Question: Can a CRE pump be installed in a horizontal position?
Answer: Yes. The pump can be installed vertically or horizontally. Ensure that an adequate supply of cool air reaches the motor cooling fan. The motor must never fall below the horizontal plane.
The arrows on the pump base show the direction of flow of liquid through the pump. To minimize possible noise from the pump, it is advisable to fit expansion joints on either side of the pump and anti-vibration mountings between the foundation and the pump.
Note: Care should be taken to ensure that the vent plug is located in the uppermost position.
Isolating valves should be fitted either side of the pump to avoid draining the system if the pump needs to be cleaned, repaired or replaced.
