Michael Smith Engineers is introducing the Zenith high-performance external gear pumps that deliver virtually pulseless flows and are suitable for pumping high-viscosity fluids at higher temperatures and pressures. Zenith pumps are designed to provide a precise, pulseless and repeatable performance in industrial metering applications and are particularly effective in plastics and rubber production processes including polyester, polypropylene, nylon, acrylic, spandex and many other speciality materials.
They are manufactured using state-of-the-art production equipment to maintain very close tolerances and this, combined with precision machining on the pumps' components, means high volumetric efficiency, outstanding accuracy and extended service intervals.
The range includes models with capacities from 0.05cm3/rev up to 750cm3/rev with maximum differential pressures from 70bar for the B-9000 Series and up to 275bar for the HPB Series.
Typical applications include pumping abrasive fluids, corrosive and poor lubricating fluids occurring in polymer applications, hot-melt glue dispensing, spraying paints and coatings - or wherever there is a need to transfer high-viscosity fluids at high temperatures and pressures.
