Goulds Introduces Medium Consistency X-Ducer™ Pump


    (Seneca Falls, NY March 29, 2007) Goulds Pumps, one of the fluid brands of ITT Corporation, has announced the release of the Model 3500XD, a new medium consistency paper pulp pump with unique X-Ducer technology.

    The 3500XD features a patented air separation device. The X-Ducer agitates paper pulp to assist flow into the pump inlet while separating air from the water and fibers. Pump efficiency increases up to 8 points with the X-Ducer, which translates into smaller motor sizes and lower operating costs. The XD design allows pumping of medium consistency pulp up to 10% without a vacuum pump further lowering initial capital and operating costs. The head generation has increased for the XD design – typically a 5% increase. The XD design also allows for lower suction head requirements. The X-Ducer design is based on ITT inducer technology. The X-Ducer can be retrofitted in the field.
