Wright Flow Technologies is well known for its design and manufacture of rotary lobe pumps for over 30 years, including the new Revolution and other top-quality pumps such as the Classic+, RT pumps, and Wright Flow Sterile in GA.
Each with its distinct place in the market, this range of hygienic pumps can be used across the sanitary market from food to high-end pharmaceuticals plus many applications in fine chemicals and more industrial applications.
Wright Flow Sterile in GA has a modular design with a seal housing. They are a new concept in rotary lobe pumps designed for hygienic and industrial applications. Features include:
• Ideally suited to both hygienic and industrial applications;
• All seal combinations fully front-loading and demount able;
• Pump is fully self-draining (vertical ports);
• Hygienic cover joint profile;
• Rugged gearbox construction enables the carrying of radial loads.
The pumping action of the rotary lobe pump principle is generated by the contract-rotation of two pumping elements (rotors) within a chamber (rotor case). The rotors are located on shafts that in turn are held within a bearing housing mounted to the back of the rotor case.
The shaft assemblies are comprised of the shaft support bearings and the timing gears. The gears transfer the energy from the drive shaft to the driven shaft, synchronizing the rotors so that they rotate without contact with each other.
As the rotors pass the suction port, the cavity increases, creating a pressure decrease, which induces the pumped medium to flow into the rotor case. The pumped medium is carried around the rotor case by the rotors to the discharge side of the Wright Flow Sterile in GA. Here the cavity decreases, and the pumped medium is discharged from the rotor case.
When incorporating any pump into a system, it is considered good practice to minimize piping runs and the number of pipe fittings (tees, unions, bends etc.) and restrictions.
Particular care should be taken in designing the suction line, which should be as short and straight as possible with a minimum of pipe fittings to minimize restricting product flow to the pump.
Wright Flow Sterile in GA are of the positive displacement type and therefore an overload protection device must be provided. This can take the form of an in-line pressure relief system, i.e. external to the pump or incorporation of a torque-limiting device in the drive system.

Viking Universal Seal Internal Gear Pumps are designed to meet the demands of heavy-duty, industrial pumping applications and incorporate essential features for reliable, low-maintenance pumping, even in the most challenging environments.
For applications in sugar refineries, the Viking Pump sugar pumps in GA can be customized with various seal options, increased clearances to minimize shear, and a ribbed idler gear for applications involving the handling of solid particles.
Viking’s ribbed idler reduces gear-to-gear contact, which is one of the causes of damage to solids, such as sugar crystals, and shear sensitive liquids. This has been achieved by removing 0.9 mm (0.035” or 900 microns) of material from 80% of the flank of each idler gear tooth, on both sides.
The rib alternates position on each tooth to minimize wear on the rotor teeth in any given spot, and since the idler turns at a different speed than the rotor, the contact point changes with each revolution of the rotor gear.
Ribbed idlers on Viking Pump sugar pumps can have an impact on pump performance depending on the viscosity of the liquid. The increased clearances result in additional slip paths that allow liquid to slip back from the discharge side of the pump to the inlet side. On water-thin liquids, there is a significant decrease in capacity, especially at higher pressures.
Shear can reduce conversion efficiency in two-phase slurries like massecuite and so it needs to be kept as low as possible. Positive displacement pumps, and in particular, internal gear pumps, are preferred in applications involving shear-sensitive liquids, such as:
Emulsions (e.g. chocolate and mayonnaise)
Suspensions (e.g. microspheres in carrier liquids)
Polymers (e.g. latex, synthetic rubber and long chain polyelectrolytes)
Shear is the relative motion between adjacent layers of moving liquid, and shear rate is the rate of relative motion between adjacent layers of a moving liquid. It can be minimized by selecting a pump with extra clearances, and by running it very slowly. For most shear-sensitive liquids, Viking recommends a rotor rim speed of <300 feet/minute.
Seal Options for Viking Pump Sugar Pumps
An important feature of Viking Universal Seal Internal Gear Pumps is that they are designed to accommodate virtually all types of seal.
Packed Gland: Packed Glands are the most common shaft sealing for sugar liquids because they are simple, forgiving, and handle very high viscosities. Viking’s Universal pumps feature a drip well with a tapped port on the bracket to collect leakage at the seal gland and divert it to a collection container.
Behind-the-Rotor Mechanical Seal: Where leakage is not allowable, mechanical seal options are available. On H through QS size Viking pumps, the 4124B (non-jacketed) or 4224B (jacketed) series pumps offer an optional Abrasive Liquid Seal with Silicon Carbide faces located immediately behind the rotor.
Cartridge Double Seal: Double cartridge seals with hard faces inboard and water barrier can successfully handle sugar liquids to about 50,000 SSU, or 11,000 cSt, which makes them suitable for some syrups and molasses. These are available on all sizes of Viking pumps.
Cartridge Triple Lip Seal: Cartridge-style triple lip seals are capable of virtually unlimited viscosities but are not well-suited to abrasives. These are available on all sizes of Viking pumps. These seals should be used on syrups and molasses with a water flush or steam quench. They shouldn't be used when pumping massecuite or magma.

