In order to cater for all delivery rates and head requirements in cooling water pumps, a complete programme of impeller designs is needed, each with their own specific speed.
ANDRITZ provides high-quality and reliable energy utility and turbine pumps for various applications in the power industry. The company’s products ensure the most effective use of energy and are used innovatively in the energy sector as cooling water pumps and in flue gas desulphurisation plants.
ANDRITZ’s product range includes cooling water pumps for thermal power plants, as well as standard centrifugal pumps for district heating facilities. ANDRITZ turbine pumps complete the pump programme.
Vertical line shaft pumps for energy facilities
The company provides vertical line shaft pumps that can be supplied with pull-out or non-pull-out characteristics depending on customer requirements. The pumps are provided with radial, mixed flow or axial impellers, which can be fitted with blades that are either fixed or adjustable during operation.
The shaft pumps function as cooling water pumps in power plants or in water supply, and are customised for heads up to 80m and flow rates up to 70,000m³/hr.
Metal and concrete vertical volute pumps
ANDRITZ vertical volute pumps are designed with a metal or concrete volute, as well as an optional guide vane. These pumps can also be equipped with a radial or mixed flow impeller.
The volute pumps are used to cool water in power plants worldwide and are customised for heads up to 250m and flow rates up to 180,000m³/hr.
Double-suction split case pumps for cooling and circulation water systems
The company designs cost-effective double-suction split case pumps that have a particularly long service life and are efficient.
They have an axial split case design that makes maintenance quick and easy, while the pumps’ double-flow radial impeller and in-line casing enables horizontal or vertical installation. This allows the motor to be positioned on the right or left site.
ANDRITZ split case pumps are designed to transport cooling or circulation water in energy facilities and district heating networks.
Cost-effective turbine pumps for electrical power generation
ANDRITZ pump-turbines are a cost-effective alternative to usual generators. When running in reverse, ANDRITZ centrifugal pumps can be transformed into a mini turbine, which helps to produce a strong return on investment (ROI) by recovering and creating electrical power.
The pumps can be fitted as recovery turbines in several business applications or to supply energy to mountain refugees and forest lodges.
Pump engineering services for power projects
Besides its pumps programme for the power sector, ANDRITZ Pumps, which is part of the ANDRITZ Group’s hydro business area, develops high-quality standard and customised centrifugal pumps, as well as submersible motors and pumps for a wide range of different applications and industries.
The company has decades of experience and knowledge in constructing hydraulic technologies, guaranteeing reliable and high-grade ANDRITZ pump engineering. ANDRITZ offers a well-rounded service that includes development work, model tests, engineering design, pump manufacturing, project management, and after-sales service and training.

If a plant's operating settings have changed, but the pumps are still set according to the previous conditions, and clients want to save energy and costs by optimising their system, ANDRITZ is the ideal service partner.
ANDRITZ can check all system-related parameters in power plants such as delivery flow, pressure head, and energy consumption in order to optimise your system and adapt it to any changed operating conditions.
The ANDRITZ multi-stage axial split case pump has an impeller arrangement that can be combined in different ways to fulfil different application needs.
Our commitment to research and development forms the basis for our advances in hydraulic machine manufacturing. We are currently developing and testing our pumps and turbines at five locations in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, and China.
