Inertia Bases & Plinth Surrounds
Masterflow Inertia bases are pre-fabricated in set sizes to suit the three Bakerflow pump configurations – Long Coupled, Close Coupled and Vertical Inline. Two main criteria are met in the design. Firstly they provide the required “inertia” for the weight of the rotating portion of the pumpset.
Secondly they are not oversized dimensionally so that plant room floor space is optimised. Each Inertia base incorporates outriggers for mounting on springs and reinforcement mesh for required strength. These are supplied lose with each pump delivery and filling with concrete is done on site by others. Refer to separate Instruction sheet for Installation Guidelines. Custom made Inertia frames can be designed and fabricated to suit specific conditions.
