“pick the best pump for the job�

Air Operated Double Diaphragm Pumps Wilden are the worlds largest manufacturer of Air Operated Double Diaphragm Pumps and acquired Almatec GmbH in 2006. Pioneered by Jim Wilden in 1955, the range has grown to encompass a complete array of designs, sizes and materials of construction.

Wilden’s revolutionary Advanced™ Series pumps were specifically designed to maximise performance and efficiency. The bolted configuration of these pumps ensures total product containment while the redesigned liquid path reduces internal friction to maximise output.

Wilden's Original™ clamp band pump and Advanced™ bolted series pumps are available in a complete range of metal and plastic constructions. The Pro-Flo X air distribution system gives ultra reliability and maximises air efficiency to reduce operating costs.

The Saniflo™ Series pump line is specifically designed to meet the strict cleanliness guidelines established for sanitary process applications. Saniflo™ pumps incorporate a straight flow-through design, allowing large solids passage and easy drain down in CIP processes.

Almatec manufacture a complete range of machined plastic pumps. Available in Polyethylene and PTFE construction also with conductive plastic ATEX compliant models in port sizes from 6mm to 50mm. Quiet operation and high efficiency from the perswing air valve. –4–

“we make your business our business�

Rotary Positive Displacement Pumps Blackmer and Mouvex trace their roots back more than 100 years and together are rotary positive displacement pumps for the transfer of liquids and liquified gas products. Blackmer and Mouvex products are used in a variety of industries including chemical processing, offshore oil, petrochem, biofuel, liquified gas, resin, paint, ink, food and beverage.

Sliding Vane These pumps have a number of vanes that are free to slide into or out of slots in the pump rotor. Unlike gear pumps, sliding vanes compensate for wear and maintain full pumping efficiency. When worn out, the vanes are simply replaced without the need to remove any motor coupling or pipework connections.

Mouvex Principle The unique Mouvex principle eccentric disc pump produces the pumping performance of a rotary positive displacement pump by oscillation alone. The wetted pumping elements do not rotate and the pump is totally sealless. An extremely gentle pumping action enables the pump to handle shear sensitive fluids.

ProVane® The ProVane® Motor Speed sliding vane pump offers all the benefits of traditional sliding vane technology but with cost efficient direct motor coupling and single seal.

P Series The Mouvex design sliding vane pump has in-line porting and is fully reversible for flow in either direction. The pump is available in cast iron and stainless steel construction –6–

“built to perform”

Waukesha Cherry-Burrell Waukesha Cherry-Burrell pumps are supplied to a wide variety of industries around the world including food, dairy, beverage, pharmaceutical, personal care, pulp and paper, automotive paint, hydrocarbon processing, films, coatings and adhesives. The Waukesha ‘Universal’ world famous brand out performs all rotary lobe and wing rotor pump technologies.

The Universal External Circumferential Piston (ECP) design has an extended sealing path between rotor and body, preventing product slippage and shear therefore enabling increased efficiency and ability to deliver high discharge pressures. The ECP design also provides a very gentle pumping action making the pump ideally suited for solids and large particulate handling.

The Universal l and second generation Universal ll offer a range of build options including rectangular flange, mechanical seals, CIP build, Asceptic build, heating jacket, high temperature extra clearance rotors, single wing rotors and stainless steel gearcase. Meets hygienic 3A and EHEDG standards.and some models can operate up to 34 bar pressure.

The complete range of sanitary centrifugal pumps are manufactured with casing and impeller in polished stainless steel. Modular in design, the pumps minimise spares inventory and have a range of mechanical seal options.

The Medium Duty Lobe (MDL) pump has been developed specifically to handle the medium duty applications where a simple tri-lobe design can provide a cost effective pumping solution. A modular design maximises parts interchangeability. –8–

Looking at the big picture. It’s not about size, but about perspective. The main reason system thinking is so effective is precisely because it considers the totality of the process and breaks it down into functions rather than just components. And when you consider the big picture in this way, it becomes a matter of perspective, not of size. It means looking both at existing and at new processes with fresh eyes. Then it requires examination of how efficiently each function is performing and how well it serves its purpose, rather than concentrating just on the specifications of the individual components.

AxFlow systems step by step. Step 1: The concept – It is important for us to discuss your current experience and your system expectations so that we can apply our design skills to develop a system solution to exactly match your process and operational needs.
