Mouvex, prominent in Europe as a maker of positive-displacement pumps and screw compressors for the transfer of liquids or dry-bulk products, has introduced its CC20 Eccentric Disc truck transport pumps to the Canadian market. It was developed as a vehicle-mounted pump for loading and unloading trucks and trailers but it can also be used as a ground-based pumping unit.
Mouvex CC20 pumps incorporate eccentric-disc pump technology that consists of a stationary cylinder and disc mounted to an eccentric shaft. As the shaft is rotated, the disc forms chambers within the cylinder, which increase at the suction port and decrease at the discharge port. During operation, the discharge pressure exerts itself against the eccentric disc, preventing it from slipping. This low slip between the disc and cylinder gives the CC20 eccentric disc pumps tremendous self-priming and line stripping capabilities, the company explains.
CC20 pumps are also said to be compact, providing reduced weight and easy installation. They're available in cast iron, with optional bronze pistons and stainless-steel shafts, and have built-in relief valves to protect the pump from overpressure situations. Special CC20 models are available for solvents and waste oil/lubricants applications.
The CC20 is available with flow rates up to 158 gpm (35 m3/h) with pump speeds up to 750 rpm maximum. Optional features include drain plugs, direct drive through PTO driveshaft or hydraulic motor drive.
Mouvex CC20 pumps are said to be ideal for waste oils; chemical applications that involve the transfer of soda, silicates, emulsions, inks, adhesives and resins; petrochemical applications that require the handling of solvents, fuels, crude oil, paraffin, gas oils and asphalt; and lubricants, molasses, oils and clean water.
Mouvex is represented by in Canada by Danco Equipment.
