A Guide to Different Types of Air-driven Liquid Pumps Offered by High Pressure Technologies -II

Maximator air-driven pumps are widely used for many applications in oil and gas, industrial, chemical, and research industries. This post will introduce you to different types of Maximator oil or oil/water and chemical service pumps.

A Brief Introduction to Various Maximator Oil or Oil/Water Service Pumps

We provide the following types of oil or oil/water service pumps  –  

PPO Series: These pumps possess rugged and lightweight construction. The PPO pumps are available as single acting with single drive heads.

  • The pumps have anodized aluminum bodies and plungers. However, some models have cast iron bodies.
  • The air drive pressure range is 15PSI – 145 PSI.
  • All pumps have a standard bottom inlet.

S Series: Maximator S Series pumps have lightweight construction, and are designed for static, and portable applications. These pumps are ideal for applications that demand extremely fast response times.

  • The S series pumps are single acting with single air drive types.
  • The minimum air drive pressure is 15 PSI, whereas the maximum is 145 PSI.
  • All pumps have a standard side inlet.

S- D Series: These pumps are designed for high-flow applications, and are a double acting version of S pumps.

  • The pumps are double acting, single air drive head types.
  • The air drive pressure range is 15-145 PSI
  • All pumps S-D series pumps have side inlet.

A Discussion on Different Types of Chemical Service Pumps Provided by High Pressure Technologies

PPSF Series: These pumps are designed for chemical service applications. PPSF pumps have rugged designs, and are available as single acting pumps with single air drive heads. Additionally, there is a distant piece that separates air and liquid drive sections.

  • PPSF pumps have stainless steel bodies and plungers. The stainless steel construction offers excellent corrosion resistance in chemical environments.
  • PPSF pumps have PTFE seals and Viton O-rings.
  • Maximum air drive pressure is 145 PSI. The pumps contain no spring under the piston, and are driven in both directions. Thus, the air drive pressure required is very less. The design reduces chances of noise or cavitation.
  • The pumps are provided with a standard bottom inlet.

LSF Series: The pumps have rugged construction, and are designed for chemical service applications. The LSF pumps are single acting with single or double drive heads.

  • The pumps have stainless steel bodies and plungers, which make them ideal for chemical environments.
  • These pumps have PTFE seals and Viton O-rings.
  • The pumps are provided with a standard bottom outlet.
  • The minimum air drive pressure is 15 PSI and the maximum is 145 PSI.
  • Maximum allowable liquid temperature is 140 o

  1. Thanks for explaining that the liquid pumps in the LSF series have rugged construction and are meant to be used in the chemical service industry. It makes sense that the fluid pumps used in chemical service have to be pretty tough in order to stand up to the corrosion. I’m glad I read your article because it was interesting to learn about how pump type varies due to the intended application.
