The Clyde Union Pumps CUP-OH3 model VLK-BB is a single stage, vertical, in-line bearing bracketed centrifugal pump, that is flexible and versatile enough to meet the requirements of a wide variety of pumping applications today. Commonly serving in oil refineries, petrochemical plants, and offshore environments, the Clyde Union CUP-OH3 VLK-BB pump has proven itself to be a very reliable piece of equipment. 


In 2015, the Clyde Union factory decided to incorporate Isomag bearing isolators on their CUP-OH3 VLK-BB pump to add to it's already robust reputation. This batch of pumps went to an oil refinery using oil mist as the lubrication system. Isomag bearing isolators eliminate stray oil mist their liquid tight sealing faces.
