Mechanically sealed pumps are commonly used in dangerous-chemical production and handling, but seal-less pump technologies can often be the more effective choice when full containment of dangerous and high-value chemicals is an absolute must. More specifically, positive displacement (PD) seal-less eccentric disc pump technology provides less risk of chemical leaks and spills, and more efficiency than other pumps. The advantages of using eccentric disc pumps are numerous:
Mouvex®, Auxerre, France, a product brand of PSG®, Oakbrook Terrace, IL, USA, a Dover company, has taken pump performance when handling dangerous chemicals to the next level with its new G-FLO Series Seal-Less Eccentric Disc Pumps. Like all Mouvex eccentric disc pumps, the G-FLO models have been designed to provide premium performance and the ultimate in product containment and safety in chemical-processing applications, with high suction and discharge pressures that allow them to self-prime and fully strip lines after production runs.
But what truly sets the G-FLO pumps apart from the competition is their ability to achieve incredibly high flow rates for high-volume transfer operations. Specifically, the largest G-FLO model (the 65-S) has a maximum flow rate of 65 m3/hr, or 286 gpm (1,080 L/min), when operating at pressures between 7 and 10 bar (101 and 145 psi) at temperatures up to 212ºF (100ºC).
G-FLO pumps also feature a unique seal-less design that revolves around a triple stainless-steel bellows that ensures durability, safety and leak-free product containment. The pumps can run dry for five minutes, while the self-compensating eccentric disc operating principle ensures consistent flow rates over a longer period of time, even when operating at low speeds.
G-FLO pumps, which can be base-mounted, feature all-stainless-steel construction with O-rings in FKM (Viton™), encapsulated FEP or EPDM. The pumps have been approved for use in dangerous or hazardous operating atmospheres by ATEX and TA Luft.
