The Sidewinder AC Powered Chemical Pump, introducing innovation and simplicity for a more reliable, energy efficient pump that provides lower maintenance cost and ease of repair.
Our approach to designing a better pump resulted in less moving parts. Our direct drive plunger/cam arrangement eliminates the cross head and resulting alignment issues reducing plunger and seal wear. The cartridge style plunger head assembly & one piece plunger seal arrangement allows for ease of repair and ease of changing plunger sizes in less than 10 minutes. The spring return eliminates the motor having to pull the plunger back in the cycle reducing the amount of energy required to complete a full cycle.
The unique pump base allows for mounting on surface of choice, whether direct to a skid or a pump stand. The pump base provides clearance and access to the check valves for tubing and repair without interference of the mountain surface
Cartridge style pump head allows for ease of repair in replacing plungers and seals. Plunger sizes can be changed in a matter of minutes. System utilizes same packing elements as the Sidewinder pneumatic pumps
Innovation is the name of the game, and Sidewinder is leading the way with our plunger and seal design. Sidewinder uses an insert that holds the plunger seal. To change plunger sizes, simply change the insert, plunger and plunger seal. Plungers come in Ceramic coated as standard, providing excellent chemical resistance and wear life. The entire assembly is mounted to the drive housing using only 4 fasteners, and can be removed in a matter of minutes.
Sidewinder AC pumps use the same seal arrangements as our pneumatic pumps. Chevron or adjustable style packing allows the operator to over tighten the packing creating excessive drag on the plunger, resulting in greater energy draw, which shortens battery life. With our innovative design, seals can be changed in matter of minutes without having to dig them out with tools that can mar or damage the seal gland.
New Stroke Length Adjuster
Sidewinder Pumps introduces our new Stroke Length Adjuster for AC / Solar Pump lines. The innovative design allows for 0-100% adjustment while pump is running. This provides accurate flow control options especially on duplex pumps with different size plungers. Setting the Stroke Adjuster to 0 will allow maintenance to be done to that pump without having to take pump out of service. The Stroke Adjuster can be retrofitted to existing pumps.
AC Powered Chemical Metering Pump Packages
The Sidewinder Timer is practical and user friendly. It comes standard with a built-in temperature probe for Methanol applications. A data I/O port for Mod Bus communication allows for remote monitoring and metering control. The timer can be programmed to run in various configurations according to injection requirements. Dosing can be intermittent (scavenger type applications with smaller doses over shorter time period) or set for batch dosing (large doses over longer timer period). Injection rates are achieved by combinations of the on/off cycles in either seconds (intermittent) or minutes (batch). Minimum pump output is 0.02 quarts/day (simplex 1/4″ plunger 1 stroke per hour) to maximum of 588 quarts/day (duplex 1/2″ plunger continuous 60 strokes per minute).
