Heat Option for Sliding Vane Pumps
Blackmer, a supplier of positive displacement pumps and reciprocating compressor
technologies, has upgraded the 4-in.
model of its NP Series sliding vane pumps
with optional electric heating. The 4-in.
model joins the previously upgraded 2.5-
and 3-in. models, completing Blackmer's
line of NP Series pumps with this option.
The electric heating option may be used in
place of jacketed heads in order to provide
pump heating for applications that normally require jackets. Blackmer will continue
to offer jacketed heads for customers who
need NP pumps with steam and hot-oil
capabilities. Blackmer said its NP Series
pumps are specifically designed to offer
maximum versatility for handling a wide
variety of clean, non-corrosive liquids,
including fluids of varying viscosities and
temperatures. These pumps have been
designed to minimize shear and agitation
while providing excellent self-priming and
dry run capabilities.
