Pump Questions - Section 43 20 00
Contact: Tyler Tedcastle
I have a few questions on the General Pump Specification 43 20 00. 1) Item 1.2.B.4 : Item requires calcs for the anchor bolt and baseplate calcs to be signed by a FL PE. Would a Maryland PE Stamp be allowed? The factory is located in MD. 2) Item 2.1.B.3: Item requires the rated HP to be 110% greater than the max power. For the VTP, the max power is 284HP and the spec requires a 300HP. This requirement would require upsizing the motors to 350HP. Would the engineer consider waving this requirement? 3) Item 2.1.B.3 - Please clarify if both vertical and horizontal pumps need NSF 61 Certification. 4) Please advise the motor enclosure and voltage requirements for the HSC pumps, if there is a motor AVL, and clarify which specifications should apply to the both the VTP and HSC specs.
Pump Questions - Section 43 20 00
Contact: Tyler Tedcastle
I have a few additional questions for the pumps: 1) 43 20 00 2.5.A.4.a says it is acceptable to test with one job VFD and job motor. This section also references Item 2.5.3, which requires testing with the completely assembled project pump, motor and VFD. Does the testing need to be conducted with one job motor/VFD of each type, or with the job assembled drives? 2) 43 24 13,2.3.A: Item requires the vibration transmitters to be provided by the motor supplier and refers to section 40 91 14- Vibration Monitoring Systems. Section 40 91 14 says the transmitters will be provided by the contractor. Please clarify who supposed to supply this.
