Wright Flow Technologies Revolution Circumferential Piston Pump with Electric Limpet Heater

Wright Flow Technologies Revolution pump with limpet heating jacket

This Circumferential Piston Pump from the Wright Flow Technologies’ Revolution series is fitted with a ‘Limpet’ electrical heating element and will soon be installed alongside similar pumps on-site.

Our Pharmaceutical client chose to break from the standard bolt-on water jacketed heating options for the front cover and/or rotor case and preferred to heat the pump rotor case electrically with a ‘Limpet’ attached to the pump front cover.

This particular client switched from Waukesha® Pumps many years ago and has been reaping the many hygiene, performance & ease-of-maintenance benefits that the Wright Flow Technologies Revolution Circumferential Piston Pump series offers over the legacy Waukesha® Universal Pumps range.
