New high efficiency mag drive pumps

August 20, 2007

Finish Thompson Inc. announces new models within the DB Series premium magnetic drive pump line. The DB6, 6H, 7, 8, 9 and 10 operate at up to 70 percent efficiency with broad hydraulic coverage. Impeller diameters are evenly spaced for more precise coverage. These new DB Series models have working pressure capabilities up to 80 psi (5.5 bar), which allow high specific gravity fluids (1.8+ SG) to be pumped safely. Flow rates for these new models range from 15 to 95 gpm with discharge head from 5 to 68 feet. The DB6, 6H, 7, 8, 9 and 10 are backed by an exceptional 5-year warranty. The product of advanced design software including CFD and Magnetic Flux, the DB Series is precision engineered to sustain a long life cycle in the most aggressive, corrosive environments. It offers premium performance at low cost of operation. High hydraulic efficiency significantly reduces energy consumption. Superior run-dry ability maintains pump integrity during system failures, even for hours at a time. DB Series pumps are molded from durable, corrosion resistant GF Polypropylene or CF PVDF. Multiple motor adapters and drive magnet sets enable mounting to any NEMA or IEC motor. NPT or BSP threaded and flanged connections provide installation flexibility. All models are CE rated. ATEX certified versions are also available. These versatile pumps are ideal for many applications including chemical transfer and water/wastewater treatment.
