Blackmer® TXH3 cast-iron rotary vane pumps, part of the Iron Line of sliding vane pumps, have been designed for use on tank trucks and transports that handle a wide range of clean, non-abrasive and non-corrosive fluids that are compatible with cast iron.
TXH3 pumps are designed with horizontal parallel porting that can offer installers easier piping connections than pumps with 90° ported pumps. TXH3 pumps are also installed using mounting feet rather than brackets. Other features of the TXH3 models are a large diameter shaft with low-friction, grease-lubricated ball bearings for smooth and quiet operation. Cartridge-type mechanical seals provide reliable service while preventing external leakage. The double-ended shaft allows for either clockwise or counter-clockwise rotation. Internal safety relief valves are standard with an optional piston air valve for trucks with automatic pressure-control systems also available.
