Caprari introduces new PM pump series
Caprari’s new PM and PMX horizontal pumps’ series are built to withstand high pressures up to 100 bar and can be used in the water industry, reverse osmosis, in snow-making and marine applications.
The pumps are designed to be consistently durable, keeping the need to replace wearable parts to a minimum. Their robust structure is resistant to mechanical stress due to specially designed dimensions which allow for high performance and operational stability.
High efficiency at the Best Efficiency Point (BEP) is ensured by optimised geometry in the blade profiles of the impellers and diffusers, while the hydraulics are equipped with an axial thrust compensation system, further reducing wear. The sizes of the hydraulics cover a wide range of flow rates and are available in cast iron, stainless steel and duplex.
The PM series benefits from new size 65 hydraulic models and the H version PM_65 with 4 poles is the configuration which allows for use with superheated water at temperatures of up to 120°C – though it is necessary to carry out checks on the 2 poles depending on the conditions the pump will be used in. The materials selected here offer durability in such heavy-duty operating conditions.
