Expanded EnviroGear G Series Trounces Liquid-Transfer Pump Ills

Screen Shot 2016-07-05 at 10.29.06 AM
Grand Terrace, CA-based EnviroGear Pump (part of PSG, a Dover company) PSG Group, has announced the release of  G Series models G1-82, G1-133 and G1-222 (3-in, 4-in., and 6-in.) metal-sealed internal gear pumps.

Well suited, according to the manufacturer, for the most challenging and demanding transfer applications (thin and viscous fluids), the G Series lineup is available in cast iron, carbon steel, and stainless steel models. Delivering flow rates up to 500 gpm, they’re offered with both packing and mechanical seal options, and can be used for a wide range of application types, i.e. chemicals, adhesives, paints, coatings, food & beverage, and heat transfer, among others,

Features and Capabilities
G Series pumps provide positive, non-pulsating flow, and can operate equally in both directions. Features include enlarged bearing housings at the backside of the units that allow for convenient drive-end access to the shaft seal and single-point end-clearance adjustment.

EnviroGear notes that members of its G Series family are interchangeable with up to 95% of existing internal gear pumps on the market, with no modifications to piping, driver, coupling, or baseplate required. The pump casing can be easily rotated for multiple liquid porting positions, making for simple installation in existing applications.

Simalube IMPULSE Pressure Booster Overcomes Long-Lubrication-Line Challenges and More

Screen Shot 2016-03-08 at 7.30.22 PMsimatec Inc. (Charlotte, NC) refers to its recently launched simalube IMPULSE pressure booster (up to 145 psi) as “the perfect complement” to its 60-, 125-, and 250-ml simalube lubricators. An addition to the company’s portfolio of smart technologies, simalube IMPULSE is well suited for high-counterpressure applications and systems with long lubrication lines (up to 4 meters, or approximately 13 feet, in length.). The unit’s compact size allows installation in the smallest of spaces, in all positions, even underwater. As an IP68 protection class device, it’s dustproof, waterproof, and appropriate for use in a wide range of industries.

Screen Shot 2016-03-08 at 6.48.16 PMHow It Works
According to the manufacturer, users simply affix the simalube IMPULSE to the selected lubrication point, screw on the required simalube lubricator and activate the unit for the desired dispensing time. The device starts operating as soon as a battery pack is inserted and the lubricator is attached. Continuous lubrication impulses of 0.5 ml supply the lubrication point with oil or grease up to NLGI 2 at a pressure of up to 10 bar. This action is gentle on the lubricant, as only the dosing volume is placed under pressure.

This simalube IMPULSE also continually signals its operating state. When the unit is properly installed, an LED indicator flashes green at regular intervals. Red flashes indicate overpressure, inactive, and empty conditions. Although dispensing intervals set by the lubricator may change, this intelligent pressure-boosting device will automatically adjust.

Maintainability and Service Life
During lubricator change-outs, the simalube IMPULSE stays firmly affixed to the lubrication point. The connection point remains sealed throughout the process, and no lubricant back-flow occurs. Equipped with a fresh battery pack after each lubricator change-out, the pressure-booster can be used multiple times (for 10 simalube 125 ml dispensing cycles or for up to three years).
