A Better, Faster Way to Source Pumps

Blackmer updates sliding vane pumps with electric heating

Pump manufacturer Blackmer recently added optional electric heating to the 4-inch model of its NP Series sliding vane pumps.

The heating can be used in the place of jacketed heads to provide pump heating for applications that usually require jackets, such as handling bitumen, molasses, lube oils, and asphalt, the company announce in a news release.

Blackmer will continue to offer jacketed heads for customers who need NP pumps with steam and hot-oil capabilities. The NP Series pumps are designed to offer maximum versatility for handling a wide variety of clean, non-corrosive liquids, including fluids of differing viscosities and temperatures.

These pumps have been designed to minimize sheer and agitation while providing excellent self-priming and dry run capabilities. Blackmer is a leading pump manufacturer of positive displacement pumps and reciprocating compressor technologies. The company is part of the Dover Pump Solutions Group.
