Viking LVP Stainless Steel Vane Pump
Rotary vane pumps are used for liquid transfer in applications ranging from chemicals to LP gas. Vanes extend from slots on the rotor, sweeping liquid through a camshaped cavity. They offer the benefit of very low slip and high mechanical efficiency. Viking’s LVP series of stainless steel vane pumps is an industrial design which provides smooth flow at pressures higher than typically seen in a vane pump. It is offered in 3 frame sizes that include 6 capacities, all rated to 200 PSI/14 Bar differential pressure. The design is standard with hardened casing, PEEK® vanes and push rods that work together to maximize pump life. A hard chrome-oxide coated shaft runs in silicon carbide bushings that further reduce maintenance and life cycle costs. When maintenance is required, installation of repair parts is a simple process. Vanes, push rods, mechanical seals and bushings are all readily accessible for easy replacement.
The LVP series is designed for thin, corrosive industrial liquids, flammable liquids which require corrosion protection and applications where pressures or vacuum requirements exceed other pumps’ capabilities.
