Factory testing per specified requirements verify performance where conditions are critical.
Cascade’s high capacity test facility is specifically designed for performance testing of vertical wet pit axial and mixed flow pumps. Included is the ability to test prototype and model pumps with simulated field sump conditions and submergences.
Standard test set-ups include the actual job bowl assembly with a laboratory motor and elbow.
Fully or partially assembled pumps can also be tested with either job drivers or laboratory motors.
Where full size testing is not practical or economical, testing of a homologous model bowl assembly can predict full size performance using the affinity relationships.
