The Liverani RID Series is a range of gear box driven flexible impeller pumps. By using a gear box with twin output shafts, double headed options are available to generate either larger flow rates or higher heads. The RID MAXI DOUBLE 2Q effectively doubles the flow of the RID MAXI 80, whereas the RID MAXI DOUBLE 2H effectively doubles the head.

Flexible impeller pumps are a very versatile in the applications that are suitable for thanks to several design benefits. Firstly, thanks to their supple vanes they are able to handle not only clean, light fluids, but also viscous, solid laden slurries. Secondly, the multiple materials the impellers are made out of mean they are compatible with many fluids e.g. NBR for fats and fuels, EPDM for chemicals and hot fluids and natural rubber for water based liquids. Flexible vane pumps with EPDM and NBR impellers are able to be supplied with FDA Certification, making them a popular food grade pump solution. Their low shear operation also makes the ideal for handling delicate fluids that can be altered by other pump designs.

Flexible impeller pumps are renowned for their dry self-priming capability, making them ideal for applications where good suction lift capacity is needed such as the emptying of tanks, sumps and other containers. The RID flexible vane pumps are widely used in transferring, filling & emptying applications for medium to high viscosity fluids or for operating at low rotational speeds for shear sensitive fluids. As the pumps are close coupled, the various inlet and outlet configurations can be better taken advantage of (a possible draw back to the GR series of flexible impeller pumps).

More information on how a flexible vane pump works and the applications it is often selected for is available here.

The beauty of the RID flexible impeller pump is it's versatility. Thanks to the following features it is an option that can be applied to many application requirements. 

  • Handles solids up to 25mm – Supple impellers bend to pass viscous fluids and slurries up to 50,000 CP and solids without damage to the pump
  • Applies low shear – Ideal for delicate, shear sensitive fluids that can be damaged or altered by other pump types such as cream that gets thicker when whipped.
  • Reversible operation – Allows cleaning solution to be ran through after use for hygienic pump applications, and tank to tank transfer applications.
  • FDA approved – EPDM and NBR impellers with FDA certification for food grade pump assurance. Stainless sanitary enclosures and Tri-clamp couplings available.
  • Smooth, steady pumping – Provides a consistent flow ideal for dosing ingredients, chemicals and process fluids and filling finished product into packaging.
  • Self-priming up to 6m – Enables the emptying of tanks and drums without a non-return valve or regular manual priming being required. 
  • Various mounting positions - Allows for versatile installation to fit the pipework at hand
  • Various accessories available - Trolley for portability, bypass valve for nozzle dispensing, control panel, variable speed drive, level sensors and dry run protection

Flexible impeller pumps are a versatile design of pump for relatively low pressure applications, mainly with thanks to their impellers being produced in a wide range of materials for fluid compatibility including food grade applications. As the impellers are made of a supple, rubber type material that is able to bend, flexible vane pumps are also able to handle viscous fluids and those with solid content without causing damage. They also apply little shear to the pumped medium, making them suitable for shear sensitive fluids and their ability to be operated in reverse makes them ideal for tank to tank transfer. These design benefits make them suited to many applications including:

Marine Applications Industrial Applications
  • Contaminated bilge water pumping
  • Oil and lubricant transfer
  • Black and grey water pump
  • Sludge and slurries
  • Fish waste pump
  • Tank to tank seawater transfer
  • Food processing and transfer
  • Dairy products
  • Brewery and distilleries
  • Chemical pumping
  • Waster water pump containing solids
  • Oil and lubricants
  • Viscous fluids, sludges and slurries
  • Soaps, creams and gels
  • Paints, glues and detergents
