The Ahlstrom APT-4 pump is an extremely popular pump found in paper mills across the United States. This horizontal single stage pump is most commonly used in low pressure, high flow rate transfers involving low viscosity fluids such as water. These pumps have proven to be robust and reliable in paper mills.
What are the features of Isomag bearing isolators and why are they so beneficial to your Ahlstrom APT 4?
The benefits of an Isomag bearing isolator are:
Magnetic Closing Force – “Magnetic energy is used to create a closing force keeping the seal faces in positive contact.”
Seals in all positions: horizontal, vertical, angled, rock and roll
Seals in all types of bearing lubrication: splash, flooded, forced, oil mist
Seals during stand-by
Reduces stray mist from oil mist systems
Enables use of closed-loop oil mist systems
Easily installed by hand
Removable without damage to the isolator or equipment
Face seal that rotates with the shaft
Your Ahlstrom APT 4 will benefit from Isomag bearing isolators by providing a positive seal that prevents leakage, protects against the ingress of internal contamination, and provides years of reliable service. As the pioneers in the magnetic bearing isolator market, Isomag continues to bring innovation and technology in an effort to extend rotating equipment life.
