Blackmer® Sliding Vane Pumps for Energy Efficient, Safe Transfer of Dangerous Chemicals
Product News Mar 30, 2012
Blackmer® has announced that its Sliding Vane Pumps and System One® centrifugal pumps will be on display at ACHEMA in Hall 8.0, Stand F43.
ACHEMA 2012 is the largest chemical processing trade show in the world, and will be held June 18-22, 2012, in Frankfurt am Main in Germany.
The global chemicals industry is facing stricter regulations, with greater emphasis being placed on identifying and containing chemicals that could potentially pose a threat to human life and the environment.
Blackmer’s Sliding Vane Pumps are available in compatible materials with shaft sealing options that make them the ideal for many dangerous chemical applications.
NP Series pumps are available in five sizes, with port sizes from 1.5- to 4-inch. They feature flow rates from 5 to 500 gpm (19 to 1,893 lpm) at operating temperatures up to 500°F (260°C), with an optional jacketed pump head for high-temperature operating atmospheres.
They can handle viscosities ranging from 30 to 20,000 ssu (4,250 cP) at differential pressures up to 150 psi (10.3 bar) with standard construction, while an adjustable relief valve protects against excessive operating pressures.
All NP pump models feature Blackmer’s revolutionary sliding-vane operating principles, which guarantee consistent volumetric performance, even after significant in-service time.
This eliminates the efficiency-robbing “slip” that shortens lobe and gear pump life, and improves production yields by stripping lines of residual product. NP pumps also offer excellent self-priming and dry-run capabilities.
Blackmer will also be featuring its System One centrifugal pumps at ACHEMA.
Designed around the seal where 90% of pump failures occur, the System One has a stiffer heavy-duty shaft and larger bearings resulting in the widest operational window off the Best Efficiency Point (BEP) than any standard process pump.
This means facility operators can expect the System One pump to improve mean time between failures to reduce maintenance costs.
