Viking 224AE Jacketed Universal Seal Pump: Key Aspects

The Viking 224AE Jacketed Universal Seal Pump is a versatile and robust option for diverse industrial applications. It excels in processes that involve varying fluid viscosities and temperatures. Below is an overview of its key aspects, structured for clarity and conciseness.

Broad Application Range The 224AE is designed for a wide array of applications. It efficiently handles fluids from thin to thick consistencies and operates under continuous duty at pressures up to 200 PSI (14 Bar). It can also manage higher pressures with high fluid viscosities at reduced speeds.

Operating Range This pump series, including 224A/AE, supports a flow range of 15 to 500 GPM (3 to 114 m³/h). Its operational temperature spans from -60 to +450°F (-50 to +230°C), suitable for various environments. The pump’s viscosity range extends from 28 to 2,000,000 SSU (0.1 to 440,000 cSt), demonstrating its adaptability.

Features and Benefits

  • Positive Displacement Internal Gear Pumping Principle: Maintains constant flow across different viscosities.
  • Axial Rotor Thrust Control: Uses double row ball bearings or tapered roller bearings, supported by bushings.
  • Rotatable Bearing Housing: Enables adjustment for rotor end clearance, accommodating wear or viscosity changes.
  • Material Versatility: Provides various material options for pump components.
  • Ease of Maintenance: Features an enlarged bearing housing for simple cartridge seal maintenance without disassembling the head and rotor/shaft.

Jacketing Feature The pump’s jacket controls the fluid temperature. This is essential for melting solids at ambient temperatures or for precise temperature control in manufacturing processes like polymers and epoxy resins.

Relief Valve Configurations The pump offers multiple relief valve options. These include a standard jacketed head with no relief valve and integral pressure relief valves in jacketed and non-jacketed forms for enhanced safety and control.

Porting and Sealing It provides various port configurations, suitable for different designs. The seal chamber is compatible with packing component seals or cartridge seals, including API plan 53 and 54 options.

Detailed Design Features The pump’s design includes a large diameter threaded bearing housing for easy seal removal. It also features double row ball bearings or tapered roller bearings for axial thrust control. A one-piece cast bracket ensures a rigid foundation, maximizing the lifespan of seals and bearings.
