Pumps Unique and Versatile Pumps with Multiple Mounting Orientations
Wilden has extended its line of specialty AODD pumps with the addition of the new V150 13 mm (1/2”) Velocity Series pump.
Featuring a unique detachable mounting foot, Velocity Series pumps can easily be reoriented into a vertical or horizontal position with multiple inlet and discharge port options. With this innovative and versatile design, the pump can be installed in multiple orientations, a critical consideration for systems and skids, states the company.
The Velocity Series – available in 13 mm (1/2”) and 6 mm (1/4”) sizes – features a bore-seal design that eliminates leaks that can result from torque decay. It also delivers improved dry suction lift up to 4.3 m (14.2’) in the 6 mm (1/4”) size and 5.1 m (16.9’) in the 13 mm (1/2”) size better priming, claims the firm. In addition, the pumps incorporate a proven and simple air distribution system (ADS) with only two moving parts that reduces the risk of downtime for long-term reliability.
According to the company, the pumps are available in polypropylene and PVDF construction, as well as an Accu-Flo (solenoid) option, with elastomer options that include PTFE and Wil-Flex. Velocity Series pumps feature an interchangeable footprint with previous Wilden designs (P.025, P25, P1 and P100) for user convenience.
