Sliding Vane Pump For Light-Viscosity Chemical-Handling Applications


Blackmer announces the addition of the STX2A Transport Pump to its growing line of positive displacement sliding vane transport pumps. The STX2A is a 316 stainless-steel, two-inch pump designed for clean, non-abrasive, light-viscosity fluids and chemicals.

While similar in characteristics to its STX3 and STX1220A predecessors, the STX2A distinguishes itself with its lower flow rates, operating effectively and efficiently from 15 to 60 GPM (60 to 227 L/min) - a key consideration for end-users specializing in light-viscosity chemical handling.

Other key features of the STX2A Transport Pump are:

  • Push rods allow for slower pump speeds from 350 to 780 RPM

  • Maximum viscosities of 4,600 SSU (970 cSt)

  • PTFE elastomers

  • 90-degree porting

  • Dimensional interchangeability with Blackmer TXD2, TXD1220 and STX1220A pump models

  • Foot-mounting

  • Standard Duravanes

  • Weld flanges

  • Chrome oxide-coated stainless-steel heads

  • PTFE chemical mechanical seals

  • Internal adjustable relief valve

  • Three drain ports allow draining in any mounting position

Pulsafeeder Pulsatron MP with 4-20mA

24.11.2022 -

Pulsafeeder’s Pulsatron MP Series now has an optional 4-20 mA output signal that provides remote indication of pump speed. This now allows remote confirmation that pump speed is adjusting to process parameters and more accurate estimation of chemical consumption over time. The pump transmits a 4-20 mA signal proportional to the actual speed of the unit and is factory calibrated for easy field installation.
