VERSATILITY OF DESIGN
Blackstone pumps have been designed to meet the ever changing needs of industry. To accommodate diverse applications, the pumps can be easily mounted anywhere in your plant with a broad, flat base and mounting holes for tank, shelf or floor mounting (horizontal). The rear of the pump housing also provides mounting holes to facilitate vertical mounting; wall, tank or machine. With the pump valve assembly and unit controls both located on the front of the pump, there is never a problem with installation or flow adjustments.
Blackstone pumps are equipped with a single control for pump output. The external Flow Rate Control (potentiometer) on the face of the pump allows you to adjust the percentage of flow from 0 to 100% of the pump's rated capacity. This feature eliminates the need to worry about stroke lengths and power settings. An LED indicator lights up each time a stroke begins. This allows the user to assess the stroke rate from a distance.
HIGH QUALITY MATERIALS
Blackstone pumps have been manufactured with the highest level of mechanical precision from materials chosen for their inherent ability to resist the effects of aggressive chemicals. When you select a Blackstone pump you are eliminating the time consuming effort involved in picking the right material for your application. Blackstone pumps are supplied with the highest quality material as standard equipment, not optional. The diaphragm utilizes one-piece construction of Teflon®, which unlike conventional laminated diaphragms will stand up to the test of time and wear. Ball valves are constructed in glass. The pump head, and O-rings are all made of Teflon® or Kynar® which offer unsurpassed resistance to the chemicals in your industry.
Blackstone pumps are completely sealed during assembly and offer IP65 protection against splashes and spills providing excellent protection even in hostile environments. The fiber-reinforced polypropylene housing stands up to aggressive chemicals while offering superior strength under tough industrial conditions.
RELIABILITY THROUGH SIMPLICITY
Blackstone's positive displacement solenoid driven pumps use a minimum number of moving parts, therefore reducing the chance of mechanical failure. Part wear and oiling associated with motor driven pumps (ball-bearings, gear drives and cams) are not present in these pumps. Blackstone pumps are more accurate than standard pumps with the positive displacement design ensuring each stroke is identical to the strokes before and after it, thus keeping the flow rate constant.
Blackstone pumps offer features not usually found in other pumps. Together with the superior customer service and expert technical support, Blackstone is placed in a league of its own. When comparing material, construction, performance and price, you will agree that Blackstone is simply the best.
A wide range of Blackstone pumps with different dosing capacities is available for your specific dosing needs. Each pump is supplied with discharge and suction valves. Polyethylene tubing, injection fittings, ceramic weights and replacement parts are available from your local dealer
