VERTICAL TURBINE WATER PUMPING UNITS
PART 1 -- GENERAL
1.1

DESCRIPTION

A.

Design, furnish, factory test, and deliver vertical turbine recycled water pumps with inverter duty
motors complete, including appurtenances, as indicated and specified. New motors and pumps will
replace existing motors and pumps at two irrigation pump station facilities owned and operated by
the City of Santa Rosa. The three vertical turbine pumps shall be custom fabricated to match the
existing bases or sole plates, and the pump discharge heads centerlines shall match the centerlines
of the existing discharge piping at each location.

1.2

RELATED WORK

A.

Others will design, furnish and install electrical enclosures, equipment, controls, variable speed
motor drives, conduit and conductors under a separate contract.

B.

Others will furnish and install the fittings, gate valves, air release valves, thrust restraint, pipe and
appurtenances for mechanical connections to the existing pump discharge piping under a separate
contract.

1.3

SYSTEM

A.

A total of three (3) new inverter duty motors and pumping units will be installed at two existing
pump station complexes in the City of Santa Rosas reclaimed wastewater irrigation pumping
system to improve energy efficiency. The Meadowlane pumping complex, adjacent to the Llano
Road treatment facility, pumps recycled wastewater for irrigation use into its distribution system.
The Rohnert Park pump station is an irrigation booster station that serves landscape and
agricultural users in the vicinity of Rohnert Park.
1.
The Meadowlane pumping complex was constructed in the mid 1970s. All pump motors at
the Meadowlane facility are currently fixed speed. An existing 150 HP fixed speed vertical
turbine pumping unit will be replaced with a 200 HP inverter duty motor and vertical turbine
pump at E Station (Pump EB2), and an existing 150 HP fixed speed pumping unit will be
replaced with a 30HP inverter duty motor and vertical turbine pump at Pond B (Pump B1P).
2.
The Rohnert Park pump station was constructed in 1994 and uses a combination of variable
speed and fixed speed pumping units. However, the pumps in use are over sized for most of
the flow demand. One of two existing 300 HP variable speed vertical turbine pumping units
(Pump #2) will be replaced with a 75HP inverter duty motor and vertical turbine pump
(Pump RP2).

turbine pumps will be guaranteed in the manufacturers bid form at three specific flows
(Efficiency Guarantee Points) for each pump.
The Efficiency Guarantee Points will be verified in factory tests. The guarantee points are
defined at, and tests will be performed at, full speed (60 Hz).
Each guarantee point has an associated target efficiency (wire-to-water). These target
efficiencies are used to calculate an adjustment to the bid price, solely for the purpose of
accounting for future pumping energy costs in the bid selection process. The target
efficiencies represent typical efficiencies for standard design vertical turbine pumping units.
Where the average of the three guaranteed efficiencies are better than the average target
efficiencies, the bid price will be decreased for the purpose of bid selection; if they exceed
the target efficiencies, the bid price will be increased.
The efficiency guarantee points, and target efficiencies, for each pump are as follows:

A.

The Rated Condition Range and Efficiency Guarantee Points conformance shall be demonstrated in
factory tests in accordance with ANSI/HI 2.6.
1.
The tests shall be performed with assembled motor and pumps.
2.
To accommodate existing factory test pits, pump column length may be modified. However,

test pump column. Manufacturer will submit for approval the calculation procedure for
these corrections, if needed, as part of the pump testing protocol.
3.
Open suction is permissible.
4.
Rated Condition Range conformance is based on total pump head, including entrance loss,
pump column fluid friction, and discharge elbow fluid friction.
5.
Efficiency calculation for conformance of Efficiency Guarantee Points as bid is based on
overall pump and driver (wire-to-water) efficiency.
6.
To verify conformance with the Minimum Flow of the Rated Condition Range, the pump
will be tested at full speed (corresponding to 60 Hz driver frequency) at the corresponding
efficiency point of the pump will operate at reduced speed to achieve Minimum Flow when
installed. The full speed corresponding efficiency point is that point where efficiency at
reduced speed and full speed are equal, and lie on the same side of the BEP of the H-Q
curve. The measured flow and head at full speed will be corrected by the Affinity Laws to
verify the pump has met the required Minimum Flow of the Rated Condition Range. In the
submittal of the factory testing protocol, the Manufacturer will calculate the full speed
corresponding efficiency point flow and head for the Minimum Flow of the Rated Condition
Range.

B.

NPSHR testing is required only if the stated NPSHR is within 3 feet or less of the NPSHA
requirement.

C.

Mechanical tests are required.

D.

Noise Measurements:
1.
Noise will be measured by a calibrated instrument placed 25 feet from the pump, 5 feet
above the level of the base plate.
2.
Noise will be measured and recorded at each test flow and head for each pump.

E.

Assembled pumps shall receive a factory hydrostatic test in accordance with ANSI/HI 2.6

F.

Testing will be witnessed. Owner will bear the cost of witnessing the tests.

PART 3 EXECUTION
1.9

SHIPPING

A.

Ship pumping units assembled except where partial disassembly is required by transportation
regulations or for protection of components.

B.

Prior to shipment, the Manufacturer will, on each of the vertical turbine pumping units, install three
recording accelerometers: 1) on the middle of the electric motor, 2) on the casing midway between
the motor and the pump bowls, and 3) on the middle of the pump bowls. The Manufacturer will
secure the accelerometers with a tamper indicating wire and seal or equivalent, digitally photograph
the installed accelerometers prior to shipping, and email the photographs to the Engineer.

