CIP-able Pump Features Patented New Joint
The seepex CIP-able BCSO model has a new, patented universal joint. The new BCSO allows for higher pressures and flows: up to 500 gpm @90 psi and up to 150 gpm @360 psi. It meets 3-A standards.
In lab tests, the new joint lasted four times longer than other joint designs. It makes extensive use of 600 series stainless steel and significantly increases the load bearing surfaces for both torque and axial loads. The new joint can also handle the higher thrust loads often associated with equal wall stator designs, which also last longer on CIP service and can generate twice the pressure of conventional "cylindrical tube" design stators.
The BCSO range features molded-to-size stators, so neither gaskets nor "O" rings are needed, and the mechanical seal is directly in the suction line fluid flow to ensure full clean-in-place. The joint allows complete drive train disassembly without compromising component life or cleanability. For additional information, contact seepex, Inc. and request brochure CS.
