Sliding Vane Pumps

Sliding Vane Pumps

For efficient transfer of a variety of liquids over a wide range of viscosities with lubricating or non-lubricating characteristics.

Sliding Vane Pumps

Sliding Vane Pumps

Sliding Vane Pumps are a type of positive displacement pump known for their simplicity, reliability, and versatility. The core of this pump design involves vanes that slide in and out of slots in a rotor. As the rotor spins, the vanes create expanding and contracting chambers, drawing in and expelling fluid with each rotation.

Applications Across Industries:

Discover the wide-ranging applications of Sliding Vane Pumps across diverse industries:

  • Fuel Transfer: Perfect for pumping various fuels, including gasoline, diesel, and biodiesel, thanks to their ability to handle both low and high-viscosity liquids.

  • Chemical Processing: Well-suited for the transfer of non-corrosive to mildly corrosive chemicals, making them an essential component in chemical processing applications.

  • Printing and Packaging: Used for ink circulation and packaging processes, ensuring precise and consistent fluid transfer.

  • Liquid Propane (LPG) and Butane Transfer: Ideal for handling liquefied gases, contributing to safe and efficient LPG and butane transfer operations.

  • Tank Truck Unloading: Commonly employed for unloading a variety of liquids from tank trucks due to their ability to handle different viscosities.

  • Marine Applications: Vital in marine environments for tasks such as fueling, bilge pumping, and ballast transfer.

Advantages of Sliding Vane Pumps:

  • Self-Priming: Exhibits excellent self-priming capabilities, reducing the need for manual priming and enhancing operational efficiency.

  • Variable Speed Operation: Adaptable to variable speed operations, allowing for flexibility in different applications.

  • Dry Run Capability: Can operate under dry conditions for short periods without sustaining damage, contributing to pump longevity and reliability.

  • Ease of Maintenance: With a relatively simple design and fewer components, Sliding Vane Pumps are known for their ease of maintenance.

  • Consistent Flow: Delivers a consistent and pulsation-free flow, making them suitable for applications where a steady flow is crucial.
