Pump for viscous fluids pump is now easier to fit

09 April 2017

The GVR range of gear pumps, available  from Pump Engineering, are suited to transferring a wide range of viscous fluids such as molasses. It now includes an option for face mounting on B3/B14 motors in addition to the standard B3/B5 flange mount. 

The new flange arrangement makes the pump quicker to fit as the motor feet can be used for mounting, avoiding the need for packing, for example, when used on booster sets for OEM applications which require duty standby operation.

Larger models are now also available in the 10 bar BFC range and in the 20 bar AFP range, increasing potential flow rates to 70
l/min and 80l/min respectively.
The self-priming, volumetric flanged gear pumps are suitable for handling viscous fluids (without suspended solids) and feature, as standard, a robust cast iron construction with gears and shafts in steel. Other versions are available in bronze or AISI 316 stainless steel.

GVR gear pumps have standard BSP threaded connections with larger pumps having flanged connections. They can be supplied with an internal safety relief valve while standard models are fitted with mechanical seals in ceramic, graphite and Viton, or with other mechanical seals if required. ATEX versions are also available as are options for protection to IP56.
