High-Quality, Efficient, and Reliable Vane Pumps
Vane Pumps consists of a circular rotor offset in a circular cavity. Each vane in the rotor is forced inward by the housing walls as it approaches the pump discharge hole. Once past the discharge, the vane is forced outward by centrifugal force, hydraulic pressure or push rods to press the vane against the housing, creating a tight seal so the vane can force liquid fluid through the pump.
Advantages of vane pumps include their ability to drive prime, self compensate for wear, handle liquids with vapors and gases, while providing smooth flow. They are available in sealed and magnetically driven sealless versions, along with numerous metallurgies. Vane pumps are used to move chemicals, solvents, fuels, bulk transfer of LPG, oils and even asphalt.
Anderson Process is proud to partner with longtime vane pump manufacturers who are leading the industry in positive displacement vane pump technology. Blackmer offers a large selection of positive displacement vane pumps for nearly any industrial process application.
