Vane pumps are a type of positive displacement pump that uses blades, know as vanes, that slide in and out of rotor slots to move fluids. The action creates a suction that pumps fluids. The rotor sits close to the wall of the cam, creating a crescent-shaped cavity on the other side. The blades on the vane pump, which are always in contact with the cam wall, turn with the rotor. As the rotor spins, the vanes slide out when they reach the cavity, trapping fluid. As the vanes reach the end of the open space, they slide back in, and the trapped fluid than to the outlet or discharge valve.
DAE Pumps vane pumps combine low cost with high reliability, easy maintenance, and the best suction. Our vane pumps are the finest at processing low viscosity liquids such as solvents, gasoline, LP gas (propane), ammonia, alcohol, fuel oils, and refrigerants. They can also handle moderate viscosity liquids and comes in a variety of metal for these specific applications. DAE Pumps vane pumps are capable of up to 200,000 SSU and at temperatures between -25°F to 500°F.
Mirasol Vane Pumps
The DAE Pumps Mirasol vane pumps are the industries most reliable vane pumps for high volume transferring of non-corrosive liquids. Mirasol vane pumps process a variety of liquids ranging in viscosity from thick molasses to thin solvents. The heavy-duty Mirasol pumps provide trouble-free operation with very little maintenance. Our wear-resistant pumps are capable of pumping fluids of up to 200,000 SSU and can reach a maximum capacity of 2,220 GPM at 350 RPM.
