Self-priming, thermoplastic pumps for corrosive, aggressive fluids

November 14, 2003
New line of heavy-duty self-priming, magnetically driven horizontal end suction centrifugal pumps is provided with all fluid contact structural components molded from solid homogenous thermoplastics such as polypropylene and polyvinylidene fluoride. Unlike metals, nonmetallic materials do not corrode. In addition to their chemical inertness, the thermoplastics also offer excellent abrasion resistance. These are not plastic-lined metal pumps. The self-priming magnetically driven pumps are constructed with thick-sectioned, solid thermoplastic components that provide a greater degree of performance reliability, reduce maintenance costs, extend pump life and minimize downtime.
