APV pumps and valves are among the most hygienic and advanced in the world. Designed and built around the customer's need for hygienic processing, product protection, and fast, easy maintenance. APV pumps and valves are backed by a 100-year track record for technological advances, process knowledge and dependability. The centrifugal pump line manufactured by APV meets 3-A, FDA, USDA, BISSC and more. Major lines include the W+ Series, the most advance, high performance and sanitary pump for the demands of high quality products; and the V2, APV's economical solution to a wide range of pumping needs. APV's broad range of pumps also includes positive displacement pumps such as the DW and R Series. The DW rotary lobe is ultra hygienic and so fast that it can often be both the product and CIP pump. APV's R Series pump line meets 3-A COP requirements and are known for easy disassembly and clean up equaling low maintenance costs. APV's wide range of valves includes a hygienic 3-A single seat design,a cutting-edge control unit,and an ultra-hygienic mix-proof valve designed to leave no surface unclean.
Versa-Matic has released its Ultra-Matic 2" high efficiency pump. A completely redesigned air section provides increased pump performance while requiring less compressed air to operate. With a pumping capacity of up to 200 gallons per minute, the Ultra-Matic provides a performance increase of up to 30% compared to other air-operated double diaphragm (AODD) pumps. The Ultra-Matic's performance increase can be attributed to enhanced volumetric efficiency and the ability for compressed air to completely evacuate the pump. The redesigned air section efficiently utilizes space and eliminates friction by way of a patented sliding exhaust valve that enables air to exit directly into the atmosphere. Air flows smoothly through the valve and center section, entering through one port and exiting through another. This design results in streamlined efficiency that saves costly compressed air. In addition, the Ultra-Matic has fewer moving parts, minimizing repair and maintenance-while a positive pressure shifting mechanism eliminates stalling. Available for Versa-Matic's 2" AODD pumps, this industry-changing breakthrough is available in a variety of materials and styles, including plastic, aluminum, cast iron, and stainless steel. The Ultra-Matic is interchangeable with all existing bolted and clamped Versa-Matic pumps, and is retrofittable with Wilden 2" clamped-style pumps. Versa-Matic Pump Company, a unit of IDEX Corporation, is a recognized leader in the design and manufacture of air-operated double diaphragm pumps and accessories.
