Extremely high pressures


Flow can be easily controlled via speed


Pressure changes do not impact flow rate or pump balance


Piston pumps can tolerate entrained gas


Stainless versions for FDA approval


Air operation in very low stroke rates will tolerate high viscositiesP


Positive inlet feed pressures required with higher speeds / viscosities


Wear extremely quickly with abrasive fluids if speeds are not kept very low


Usually limited to clean thin liquids above 50 strokes / minute
