The pulsation inherent in vane-type pumps turns out not to be a problem for Coriolis flowmeters—Coriolis flowmeters offer users many advantages over positive-displacement (PD) meters. But can they be used with PD pumps? Engineers from pump manufacturer Blackmer decided to investigate.
Blackmer, part of Pump Solutions Group (PSG) and a global leader in positive displacement and centrifugal pump, and reciprocating compressor technologies, has announced that its XL Series Sliding Vane Pumps have been designed to meet the unique handling characteristics of crude oil that is produced from shale formations.
Blackmer launches its new NPH4F Sliding Vane Pump. The NPH4F is a positive-displacement sliding vane pump specifically designed to offer maximum versatility in fluid processing and transfer applications for a wide range of clean, non-corrosive fluids, the company explained.
Blackmer has extended the product warranty and performance assurance on its TXD sliding vane pumps: The Standard Warranty – which applies to models TXD2, TXD2.5, TXD3, TXD1220, TXD1225 and TXD1230 – has been lengthened to 60 months from installation or 66 months from purchase.
Blackmer announced that its XL Series sliding vane pumps can improve overall efficiency and performance in lube oil applications. The design advantages have resulted in improved performance, longer service life and reduced maintenance requirements, while providing reduced energy consumption in numerous transfer applications within a lube oil plant.
Pump specialist Blackmer launches the new STX2A sliding vane pump. The STX2A is a 316 stainless-steel, two-inch pump designed for clean, non-abrasive, light-viscosity fluids and chemicals, well suited for light-viscosity chemical-handling applications that require low flow rates.
Modern soap manufacturers process a variety of hundreds of ingredients to different products — a challenging task for the process developer, especially when it comes to laying out pipes and pumps. Read how modern sliding vane pumps meet the challenge offer a clean advantage for soap and detergents manufacturers.
Loading, transferring and unloading of solvents is where Blackmer's new X and GX Series Sliding Vane Pumps feel right at home. Especially the processing of 'carrier' solvents in Paint & Coatings manufacturing applications is a typical task for the its new units, the company says.
