Features

The V Series Asphalt Pump innovative design includes a wide variety of new and standard-setting features that have established a series of industry firsts within the asphalt market.

Industry’s Largest Jacketed Surface Area

The V Series Internal Gear Asphalt Pumps feature up to 35% more jacket surface area than the competition, which improves system reliability by incorporating the following features:

  • The unique ability to utilize the jacketed head and pressure relief valve (PRV) simultaneously
  • Jacketing located behind the pump rotor, which removes a known cold spot that can result in hard startups and premature pump and seal failures
  • The industry’s largest jacketed surface area on the pump case and PRV that enables uniform heating whether using steam or hot oil

v-series_direct-replacement

First Direct Replacement for Viking® 34 Series Pump & Parts

First drop-in replacement for the Viking® 34 Series asphalt pump. Replacing an existing Viking gear pump usually requires no modification to the piping, driver, baseplate or coupling, while also keeping flow rates unchanged. V Series components are also part-for-part interchangeable with the Viking 34 Series asphalt pump and offer very specific design enhancements to improve reliability. See our Cross Reference Guide.
