Q.E.D. Environmental Systems launches new aggressive fluid duty landfill liquid pump

Q.E.D. Environmental Systems, Inc, a manufacturer of innovative environmental products and subsidiary of Graco Inc, has launched new aggressive fluid duty landfill liquid pump for diverse range of applications, including mining.

The AutoPump® Ultra 4+ Aggressive Fluid Duty landfill liquid pump features upgraded materials that extends the pump’s service life and expands its use cases to a wider set of conditions, the company says.

The pump has stainless steel parts that have been upgraded to 316-grade, dramatically improving corrosion resistance. Its non-metallic internal parts, meanwhile, are polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF), a high-grade engineered plastic that retains higher strength at elevated temperatures and has extremely broad chemical resistance. These components ensure the new pump withstands the acidic and oxidising cleaning agents sometimes used for pump maintenance.

The AutoPump Ultra 4+ Aggressive Fluids pump has a patented design to achieve chemical resistance that lasts in a host of challenging scenarios, according to the company. Specifically, it is able to provide reliability and safety in the following difficult conditions: hydrocarbon (LNAPL and dissolved phase) remediation; landfill leachate and methane condensate pumping; solvent (dissolved phase and DNAPL) clean-up; suspended solids, silts and corrosives; high viscosities; high temperatures; and frequent starts and stops.

It is available as either a 4 in (102 mm) bottom inlet or a 4 in top inlet and can withstand temperatures up to 180° fahrenheit (82°C). It has a maximum fluid viscosity of 1,000 centistokes, a maximum depth of 250 ft (76 m), and a flow range of 6-14 gallons per minute (23-53 litres per minute).

Graco provides ‘right-sized’ automatic lubrication system

Graco Inc has launched a new automatic lubrication system specifically designed for heavy-duty earth-moving machines in extreme work environments.

The Compact Dyna-Star® (CDS) lubrication system offers the power and performance needed for the toughest users and markets, according to the company, adding that it also has a smaller footprint and is priced to fit customer needs.

It builds on the company’s range of fluid transfer, lubrication, cleaning, painting, coating and insulation products for the mining sector.

“When paired with Graco’s new innovative Bluetooth-enabled GLC™ X controller and Auto Lube™ app, maintenance crews can monitor system performance, receive alerts, and adjust configurations from their smartphone or tablet,” the company said.

Dan Jensen, Graco’s Lubrication Equipment Division Global Product Marketing Manager, said: “The Compact Dyna-Star system is the latest offering in our comprehensive portfolio of automatic lubrication systems. Built tough like our Electric Dyna-Star pump, the CDS fits into tighter spots and meets tighter budgets. Finally, there’s a rugged ‘right-sized’ automatic lubrication system.”

A Maintenance Manager that tested the product said: “We’re impressed by how easy the Compact Dyna-Star automatic lubrication system is to fill with grease and how the pump shuts off when full. We appreciate the higher volume output per minute with the motor running less frequently, and how the smaller pump footprint enhances safety by taking up less room on the walking deck.”

Graco will be showing off the Compact Dyna-Star system at the upcoming CONEXPO-CON/AGG show from March 10-14, 2020.
