Wilden has announced the release of a new line of CSA-certified natural gas-operated double-diaphragm pumps. Specifically designed for the oil and gas industry, these new pumps have been certified by CSA International to be used in applications where natural gas is the energy source to drive the pump.
Ideal for upstream and midstream oil and gas applications, Wilden CSA-certified natural gas-operated pumps are available in Wilden Original™ (clamped), Advanced™ (bolted) and Advanced FIT models, and come equipped with either the patent-pending Wilden Pro-Flo™ SHIFT Air Distribution System (ADS), which is CSA-certified ANSI LC 6-2008, or the Wilden Pro-Flo X™ ADS, which is CSA-certified for the ANSI LC 6-2008 and TIL R-14. Wilden CSA-certified pumps are offered in 13 mm (1/2”) clamped and 25 mm (1”), 38 mm (1-1/2”), 51 mm (2”) and 76 mm (3”) bolted configurations.
Wilden CSA-certified pumps also comply with all CE and ATEX requirements, and feature extreme shear sensitivity, high-viscosity handling, dry-run capability, superior anti-freezing and no deadhead damage. The maximum flow rate is 993 lpm (246 gpm) for the 76 mm (3”) model, and the maximum discharge pressure is 6.9 bar (100 psig) for all models. Wetted paths are aluminum or stainless steel, and available diaphragm materials are Buna-N, PTFE or Wil-Flex™.
