LC, LF, LCS End Suction Pump

Black Paco end suction pump at an angle.

  • LC (Close Coupled)
  • LCS (Split Coupled)
  • LF (Frame Mounted)
  • LCV (Vertically Mounted Close Coupled)

Grundfos’ PACO line of end suction, single stage pumps sets the industry standard in performance, quality, and durability. With 32 sizes available, the PACO line of pumps is the best choice, with the following qualities:

  • Low life-cycle costs
  • High efficiency for reduced operating costs
  • Range of sizes for a variety of application requirements
  • Compensated double-volute design for reduced radial loads, minimized shaft deflection and prolonged seal and bearing life
  • Mechanical design for reduced maintenance and minimal downtime
  • Back pull out design for servicing and maintenance ease
  • Quiet operation

It is standard, the PACO end suction pumps include advanced features to ensure optimum perfor­mance and reliability. These features, as well as optional features that meet specialized needs, are available on the broadest line of high-efficiency pumps offered.

An innovative pump and impeller design produces a higher operating efficiency, up to 91 percent, while providing a wider band of best operating efficiency, even during conditions of off-design operation.

The PACO line of pumps are often used for these applications:

  • HVAC
  • Plumbing
  • Pressure Boosting
  • Industrial
  • Agriculture
  • Water Utility
  • Wastewater
