This makes the ML pumps ideal for liquid-terminal operations that require high-capacity product transfer, top or bottom loading/unloading and blending at the rack.

Blackmer’s ML pumps are well suited for barges, ships, underground/aboveground storage tanks and terminal transfers thanks to their self-priming and high-suction capabilities that enable them to clear tanks of product more effectively and efficiently than competitive models. In fact, ML pumps can handle fluid viscosities from 30 to 500,000 ssu (1.0 to 108,000 cS) with flow rates up to 600 gpm (136 m3/h) and at operating temperatures as high as 400º F (206ºC), thanks to a jacketed pump-head option.

ML pumps are available with your choice of an internal sleeve with external stuffing box or internal mechanical seals with external ball bearings, while modular bearing hubs allow the pumps to be easily reconfigured in the field. The pumps feature ductile-iron construction with a bolt-on internal relief valve that protects against excessive operating pressures. A symmetrical bearing support assures even loading and wear while providing maximum seal reliability.

Doubly Challenging: Dosing Nail Gel Efficiently

28.10.2022 -

Filling nail gel is one of the more complex applications due to the viscosity of the material. Nail gel is a chemically aggressive, UV-reactive modeling material that only hardens with the aid of UV light. With the vipura-PUMP 10T, ViscoTec has now developed a dosing technology that does equal justice to the high viscosity and the enormously stringy behavior of nail gels.
