Precision Gear Pumps Ideal for Plastics & Rubber Processes


Pump specialists Michael Smith Engineers have introduced a range of high performance external gear pumps which deliver virtually pulseless flows and are ideal for pumping high viscosity fluids at higher temperatures and pressures.

Precision Gear Pumps Ideal for Plastics & Rubber Processes

Michael Smith Engineers

The Zenith range of gear pumps are designed to provide a precise, pulseless and repeatable performance in industrial metering applications and are particularly effective in plastics and rubber production processes including polyester, polypropylene, nylon, acrylic, spandex and many other speciality materials.

They are manufactured using state-of-the-art production equipment to ensure very close tolerances and this, combined with precision machining on the pump’s components, means highly volumetric efficiency, outstanding accuracy and extended service intervals.

The range includes models which cover capacities from 0.05 cm3/ revolution up to 750 cm3/ revolution with maximum differential pressures from 70 bar for the B-9000 Series and up to 275 bar for the HPB Series. Typical applications include pumping abrasive fluids, corrosive and poor lubricating fluids occurring in polymer applications, hot melt glue dispensing, spraying paints and coatings or wherever there is a need to transfer high viscosity fluids at high temperatures and pressures.
