Pumps deliver fresh hot and cold water to naval crews
Mono is taking to the waves with the installation of its Monobloc B range pumps on the new Type 45 Destroyers being built by BAE Systems for the Royal Navy. The Mono pumps, two per vessel, are being installed as part of the domestic fresh water systems provided by Rycroft. The skid mounted calorifier packages will provide the domestic hot and cold fresh water for the crew on board.
Mono was able to provide a perfect solution for Rycroft who required pumps with a 6m head to draw water from a sump to their calorifier packages. The Monobloc B range with its compact construction and maximum performance characteristics made it an ideal choice for this application and Rycroft, a frequent customer, was happy to return to Mono for help in supplying equipment for this contract.
The SB051 and SB031 pumps installed by Rycroft are just two of the 33 B range models available. The twelve pumps on the Type 45 Destroyers will be operating at duty speeds up to 800 rpm and capacities up to 15m3/hr. The pumps use a positive displacement action to give a suction lift capability of 8.5m, which means deep sumps can easily be pumped without the use of submersible equipment.
