Press Release Summary:
PurgeXÂ® adjustable, air-operated pump with 1/8 in. piston completely purges all entrained air and impurities with each stroke. Maximum output is .00012 cu in./.00066 oz. Each clockwise turn of integral calibration ring reduces output by .00026 cu in./.00014 oz. High output pressures can be achieved due to 25:1 ratio from air inlet to liquid outlet. Pressures of 3000 psi output can be achieved with 120 psi air. Pump is aluminum with brass, steel, and SS components.
Original Press Release:
NEW Ultra-Micro Output PurgeX® Adjustable Air Operated, with 1/8" Piston
Oil-Rite Corporation of Manitowoc, Wisconsin has designed a NEW air operated injector pump that features ultra-micro output. Engineered and precision manufactured in the USA. To meet the demands of industries we serve, the patented 1/8" version will help preserve our oil supplies, dispense high cost synthetic lubricants more efficiently and aid in pollution prevention. Along with this simplistic design, the PurgeX® method completely purges all entrained air and impurities with each stroke. No priming is necessary, even at the smallest flow setting. PurgeX® is self-priming!
Extremely dependable in performance, PurgeX® with ultra micro output can be used with a wide range of liquids or chemicals that demand critical flow control. It can be used for dispensing precise quantities of liquid for food additives, applying adhesives in production, inks, dyes, special lubricants for oven conveyors, etc. Industries such as Food, Medical, Printing, Chemical, Agricultural, Plastic, Marine, Industrial Machinery, Packaging and Conveyors are only a few which will greatly benefit by utilizing PurgeX® 1/8" injector pump.
Operation is simple. Liquid is supplied from a reservoir to the PurgeX® injector pump. Reservoir location is not critical since each PurgeX® pump is a self-contained injector that can operate in any orientation. With ultra-fine adjustability, the single piece 1/8" piston allows precise metering of very small volumes of liquid, maximum output is .00012 cubic inches/.00066 ounces. Each clockwise turn of the integral calibration ring reduces output by .00026 cubic inches/.00014 ounces. High output pressures can be achieved due to a 25 to 1 ratio from air inlet to liquid outlet. Pressures of 3000 PSI output can be achieved with 120 PSI air. The minimum air pressure required is 40 PSI. Prefilled systems, including reservoir, along with "preset (output) injectors" are available.
Only high quality materials are used, and all units are designed to provide trouble-free service under the most severe operating conditions. The PurgeX® injector pump will withstand adverse conditions since it is constructed of lightweight aluminum with brass, steel, and stainless steel components. Buna N and Viton®¹ seals are used for positive sealing, other materials are available.
Oil-Rite's PurgeX® injector pumps with ultra-micro output will be a welcome to all industries. It has achieved over 360+ million cycles and provides the ultimate in liquid adjustability and output accuracy.
