Blackmer®, part of PSG®, a Dover company and a global leader in positive displacement, regenerative turbine and centrifugal pump, and reciprocating compressor technologies, is pleased to announce the availability of its new GNX and GNXH Series Sliding Vane Pumps. The market’s only alignment free reduced speed positive displacement pumps, Blackmer GNX and GNXH Series pumps are designed to handle a wide range of non-corrosive, non-abrasive industrial liquids and petroleum products.
Manufactured with a larger operating range than competitive designs, Blackmer GNX and GNXH Series pumps offer higher flows and higher pressure.
