Online software helps in pump selection
KSB Canada’s website, www.ksb.ca, features a new release of the EasySelect online tool for selecting and configuring pumps, covering an expanded line-up of standard pumps for sectors such as water, wastewater and industrial applications. This easy-to-use tool considers both technical specifications and economic criteria such as energy use. In addition, it gives users access to supporting documentation, including data sheets, performance curves and installation diagrams. The information can be printed or downloaded.

Vane pump is rated for use with water-glycol hydraulic fluids
Eaton has announced that its Vickers 35V series vane pumps have been tested and qualified to operate at full pressure ratings with good quality, water-glycol hydraulic fluids. These improved ratings make the pumps suitable for use in such applications as die-cast, primary metals, forging and automotive assembly/welding. Featuring a pressure-balanced design for long service life, the pumps are qualified to 172 bar (2,500 psi) at 1,800 rpm with inlet pressure of 0 psig to 5 psig.

Intensifier pump is for UHP water applications
The 150-hp, 60,000-psi iP60-150 waterjet intensifier pump is capable of producing up to 11.4 l/min. (3 gpm) of ultra-high-pressure water for precision water jet cutting and UHP surface preparation applications. It supports orifices up to 0.64 mm (0.025 in.) and features dual intensifier systems. Features include an efficient kidney loop hydraulic cooling and filtration system, an anti-corrosive interior coated hydraulic reservoir, easy-to-remove lift-off covers and touch-screen controls. The motor drive assembly is mounted on an isolation system to reduce noise and vibration.

Tubing withstands extremely harsh chemicals
Texfluor PTFE tubing from Parker Hannifin is highly chemical- and corrosion-resistant. It is resistant to such highly corrosive chemicals as aqua regina, hydrofluoric acid and hydrogen peroxide. In addition, there is no solution that will swell or dissolve PTFE at temperatures below 570°F (327°C). The tubing is odourless, tasteless, non-wetting and non-leaching, and is easy to clean, anti-stick and resistant to extreme heat and cold, and to ultraviolet rays. Vibration damping properties are good at both sonic and ultrasonic frequencies.

Pumps designed for high-pressure applications
Viking Pump has expanded its line of high-pressure positive-displacement pumps to 43 cu m/hr (190 gpm). The pumps feature the sealless Viking Mag Drive, single or double cartridge seals, component mechanical seals or lip seals. The SG-10 and SG-14 sealless external gear pumps are for high-pressure applications where liquid or vapour containment is crucial. The series offers 29 displacements, and pressures to 34 bar (500 psi) standard, with some models offering pressure up to 170 bar (2,500 psi). All models operate at up to four-pole motor speeds and offer either foot bracket or close-coupled motor mount to both NEMA C and IEC frame motors. They can handle liquids from 1 cSt to 250,000 cSt viscosity.

Hose maintains purity of transfer material
Parker Page offers USP Class VI certified RCTW rubber-covered fluoropolymer hose, which transfers materials without contaminating the integrity of the product. Extremely flexible and easy to clean, the hoses handle temperatures up to 149°C (300°F), while assuring product purity. The EPDM rubber covers the FEP tube with a multi-layer of rubber and polyester reinforcement with an added helical wire for support. The rubber and polyester insulate the tube, eliminating the risk for burns, and the wire helix supports full vacuum service. Sizes range from 1/2-in. ID up to 4 in. ID.
