High Pressure Pumps Handle Challenging Pump Applications

June 30, 2010
The pump is designed to reliably transfer viscous, solid-laden slurries at high discharge pressures by utilizing a 3 to 1 pressure ratio of inlet air supply to discharge fluid. Available in stainless steel and ductile iron bolted construction, this high-pressure pump can achieve discharge fluid pressures up to 17.2 bar. The pump also helps avoid costly external boosters or amplifiers to achieve the pressure output for high-pressure applications. They also include a ringed air valve piston for added on/off reliability and life along with DIN or ANSI compatible flanges. The maximum flow rate for the pump is 360 lpm, with a maximum inlet air pressure of 5.9 bar. The pump is manufactured with premiere simplex and duplex diaphragm and piston pump technologies to maximize pump performance in chemical, food processing, paint and resin, pressure spraying, and well injection applications.
