New Cat Triplex Plunger Pump Model for VHP Systems
Cat Pumps was founded in 1968 in Minnesota, USA. The company designs and manufactures precision reciprocating triplex pumps for high pressure applications. Unlike air-operated pumps, Cat positive displacement pumps provide predictable, high flow rates largely unaffected by the delivery pressure and at high efficiency with low pulsations.
The pump manufacturer’s newest model, 6810, is a 68-frame, block style 10K stainless steel pump specifically designed for Very High Pressure (VHP) systems. The pump can produce up to 38 l/min of consistent flow and boasts easy maintenance with a wet end that can be serviced without needing to enter the crankcase. The pump’s plunger packings and low pressure seals are also completely lubricated and cooled by the pumped liquid, which ensures a long service life.
'Since we entered the 10K market with our 1810 pump, a number of customers have asked us also to extend our offering to cover higher flow rates,' says Brian Hubbard, GM at Cat Pumps UK. 'The new Model 6810 more than triples our offering, whilst still using our field-proven 68 frame drive-end technology.'
Cat Pumps’ Model 6810 is ideal for applications in the oil and gas sector, addressing challenges posed by hydrostatic pressure testing, umbilical and control line flushing, accumulator charging, chemical injection, water jetting, high pressure washdown, surface preparation and tube cleaning.
The new Model 6810 conforms with ATEX and PED directives.
