New Magnetic Coupling Metering Gear Pump for Adhesive & Sealant Dispensing

Adhesives, Industry News, Sealants,

CIRCOR International, Inc. launched a new metering gear pump for sealing and adhesive dispensing applications. The pumps are available with a magnetic drive sealing option. The company report that its Zenith B9000 Series maintains reliable flow control despite variations in temperature, viscosity, and pressure, while significantly increasing production time. Suitable for a wide range of fluids, including those that are abrasive or have poor lubrication, the B9000 series can be used for metering adhesives, coatings, paints/varnishes, colorings, catalysts, and resins.

The new pumps are available with a magnetic drive sealing option, an innovative feature that provides a safe pumping solution, according to CIRCOR. The magnetic coupling option eliminates shaft leakage of fluids, improving plant safety while reducing VOC emissions and seal failures. The feature eliminates excessive mechanical seal failures and the need for buffer fluids, reducing downtime and improving operational efficiency.

The pumps are available in flow ranges from 5 to 27,000 cubic centimeters per minute (0.0013 to 7 gallons per minute.) and are constructed of through-hardened 400 stainless steel suited for corrosive and poor lubricating fluids. CIRCOR reports that the pump's working temperatures range from a maximum of 341C° (645 F°) and a minimum of 18.00C° (º0F) and deliver accurate and repeatable flow of metering additives, colorants, or chemicals in a compact and efficient design.
