Sliding Vane Pumps

Blackmer pumps have revolutionized the pumping industry with their unique sliding vane technology. This revolutionary design allows the pumps to self-adjust for wear to help maintain flow rates. This sliding vane pump design creates excellent self-priming and dry-run capabilities, while also providing sustained performance and trouble-free operation. 

Blackmer sliding vane pumps have a number of vanes that are free to slide into or out of slots in the pump rotor. When the pump driver turns the rotor, centrifugal force, push rods, and/or pressurized fluid causes the vanes to move outward in their slots and bear against the inner bore of the pump casing forming pumping chambers.

As the rotor revolves, fluid flows into the area between the vanes (pumping cambers) when they pass the suction port. This fluid is transported around the pump casing until the discharge port is reached. At this point the fluid is squeezed out into the discharge piping.
