WANNER ENGINEERING INC.: Sealless Pumps
This company has announced a major upgrade to its Hydra-Cell D10 Series sealless pumps. The new models with metallic pump heads can now reportedly operate at up to 1,500 psi (103 bar) discharge pressure. Used for a range of processing applications and in manufacturing plants, the new models have a flow capacity of 4.26 gpm (15.1 l/min) with a motor speed of 790 rpm when performing at the higher pressure rating.
The sealless design means that there are no mechanical seals, cups, or packing to leak, wear, or replace, according to the company. Spring-loaded, horizontal disk check valves and the sealless design can enable model D10 pumps to handle viscous fluids and abrasive particulates up to 500 microns in size.
