Mouvex upgrades pumps to meet market demand

Mouvex, a manufacturer of positive displacement pumps, vane compressors, screw compressors and hydraulic coolers, has announced a number of upgrades to a line of its pumps.

The company's A Series eccentric disc pumps are now available in ductile iron construction, which Mouvex has said is 'critical' as more companies in the oil & gas industry are integrating ductile iron systems into their processes.

Additional upgrades include the implementation of ISO PN16/ANSI 150 flanges while offering either Mouvex or standardised mechanical seals. Maximum differential pressure has also been doubled from 5 bar (72 psi) to 10 bar (145 psi), enabling it to be used in the safe transfer of viscous, non-lubricating, volatile or delicate fluids in a variety of oil & gas applications.

The pumps have maximum speeds to 600 rpm, maximum flow rates to 55 m3/h (242 gpm), as well as suction and discharge ports from 1 1/2" through 4" in size. They enable product transfer up to 80°C (176°F), and feature self-priming and run-dry capabilities while maintaining constant flow rates regardless of changes in viscosity and pressure.

ATEX-certified for use in potentially dangerous environments, the pumps have the ability to run-dry for up to six minutes, according to Mouvex.
