Original Press Release:
Wright Pump® Offers New Line of Positive Displacement Circumferential Piston Pumps
Wright Pump® introduces a complete line of positive displacement circumferential piston pumps for applications in the food, beverage, dairy, personal care, pharmaceutical, and biotech industries. The new series currently has capacities to 150 gpm and pressure capability up to 200 psi (14 bar), with more sizes expected soon. The pumps are dimensionally interchangeable with Waukesha® Universal I Series pumps and can be used as replacement pumps without any changes in piping, baseplates or other auxiliary equipment.
While the Wright pump is completely interchangeable with Waukesha Universal I Series pumps, its design includes additional standard features not found in the Universal I Series. For example, all pump models have four-way
mounting and the three smallest sizes (0060, 0150 and 0180) have a stainless steel gearcase. Other standard features include helical timing gears for higher torque carrying capacity and quieter operation; 17-4 PH stainless steel shafting; and polyester epoxy blend powder coating. To ensure the highest quality, Wright Pump operates its own foundry, pouring its own non-galling "808" stainless alloy, a material critical to the close-clearance operations required of circumferential piston pumps.
In addition to circumferential piston pumps, Wright Pump has been manufacturing high quality replacement parts for Waukesha Universal I and II Series pumps since 1996.
Wright Pump, a unit of IDEX Corporation, is dedicated to solving the pumping problems of food, beverage, biotech and pharmaceutical manufacturers worldwide.
