Hurll Nu-Way has launched a new range of air operated double diaphragm pumps in the Australian market.
Designed and manufactured in the USA by Tuthill Corporation under the brand name Sotera Systems, the SP100 Series air operated double diaphragm pumps incorporate several key features unique to this pumping principle.
The patented QuikSeal threaded ring for instance, is designed for quick-turn access to clear ball checks and replace diaphragms. This clever design eliminates the need for multiple fasteners (bolts) on the manifolds and fluid caps reducing parts and complexity. The threaded ring has the added benefit of reducing maintenance time by up to 50%, with its design also reducing pinch points on the diaphragm resulting in longer diaphragm life.
Also patented, the QuickFlow air valve design features an extremely fast trip-over, resulting in 67% reduction in pulsation and one of the highest and smoothest flows in the industry (up to 17.5 gpm for the ½” model; 57 gpm for the 1” model). In many applications pulse dampeners can be eliminated, making the pumping system less complex and saving money.
The SP100 Series double diaphragm pumps also deliver a 20% improvement in air efficiency compared to competitive pumps, with lower air consumption saving money over the long run.
The SP100 can be configured in materials compatible with a wide range of chemicals, allowing for versatile application.
