Vanton Pump introduces new solar powered pump systemMarch 18, 2011
Vanton Pump and Equipment has debuted a new solar powered chemical dosing system featuring a non-metallic, peristaltic pump. The solar powered pump is ideal for the corrosion-free transfering of caustic and acidic treatment chemicals from thermoplastic storage tanks to remote water and waste water facilities, according to a news release from the company.
The Flex-I-Liner model 12 pump uses a rotor mounted on an eccentric shaft to push fluid from between a flexible elastomer liner and a solid plastic body block. The self-priming design has no seals to leak, valves to clog and can run dry without being damaged.
The body block is made of solid polypropylene, UHMW polyethylene or PTFE, and the flexible liner is made of natural rubber, neoprene, Hypalon, Viton or Nordel, eliminating the corrosion associated with pumps made of stainless steel and high alloys. The wicking and delamination associated with fiberglass and plastic-lined metals is also eliminated.
Vanton Pump and Equipment 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).
