2012 SELECTA’S NEW SMOOTHFLO - Quantum Leap for 12 Volt Pumps
Silvan Australia has released the compact new Smoothflo 12 volt pressure pump that offers continual flow without the need for a pressure regulator, ideal for use with spraying equipment as well as mobile homes, recreational vehicles and marine applications.
There is a significant market each year for a compact twelve volt powered pressure pump for liquids or water transfer or powering smaller capacity spraying equipment.
Newly developed in the USA the key feature of the Smoothflo pump is the constant pressure technology from the pump when turned on, to prevent uneven pulsation.
This effect is important where a twelve volt powered pump is part of a system for spraying so that the application pattern is uneven.
“It achieves a maximum pressure of 690 kPa or 120 psi and a maximum open flow of up to seven litres per minute.
“Typical maximum power draw is 9 amps while the Smoothflo has an electric motor with quality roller bearings at each end of the shaft and is sealed to give an IP55 rating.
“The Smoothflo 12 volt pump is manufactured with Viton valves and a Santoprene diaphragm while its internal design regulates the flow under pressure to maximise the volume under higher pressures.
“By design it is a positive displacement three chamber diaphragm pump with a built in auto bypass which includes a quality Honeywell on demand pressure sensing micro switch for on demand spraying or other transfer applications.”
The new pump is compact in shape and while weighing only 2.6 kgs the Smoothflo is self priming and has all inlet and outlet fittings in standard 3/8 inch BSP profiles.
Mr Everett says “the Smoothflo pump is designed for continuous flow without the need for a traditional pressure regulator and is supplied with a common footprint mounting plate requiring only four screws to fix in place.
