Mouvex Unveils Improved A Series Disc Pumps
Mouvex is a leading manufacturer of positive displacement pumps, vane compressors, screw compressors, and hydraulic coolers. Last month, the company announced that its A Series Eccentric Disc Pump is now designed to handle applications in chemical, oil, food, and gas markets.
A Series eccentric disc pumps are known for being highly reliable. The pump design upgrades include the implementation of ISO PN16/ANSI 150 flanges and an increase in maximum differential pressure from 5 bar (72 psi) to 10 bar (145 psi). The latter improvement enables the pump to safely transfer viscous, non-lubricating, volatile or delicate fluids.
“The Mouvex A Series pump remains one of the most robust and reliable pumps on the market,” says Paul Cardon, Product Manager, Industry, Mouvex. “Now, the recent enhancements allow this long-lasting pump to be used in global chemical, food and oil applications where it previously could not.”
Switching materials of construction from cast iron to ductile iron was a critical upgrade for companies in the petrochemical industry, who are integrating ductile iron systems into their processes. The upgraded pumps are compatible with both Mouvex and standardized mechanical seals, allowing easy installation in virtually any location. The mechanical seal provides efficient shaft sealing from behind the pump piston.
Mouvex A Series pumps can transfer product up to 250°C (482°F), have maximum speeds to 750 rpm, and maximum flow rates to 55 m3/h (242 gpm). Suction and discharge ports are available from 1” through 4” in size. As a positive displacement pump type that operates with eccentric disc technology, the A Series is self-priming and offers run-dry capabilities of up to three minutes. The pumps are durable over time, can maintain constant flow throughout changes in viscosity or pressure, and are ATEX-certified for use in potentially hazardous environments.
