Albin Pump USA is a renowned manufacturer of innovative peristaltic and hose pump solutions, which have recently become available in Canada through York Fluid Controls. This includes Albin’s ALX series of high volume hose pumps, which offer all the benefits of the producer’s other peristaltic pumps, but with two major additional advantages: a far slower speed for a given flow rate, and rotating rollers for soft hose compression.
Little power loss from friction
These extra benefits not only extend hose life significantly; they also reduce power consumption. The soft-action rollers are a substitute for hard fixed shoes, rotating gently as they compress the hose and losing very little power from surface friction. Users can run these high volume hose pumps very slowly, displacing 90 litres per revolution, to deliver flow rates as high as 200 cubic metres per hour.
Albin recommends the ALX series for a wide range of applications, such as effluent processing, sea-tanker offloading, thickener underflow feed, fish-boat offloading, and transfer of mining waste, municipal waste, mud and sand slurry, and tailings. Other notable features and benefits include the following: no mechanical seals or stuffing boxes; reversible flow; damage-free continuous dry running; internal gearboxes for decreasing overall dimensions; full self-priming at up to 9.8 metres; outlet pressure of up to 7.5 bar; no lubricant; compatibility with NR and full EPDM hoses; and suitability for aggressive or viscous liquids.
The ALX series includes the groundbreaking ALX150, designed for applications in which quick, reliable offloading is required to process profitability. The result of years of development, the ALX150 is particularly recommended for sea-tanker overloading, high-solids thickener underflow slurry transfer, and many similar applications. These high volume hose pumps can handle a larger flow than any other peristaltic pump can in the world.
Albin manufactures two other series of peristaltic hose pumps available from York Fluid Controls, ALH and ALP. These pumps can work for tasks in many industries, including wastewater treatment, mining, chemicals, food processing, pharmaceuticals, agriculture, pulp and paper, engineering, and paint and pigments. Whatever the need, Albin can fulfill it.
