SBV18 Vertical Turbine

Friday, February 21, 2014

Orders are being accepted for our small vertical turbine based on our horizontal SB18 (ball bearing) model. The vertical SBV18 uses the same bearing sizes as the SB18 with different angular contact for the orientation. We use grease lubrication with lip type seals on the shaft because we believe plant operators would rather change the seals every few years than tolerate constant oil leakage. There are various mounting options to meet your needs.

The power range of the SBV18 is from 5 to 300 horsepower, though most applications are likely to be in the 10 to 100 horse-power range.
