DJ Gongol & Associates represents the Patterson Pump Company, a subsidiary of the Gorman-Rupp Company, in the states of Iowa and Nebraska. Patterson pumps are made for a variety of applications in both clean water and wastewater applications.

For small-flow situations -- like many found in Iowa and Nebraska, Patterson offers a highly economical alternative to end suction and horizontal split-case pumps: vertical in-line pumps.

The Patterson Vertical In-Line Pump (VIP) is an excellent choice for in-line boosting applications at flows of 1,500 gallons per minute or less. The suction and discharge flanges on a Patterson vertical in-line pump are 180 apart on a common center line, so the pump can be installed directly into existing piping.

Because the Patterson vertical in-line pump is lightweight, it requires no foundation or concrete pad, saving lots of money on installation costs.

Patterson's vertical in-line pump is available with either packing or a mechanical seal. The mechanical seal can be inspected easily without requiring the operator to tear down the entire pump, and the packing is done with a two-piece gland for easy installation and removal.
