The Yamada® Split Manifold pump is a type of positive displacement pump that is designed to allow for a variety of inlet and outlet port configurations using a single pump. Positive displacement pumps are used for applications where the flow rate needs to be precisely controlled, and where the fluid being pumped is viscous or has a high solids content.
The Split Manifold pump's unique feature is its ability to have multiple inlet and outlet port configurations. This means that the pump can be used to pump or combine two fluids with similar specific gravity, such as antifreeze and water. This feature allows for more efficient and cost-effective pumping, as it eliminates the need for two separate pumps.
For example, a dual suction/single discharge Split Manifold pump could be used to mix two fluids, such as antifreeze and water. In this configuration, the pump would have two suction ports and one discharge port. The pump would draw in equal amounts of antifreeze and water from each suction port, and then combine them before discharging the mixed fluid out of the single discharge port.
Another example of a Split Manifold pump configuration would be a dual suction/dual discharge pump. This type of pump would be suitable for pumping two different colors of ink to separate locations. In this configuration, the pump would have two suction ports and two discharge ports. The pump would draw in one color of ink from each suction port and then discharge each color out of its respective discharge port, ensuring that the colors do not mix.
In summary, the Yamada Split Manifold pump is a versatile and efficient pump that can be configured to multiple inlet and outlet port combinations. This feature makes it ideal for pumping or combining two fluids with similar specific gravity or for pumping two different fluids to separate locations.
