Wanner Engineering has announced the introduction of its new Hydra-Cell T100 Series high pressure pumps, featuring corrosion-resistant 316L stainless steel pump heads and an expanded choice of diaphragm materials, valve materials, and actuating oils. With flow rates up to 26 gpm (98 l/min; 891 BPD) and discharge pressures to 5000 psi (345 bar) the T100 is designed for a variety of applications. These include salt water disposal (SWD), salt water injection, bulk transfer and hydraulic lift in oil fields, as well as steam generation, reverse osmosis in water and wastewater treatment, and mine dewatering.
Hydra-Cell T100 Series triplex pumps are ‘packing-free’ and designed to replace horizontal centrifugal pumps and packed plunger pumps in oil and gas applications. Featuring a seal-less, multiple-diaphragm design, the company says the T100 eliminates hazardous VOC emissions along with the clean-up and disposal costs of packed-pump leakage. The design is also meant to eliminate the need for external lubrication or maintenance as well as plunger wear problems associated with packing.
Wanner claims that T100 Series pumps can run dry without damage, operate with a closed or blocked suction line, and pump hot abrasive fluids effectively. The pump employs hydraulically-balanced diaphragms that enable the pump to handle high pressures with low stress and provide linear, ‘virtually pulse-free’ flow.
Other new customer-specified materials of construction for the T100 include Aflas and EPDM diaphragms, tungsten carbide valve seats and valve discs sets, Hastelloy C and Nitronic 50 valve materials, plus valve spring retainers in 17-4 Stainless Steel, PVDF, 316 SST, and Hastelloy C. New available actuating oils include 40-weight, EPDM-compatible oil, food-contact oil, and 15W50 high-temperature, severe-duty synthetic oil.
