AUSTRALIAN Pump Industries has launched a brand new range of cast 316 grade heavy-duty stainless steel end suction pumps designed specifically for the food and waste processing industries.
Available in bare shaft configuration, these pumps are claimed by Australian Pump to have a huge advantage over pressed and welded stainless pumps because they are not subject to corrosion in the welded areas.
The new Aussie NCB X series offer flows of up to 4166L per minute with heads of up to 97m.
The new series of cast stainless steel pumps are available with port sizes of 2" x 2" (50mm x 50mm), 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" (65mm x 65mm), 3" x 3" (80mm x 80mm) and 4" x 4" (100mm x 100mm).
The pumps come with heavy duty cast standard flanges to UNI 2236-PN10.
The new series is suitable for both abrasive and corrosive liquids with temperatures of up to 120°C and as low as -15°C.
Maximum operating pressure is rated at 10Bar and the pumps are recommended for maximum ambient temperature operation of 40°C.
The pumps can handle liquids with a specific gravity of 1000kg per cubic metre.
A free catalogues is available from Australian Pump Industries or its distributors throughout Australia.
The company intends to launch a range of close coupled motor pumps using the same cast 316 grade corrosion resistant stainless steel pump bodies before the end of 2006.
