New range of external gear pumps from Michael Smith Engineers

Michael Smith Engineer’s Zenith range of gear pumps are designed to provide a precise and repeatable performance in industrial metering applications. The pumps are particularly effective in plastics and rubber production processes, including polyester, polypropylene, nylon, acrylic, spandex and many other speciality materials.

The Zenith range of gear pumps are manufactured to ensure very close tolerances, and this, combined with precision machining to the pump’s components, means highly volumetric efficiency, accuracy and extended service intervals. The range includes models which cover capacities from 0.05 cm³/revolution up to 750 cm³/revolution, with maximum differential pressures from 70 bar for the B-9000 series and up to 275 bar for the HPB series.

Applications for the Zenith range include pumping abrasive fluids, corrosive and poor lubricating fluids occurring in polymer applications, hot melt glue dispensing, spraying paints and coatings, or whenever there is a need to transfer high viscosity fluids at high temperatures and pressures.
