Bearing & Shaft Assembly

  • VS and VSR pumps are cantilever shaft designs. Bearings are grease-lubricated with double-row taper thrust bearing located at the lower end of the bearing housing, and roller-line bearing at the upper end of the bearing housing. Bearing and clearing adjustments are not required when assembling the bearing housing assembly. VS and VSR pumps of the same sizes are dimensionally interchangeable.
  • Bearing loads are minimised using double-sided impellers.


  • Moulded elastomer for VSR and metal for VS and VS50.
  • Tailpipe confi­gurations optional on VS pumps.


  • Agitator optional on VS pumps to prevent settling and sump silting.
