MXQ DISC PUMPS
Disc pumps are used for difficult pumping applications such as liquids with abrasives, solids, high viscosity, entrained gas or air.
They are also used to move shear sensitive liquids and to prevent emulsification. The mechanisms utilized to propel the fluids are mainly:
1. Centrifugal force
2. Friction in the form of boundary layer and viscous drag.
To pump an extremely shear sensitive liquid such as latex or even blood, we may utilize a two flat-plane DiscSet design sacrificing some efficiency in order to have more efficacy.
However, in most industrial applications, both efficacy and efficiency are desired. Therefore, the MXQ Disc Pump is offered with multiple Disc designs to increase both the efficiency and efficacy of the pump.
The SERRATED DISC design allows for more contact surface area than a typical disc perimeter and incorporates winglets holding the DiscSet together while accelerating the fluid through the system. The size, placement, and number of winglets vary according to the fluid being pumped.
We offer many DiscSet designs some of which are PATENTED OR HAVE A PATENT PENDING – Contact us for more info.
MXQ industrial disc pumps are specially designed to meet your niche requirements. Our disc pumps are abrasion and corrosion resistant. The company’s newly-designed disc pumps have a lower net positive suction head required (NPSHR) than most other disc pumps available in the market with an 5%–9% better efficiency. Our cutting edge technology offers close coupled pumps, which help reduce space allocation and save costs. Our disc pumps can withstand highly viscous fluids, trapped air, large solids, and slurries without blockages, obstruction, or cavitation. They are extremely versatile and durable, and require minimal to no repairs or spare parts replacement.
Disc pumps offer various advantages in hard-to-pump applications making them the future of pump technology. Some key features of these pumps are:
All these features reduce the overall cost and time in the long run.
Disc pumps are extremely versatile units. They have the appearance of centrifugal units, but can work like gear pumps, impellers, progressive cavity pumps, and chopper pumps. Here are some basic steps of their operation:
Disc pumps have applications across industries with varying requirements, especially processing hard-to-pump materials. They are commonly used in wastewater treatment by city-based municipal corporations. Here are a few important application areas:
Other general applications: Heat transfer, latex, cutting fluids, fertilizers, solid suspension, slurry mixtures, pulp & paper
Disc pumps are made of sturdy metals and their alloys. Some commonly used metals are:
