An innovative new air driven liquid pump, the AHL118, has been released by Parker Autoclave Engineers, part of Parker Hannifin.
A high volume, double-ended, double acting high pressure pump, the AHL118 is designed for use in oil and gas, chemical, industrial and research applications.
The pump operates to a pressure range of 23,000 psi and at 5.6 gallons per minute (25.5 liters). The AHL118 features a carbon-based prioritized coating to the plunger, which is three times harder than Stellite. This makes the plunger unscratchable, extending the lifespan of the seals and reducing downtime, repairs and servicing, delivering major savings to the customer.
All AHL118’s hydraulic parts are manufactured from stainless steel, making them very durable with extended Mean Time Between Maintenance (MTBM) and increasing safety. All AHL118’s pump hardware is manufactured from stainless steel, which is anodized to the bottom and top caps for superior corrosion resistance.
“When developing the product, we analyzed what the issues were in the market and so designed a pump that would last significantly longer, lowering downtime and maximizing efficiency,” said Shawn P. Landry, IPD Product Manager - Pumps/Systems for Parker Autoclave Engineers.
