Wanner Engineering has introduced its Model P200 Hydra-Cell Metering Solutions pumps featuring new gearbox reducers with ratios from 60:1 to 5:1. The pumps are designed for a wide range of processing applications and for use in manufacturing facilities.
When combined with variable frequency drive (VFD) electronic flow adjustment, Model P200 metering pumps with new gearboxes provide precise, accurate flow throughout the turndown range, the company said in a press release. They operate at up to 81.0 gph (255.4 lph) at pressure ratings to 350 psi (24 bar) for non-metallic pump heads and 1000 psi (69 bar) for metallic pump heads. The separate gearboxes also allow for versatility in changing applications and to prevent cross-contamination of actuating hydraulic oil. The Hydra-Cell P200 is available in Canada from John Brooks Company Limited.
Model P200 pumps feature a multiple-diaphragm design that minimizes pulsations, producing smooth, linear flow without the need for expensive pulsation dampeners. The seal-less design of Hydra-Cell means that there are no seals, cups, or packing to leak, wear or replace. Spring-loaded, horizontal disk check valves and the seal-less design enable the P200 to handle viscous fluids and abrasive particulates up to 200 microns in size. Hydra-Cell Metering Solutions pumps can also run dry indefinitely without damage to the pump and are available in a wide choice of pump head, valve, diaphragm, and o-ring materials.
One option with the P200 is the new “Control Freak” touch-screen metering controller, which features built-in programming to provide motor speed control for Hydra-Cell Metering Solutions pumps.
