Sealless Pumps for High Pressure Applications Where Containment is Crucial

March 8, 2010
The company has expanded its line of high-pressure positive displacement pumps to 190 GPM, with sealless single or double cartridge seals, component mechanical seals or lip seals. The series offers 29 displacements, with pressures to 500-PSI standard, some offering pressures up to 2,500 PSI. All operate at up to four-pole motor speeds, and offer either foot-bracket or close-coupled motor mount to both NEMA-C and IEC-frame motors. The series are capable of handling liquids from 1 to 250,000 cSt viscosity. These cast and ductile iron pumps are especially applicable on fuels, lube oils, adhesives, polyurethanes, heat transfer liquids, edible oils, solvents, paints and coatings, and general chemical applications. Use of the magnetic drive is especially important where liquid or vapor leakage is not allowable, where air infiltration through a seal into the pump is not allowable, or where unplanned downtime due to seal leakage cannot be tolerated. To match the pump to the application, the company offers a broad range of bearing options, porting options, clearance options, sealing options and drive options, all of which contribute to ease of installation and reliability.
