PACO – KP/KPV Series Centrifugal Pump

The PACO KP/KPC series centrifugal pump is a Horizontal Split Case double suction centrifugal pump from Grundfos. KP/KPV pumps can be configured to meet the specific needs of virtually any commercial building requirement. Casings are horizontally split at the shaft centerline to simplify inspections and maintenance. Double suction impellers are dynamically and hydraulically balanced and are available in bronze, cast iron, and other special alloys for specific applications. The cartridge type bearing housings allow a short bearing span for minimum shaft deflection. Oversized heavy-duty ball bearings provide long, trouble-free service in continuous operations for this pump.

You can find Grundfos centrifugal pumps, including those from PACOS, at any of our Midwest Brabazon locations. Contact us today to talk to an Account Manager and discover which pump is best for your specific needs.

Features & Benefits

Because the KP range of a PACO KP/KPC series centrifugal pump features double volute construction, self-contained bearing housing, and your choice of application specific materials for construction, their quality is favored by engineers. With so many customizable configurations, you can be sure to modify this pump to meet accommodate your requirements.

Standard Features & Benefits of the PACO KP/KPV Series Centrifugal Pump


  • A large diameter shaft and a short bearing span provide a minimum life span of 10 years.

Sleeve Bearing

  • Contaminates and particles are flushed by spiral grooves to reduce maintenance costs.

Sleeve Bearing Housing 

  • Pump life is extended due to the 360-degree machined register constructed to simplify removal.

Bearing Housing 

  • 360-degree machined register fit minimizes shaft deflection and makes for easy alignment.
  • Seal and bearing chambers are combined to simplify maintenance.
  • Seal, sleeve, and bearing inspection are accomplished without the need to remove the top half of the casing.

Case Wear Rings

  • Protect pump casing from damage and allow for easy maintenance of proper running clearances.
  • Reduce maintenance costs and help to maintain efficient operation.


  • Suction and discharge flanges are integrated into the lower casing half to allow for the removal of the rotating assembly without disturbing the piping.
  • Vibration is minimized by a sturdy base, extending the overall life of KPV.


  • “Closed (double-shrouded) with Francis Vane.
  • Noise and vibration are minimized with double volute design, extending the deal and bearing life.
