Pumps, blowers

A.R. North America

The Annovi Reverberi RTP30.60 wet end triplex plunger pump from A.R. North America delivers up to 7.9 gpm and 8,700 psi. Designed to pump water as well as liquids of similar viscosity, features include hardened, heat-treated SST plungers with long-life coating and forged brass manifolds for better flow and no porosity. Other features include a triple-stage sealing system and newly designed valves.

Hibon

The VTB.XL series of air-injected, positive displacement blowers from Hibon, a division of Ingersoll Rand, provide 900 to 7,000 cfm with maximum vacuum greater than 28 inches Hg, achieved via an air injection system that allows cooling air to enter the blower at the exhaust. Cool air reduces the rate of thermal expansion of the lobes at higher vacuum to control the clearances between the lobes and housing. Location of the cooling air near the exhaust of the blower ensures the air will exit through the exhaust and not escape into the inlet. The design eliminates water cooling, heat exchangers, oil consumption and effluent. Other features include improved sealing and oil capacity for increased performance and lower maintenance. 888/704-4266; www.hibon.com

NLB Corp.

The 605 Series of waterjet pumps from NLB Corp. offers engines up to 600 hp. The triplex plunger pumps can be converted to any of eight operating pressures, from 4,000 psi to 40,000 psi.
