The XHT end suction, long coupled, single stage hot water centrifugal pump is standardised to EN 22858 / ISO 2858 and can be used for a wide range of applications in the industrial and marine markets. It is designed to pump high temperature hot water and geothermal water up to 230°C. Common applications include petroleum, chemical, energy plants, geothermal water and boiler feed.


This is a large, heavy duty hot water centrifugal pump and can achieve flow rates up to 1500m³/hr and can achieve high pressures up to 16 bar.


The long coupled hot water centrifugal pump design has many benefits:


The long coupled design is very easy to maintain as it is possible to access the pump head without removing the motor.

The pump is also very robust and designed for continuous use as additional bearings are installed in the centrifugal pump head, these take a large deal of strain away from the motor during operation.

The pump head is mounted centrally to reduce the chance of the coupling misaligning due to thermal expansion.


There are various sealing options available including; soft packing, single, double or cartridge type mechanical seal, the pump can also be fitted with an external seal cooling system.


This high temperature hot water centrifugal pump complies with EN 22858 and ISO 2858 this means that the pump is dimensionally the same as many other hot water pumps on the market, this enables the replacement of most horizontal centrifugal pumps that are already installed.

It comes complete with a heavy duty shaft that does not come into contact with the fluid.

No, definitely not! Centrifugal pumps will incur damage even after short periods of dry running. The mechanical seal requires lubrication and cooling while the pump is operating. Without the presence of fluid, the mechanical seal will overheat and crack, and this may cause the pump to leak and fluid to enter the motor. There is also the possibility that the motor will burn out. Our advice is to ensure that the pump has a flooded suction or always make sure that the pump casing and inlet pipe are filled with water; one way of ensuring this is to fit a check valve on the inlet line to stop water escaping when the pump is inactive. Another way of protecting the pump is to fit a dry running device, this will turn the pump off if it detects that no fluid is entering the pump. If you think that dry running is inevitable, then please speak to a member of our sales team and we will select a more suitable pump for your application.
Firstly, always check the compatibility of the materials available against the fluid being pumped. The main materials to check are the pump casing, impeller, o-ring and mechanical seal. It may be that more than one material is suitable for your fluid and selection could be based on the application type. For instance; cast iron, bronze and stainless steel are all suitable for fresh water. If it is a simple transfer application, then the most cost-effective material cast iron will be best. However, if it is a sanitary application, then stainless steel or bronze are better choices.
ATEX is an abbreviation of “Atmospheres Explosibles”. It is a regulation set out by the European Union to ensure the safety of products that are used to handle flammable products or are installed in environments containing flammable gases, vapours, mists or combustible dusts. For instance, if the pump is being installed in an explosive environment, then only the motor needs to meet the Atex standard stopping it from causing a spark during operation and igniting the atmosphere. However, if the fluid being pumped is flammable, then the pump will also need to meet Atex standards to ensure that no sparks are caused inside the pump itself when the fluid goes through it. It is crucial that an Atex rated pump or motor are used for applications involving explosive environments or flammable fluids, using a non-Atex pump or motor in these situations is extremely dangerous and contravenes health and safety standards.
NPSH is an acronym for Net Positive Suction Head. NPSH measures the absolute pressure present in a fluid.

There are two main ways that NPSH is expressed in a pump system

NPSHa - This is the amount of Net Positive Suction Head available at the pump inlet. NPSHa demonstrates the amount of pressure acting on a fluid as it enters the pump. This measures the amount of pressure between the liquid staying in its current state and forming vapour bubbles (beginning to boil).

NPSHr - This is the amount of Net Positive Suction Head that the pump requires to operate without experiencing the damaging effect of cavitation, thus causing a dramatic reduction in pump performance.

It is very important to pay attention to these values when making a pump selection. Selecting a pump that requires more NPSH than is available in your system will cause fast and long-lasting damage to the pump and thus you will incur large repair costs and downtime.
The best efficiency point or BEP is a point along the pump performance curve that indicates where efficiency for the pump peaks. When selecting a pump, you must try and get as close to the BEP as possible to ensure that the pump is at maximum efficiency when operating. The closer to the BEP the pump is when operating, the lower the energy costs will be, thus saving significant amounts of money during the pump’s lifetime. Also, vibrations will be at their lowest meaning maintenance costs are lower and the lifespan of the pump is maximised. It is very important to pay attention to the BEP when your pump is selected, as an oversized or undersized pump could cost you significant amounts of money.
A clear picture of the pump system is required to make an accurate selection. The main pieces of information required include; a description of the application, bore of pipework, the fluid, flow rate and pressure/head. With these pieces of information, a pump can be sized correctly to ensure it delivers the required flow rate and pressure and that is also operates at its best efficiency point to lower lifetime costs. Knowing if the pump is running intermittently or continuously also allows the correct motor speed to be selected. For instance, a pump running continuously 24/7 will require a 4 pole motor rather than a 2 pole motor. Running the motor slower and oversizing the pump will reduce wear of the motor and the pump, therefore lowering maintenance costs during their lifetime.
