View Full Version : Orientation restrictions for PanWorld & Iwaki pumps?

10/03/2017, 09:07 AM
Hi guys, questions on orientation for panworld and Iwaki pumps. I would like to mount a pump so that the inlet is pointing up, and the output is horizontal. Curious if anyone knows if the companies say you can/can't mount them that way. I assume there may be a bushing/bearing issue but I am not finding a manufacturer suggestion...

Any information would be much appreciated.

Yea as I posted this I was working to reach out to some resellers, they all agreed there is no issue with my desired orientation with either pump series. I did not ask about the US Version of the Iwaki however. Just thought perhaps someone here had done the same leg work and had the answer in their back pocket.

The Japanese Iwakis are skewered so they cannot point straight up.
