Weldon Pump recently unveiled a new, electric continuous-duty boost/emergency fuel pump created for Cessna applications.
A direct replacement for the Dukes intermittent-duty pump, the new Weldon 18000 provides boost support to the aircraft’s main mechanical pump. Alternatively, it can be used as a fuel emergency pump, according to officials with the Cleveland-based company. The pump is equipped with all-metallic internal pumping components, notably tool steel blades instead of Nyltralon plastic blades, officials note.
Additional configurations are being tested on various aircraft, and a two-speed model is expected to be unveiled later in 2009, company officials added.
