Plant services personnel and pump specifying engineers responsible for handling corrosive, abrasive and other aggressive fluids can now use CHEM-GARD CGA thermoplastic pumps which are inert to such liquids and thereby provide longer service life than metallic or fiberglass pumps.
They meet ANSI B-73.1 standards and are metal armored, thereby enabling them to handle the same nozzle loadings as metal pumps. These centrifugal pumps are also offered in other designs including self-priming, close coupled, mag drive, combination close-coupled/mag drive, sealless, DIN as well as with motor types that have integral pump shafts.
Depending on the fluid handled, CGA pumps may be constructed of corrosion resistant thermoplastics such as polypropylene (PP), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) or other non-metallic materials. These pumps are manufactured by Vanton Pump and Equipment Corp., which designs and engineers each pump to a specific application and will use the right thermoplastic material to best perform that application.
CHEM-GARD CGA pumps feature unique, reverse-mounted seal arrangements thus avoiding metal contact with the fluid therefore eliminating the need for exotic metal seals. They are rated for flows up to 1450 GPM and heads to 400 feet.
