Wanner's new water and wastewater pump eliminates VOC emissions
Minneapolis based Wanner Engineering has introduced its new Q155 Series Quintuplex seal less pumps. The new pumps are designed for a range of applications including reverse osmosis in water and wastewater treatment, mine dewatering, salt water disposal, salt water injection, bulk transfer, hydraulic lift and steam generation.
Featuring a seal-less, multi-diaphragm design, the new Q155 pumps eliminate hazardous volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions, as well as the clean-up and disposal costs of packed-pump leakage.
According to Wanner Engineering, the new medium pressure line of pumps are “packing free” and designed to replace horizontal centrifugal pumps and packed plunger pumps.
Wanner Engineering’s press release claims that as well as boasting zero leakage, the Q155 Series pumps can run dry without suffering damage, will operate with a closed or blocked suction line, and can effectively pump abrasive fluids. Hydraulically balanced diaphragms meanwhile, enable the pumps to handle high pressures with low stress and pump hot, abrasive fluids.
The Q155 Medium Pressure line includes two models: Q155K with a maximum flow rate of 78 gpm (295 l/min) and maximum discharge pressure of 3000 psi (207 bar); Q155M with a maximum flow rate of 65 gpm (246 l/min) and maximum discharge pressure of 3500 psi (241 bar).
