Neptune Peristaltic PumpNeptune Chemical Pump Co., a manufacturer of chemical metering and peristaltic pumps, and part of Pump Solutions Group (PSG), has added the Abaque Series Peristaltic (Hose) Pump product line to its portfolio for the Americas.

All Abaque Series pumps sold in the Americas will now be manufactured and shipped from PSG’s Neptune facility in North Wales, Penn., after having been manufactured at PSG’s Blackmer facility in Grand Rapids, Mich., since 2009.  Neptune says the move is being made to better align the Abaque line with other PSG products and services that address the same primary market segments. The Abaque pumps are still available in nine different models/sizes—from the AB10 to the AB100—with flow rates ranging from .07 to 211 GPM (.015-48 m3/hr).

Abaque Series pumps will continue to be available in the rest of the world from Mouvex, a France-based member of PSG. The Abaque Series pumps feature a seal-free design that is intended to eliminate leaks and product contamination, enabling them to handle challenging pumping applications in the oil and gas, chemical process, industrial and municipal water treatment, paint and coatings, and mining industries. The pumps, which can run in either forward or reverse, are self-priming and offer suction-lift capabilities to 29.5 feet (9 meters), as well as the ability to run dry continuously without adversely affecting the pump’s performance. Ductile-iron and steel construction enables the pump to offer maximum discharge pressures as high as 217 PSI (15 BAR).