Viking internal gear pumps are extraordinarily versatile. While they are often used on thin liquids such as fuel oil and solvents, they excel at efficiently pumping thick liquids such as chocolate, asphalt and adhesives. The useful viscosity range of an internal gear pump is from 1cPs to over 1,000,000cP.
In addition to their extensive viscosity range, the pump has a wide temperature range as well, handling liquids up to 750F/400C. This is due to the single point of end clearance (the distance between the ends of the rotor gear teeth and the head of the pump). This clearance is adjustable to accommodate high temperature, maximize efficiency for handling high viscosity liquids, and to accommodate for wear.
The internal gear pump is non-pulsing, self-priming, and can run dry for short periods. They're also bi-rotational, which means that the same pump can be used to load and unload vessels. Because Viking internal gear pumps have only two moving parts, they are reliable, simple to operate, and easy to maintain.
1. Liquid enters the suction port between the large exterior gear and small interior gear teeth. The arrows indicate the direction of the liquid and pump.
2. Liquid travels through the pump between the teeth of the "gear-within-a-gear" principle. The semicircular shape divides the liquid and acts as a seal between the discharge and suction ports.
3. The pump head is now nearly flooded, just prior to forcing the liquid out of the discharge port. Intermeshing gears of the idler and rotor form locked pockets for the liquid which assures volume control.
4. Rotor and idler teeth interlock completely to form a seal equidistant from the discharge and suction ports. This seal forces the liquid out of the discharge port.

The number one thing that takes a positive displacement pump offline is a foreign object in the fluid. When that happens, the consequences can be devasting and the repair or replacement can be costly. But you can avoid this expensive downtime by installing Viking Lid-Ease Pump Strainers.
These pump strainers provide protection for any pumping system by preventing solids or foreign materials from entering the pump. The strainer features include:
Viking Lid-Ease Strainers are high-quality, easy-to-clean line strainers that are designed for applications in the chemical, petrochemical and most general fluid-flow industries. These single strainers are offered with tapped, flanged or grooved porting and are available for ¾, 1, 1¼, 1½, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 8-inch piping.
The basket and screen (available in 10, 20, 40, 60, 80 or 100 mesh) are constructed of stainless steel and are designed to catch all foreign objects, large or small. Nominal capacities range from 20 to 1,500 GPM with a rated pressure of up to 200 PSI. Strainer bodies and lids are presently available in cast iron, ductile iron, aluminum or stainless steel.
Low-Pressure Drop: Viking Lid-Ease Pump Strainers are designed for minimal pressure drop through the unit. Pressure drop is minimized by the inclined position of the strainer basket next to the porting. This provides smooth flow patterns not found in conventional basket type strainers.
Easy to Clean: No special tools are needed for lid removal. A simple lid rotation disengages the breech-lock lid to permit easy removal of the basket. The basket is removed from the top of the pipe strainer to eliminate foreign matter from dropping back into the line when the strainer is cleaned. The strainers are equipped with a drain plug for complete draining if required.
Their light-weight and small overall dimensions make it possible to install Viking Lid-Ease Pump Strainers in systems that cannot accommodate larger strainers of equal porting size.
For more information regarding these versatile pump strainers, you can watch a video here. As proud providers of Viking pump products, our experts are here to answer all your questions, so feel free to visit our website or call us today.
A gear pump is a type of positive displacement pump. Gear pumps use the actions of revolving gears to move fluids. The rotating gears create a liquid seal with the pump casing and generate suction at the pump inlet. The fluid that is drawn into the pump is enclosed within the teeth of the rotating gears and transported to the discharge. Today we’re discussing information related to the internal gear pump working principle in GA. There are two basic designs of gear pump - external and internal. An external gear pump consists of two duplicate, interlocking gears supported by separate shafts. An internal gear pump functions on the same principle but the two interlocking gears are of different sizes with one rotating inside the other. The rotor is an internal gear that has the teeth projecting on the inside. The Internal Gear Pump Working Principle In GA There are three stages in an internal gear pump’s working cycle - filling, transfer, and delivery. As the gears come out on the inlet side of the pump, they produce an expanded volume. Liquid flows into the cavities and is trapped by the teeth of the gears as they continue to rotate against the pump partition and casing. The trapped fluid is moved from the inlet to the discharge around the casing. As the teeth of the gears are interlocked on the discharge side of the pump, the volume is decreased and the fluid is forced out. Close tolerances between the casing and the gears allow the pump to produce suction at the inlet and prevent fluid from leaking back from the discharge side. The main Features And Benefits Of An Internal Gear Pump The internal gear pump working principle is simple and they are compacted with a limited number of moving parts. They are unable to match the pressure generated by responding pumps or the flow rates of centrifugal pumps, but they offer higher pressures and throughputs than lobe or vane pumps. Internal gear pumps have better suction abilities than external gear pumps and are more suited to high viscosity fluids. Because the output is directly proportional to rotational speed, internal gear pumps are commonly used for metering and blending operations. The low internal volume provides for a reliable measure of liquid passing through a pump and hence accurate flow control. The Main Applications For Internal Gear Pumps Some typical applications that work well with the internal gear pump working principle in GA include:
An internal gear pump moves fluid by repeatedly encompassing a fixed volume within interlocking gears and transferring it mechanically to deliver a smooth pulse-free flow proportional to the rotational speed of its gears. They are versatile and are able to operate across a wide range of fluid viscosities and temperatures. They are preferred to external gear designs in applications involving higher viscosity fluids, at high temperatures and with fluids containing solids. Typically, internal gear designs operate at lower rotational speeds than external gear designs, have greater clearances and are therefore less susceptible to wear in these applications. For the same reasons, internal gear pumps are also better suited to pumping shear-sensitive fluids.

