Sliding Vane Pumps Ideal for Numerous Applications Within Liquid-Storage Terminals

13.04.2010

Blackmer announces that its GX and X Series Sliding Vane Pumps are designed for application versatility within liquid-terminal operations. GX and X Series pumps are ideal for liquid transfer for in-line blending, mixing, packaging and loading/unloading applications of various chemicals within liquid-storage terminals.

Sliding Vane Pumps Ideal for Numerous Applications Within Liquid-Storage Terminals

Blackmer GX Series

The GX and X Series pumps — which come in eight different models with maximum flow rates between 40 and 528 U.S. gpm (150 and 1,998 lpm) — are designed specifically for reliable continuous product transfer. These pumps are ideally suited for handling numerous chemicals and petrochemicals thanks to their self-priming and high suction lift capabilities, which make them ideal for pumping from underground storage tanks and bulk plants, clearing lines, and removing product from rail and transport tankers. The GX and X Series pumps are available in 2-, 2.5-, 3- and 4-inch flanged port sizes.

The vane technology principles of the GX and X Series ensure proper sealing and volumetric output performance, even after significant in-service time. This eliminates the efficiency-robbing “slip” that shortens lobe and gear pump life, and improves production yields by stripping lines clean of residual product.

The GX and X Series both provide smooth, sliding vane action without metal-to-metal contact, which reduces pump friction, eliminates galling and minimizes agitation of fluids, resulting in shear-sensitive, mild handling of thin liquids without product degradation. The GX and X Series pumps set the industry standard for low- and medium-viscosity process and transfer applications.
