At TDP®, our pumps are designed for the most abrasive and erosive particulates, slurries, and sludge. They gently handle the most fragile crystals, sensitive chemicals, and polymer emulsions. TESLA DISK PUMPS™ are specifically engineered industrial equipment products designed to meet your challenging process requirements. Our pumps are built for toughness and durability against abrasive slurries, sludge, drilling scale, coatings, and filter press feeds. With a unique design, TESLA DISK PUMPS™ can move pipe-size solids without clogging or plugging as other pumps can. TESLA DISK PUMPS™ use the latest improved designs of disk pump technology. They can also be retrofitted to replace impellers from open, semi-open, recessed, and air/gas entrained particles, high solids, and high viscosities.
The top four performance advantages of the TESLA DISK Rotor are:
Pulsation-free flow enhances gentle processing of fragile products and eliminates costly damage while greatly reducing wear to pump, related piping, and instrumentation.
This allows the disk pump to pass large and irregular hard solids as well as a variable solids stream without plugging.
The disk low NPSH ranges from approximately 1/3 to 1/2 that of conventional centrifugal pumps in the same service due to the smooth laminar flow generated by this design.
The disk pump design is capable of being operated indefinitely with zero process fluid.
NOTE: The mechanical seal must be flushed during dry-running.
It is possible to deadhead the discharge and/or starve the suction for extended periods of time at normal operating speeds with no damage to the pump. (Not including sealing device unless it is properly protected and lubricated.)
Exceptional low radial and axial loads generated by the disk rotor result in extended seal, bearing, and shaft life. This is attributed to laminar flow within the disk.
