From its Bran+Luebbe brand, SPX FLOW offers the NOVAPLEX Vector process triplex diaphragm pump. It harnesses the proven B+L diaphragm pump head design in a configuration that reduces installation footprint by arranging pump heads in three dimensions. Not only does this pump offer a compact solution, the arrangement of the heads reduces the number of crankshaft bearings from six to two, compared with B+L traditional Triplex Pumps. This use of fewer moving parts increases reliability of the pump as well as reducing maintenance overheads.
The diaphragm technology in the NOVAPLEX Vector pump is designed to prevent leaks of dangerous or hazardous chemicals. The pump is ideal for a range of duties including high pressure injection and fluid transfer on services including water, methanol, glycol and enhanced oil recovery polymer. It is available with a choice of diaphragm materials to suit application needs with PTFE diaphragms handling pressures up to 400 bar and metal diaphragms pressures up to 1000 bar.
