Mouvex introduces new disc pumps for chemical applications

Mouvex, a manufacturer of positive displacement pumps, vane compressors, screw compressors and hydraulic coolers, has launched new models of its Seal-less Drive Eccentric Disc pumps.

These SLC4 and SLC8 pumps have been designed for use in general industry applications, as well as the handling of numerous chemical-based compounds, including isocyanates, polyols, additives, solvents, glues (starches and latex), paints and coatings (inks and resins), methacrylates and detergents.

They both incorporate double-wall bellows into the design, along with monitoring that is done by pressure switch. By mounting the pressure switch on the bellows flange, the bellows become an independent sub-assembly within the pump, making for safer and easier operation.

Other improvements in the SLC4 and SLC8 pumps includes the ability to handle differential pressures up to 10bar in the SLC4 and 6bar in the SLC8, and high-quality sand castings that are integrated into the manifold flange and bracket, which are compatible with ISOPN16 and ANSI150 flanges.

Along with these advancements, the SLC4 and SLC8 pumps offer other features including:
• Completely seal-less design
• Self-priming and dry-run capabilities
• Exceptional volumetric efficiency even with variable viscosities and pressures
• A strong vacuum and compression effect that allows for line stripping
• Low shear rate for gentle product handling
• Two wear parts that can be replaced quickly while the pump is online
• Optional heating jacket
• Approved for use in ATEX atmospheres

The introduction of the innovative SLC4 and SLC8 pump is the latest step in Mouvex's replacement of its C Series line, which was introduced in 1996. Already, the SLC1, SLC2 and SLC3 models have been introduced to the general industry and chemical markets, with the launch of the SLC12, SLC18, SLC24 and SLC36 models expected in 2014.