1.10 RECEIVING
A.

The Manufacturer will assume responsibility for equipment, material, and spare parts just before
unloading from carrier at site. The Owner will unload the pumps in a designated staging area at
each of the two pump station job sites. The Manufacturer will contact the Owner ten business days
before delivery with a firm delivery date.

B.

Inspect and inventory items upon delivery at job site. Verify the accelerometers have not been
tampered with or compromised during shipment. Report the accelerometer readings to the Owner.
Any recorded acceleration in excess of 3 times gravitational force (3 gs) will be evidence that
shipping damage may have occurred. Any pumping unit that has received more than 3 gs
acceleration at any point will be disassembled and completely evaluated for mechanical soundness
at the Manufacturers expense. The Owner will establish the exact evaluation process. Mechanical
evaluation will include, but not be limited to:
1.
Verify that all impeller and bowl clearances are within factory tolerances, and impellers run
true within the bowls upon manual rotation.
2.
Verify that the motor shaft is straight, and motor rotor turns freely and true upon manual
rotation.
3.
Verify that the pump lineshaft is straight and within factory tolerances, and the lineshaft
turns freely and true upon manual rotation.
4.
Verify that the motor to lineshaft coupling has not been damaged.
5.
Verify that all bearings, wear plates, and seals are in the original condition, and show no
visible damage.
6.
Disassemble the pump column and verify the column sections are straight, and the
connecting flanges and seals are undamaged and remain within factory tolerances.
A complete report of findings will be provided to the Owner. In the event of a dispute between the
Owner and the Manufacturer concerning evidence of damage and/or the extent of repairs, a
qualified and disinterested third party will review the findings and make the determination of the
extent of repairs needed to restore the motor and pump to its original condition. The cost of any
corrections needed to restore the equipment to the original specifications will be borne by the
Manufacturer. The Owner will withhold final payment until the Owner is satisfied the pump is
restored to its original condition.

1.11 MANUFACTURERS FIELD QUALITY CONTROL


A.

An experienced, competent, and authorized representative of the manufacturer shall visit the site of
the work and inspect, check, adjust if necessary, and approve the equipment installation. The
representative shall be present when the equipment is placed in operation, and shall revisit the job
site as often as necessary until all trouble is corrected and the equipment installation and operation
are satisfactory in the opinion of ENGINEER.

B.

The equipment manufacturer shall furnish a qualified field installation supervisor during the
equipment installation. Such services shall be included in the contract price for the number of days
and round trips to the site as required. At a minimum, one eight hour day will be provided at each
of the two pump stations.

C.

The manufacturers field installation supervisor shall furnish a written report certifying that the
equipment has been properly installed and lubricated; is in accurate alignment; is free from any
undue stress imposed by connecting piping or anchor bolts; and has been operated under full load
conditions and that it operated satisfactorily.

D.

Manufacturers installation supervisor shall observe, instruct, guide, and direct the installing
contractors erection or installation procedures. The equipment manufacturer will be provided with
written notification 10 business days prior to the need for such services.

E.

The Manufacturer shall provide a qualified trainer for both operations and maintenance procedures
instruction once installation is complete. A minimum of one eight hour day will be provided.

1.12 FIELD ACCEPTANCE TESTING


A.

Once the Manufacturer has completed the field quality control of the installed motor and pumps,
complete mechanical testing, as described in ANSI/HI 2.6-2000, will be performed.
1.
The motor and pumps will be operated over the complete speed range required to meet the
Rated Condition Range, insofar as it is practical for the operations staff to do so at the time
of testing.
2.
Vibration shall not exceed 2.5 mils peak-to-peak at any speed while the pump is operating
within the Preferred Operating Range, when measured at the top of the pump motor.
Vibration shall not exceed 3 mils peak-to-peak at any speed or condition required to meet the
Rated Condition Range. Hand held instruments may be used for these vibration
measurements.

B.

Once the mechanical testing is successfully completed, the Manufacturer shall provide a written
certification of proper installation. The final part of the field acceptance testing will be a 7-day
operational test by the Owners staff. The Manufacturer will provide technical support as requested
via telephone, and if telephone support does not resolve any issues satisfactorily and timely, by a
site visit at the Manufacturers expense.
1.
For successful completion of the 7-day operational test, the Owner will be able to operate the
system continuously during the test. The Owner may, at his discretion, simulate the entire
Rated Condition Range and Exceptional Condition Range to observe the pumps response.

If failure occurs, and in the opinion of the Owner, the failure is minor and easily corrected,
the Owner will continue the testing. If, in the opinion of the Owner, the failure causes
operational difficulties, the Owner will stop the 7-day test and if necessary shut down for
repair. The Owners decision to stop the 7-day test shall be final.
Mechanical failures, revealed during the 7-day operational test, will be corrected by the
Manufacturer at their expense.
At the discretion of the Owner, a third party will be engaged under separate contract to
attach recording vibration meters to the pumps at the top of the motors for the duration of the
7-day operational test. Vibration shall not exceed 2.5 mils peak-to-peak at any speed while
the pump is operating within the Preferred Operating Range. Vibration shall not exceed 3
mils peak-to-peak at any speed or condition required to meet the Rated Condition Range or
Exceptional Condition Range. Failure to meet vibration limits will require repair by the
Manufacturer (including cost of pump removal and replacement if needed).
Once any mechanical or vibration failures are corrected, the 7-day operational test will be restarted.
Successful completion of the 7-day operational test marks the commencement of the motor
and pump warranty period.
