ITT Goulds' Model NM 3196 non-metallic process pump operates up to 20% more efficiently
The ITT Goulds Model NM 3196 is an ANSI chemical process pump that gives customers an alternative to expensive metal-alloy pumps for processes involving corrosive fluids. Constructed of fiberglass-reinforced plastic, the NM 3196 pump is up to 20% more efficient than competing metal pumps.
The Model NM 3196 features i-Frame power ends, which reduce downtime and lower life-cycle costs. The central feature of this power frame is the i-Alert on-board condition monitor, which automatically monitors temperature and vibration, warning users with a flashing LED display if either are exceeding normal parameters. The visual alert makes it easy to spot potential trouble before it occurs.
In addition to standard on-board condition monitoring, benefits of the Model NM 3196 include:
- A volute design that is molded to make the internal casing passageways hydraulically smoother
- Long-term energy savings by maintaining the original efficiency through external adjustments
- Sealing flexibility with a range of sealing arrangements available to meet specific service requirements
- Heavy-duty shaft and bearings designed for minimum deflection and 10-year average life under tough operating conditions
The ITT Goulds Pumps Model NM 3196 can operate at up to 195°F, and withstand vibrations up to 100% over the baseline level. The NM 3196 with i-Frame is available in 13 hydraulic sizes, with capacities to 1400 GPM (318 m3/h) and heads to 500 feet (152 m).
The impeller, seal chamber and mounting system of the 3196 are designed to maximize pump efficiency and minimize maintenance costs over the life of the pump.
