Wilden: New Diaphragms for Industrial Applications

Monday, May 22nd, 2017 von admin

The new Chem-Fuse diaphragms are specifically designed for industrial applications. The Chem-Fuse diaphragm technology eliminates the potential leak point at the outer piston as well as outer piston abrasion. This is crucial for industrial applications that pump abrasive or dangerous fluids. The diaphragm design also offers easy cleanability for faster changeovers between products. These features allow Chem-Fuse diaphragms to enhance productivity, reliability and safety.

An additional benefit of Chem-Fuse diaphragms compared to other reduced-stroke integral piston diaphragms is the use of a large integral piston and full-stroke shaft that provides greater efficiency. This design allows Chem-Fuse diaphragms to provide up to 100 % increased flow and suction lift compared to other diaphragms.

Flotronic: The One-Nut Design for hygienic AODD

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017 von admin

UK specialist pump manufacturer Flotronic Pumps Limited was founded by Lew Norris in 1981. The engineering design consultancy ‘Norris Brothers’ had been involved in the design of  specialist pumps since 1952.  Lew Norris’ new company pioneered the air-operated, double-diaphragm ‘One-Nut’ pump. Flotronic’s ‘One-Nut’ design allows quick pump disassembly for inspection, cleaning and maintenance – delivering a massive benefit for pump users in terms of reduced down-time, particularly as the pump can be inspected or maintained in line without disconnection of pipework. Flotronic remains the only British-owned specialist manufacturer of air-operated, double-diaphragm pumps in the UK.

Neptune: Mechanically Actuated Diaphragm Metering Pump

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016 von admin

neptune_mp7000The Neptune Series MP7000 has been engineered from the ground up to be more robust and durable than similar mechanical diaphragm pump designs. The Series MP7000 pump incorporates the ruggedness of a hydraulic diaphragm metering pump, eliminates the need for intermediate fluid or hydraulic oil to actuate the diaphragm and reduces the potential for gearbox oil to contaminate the process. Series MP7000 pumps also feature a finned gearbox that dissipates the heat created during normal operation more readily than other designs, oversized check valves that improve performance and minimize friction losses, and rugged bronze gears for quite-running and long service life. Additionally, the straight-through flow design of the Series MP7000 liquid end and the elimination of the contour plate results in improved flow characteristics, making the pump the ideal solution for pumping difficult chemicals such as viscous fluids, shear-sensitive fluids and fluids with suspended solids.

Neptune: New Metering Pump

Monday, June 13th, 2016 von admin

Neptune_MP7100The new Series MP7100 is a mechanically actuated diaphragm metering pump. The MP7100 pump incorporates the ruggedness of a hydraulic diaphragm metering pump, eliminates the need for intermediate fluid or hydraulic oil to actuate the diaphragm and reduces the potential for gearbox oil to contaminate the process. The result is a pump design that provides accurate dosing of a wide range of mild to aggressive chemicals, including those used in municipal water and wastewater treatment.

Wilden: Pure-Fuse diaphragms for hygienic applications

Tuesday, March 1st, 2016 von admin

Wilden_Pure-Fuse-DiaphragmPure-Fuse diaphragm technology incorporates a one-piece design that eliminates product-trap areas between the outer piston and diaphragm that can harbor bacteria, a critical consideration for hygienic applications. This patented design also provides an unbroken fluid-contact surface for CIP capability and reduced contamination risks. Pure-Fuse combines food-grade plastics and elastomers with a stainless-steel core using no adhesives or nylon fabric that can contaminate process fluids in the event of a breech. In addition, by eliminating the outer piston Pure-Fuse diaphragms experience reduced abrasion, which results in longer diaphragm life.
