Features

Announcing the Universal 3 Series PD Pump has been named one of the winners in the Fluid Handling category of Plant Engineering Magazine 2018 Product of the Year! 

The Universal 3 Series is the latest addition to the Waukesha positive displacement pump family by SPX FLOW. It offers a front loading seal design with no bearings in the product zone. Operating pressure capacities up to 500 psi (34.5 bar) and standard 316L stainless steel body and cover makes this an attractive hygienic pump option for your most challenging applications in the food and beverage industry. Assembled and tested in Delavan, WI with "Waukesha 88" non-galling rotors and a standard 304 stainless steel gear case provides an ideal fluid transfer solution that is able to withstand the rigors of daily processing environments.

Long-life Features

  • Up to 500 psi (34.5 bar) pressure capability
  • Pumps rated to 300°F (149°C) as standard
  • Special rotor nut designed for extended service without loosening
  • No bearings in the product zone
  • New shafts are shorter and have larger diameter 17-4 PH shafts:
    • Reduces overhung load which improves shaft alignment and decreases seal and bearing wear for extended seal life.
    • Improves shaft strength and stiffness helping to eliminate vibration
  • Heavy duty stainless steel bearing frame standard
  • Double tapered roller bearings
  • Greased lubed bearings for positive lubrication to all bearings over entire speed, temperature and pressure range
  • Body retaining screws for maintaining mechanical seal contact during inspection
  • Extended outer seal life. A wave spring, instead of an O-ring, mechanically loads the seal
  • Unique mechanical seal design utilizes 2 pin stationary seal and special design shaft for rotary seal
Theory of Operation

Time-tested Waukesha Cherry-Burrell rotary pump; circumferential-piston operating principle


In the Waukesha Cherry-Burrell design, arc-shaped “pistons” (rotor wings) travel in annular-shaped cylinders machined in the pump body; the resulting long sealing path reduces slippage and produces a smooth flow of product without destructive pulses or pressure peaks and without valves or complex parts.
