Manual Three Pump Standby Tank Sets
Three pump standby is the most common method to add a standby pump to the tank set. A third pump, the same capacity as the process pump, is installed on the frame between the two existing pumps with a common discharge header.
Two isolation valves are located one on either side of the standby pump, if the process pump fails its discharge valve is closed, the isolation on the process header side is opened and you are in operation and the defective pump can be repaired. If the chiller or tower pump fails the same procedure is followed.
Structural Steel Bases
Pumps and tank are mounted on structural steel welded bases that are painted with the control panel or motor starters mounted to the tank.
