Blackmer develops GNX Series sliding vane pumps

07 December 2017

Blackmer, part of PSG, a Dover company, has announced that the design and operation of its new GNX Series sliding vane pumps help solve many of the shaft-misalignment challenges faced by chemical manufacturers.

Blackmer developed the GNX Series sliding vane pumps, which the company claims are the industry’s first alignment-free, reduced-speed pumps for use in both portable and stationary applications. 

The design of the Blackmer GNX Series pump aims to eliminate the couplings between the gearbox and the pump and motor by rigidly connecting them in alignment with a C-face (or similar) motor on both the high-speed and low-speed sides of the pump.
