Wilden’s Hornet pump causes a buzz
03 June 2009
There’s a new buzz to AxFlow UK’s Wilden pump range with the introduction of the compact air-operated Hornet pump. Measuring just 104mm x 173mm x 97mm, the Wilden Hornet packs a big punch for a small pump providing a flowrate of 20.8lt/min and a maximum pressure of 8.6bar. Equally as impressive is its suction lift capability, offering 3.3m Dry and 9.3m Wet.
Available in 10mm and 13mm sizes, the Hornet is a polypropylene pump featuring a Santoprene Wil-Flex diaphragm. Driven by the proven German Almatec air distribution system means that the Hornet can be run on compressed air, CO2 or NO2. Installation is extremely simple as the pump comes with quick connect/disconnect piping and maintenance is assisted by the inclusion of an air shutoff design.
The pump’s versatility, performance and almost silent running will be welcomed by the OEM sector. The employment of spring-loaded valves means that it is suitable for multiple mounting positions and configurations. According to AxFlow UK, the Hornet is perfectly suited to applications where there is need for the simple and reliable addition of non-demanding chemicals or the dispensing of liquids.
“The Wilden Hornet has already shown that it can outperform its original specification and it is a highly robust and versatile pump,” comments AxFlow’s Wilden Product Manager Peter Carfrae, ”Significantly for AxFlow UK the hornet gives us the ability to enter the lucrative OEM sector quarter-inch pump market. Until now the Wilden pumps that we offer have had to compete against smaller and more economical units. The introduction of the Hornet sets new standards in this market and represents a new challenge to the existing order. “
