Custom Engineered Canned Turbine Pump Stations
In some pumping applications, vertical turbine pumps are installed into individual cans or suction barrels. PPS canned turbines are commonly used when pumping hydrocarbons. By doing so, our pump engineers and system designers can use gravity to increase the amount of suction pressure available to the pumps which allows them to operate more effectively for the customer. PPS canned turbine pumps are also common in municipal water applications since the use of cans provides our engineers with greater flexibility when designing these pump stations.
Our canned turbine pump stations are designed, engineered and built according to the precise specifications of our customers. They include UL listed control panels and stations and they arrive pre-tested, certified and ready to install – decreasing your project lead times and increasing your system uptime.

200 – 3,000+ GPM and more
20 – 150+ psi and more
Single Phase, 3 phase
208, 230, 480 (Other voltages can be configured)
Butterfly Isolation Valves: Reduce station downtime by making it easy to quickly isolate pumps and other station components for service and maintenance.
Silent Check Valves: Prevent water from flowing backwards through the system, silently and with minimal pressure drop.
Air Relief Valves: Prevent entrained air from throttling system flow, continuously acting to release air from high points in the system.
High Pressure Relief Valves (Optional): Protect the system from pressure surges. Available to be electrically operated and controlled from the PLC.
Monitoring & Control
UL Listed Control Panel:
- Designed and built according to Industry Best Practices: Custom control panels designed and manufactured in a UL 508A listed facility.
- Open Source Control: Comprehensive electrical and control schematics are included with each control panel, making them serviceable by non-proprietary service technicians.
Energy Saving Variable Frequency Drives:
- VFDs increase the efficiency of submersible turbine pump stations by adjusting the pump operations to fit fluctuating demands.
- VFDs ensure that the system maintains constant pressure even as demand fluctuates.
Programmable Logic Controllers:
- Intelligent Controls and Monitoring: PLCs can provide comprehensive monitoring and control of the system, including monitoring total flow, intake and discharge pressure, and motor frequency and performance.
- Motor Alternation: With multiple pump configurations, the PLC will alternate the lead and lag pumps for better wearing of the motors, extending the life of the motor.
- System Protection: from electrical faults, pressure faults, flow faults, and temperature faults.
- Remote Monitoring: When equipped with remote SCADA tools, it is possible to monitor and control pump stations from anywhere an internet connection exists.
- Multiple I/Os: Can incorporate multiple inputs and outputs from a range of sources, including pressure transducers, flow meters, and electronically controlled valves.
Easy to Use Human Machine Interface:
- Touchscreen interface makes controlling and monitoring the system intuitive and straightforward.
System Diagnostic Utilities:
- Enable operators to view, diagnose, and troubleshoot system faults.
Sensors, Switches and Gauges:
- Stainless Steel Pressure Gauges: Provide operators with real-time readings of both intake and discharge pressure.
- Stainless Steel Pressure Transducers: Accurately detects system pressure and sends 4-20 mA analog signals to the PLC.
- High Pressure Switches: A backup device that shuts the system down in a high pressure event.
- Flow Meters: Both magnetic and paddle-wheel style flow meters measure discharge flow and sends signals to the PLC, which records the flow data and can adjust the pumps according to flow thresholds.

What Our Customers Say ...
“ I can always tell how good a company is by asking them to do something they would not normally do ... and PPS has always done everything we have asked and expected ... its been a great relationship!"
"Thank you for developing a compact, cost effective, and innovative package pump station to meet the needs of the Eugene Water and Electric Board. The project site presented many challenges such as constraining property lines, steep topography, and high visibility; making a compact package pump station the most ideal solution. I have enjoyed working with the PPS staff and look forward to our next project."
Eugene Water & Electric Board
"The City of Twin Falls needed a way to plan for the future, and PPS really delivered by innovating the regional and expandable pump station design."
PPS Sales & Support
"The actuated valve control that allows us to direct the water to where we need it to go – from our cell phones – has saved us an incredible amount of time and travel. That was a very pleasant surprise that PPS added to their PLC Program”

How Canned Turbine Pumps Work
A canned turbine pump is a horizontal turbine pump with a completely sealed and protected electric motor mounted on single shaft eliminating the need for a mechanical seal or other sealing device. The entire rotating mechanism is submerged in the water source where the motor and rotors are isolated from the pumped liquid with a corrosion resistant, non-magnetic liner and sleeve. In some cases, part of the pumped liquid can be by-passed through the motor for cooling and also lubricating the bearings.
Canned turbine pumps come in multiple configurations, which means that they can be adapted to suit nearly any performance requirement, producing flow rates from 200 – 3000+ GPM and pressure ranges from 20 – 150 PSI.
