The multiple pumping elements & seal-less design distinguishes the Hydra-Cell® pumps from other reciprocating pumps and is the basis of its long service life.
Pumps with dynamic seals rely on the pumped liquid for seal lubrication yet many of these liquids can be harmful to pump seals.
Pumps with single pumping elements generate hydraulic vibrations, requiring greater pump and system maintenance
The seal-less nature of the Hydra-Cell pumps enables liquids containing particles to be processed without the need for fine filtration and very low viscosity liquids to be pumped successfully.
Hydra-Cell pumps need little maintenance and can operate at continuous duty at low or high pressure. Hydra-Cell pumps require no expensive and time consuming seal maintenance, special tools or equipment to service the pump.
Compact and highly efficient (80-92%) no matter what the liquid is, a Hydra-Cell pump can be fitted with a smaller motor than would be required by many other pump technologies for equivalent flows and pressures.
The multiple pumping elements mean that pulsation is very low, so dampeners are not required in 99% of metering and dosing applications.
Pumping chamber is 100% sealed so chemicals sensitive to exposure to air or moisture are not degraded and hazardous chemicals are totally contained, eliminating any environmental issues.
- Handles Solids and Abrasives
Hydra-Cell pumps can handle solids up to 500 microns, or more depending on the model. They can handle non-lubricating liquids and those containing abrasive particles that destroy other pump technologies. Hydra-Cell pumps do not require fine filtration and with no dynamic seals, even sub 10 micron particles can be handled reliably.
- Wide range of materials of construction
Cast Iron to Hastelloy and a wide range of elastomers all ensure the most cost effective solution is found.
Hydra-Cell pumps can run dry indefinitely without damage.
- Patented Diaphragm position control
This unique feature of hydra-cell pumps
- Keeps the diaphragm safe if the suction line is closed accidently
- Ensures incredible accuracy in metering and dosing applications
- Accurate and Controllable
Discharge flow rate can be controlled to meet or exceed API 675 performance characteristics in terms of:
–Steady state accuracy better than +/-1%
–Linearity better than +/- 3%
–Repeatability better than +/- 3%
