Self-priming thermoplastic pumps

September 17, 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, non-metallic materials do not corrode. In addition to their chemical inertness, the thermoplastics also offer superior abrasion resistance. These are not plastic-lined metal pumps. The self-priming 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.
