IMO Double CIG Pumps
Offer Increased Flow Rates
At Lower Installed Cost
The CIG® Pump Series, available from IMO Pump Division, now in- cludes a double pump design for multi-staging and multi-pump ap- plications.
The double units, consisting of two CIG pumps assembled on a common shaft with a common suc- tion 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 sin- gle circuit or to power two individu- al circuits, reducing installation space and expense due to fewer inlet-side piping requirements and 22 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 particu- larly meaningful for machine de- signs in which it is desirable to increase perceived quality, and for installations requiring a large num- ber of pumps mounted in close proximity.
Under the most severe operating conditions and with minimal main- tenance, double CIG pumps can be expected to give reliable perform- ance in excess of 30,000 hours or 10 times longer than conventional de- signs.
IMO Pump Division, IMO Indus- tries Inc., is one of the world's larg- est designers and manufacturers of high performance rotary screw pumps. Known for design simplici- ty, 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 gov- ernor use.
