The article relates five reasons why a horizontal split-case centrifugal (HSC) pump is useful. When taking into consideration the room needed for repairs, an HSC pump takes up less space than other pumps. It can also be checked without removing its rotating element or bothering the electric motor or piping. In addition, it has a longer useful life that other pumps.
