Wilden_PS_Stallion_groupThe Stallion series are developed for pumping fluids with high solid content. A shock-absorbing polyurethane screen base absorbs the impact from constant assault by solid particles. The pumps also feature a large internal clearance and flow-through design to keep the pump from clogging; an integrated suction strainer; and an altered ball/seat check valve assembly. These pumps are made for rugged utilitarian applications that require a robust design.

Stallion pumps now also come equipped with the Wilden Pro-Flo Shift ADS.

Flotronic: New ‘E’ Series’ achieves EHEDG seal of approval

Monday, September 14th, 2015 von admin

EHEDG Series pump cutoutFlotronic Pumps Limited, the UK-based specialist manufacturer of air-operated double diaphragm pumps, having already secured 3-A Sanitary Standards, Inc (3-A SSI) approval for their ‘H’ series pump, have now achieved the European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group (EHEDG) accreditation for their new ‘E’ Series pump.

The ‘E’ Series pump has been specifically designed for the Food and Beverage industry and other processes where product contamination must be avoided. The pump’s features include Flotronic’s established and unique ‘One-Nut’ pump design which allows swift diaphragm access without disconnecting process pipework. The internal surfaces of the ‘E’ Series pump can be effectively ‘cleaned in place’ or, alternatively, easy dismantling can be carried out for cleaning and inspection. Cleaning is aided by the provision of polished wetted surfaces to 0.8μm Ra maximum and an electro-polished overall finish. Cleanability is also assisted by the incorporation of a support stand whereby the pump can be inverted for full draining.


EagleBurgmann: New mechanical seal for chemical pumps

Wednesday, September 9th, 2015 von admin

PM EagleBurgmann HRCNWith the HRC N mechanical seal series, EagleBurgmann provides a seal system (version DIN 24960, Part C) for standard chemical pumps with conically opened sealed space that complies with the requirements for a standardized and application-related seal solution.

As a novelty within the HRC… N series, EagleBurgmann has now launched the optimized double seal HRC3300N on the market that has the same mounting dimensions and which uses some of the non-variable parts from the predecessor HRC3000N. A new stationary seat that does not require binding was used. This, and the improvements to the seal on the atmosphere side, makes the HRC3300N definitely more service friendly. Omitting the binding makes it possible to use the high-performance DiamondFace diamond coating, and the operating temperature increases to +200°C (+392°F). (more…)
