Apr. 18, 2017 – Blackmer says its GNX and GNXH series sliding vane pumps are now available, describing them as the market’s only alignment free reduced speed positive displacement pumps.

The pumps, Blackmer explains, are designed to handle a variety of non-corrosive, non-abrasive industrial liquids and petroleum products. Boasting a larger operating range than competitive designs, Blackmer GNX and GNXH Series pumps promise to offer higher flows and higher pressure. These pumps are available with a commercial-grade gear reducer with more operating speeds that allows for precise flow selections. GNX and GNXH Series pumps are self-priming, and the self-adjusting vanes help maintain this capability, says the company, adding that the pumps are currently available in 2- and 2.5-inch flanged port sizes. Larger 3- and 4-inch flanged port sizes will be released later this year. Typical applications for the pumps include fuel oils, lube oils, jet fuels, gasoline, edible oils and a variety of solvents and thinners.
