Vanton Pump announces a new non-metallic, mobile pump/tank cartOctober 19, 2011
Vanton Pump announces a new non-metallic, mobile pump/tank cart capable of transferring wastewater and caustic/acidic chemicals with no corrosion, and ultrapure fluids with no contamination.
All fluid contact surfaces of the tank, base plate, and secondary containment chamber are of solid polypropylene, polyethylene, PVC or other inert thermoplastic, precluding chemical attack across the entire pH range.
The pump, a Flex-I-Liner® model CC-PY12B, utilizes a rotor mounted on an eccentric shaft to push fluid trapped between a flexible elastomer liner and a solid thermoplastic body block at flows to 2 gpm (7.6 lpm), pressures to 25 psig (1.72 bar) and temperatures to 185°F (85°C).
The self-priming pump design has no seals to leak or valves to clog and can run dry without damage.
The rigid body block is molded of solid polypropylene, UHMW polyethylene, or PTFE, and the flexible liner of natural rubber, neoprene, Hypalon, Viton or Nordel, eliminating corrosion and ionization associated with metal pumps.
Other mobile and stationary tank/pump systems equipped with larger Flex-I-Liner pumps handle higher flows.
Vanton Pump also manufactures stand-alone peristaltic pumps as well as horizontal pumps, vertical sump pumps, and integrated non-metallic tank/pump systems with flows to 1450 gpm (330 m3/h) at heads to 400 ft (122 m).