Do you have or need air dryers products in GA for compressed air for your facility? If so, you may be confused about the different types of products that are available to you.Here is some basic information regarding commercial, industrial and construction air dryers products in GA, and how they work, to help you determine what your own needs are.
Compressed air dryers remove water vapor from compressed air. They are needed with air compressors because they concentrate various elements of the air, giving it a higher dewpoint and creating condensation that could negatively affect your facility, causing freezing, corrosion and other problems.
Different types of compressed air dryers products in GA work in different ways. There are refrigerated air dryers, desiccant air dryers, membrane air dryers and deliquescent air dryers. Which type you use will depend on what your specific application needs are.
You can find compressed air dryers in use for many applications across multiple industries, including:
Refrigerated Dryers: Refrigerated dryers are commonly used air compressor dryers that work with twin heat exchangers in order to cool down the hot air as it comes in and prevent it from condensing again. They provide a level of dryness that satisfies most compressed air uses.
Desiccant Dryers: Desiccant dryers are typically used when working with extremely sensitive products that cannot tolerate any moisture. They use active desiccant material to remove water from the compressed air through adsorption as the air cycles through the machine.
Specialty Gas and Liquid Dryers: Some facilities generate gasses and liquids that are not common to typical manufacturing processes. For these situations, there are specialty gas dryers and specialty liquid dryers which the manufacturer designs specifically to safely remove these elements from the air.
Breathing Air Purifiers: High-quality air is of vital importance to industrial facilities, but nowhere is it as critical as in breathing air applications. The purity of breathing air is crucial to assure worker safety in a wide range of applications including tank cleaning, sand blasting, paint spray and many others.
Membrane Dryers: These are dehumidifying dryers that work by depressing the dew point of incoming air. They are popular since they can operate continuously without electricity and are quiet and low-maintenance. They are ideal for applications where the dew point requirement falls somewhere below +32°F and -40°F/C.
Deliquescent Dryers: These air dryers products in GA are very simple dryers that are popular among businesses that are seeking an electricity-free, low-maintenance solution to compressed air-drying issues. They are often used as natural gas or landfill gas dryers.

Like all electrical equipment, air compressors can develop faults and problems. It’s all too tempting to throw your existing equipment away or take it to a repairman but often the most common problems can be fixed by your own hand. Knowing what to look out for and how to resolve an issue is the best way to approach your Hydrovane compressor problems in GA.
Problems and Solutions
My air compressor won’t turn start.
It sounds really basic but ensure that all of the parts are connected properly, that it is connected to its power source and that you have pressed the ON switch. Oil-based machines need to have a minimum amount of oil in order to function. Adjust the pressure switches as well to see if that kick-starts anything and if you’re still having problems, consult a repair service.
My air compressor is causing too much noise.
If your compressor isn’t normally loud, you may need to check that there is enough oil to supply the proper lubrication, which will reduce noise. Make sure that all parts are tightened and that everything is in working order. Consider investing in a low-noise machine or one with vibration absorbers if the noise is too much of a problem.
My air compressor is using too much oil.
This could be caused by a number of factors, such as leaks or obstructed air filters.
Make sure that you regularly clean your air compressor as airways can get obstructed. If you suspect a leak, take it to a repairman or you could be faced with serious problems such as fire and explosions.
The air compressor’s air pressure is building too slowly.
Again, these Hydrovane compressor problems in GA could be caused by dirty filters and airways, causing the pressure buildup to slow. It may also be possible that parts have started to loosen and they need to be tightened.
The air compressor stops unexpectedly.
If your air compressor stops suddenly, it could be due to an electrical fault such as a blown fuse or it could be a general fault with the machine. Problems with the electrics should always be seen by an expert. Never attempt to solve these Hydrovane compressor problems in GA yourself as you could cause further damage or void the warranty.
My air compressor is overheated.
There could be a number of reasons for this type of Hydrovane compressor problems in GA. Excessive use, not waiting for the machine to cool down, lack of oil or lubrication and overworking the air compressor by blowing too much air into tools can all contribute to overheating.
Follow the instructions provided with your compressor to ensure you take all precautions to minimize overheating and also ensure that you take your air compressor for regular maintenance to make sure that everything is in working order.
