The G2C Series is Carver’s newest version of vertical pumps for handling fluids at moderate to high flow rates. This design is a cantilever style unit that features non-wetted radial and thrust bearings located above the support plate, with a throttle bushing located immediately above the impeller.
The G2C is based on the same product platform as our vertical sump and horizontal end suction pumps. Hydraulic performance extends to 2,500 GPM at 1,750 RPM and is covered by 23 sizes in cast iron, 316 SS fitted, and all 316 SS construction as standard. Other materials, including Alloy 20 and Hastelloy B & C, are available for more corrosive applications as well. For simplicity, there are only two sizes of bearing frame/motor mounting brackets between the 23 sizes of units. The bearing frame/motor mounting brackets are a one-piece design to insure rigidity and alignment integrity.
As a standard, these units are typically offered in two column depths. The standard column setting has a 12 inch distance between the bottom of the mounting plate and back of the pump casing.
The extended column setting, on the other hand, is twice this length, giving a 24 inch distance between the bottom of the mounting plate and back of the pump casing.
The basic G2C design consists of a pumping (wet) end, bearing frame/motor mounting bracket and top plate. All models feature external impeller adjustment, bearings above the liquid surface, no mechanical seals to maintain, full compatibility with standard NEMA ‘C’ face motors, and some of the most efficient hydraulics in the industry.
Available as an option, discharge piping with Class 150 lb. flange dimensions can be included (either standard or oversized) on an enlarged support plate should it be a requirement of the installation. Additionally, 316 SS underliners for support plates, suction strainers, inlet tail pipes, external flush lines, and accessories such as automatic greasers and control panels with float switch actuators for automatic start/stop sequencing are also available.
Most importantly, as with all our other pumps, the G2C offers the reliability, low total life cost, and lasting value that has made Carver one of the most trusted names in pumps.

Why A G2C?
Along with all of its technical advantages, the G2C also offers the indirect benefits of:
• robust designs with the same reliability and quality that we have been providing the United States military for the past 75 years
• extensive standard and optional features that assure total flexibility in meeting system installation and hydraulic performance requirements
• backing by over 70 stocking distributors, sales agents, and certified service centers – the largest aftermarket support group for pumps of this type in the world.
There are many things to consider when selecting a vertical pump. However, in the end it all comes down to value, and the G2C delivers more of it than any other pump. To see for yourself, contact us or any of our stocking distributors.
