For years Caprari has been installing inclined submersible pumps on riverbeds, lakes and artificial basins, where this application is highly recommended and effective.
In these applications, the pumped water is primarily used for irrigation purposes, however, it is also used for flood control or water supply in general.
Over the years, this type of installation has also been used for other applications where system and environmental requirements were similar to those above, including mines, industrial plants, etc.
Inclined submersible pumps offer numerous advantages compared to vertical pumps or horizontal pumps mounted on floating platforms, particularly because they are easily installed.
The pump inclined on the bank of the basin requires no large structural parts to be installed, with consequent cost and time saving.
Another important advantage of inclined submersible pumps is that they are highly compact machines and can be positioned on banks with very irregular slopes with no need for the shaft to be aligned, contrary to a vertical turbine pump.
Finally, the most appreciated characteristics of inclined submersible pumps are that they are easily handled, bearings are less stressed and the level of noise generated by these pumps is low.
The choice of a wide range of wet ends and submersible motors, combined with Caprari know-how, ensures total reliability and efficiency in the selection and installation of the product, with the guarantee of a long operating life, as demonstrated by the dozens of Caprari pumps installed around the world.
Installations of inclined submersible pumps are found in Queensland, Australia, where the banks of the water basin are very steep. The solution offered by Caprari enabled an efficient water pumping system to be quickly installed to permit irrigation of the surrounding areas.
In the municipality of Zamora, Spain, the solution called for a special wheeled system, designed to set the pump to avoid vibrations and then insert it inside the pipe. Initially, the pumps remain in a horizontal position thanks to the application of several floats, but when the water level lowers, the pipe as well as the built-in pump get inclined.
