What benefits do sliding vane pumps provide over other pump types?
All Blackmer sliding vane pump lines are designed to conquer the most problematic challenges in the transfer of liquids of various viscosities. The unique self-adjusting vanes eliminate efficiency-robbing slip, helping the pump to maintain near-original volumetric output and consistency even after significant service. Other design benefits include seals and bearings designed for maximum life; a wide range of flow capacities; superior priming and suction capabilities that make them ideal for line stripping, complete evacuation of heels and superior lift; and easy maintenance that allows vanes to be replaced without removing the pump from the piping system. In addition, the exceptional suction/lift capabilities make sliding vane pumps ideal for top unloading of vessels.
