A vertical turbine pump is a specialized centrifugal pump designed to move water from a well or reservoir that is deep underground. Sometimes referred to as a deep well turbine pump or line-shaft turbine pump, it is one of the main two types of turbine pumps.
The two main types of turbine pumps are vertical turbine pumps and submersible turbine pumps. Submersible pumps have a motor located underwater at the bottom of the pump while vertical turbine pumps have a motor located above ground.
Vertical turbine pumps are primarily used when a submersible pump is not possible or because the application is greater suited for a conventional motor mounted at the top of the pump.
