New Maxflo WSE Impeller from Chemineer Provides Maximum Pumping Action with Reduced Maintenance for Demanding Applications
Dayton, Ohio, USA February 24, 2004 - Chemineer, Inc., a unit of Robbins & Myers, Inc. announces the introduction of the latest impeller technology advancement, the Maxflo WSE impeller. The result of over four decades of impeller development experience, this new side-entering impeller utilizes an advanced, high-efficiency hydrofoil design for maximum pumping action in demanding applications in industries such as pulp and paper, flue gas desulpherization (FGD), and petroleum blending and storage. The effective, hydrodynamic design of the Maxflo WSE impeller also makes it more cavitation resistant.
Maxflo WSE impellers feature a bolted blade design that optimizes ease of maintenance, and are constructed from highly corrosion-resistant 316 Stainless Steel, 317L Stainless Steel, Hastelloy C276, or Titanium (with other alloys available as needed for special applications). The impeller design results in lower tip speeds, which reduces wear and extends service life, contributing to low total cost of ownership. While the standard model features four impeller blades, a six bladed design is also available for shock-loaded applications. Maxflo WSE impellers are used on the Prochem® PB Series and MD Series side-entering agitators.
