English Lightweight Pump
What is said to be an innovation in small pumps will be displayed at the forthcoming Brussels International Exhibit in April.
The pump, built of aluminum alloy, was invented by James Goodyear of Great Britain, weighs 11 pounds, and is said to deliver 31 gpm at 85 psi with a driving engine of 3.1 bhp.
The product is an adaptation of the Archimedes “screw” with the addition of a rotating plate. Metal-to-metal contact is said to be eliminated by using a rubber stator surrounding the rotor screw. It is claimed the pump produces a pulseless action.
