Example Installation
CTS self priming installation
No 
Permissible 
Detail
1YESGate Valve, may also be fitted closer to the pump in case of long pipework
2N/AWith a positive suction head tilt the pipework towards the direction of the pump inlet
3YESIn-Line Strainer, required if there are particles present, larger than 6 mm
4NOAir Pockets, the circuit needs to be as short and as straight as possible
5YESPipe connectors
6N/ASuction line needs to be as short and direct as possible, ideally the same size as the pump inlet or 1 size larger.
7YESAttachment for Pressure Gauge or Pressure Relief Valve. It is best practice to install a Pressure Gauge on the discharge of the pump to evaluate where it is working on its curve. A Pressure Relief Valve is required when there is a possibility for “Dead Head” operation or when using a Nozzle for example.
8YESGate Valve, useful for regulating the performance of the pump.
9N/ABends in in the pipework need to be ideally placed after any valves and instrumentation and ideally placed five times the ø of the pipework away. I.e. if the pipework is 25 mm then any bends would ideally need to be placed 125 mm away from the pump and any valves or instrumentation.
10NOElbow Joints & other bends on the pump suction or discharge ports
11OPTIONALCheck Valve / Non Return Valve, optional when operating a suction lift application.
12YESSuction Strainer, essential when there is the potential for solids in suspension larger than the capability of the pump.
13YESExpansion Joint, indispensable with long pipework and / or hot liquids Anti-Vibration Facility, considered best practice when using the pump on a fixed & rigid pipework.
14YESOvercome obstacles on both the suction and discharge by lowering the pipework where possible. Essential on the suction side, ideal on the discharge side. This reduces the work the pump has to overcome as well as eliminating the possibility of air pockets.
15YESFix the pump into the installation by the fixing holes provided, the supports and / or base must be level.
