IMO Double CIG Pumps Offer Increased Flow Rates At Lower Installed Cost

The CIG® Pump Series, available from IMO Pump Division, now includes a double pump design for multi-staging and multi-pump applications.

The double units, consisting of two CIG pumps assembled on a common shaft with a common suction port, provide important OEM design advantages for applications normally requiring two separate pumps. The double CIG pumps can be installed to double flow in a single circuit or to power two individual circuits, reducing installation space and expense due to fewer inlet-side piping requirements and the need for only one driver.

Compared to conventional pump designs usually operating at 90 db (A) or higher, double CIG pumps have a lower noise level—typically 75 db (A). This feature is particularly meaningful for machine designs in which it is desirable to increase perceived quality, and for installations requiring a large number of pumps mounted in close proximity.

Under the most severe operating conditions and with minimal maintenance, double CIG pumps can be expected to give reliable performance in excess of 30,000 hours or 10 times longer than conventional designs.

IMO Pump Division, IMO Industries Inc., is one of the world's largest designers and manufacturers of high performance rotary screw pumps. Known for design simplicity, wide fluid viscosity capacities, pulsation-free operation, and high reliability over extended periods, they are used in a broad range of industries for fuel oil/fluid transfer, lube oil service, hydraulic power, hydraulic sealing, and turbine governor use.
