Wanner Engineering announces an upgrade to its Hydra-Cell D10 Series seal-less pumps. Previously rated at 1000 psi (69 bar) maximum discharge pressure, the Hydra-Cell D10 models with metallic pump heads can now operate at up to 1500 psi (103 bar) discharge pressure. Used for a wide range of processing applications and in manufacturing plants, Hydra-Cell D10 models have a flow capacity of 4.26 gpm (15.1 l/min) with a motor speed of 790 rpm when performing at the higher pressure rating.
Wanner Engineering says that the seal-less design of Hydra-Cell D10 pumps means that there are no mechanical seals, cups, or packing to leak, wear, or replace. Spring-loaded, horizontal disk check valves and the seal-less design enable model D10 pumps to handle viscous fluids and abrasive particulates up to 500 microns in size. The D10 also features Wanner Engineering’s patented Kel-Cell technology so that in the event of a closed or clogged inlet condition, the D10 will run dry indefinitely without damage to the pump.
