Vertical Gas Turbine Pump: Gas turbine provides quick start for flood controlVericor’s vertical ASE40B Gas Turbine packs 3.0MW of pumping power into a small footprintMore About Vericor's ASE40B
Provide quick-start, reliable power to flood control pump with limited floor space
Install Vericor’s ASE40B Gas Turbine on top of a vertical pump
High power pumping with variable power turbine speeds capable of emptying a backyard pool in less than 4 seconds
Vericor’s packager in Japan designed an effective solution and installed several vertical pump packages using the Vericor ASE40B Gas Turbine.
The ASE40B engine is capable of starting from stop to full load in less than one minute and can switch fuels from gas to liquid on the fly, giving remarkable flexibility to the operators to mitigate unknown power and fuel outages in this critical application.

The Vericor Difference
Vericor’s ASE gas turbines are a proven aero-derivative design that are specifically configured for power generation and mechanical drive applications. Advantages of using these gas turbine systems for these applications are many:
• Compact size allows for easy on site installation and change out
• High operational readiness
• Fast cold start characteristics
• Low emissions and vibration
• Flexibility to efficiently burn a variety of fuels
• High reliability and low maintenance requirements
The modular nature of these engines allows for easy inspections on site. This ease of care approach simplifies stocking of spares and lowers downtime and maintenance periods. Recommended maintenance cycles for each ASE gas turbine are 30,000 hours for a hot section overhaul and 60,000 hours for a major overhaul.
