The Novaplex Vector is a triple-diaphragm process pump that reduces the required footprint for installation by arranging the pump heads in three dimensions. Its new patented design simplifies assembly and reduces the number of crankshaft bearings from six to two, increasing reliability and making maintenance easy. The model uses the robust Bran+Luebbe diaphragm-pump head design, which can be used in potentially hazardous atmospheres, and is certified for use in hazardous areas up to Zone 1 IIC T4. The pump can be equipped with the Novalink-CSM 2 continuous pump-monitoring system. This software can be used as a stand-alone solution or incorporated into an asset-management system to enable advance detection of possible pump failure. Its use can help to optimize maintenance schedules. — SPX Corp., Charlotte, N.C.
