Model CUP-CVP is designed to provide higher flow rates than vertical-bowl pump designs, thus reducing the number of pumps required. According to the company, the design operates at higher efficiencies and experiences minimal wear during operation due to its low running speed. Real-life uses of the pump have shown more than 100,000 hours of operation in power generation applications without loss of efficiency. It can provide a minimum service life of 10 to 12 years between internal maintenance inspections, according to the manufacturer. The design of the volute ensures the concrete is in compression, which improves sealing. This design also enables a single concrete pour to produce the casing.
