Blackmer®, a global leader in positive displacement pumps and an operating company within Dover Corp.’s Pump Solutions Group (PSGTM), has announced the availability of XLW Series sliding vane pumps designed to handle liquids with suspended particles up to 250 microns and 25% concentration, such as oxide primers, inks, paints and adhesives.

XLW Series pumps are designed with hardened ductile iron materials, giving the pump the ability to easily handle abrasive liquids. Available with O-rings, mechanical seals, relief valves, springs, vanes and rotors, the XLW pumps may be fitted to handle a variety of materials. Base-mounted unit assemblies with a helical gear reduction drive are available for all XLW models. XLW pumps are available in 2- and 3-inch port sizes and are available in flanged ports with NPT, weld, ANSI, and DIN options. The XLW Series pumps offer flow rates between 6 and 85 gpm (23 to 320 lpm) with differential pressures to 150 psi (10.34 bar). The pumps provide excellent self-priming and dry-run capabilities, and include an adjustable relief valve that protects the pump against excessive pressures.
