Viking Rotary Vane Pumps in GA: Features, Benefits, and Applications
Viking rotary vane pumps in GA are used for liquid transfer in applications ranging from LP gas to chemicals. The vanes on the pumps spread from slots on the rotor, that move liquid through a cam-shaped opening and provide high mechanical efficiency and very low slip. The series is designed to provide smooth flow at pressures higher than normally seen in a vane pump.
When maintenance is required, installation of repair parts is easy. Pushrods, mechanical seals, bushings, and vanes are all readily accessible for easy replacement.
Typical Applications for Viking Rotary Vane Pumps in GA
The LVP series is intended for corrosive, thin industrial liquids, applications where pressures or vacuum requirements exceed other pumps’ capabilities and combustible liquids which require corrosion protection.
Typical applications include:
- Vacuum vessel service
- Alkalis and acids
- Discharge or long suction line applications
- Aqueous Solutions
- Refined Fuels
- Solvents and alcohols
- Pentane, Hexane
- Reactor vessel ingredient metering
Features And Benefits Of Viking Rotary Vane Pumps in GA
- Pump design provides superior volumetric efficiency and vacuum capability.
- Two-directional pumping design removes the cost of a second pump, valving and piping that is required for line stripping or loading/ unloading.
- Combination of Hardened 316 stainless-steel casing, PEEK® vanes and pushrods provides broad chemical compatibility and boosts application flexibility.
- High-efficiency pump with short-term dry-run-capabilities and self-priming that handles entrained gases.
- Pressure capabilities to 14 Bar even on the thinnest liquids.
- LVP series’ vane replacement is a 20-minute service item reduces scheduled downtime.
- Improved design with fewer parts reduces maintenance and provides better parts availability.
- Raised-face flange ports, one-piece casing and bracket, and elastomeric O-ring seals provide improved sealing reliability. Reduces downtime and cleanup while minimizing chemical exposure.
- Interchangeable discs may be reversed instead of replaced when worn. This doubles the useful life of parts, for reduced life-cycle cost.
- Tailor-made sealing solutions are available for virtually every liquid and application.
- 62 Rockwell C surfaced-hardened stainless-steel casing.
- Hard silicon sleeve bearing is standard. This extends pressure capability, lowers life-cycle costs and minimizes wear.
- Hard chrome oxide coated shaft which contributes to industry-leading pressure capabilities.
- Gauge ports standard for easy application of transducers or gauges. This simplifies installation of remote or local monitoring systems.
- Top-mounted, adjustable pressure relief valve standard.
- Rotatable casing with motor mount option on two smallest models allows horizontal or vertical porting for easier installation.
- ANSI or DIN standard.
