SGL 2-4 Inch Sliding Vane Pumps Ductile-Iron Pump for Liquefied Gas Transfer Applications

Blackmer® SGL pumps, which are part of the Cavitation Line of sliding vane pumps, are designed for the liquid transfer or recirculation of refrigerants and other liquefied gasses. Constructed of shock-resistant ductile iron and available with a wide variety of seal materials, SGL pumps are ideally suited for almost any liquefied gas application.

The sliding vane, positive displacement design provides excellent priming capability and high performance over a wide range of temperatures and differential pressures. The vanes self-adjust as they wear, maintaining the efficiency of a new pump. The vanes, liner and end discs are all easily replaced, bringing the pump back to like new condition. In addition, SGL pumps feature a cavitation suppression liner designed for reducing the noise, vibration, and wear normally caused by entrained vapors.

SGL pumps are available in 2-, 3- and 4-inch sizes. Available options include a double mechanical seal.

Features and Benefits

  • Cavitation suppression liner design for reducing the noise, vibration, and wear normally caused by entrained vapors
  • Replaceable casing, liners and end discs allow easy rebuilding of the pumping chamber to like-new condition
  • Mechanical seal and elastomer options assure compatibility with refrigerants and other specialty gases
  • Available in 2-, 3- and 4-inch sizes
  • Ductile-iron construction with internal relief valve
  • Blackmer mechanical seal and ball bearing construction provide maximum reliability
  • Symmetrical bearing support assures even loading and wear for long life.
  • Adjustable relief valve protects pump against excessive pressures
  • Optional double mechanical seal
  • Advantages of sliding vane technology:
    • Unique sliding-vane pump design self-adjusts for wear to maintain flow rates
    • Excellent self-priming and dry-run capabilities
    • Sliding vane design provides sustained performance and trouble-free operation
    • Easy maintenance: vanes can be easily replaced without removing the pump from the piping system
    • High suction lift and line-stripping capabilities
    • Low maintenance and low life-cycle costs
