Pump has heat dissipation technology

Paul Boughton

Designed to handle a wide variety of chemicals and low-pH process fluidsthe Wilden Typhoon plastic mag-drive pumps from Axflow are available from 0.75kW (1HP) through to 3.75kW (5HP).

Most importantlythey do this without the mechanical seals used in typical centrifugal pumpsthereby reducing the risk of leakage.

The Typhoon pump comes as standard with the latest heat-dissipation technology in the form of a patented fluid flow path around the bushing.

This additional path allows the process fluid to cool the bushing of the impeller from the outsidewhile continuing to offer the internal spiral cooling channel offered on most magnetic-drive centrifugal pumps.

Pump designers report that this innovative feature prevents the heat build-up that frequently damages or completely disables the shaft bushing.

Offering flow rates up to an impressive 800litres/minthe Typhoon Mag-Drive is a compact unit that can help to increase productivityreduce operating costs and give the leak-free performance that so many chemical duties demand. Applications where the typhoon has proved more effective than alternative designs – even when questions about the suitability of mag-drive pumps have been raised – include transferring copper acidcaustic sodawater with trace sulphuric acid and liquid ammonia.
