‘Big Berty’ Bertolini 10,000 PSI pumps
Australian Pump has announced the release of Bertolini’s new CAX Series heavy duty triplex pumps. It cliams the big pumps offer real features and most importantly, pressures up to 750 bar.
The CAX Series is claimed by Bertolini to be a breakthrough in design and particularly in value for money. The 750-bar pump offers flows up to 25 litres a minute at 1000 rpm. The pump head is stainless steel (316), providing great strength to maximise chemical resistance in any high-pressure application.
Solid pistons with tungsten carbide coating are also standard equipment, designed to reduce wear and to prolong both high and low pressure seal life. Like all Bertolini’s triplex pumps, the high pressure seals are made of PTFE and energised component.
Friction is reduced to the minimum thus ensuring the perfect hold in any condition for a longer period of time. These PTFE seals provide chemical/solvent resistance and superior performance. Large diameter stainless steel plunger rods are designed so they do not come in contact with the oil seal which reduces wear and will ensure sufficient lubrication of the pistons. Premium bearings are also supplied, designed to endure heavier loads and extend operation times.
“These are a breakthrough pump in terms of design and value for money,” says Aussie Pumps chief engineer John Hales. “They even have patented du-dry plunger rod bushings, PTFE coated, to greatly reduce friction to provide smooth operation,” he said.
The pumps also offer check valves made of a unique stainless-steel material that is thicker to withstand high pressure operations. They are fitted with an aspheric sealing system to enhance the high fluid dynamic efficiency and to maximise durability.
“We see these as being a major breakthrough for Australian Pump as we start using these pumps not only to replace far more expensive equivalents but also to start building bigger machines in both diesel and electric configurations,” says John.
Hales claims that the company already has some excellent leads from offshore operations and from dry docks right through the South Pacific.
The company is continuing market survey work and expect to have the products available in Australia by the end of the first quarter of 2020.
