First introduced in 1934, the Liqui-Mover pump is a pressure-powered pump that performs the same liquid transport functions as centrifugal pumps. However, the Liqui-Mover pump is based on an entirely different operating concept and has fewer moving parts than conventional centrifugal pumps.
The positive displacement condensate pump has no motors, starters, rotating shafts, mechanical seals or impellers. Instead, it uses steam or compressed air as the motive force to lift or pump liquids.
With no maintenance-intensive components to leak, wear, or fail, the Liqui-Mover condensate pump is a naturally more reliable than conventional pumps. As a result, the Liqui-Mover condensate pump will work longer, with less maintenance and far less downtime than conventional pumps.
What to look for when choosing a pump for steam condensate service:
Ability to handle high temperature condensate and flash steam
Proven performance and reliability
