Graco Husky Diaphragm Pumps

Graco is a US manufacturer that makes air operated double diaphragm (AODD) pumps. They were established in 1926. Their first product was a grease gun powered by air pressure. It would be the beginning of what would turn into a firm with over $100 million dollars in sales. AODD pumps are used in many industries, such as food processing, metal fabrication, wastewater, painting, chemical and agriculture.

Graco Husky diaphragm pumps are built to provide consistent, efficient performance. They feature solid construction that makes them corrosion resistant for long life and reliable performance. Their solid, heavy-duty design and build offer long service life and increased productivity, ensuring a lower over cost for operation and ownership.

Graco Pumps

Graco Husky diaphragm pumps can pump up to 1135 lpm. Their port sizes vary from ¼” to 3” with BSP, NPT and flange choices. Maintenance is easy with Graco Husky diaphragm pumps because they have fewer moving parts than comparable pumps in the industry. It is also easy to service Graco Husky diaphragm pumps because the complete air valve can be easily accessed without having to remove the pump.

The air valve is a low-pulsation valve which is stall-free. This lowers downtime by making changeover fast, easy and efficient.

Graco Husky diaphragm pumps are available in a wide selection of plastic and metal models, including ATEX models. You can select different materials depending upon your intended application, including the transfer of abrasive or corrosive fluids.

Becker U Series Rotary Vane Vacuum Pumps

We import Becker Pumps because they are one of the best manufacturers in the world. Based in Germany, Becker are known throughout the world for their rotary vane vacuum pumps.

Today we would like to tell you about their U Series rotary vane vacuum pumps. The U Series are oil-lubricated and configured with a direct drive and single shaft. The pumps also feature efficient oil separation and a non-return valve. The return oil intake is regulated by a float valve. The end result is a durable and sturdy unit which runs efficiently and has low maintenance and operation costs.

The U Series uses a gas ballast valve to mitigate the condensation of steam. The valve allows a precise amount of fresh air into the compression chamber. The mixture of saturated air and unsaturated fresh air helps keep the condensation as low as possible. Noise emissions are minimised by a protective cover.

For applications with a higher operating temperature or a higher water intake temperature, a water cooling system can be added. This increases the service life of the oil. In addition, Becker makes a host of other accessories for this series to fit it for different applications.

The U Series features eight sizes with outputs from 6.4 m3/h to 780 m3/h. They have the shortest downtimes of any pump in their class. The pumps are easily installed. Becker U Series pumps can operate without a heat exchanger due to their high efficiency. Their standard IE3 efficiency motors require less power to do more work.

The oil reservoir features a two-step oil separation process that includes an oil/air separator element to increase the efficacy of oil separation. The unit includes an oil filter which helps to increase the service life.

Becker U Series pumps are easily cleaned because they have smooth surfaces. They are so hygienic that they can be used for vacuum packaging for foods such as cheese, meats, cold meats and fish.

Tsurumi TRN Pumps for Submersible Self-Aspiration Aeration

We have done business with Tsurumi Pumps for a long time. They are a manufacturer that has been in business close to a hundred years and have proven themselves to be among the most reliable, high-quality manufacturers in the industry. Their submersible pumps have become industry standards in many industry segments.

One such pump which has become the standard in the wastewater industry is their TRN series. Tsurumi TRN pumps are submersible self-aspiration aerators. They are used to aerate and mix wastewater.

Their design features a special, semi-open impeller. This design causes negative pressure to be generated around the impeller. This draws air into the water from above the water surface. The air that has been drawn mixes with the water in a process called aeration. Then, the pump discharges the mixture of air and water.

This process is ultra-efficient at dissolving oxygen because it aerates the water under a high-pressure condition.

There is a limit to how deep each pump can effectively aerate water, but Tsurumi has solved that problem. They offer a stand that is either a standalone product or is used with a draft tube.

The air inlet bores start at 32mm and go all the way up to 150mm. Motor output ranges from 0.75 kW to 40 kW. All TRN pumps are three-phase pumps. The smallest pump allows for the passage of solids measuring 10 mm. The largest pump allows solids passage of 25 mm.

For the smaller pumps, the maximum water depth is 3.5 m. Larger pumps can operate down to 6 m below the surface.

Tsurumi Submersible Seawater Pumps

Tsurumi Pumps have been making high quality pumps since they were established in 1924, in Japan. Their submersible pumps have a reputation as being among the best in the industry. But there is one niche in which they have everyone beaten hands down: submersible seawater pumps.

Tsurumi designs their submersible pumps in a manner that helps them handle virtually any liquid. This includes corrosive liquids, hot water, wastewater and seawater. The durability of Tsurumi pumps and their ability to handle so many different media is just one reason why they hold such a high stature in the industry.

The Tsurumi solution to the problem of corrosive liquids is to build their pumps out of titanium. Any part that comes into contact with liquids on any Tsurumi submersible pump is made out of titanium to keep them from corroding and to give them a longer life.

Tsurumi Submersible Seawater Pumps

Tsurumi TM-Series Submersible Seawater Pumps

The Tsurumi Seawater Pump series combines titanium with specially formulated resins that are also resistant to seawater. Since titanium is so expensive, Tsurumi uses the resins as a way to lower the cost of their seawater pumps while still providing the highest quality in the business. The end result is a pump that is reliable, efficient and cost-effective.

Seawater is Difficult to Handle

Because seawater is so corrosive, it is necessary to take countermeasures when building submersible pumps to transport it. If precautions are not taken, the seawater can cause corrosion, pump damage and even pump failure.

Other pump manufacturers tend to use stainless steel as a material and coated castings. However, stainless steel pumps suffer from localised corrosion, while the coating tends to peel off coated castings with prolonged use. Ultimately, most submersible pumps suffer from short service lives when being used for see water.

Many operations and manufacturers are still using stainless steel pumps for seawater, but the aforementioned corrosion ends up increasing the costs greatly. Stainless steel forms a chromium oxide coating on the surface, but in the absence of sufficient oxygen, the surface degrades and corrodes quickly.

Marine organisms or packing can often cause degradation of stainless steel pumps. Once the surface is compromised, water eventually ends up in the motor and the pump fails. The main takeaway here is that stainless steel pumps are not fully resistant to seawater.

In experiments that Tsurumi have conducted on stainless steel pumps, they have found that degradation begins usually within six months. We don’t feel that is a long enough service life for any pump.

Why Tsurumi TM-Series Pumps are the Industry Standard for Seawater

Tsurumi submersible sea water pumps feature a combination of titanium and resin. This allows Tsurumi pumps to transport seawater with no corrosion or degradation of any part of the pump.

Tsurumi’s resin components are specially designed so that each individual part is made of the resin that is most likely to prevent the pump from corroding.The end result is a pump that has a much longer service life than those made of stainless steel or standard resin materials.

Tsurumi submersible seawater pumps can be used for intake, draining and circulation purposes. The lubricating oil is made out of food grade paraffin. This makes it fish friendly and 100% safe for operations involving fish, such as water tanks, fish preserves and fish farms.

Tsurumi submersible sea water pumps offer discharge bore diameters from 40 to 80mm. Motor capacities start at 0.25 kilowatts and go up to 3.7 kilowatts. Single phase pumps are available up to 0.75 kilowatts. There are also models available that operate automatically.
