OBL plunger and diaphragm metering pumps introduced by AxFlow

Posted: Thursday 14th February 2013

AxFlow has announced that it is to start distributing the OBL range of metering pumps from January 2013. The OBL range consists of spring and full motion, positive return mechanisms, with wet ends available in plunger, mechanical diaphragm, single and double hydraulic diaphragm designs.

The OBL family of metering pumps provides solutions for a comprehensive range of applications, from low flow, low pressure and low temperature duties for mild or non-aggressive media through to high flow, high pressure, high viscosity and high temperature duties for the most challenging media. The hydraulic diaphragm, mechanical diaphragm and plunger pumps are available in both spring and positive return mechanisms. The plunger range is made up of one positive return and five spring return models. The mechanical double diaphragm range comprises three spring return and two plunger models, and the hydraulic double diaphragm range comprises one spring return and three positive return models. All three categories offer end users both ATEX and API 675 options, with all pumps suitable for both single and multiple head arrangements

Typical areas of application include water treatment, oil and gas, chemical processing, power generation, petrochemicals, paper and pulp, paints, coatings and emulsions and take into account the requirements for metering accuracy and repeatability expected within these industries. The quality of design and build is of the highest order, as is to be expected from an IDEX Corporation manufacturer, with casings manufactured from cast iron and aluminium and pumps heads available in SS316L, PVC, PVDF and PTFE. Special constructions with exotic materials are also available on demand.

“The introduction of the OBL pumps range into the AxFlow portfolio provides AxFlow the resources to build upon its market share in the area of metering pumps represented under the IDEX brand,” says AxFlow managing director Tony Peters. “The OBL range sits between the Pulsafeeder standard products and engineered products business sectors, thereby meeting the requirements of a great many industry sectors where plunger and diaphragm metering pumps can provide a cost-effective and efficient solution.”
