Cat Pumps (UK) launches enhanced performance, high-pressure triplex plunger pump
29 April 2010
Featuring a duplex stainless steel discharge manifold for extra durability, the new 6801 triplex plunger pump from Cat Pumps has the ability to deliver fluids at pressures of up to 480bar and flows of up to 57litre/m. The 6801 'Standard' models employ Cat Pumps’ proven design of low-pressure seals and high-pressure Vee-packings, which are completely lubricated and cooled by the pumped liquid. The flushed ‘K’ models utilise a special ported inlet manifold that accommodates an external flush liquid for cooling and lubrication when pumping high temperature or low lubricity liquids. This option also provides a barrier fluid to enhance safety and to monitor seal performance, especially when pumping harmful liquids.
The 6801 pump falls into Cat Pumps’ range of triplex plunger positive displacement pumps suitable for testing and system flushing applications. This type of pump delivers a low pulsation, consistent high pressure liquid flow that can be used for hydrostatic pressure testing and instrument-line flushing applications. Outside of the hydrostatic testing sector, Cat Pumps report that the new 6801 is suitable for other applications, including chemical injection and surface preparation, as it gives the low pulsation performance that these demanding applications require.
