Metering Pumps for Tough, Thick and Corrosive JobsAndrew Sleasman | November 20, 2017
For really tough metering applications, Vector Peristaltic Pumps by Wanner Engineering handle aggressive, high-viscosity and high-purity fluids. Vector pumps are ideal for pumping challenging fluids without altering their composition. They are capable of moving high-viscosity pasty, pulpy, thick, abrasive and corrosive solutions as well as fluids containing solids up to 3-1/2 inches (90 mm) in size. Being an efficient positive displacement pump allows discharge pressures up to 218 psig and flow capacities up to 211 gpm to be achieved.
Vector peristaltic operations principle works by compressing and relaxing a hose positioned between rotating rollers and a circular housing that provide “push” with far less hose wear. Vector pumps create 100 percent compression at all times providing accurate metering with negligible slippage. This technology produces up to 29 1/2 feet of suction lift and makes these pumps ideal for handling abrasive, shear-sensitive and corrosive fluids.
Vector peristaltic pumps can handle the most difficult process fluids to serve a wide range of commercial, institutional, industrial and municipal markets. Examples of industries that these pumps have successfully served are water and wastewater treatment, chemical processing, petrochemical, and food and dairy processing. They have been used on media with various viscosities and compositions such as dyes, acids, sewage and all types of slurries.
Vector uses a revolutionary roller mechanism instead of a rigid shoe to push fluids through its hose. This ensures longer working life with less downtime for maintenance. Visit Vectors catalog here on Engineering360 to see their range of product offerings.
