LVP Series Vane Pumps
- Features & Benefits
- Other Info
These positive displacement pumps give smooth, accurate flows and have hardened components to extend pump life. Available in 316 stainless steel, Viking vane pumps are self priming and can run dry for short periods, allowing process upsets without pump damage. Viking vane pumps are the first choice for pumping thin liquids at high pressures.
- Advanced Durability Viking's LVP series vane pump sets the benchmark for durability with its standard, stainless steel casing surface-hardened to 62 Rockwell C maximizing casing and vane life. Its hard chrome oxide coated shaft turns in a hard silicon carbide sleeve bearing, providing industry leading pressure capabilities to 14 bar. The LVP pump's self-adjusting, PEEK plastic vanes and push rods provide superior vacuum capabilities.
- Ease of Installation Pump installation has never been easier. The LVP series' DIN or ANSI standard porting simplifies connection to local standard systems, and eliminates adapter leak points. To protect the pump from over pressure, a top mounted, adjustable pressure relief valve is standard. For those applications utilizing local or remote monitoring systems, Viking's LVP series provides standard gauge ports. A rotatable casing with motor mount option, on two smallest models, permits vertical or horizontal porting. With motor speed operation up to 23 m3/hr @ 50Hz, Viking has eliminated a speed reducer and one shaft alignment, a coupling and guard to simplify installation, reducing system costs.
- Application Flexibility Viking's LVP series' delivers broad chemical compatibility with its advanced durability features and higher pressure capabilities (14 bar), on even the thinnest liquids, enabling the pump to be an ideal fit for multiple liquids and applications. Its self-priming, short-term dry-run-capability and bi-directional pumping design is ideal for loading/unloading, or line stripping operations. The LVP series delivers non-pulsing, low shear flow with superior vacuum capability and volumetric efficiency to deliver the same capacity on thin liquids as a stainless steel gear or screw pump, using less energy.
- Lower cost of Ownership The LVP series' easy to pipe, straight through porting design with raised face IEC or NEMA flanges, elastomeric o-ring seals on the head, relief valve, and seal gland provide superior sealing reliability. The LVP series is also built with fewer parts, minimizing maintenance. Commonality of this series' parts reduces overall parts inventory. For example, the interchangeable discs on the front and back side of the rotor can be reversed for twice the life. In 20 minutes, a vane replacement service can be completed without removing the pump from its system, reducing maintenance time and life cycle costs. Designed for use with more than 200 thin liquids, the LVP series has tailored sealing solutions available for virtually every liquid and application to minimize leaks, for a lower total cost of ownership.
