Neptune has redesigned its line of Abaque Series Peristaltic (Hose) Pumps to incorporate a wide variety of robust design enhancements. Replacing the ABN line, these Heavy-Duty Neptune (HDN) pumps feature a new hose connection system that has an improved clamping system with fewer parts to simplify hose replacement, a redesigned pump rotor to decrease weight and increase strength, and a new oval viewing window that allows shoe adjustment without removing the cover.
Neptune, part of PSG, has added new models to its Abaque Series Peristaltic (Hose) Pumps for the North American market. Featuring a new look of orange and black, these new Abaque models incorporate a stronger and more durable rotor design and an innovative hose holding system.
The Neptune Series 500 pumps feature a variable oil bypass stroke adjustment that allows for better valve performance than traditional variable-linkage designs. This allows the valve checks to have extra time to seat even in heavy liquids since they are idle during the bypass portion of the suction and discharge strokes. Other features of the Series 500 pumps include the ability to be adjustable from 10 to 100 percent of capacity via micrometer dial and EZE-CLEAN valve cartridges that can be removed for cleaning without disturbing the piping to the pump. The pumps have capabilities to 80 gph (302 lph) simplex and 160 gph (605 lph) duplex at pressures up to 3,000 psi (210 kg/cm).
Neptune Chemical Pump Co., Inc. is planning to display its full product line at WEFTEC, including: Series 7000 Pumps – The Neptune Series 7000 “dia-PUMP” is a mechanically actuated diaphragm metering pump designed for water, wastewater and process applications. The mechanical design eliminates the use of contour plates on the liquid side of the diaphragm.
