September 1, 2004 - New Product Launch
Carver Pump is pleased to introduce its new M Series close coupled, end suction pumps for handling freshwater, seawater, and light hydrocarbons in commercial marine and naval applications. Conforming to the requirements of ASTM F 998, including the Navy supplement, hydraulic performance extends to 5,000 GPM and 700 feet of head. This range is covered by twenty-four sizes in 316 SS and CD4MCu duplex SS as the standard materials. Installation can be either horizontal close or vertical. Shaft deflections are less than 0.002” at shut off, and overall the M Series offers some of the most efficient hydraulics to be found in a pump of this type anywhere.
Designed to meet the military’s needs for a commercial off the shelf (COTS) pump, options include a shock approved version, polymeric casing coatings, cyclone separators, and vibration detection devices. Along with these, Ni-Al-Br and 70/30 Cu-Ni casings, U.S. Navy approved composite impellers, shaft sleeves and wear rings, and a full range of motor and baseplate choices are all available. Noise, shock, vibration, and endurance testing to U.S. Military specifications are also offered.
Putting it all together, the M Series provides the reliability, affordability, low total life cost, and lasting value that has made Carver the world’s most trusted name for mission-critical marine duty pumps.
June 3, 2003 – Revised Product Released
Carver Pump is pleased to announce it has revised the hydraulic design of its RS Series multi-stage pump. These changes have resulted in greatly increased hydraulic efficiencies, which lowers customers’ total cost of ownership by lowering both the first time cost (fewer pump stages and smaller motor) and annual operating costs (less energy to operate). Along with these improved efficiencies, the range of the RS Series has also been extended to 18 stages and 1,500 PSI (3,400 ft TDH). This in turn will open up applications for the RS Series that before would have required a much more expensive type of pump.
These changes are effective immediately, and all RS pumps shipping now incorporate these improved efficiencies and higher pressure capabilities. Older RS models already in operation can be retrofit to realize these enhancements as well.
