Vickers VMQ Series Vane Pump Applications
The VMQ series of pumps are available in a variety of configurations, including single-stage, two-stage, and three-stage designs. These pumps are commonly used for large-scale commercial, industrial and municipal applications. The VMQ Series can also be used in residential applications where lower flow rates are required. The VMQ Series is versatile enough to be used as a booster pump, wet end pump or process pump.
The Vickers VMQ Series Vane Pump are typically used in a broad range of mobile and industrial applications.
The VMQ Series is available with a variety of different pump types and sizes, including Vane, Recirculating, Fluid Displacement, Gear and Rotary.
The pump designs feature a cast iron body with integral volute casing, high tensile steel screws and shafts with special threads for OEM applications. The pumps are also suitable for harsh environments due to their high durability and resistance to wear.
The VMQ Series is equipped with an externally mounted discharge valve assembly that allows for easy maintenance access without disassembly of the pump itself.
In addition, the pumps are available in both open circuit and closed circuit configurations which allow them to be used in combined circuits or as stand-alone units.
This series of pumps features a variety of mounting options, along with the ability to withstand overhung (thrust) loads up to 400 lbs.
The Vickers VMQ Series of positive displacement pumps are heavy-duty centrifugal pumps designed for pumping highly abrasive fluids. They have been used in mining, quarrying and pulp and paper applications.
The Vickers VMQ Series Vane Pump is available in a range of sizes from 1/2″ to 12″ (DN 15 to 300 mm). The unit can be mounted horizontally or vertically, slanted or inverted. It has two sets of vanes for added strength and durability.
These two-stage pumps are typically used for high pressure, open center circuits that are found in medium-pressure power units and equipment.
A Vickers VMQ Series Vane Pump consists of a rotating shaft with blades attached to it. These blades rotate inside a housing that contains the working fluid. The blades and housing move together in a single direction (single stage). The rotating shaft is connected to an internal rotor. The rotor is connected to the output shaft. When power is applied, the motor turns the shaft which causes the fluid to flow through it.
The main component of these pumps is the impeller. It consists of a rotor that rotates inside an outer casing called an annulus. The purpose of this design is to increase pressure while reducing back pressure on the system using low horsepower motors.
This series of fixed displacement vane pumps is designed for medium and high-flow industrial circuits that call for high output pressure.
The VMQ pump is available with six different impeller sizes ranging from 2.5 to 9 inches in diameter, providing a maximum operating pressure of up to 1680 psi (120 bar). It can be used in applications requiring a single-stage pump or multistage configurations when combined with other Vickers products.
The VMQ Series features Vickers’ patented rotary lobe design, which delivers exceptional performance at low speeds and reduces vibration by eliminating the need for an external coupling.
The VMQ pumps are compact and lightweight with stainless steel housings and shafts for corrosion resistance. They also feature an epoxy coated shaft for additional chemical resistance. The pumps are available with either SAE J1401 or ISO 11088 flanges depending on the application requirements.
Because there is no load sensing, these pumps are suitable for working with constant pump input drives that operate at constant speeds.
Because there is no load sensing, these pumps are suitable for working with constant pump input drives that operate at constant speeds. The VMQ pumps feature a compact design with high resolution, high flow, and high pressure capabilities in a single compact package. The VMQ pumps can be used in many different applications including lab-scale and pilot plant chemical processes, water treatment systems, chemical processing plants and other general industrial applications where precise control of flow rate is required.
The VMQ series of vane pumps consist of a pump housing with an integral rotary shaft seal and a rotor assembly. The rotor assembly consists of an outer vane ring assembly, an inner vane ring assembly, a drive shaft assembly, an end plate and an end plate gasket. Each rotor assembly is designed for specific application requirements for specific flow rates at specific pressures.
The Vickers VMQ Series single vane pumps were designed specifically for applications that require high-pressure performance.
The Vickers VMQ Series single vane pumps were designed specifically for applications that require high-pressure performance. The pumps are used in a wide variety of applications including the chemical, food and beverage industries. They are also ideal for use in wastewater treatment plants and other municipal applications where pressure requirements exceed those of standard centrifugal pumps.
The VMQ Series has a single-stage design with a helical rotor and four vanes per rotor blade. The helical blades ensure smooth flow while maintaining high pressure capability. The pump is available in standard sizes ranging from 1/2 inch through 24 inches, as well as custom sizes up to 48 inches (1 meter). Other options include:
Permanent Magnet Motor – This option provides increased efficiency by eliminating cogging and voltage drop losses common with conventional motors, increasing the pump’s overall efficiency by up to 10 percent.
High Temperature Operation – This option allows for operation at temperatures up to 200°F (93°C) without compromising performance or reliability.
Vickers VMQ Series Pump have a sturdy design that allows them to withstand heavy loads.
These single vane pumps have a sturdy design that allows them to withstand heavy loads. They are used in the chemical and petrochemical industries, as well as in food and beverage plants. These pumps can also be used for the transfer of non-contaminating liquids and slurries.
The VMQ series is designed to handle viscous fluids such as diesel fuel, crude oil, gasoline, vegetable oils, solvents and hydraulic fluids, as well as other viscous liquids with low viscosity. These pumps are available in sizes ranging from 0.5 to 5 horsepower (0.37 to 3.7 kW).
The Vickers VMQ Series Vane Pump was specifically developed for use in a broad range of demanding and diverse applications. The pump has an almost universal operating range, and is available to replace both open circuit hydraulic motors and mechanical pumps. The range of materials is designed to meet virtually any chemical, electrical and thermal application requirements. There is a wide array of mounting options and accessories, which allow the pumps to adapt to practically all equipment designs. Applications, which require no operator intervention include: pumping liquids, slurries or vapors under pressure while on automatic or remote sensing control; and also wet or dry vacuum pumping.
