NEXA SERIES

Double-diaphragm and packed plunger pumps with full motion mechanisms

OVERVIEW

Capable of superior performance in even the most severe operating conditions, the Nexa Series packed-plunger and hydraulic double-diaphragm metering pumps represent one of heavy industry’s most versatile, robust and reliable fluid metering and dosing solutions.

Nexa’s exceptional build quality enables stable dosing even under extreme operating pressures and temperatures, from wellhead chemical injection in oil and gas applications to pyrophoric liquids handling in chemical compounds manufacturing.

Designed to meet API 675 3rd edition standard and compliant to Norsok M-501 & M-630, NACE 0175, ATEX2014/34/EU, TR CU 004-010-020-012/2011 and Shell DEP (various), Nexa can be safely operated in hazardous processes, reassuring operators of the pump’s suitability regardless of the application.

Valves

Exakta is committed to developing flexible and customized valve configurations with flow channels specifically designed to improve hydraulic efficiency while coping with different conditions and applications.

Seam Cone Valve

Thanks to additive manufacturing technology, delivers high performance with SS 3D printing while allowing endless shape possibilities to meet unique in-valve fluid dynamics for every application.

Features

  • Lower NPSH required (up to 10%)
  • Increased volumetric efficiency (3%)
  • 30% lighter than conventional machined valves
  • Enhanced durability for longer mean time between repair

Advantages at a glance

Flexibility
All Nexa mechanisms, regardless of size, can be easily combined to form larger metering units with significant construction advantages, simplifying assembly and installation. Mechanisms are coupled together using joints with no exposed parts, resulting in a compact unit with a strong and perfectly-aligned connection which removes the need for a special base. As process demands for changes in process conditions, users can quickly and easily add a pump to an existing system by performing a few simple coupling operations, even on site.

The superior versatility of Nexa pump drive unit allows motors to be mounted left-sided, right-sided or even vertically depending on the installation requirements. Nexa also allows different-sized mechanisms to be coupled, with casings designed to maintain the same foot level in order to allow installation on a flat support base. An internal gearbox allows pumps with different stroke adjustment to be combined to form multihead units for greater flexibility.
Customization
With Exakta's tailor-made manufacturing approach, customers can personalize their Nexa series pump with multiple drive units combination, hydraulic configurations, piping connections, suction and discharge solutions and accessories to withstand temperature extremes, aggressive chemicals and difficult suction conditions encountered in challenging applications.
