The VTP pumps are normally designed to operate in wells or sumps. The bowl assembly consists primarily of a suction case or bell, one or more pump bowls, and a discharge case. The number of stages (bowls) employed is determined by the head requirements of the installation. The pump bowl assembly is positioned in the sump or well at a depth to provide the proper submergence.
