Corrosion fighter … Gorman-Rupp rotary gear pumps
Gorman-Rupp rotary gear pumps are built to effectively handle corrosive and viscous fluids.
According to their Australian distributors Hydro Innovations, Gorman-Rupp pumps are ideal for dealing with a broad range of corrosive fluids – from acids to solvents and from acetates to sulphates.
In fact, all manner of liquors, food products and chemicals can be handled by Gorman-Rupp’s range of rotary gear pumps.
The range is available in stainless steel with a variety of sealing options including Viton®, Teflon®, Kalrez®, and Chemrez®.
“These sealing materials are also available in a variety of configurations including cartridge, metal bellows, as well as double and tandem including double and tandem cartridge,” says Hydro Innovations representative, Garry Grant.
The tandem and double seal options allow barrier fluids to be used where toxic, flammable or dangerous liquids are being pumped.
“Our stainless steel rotary gear pumps are also able to handle very viscous fluids (up to and exceeding 400,000 centistokes) as well as high and low temperatures (-34oC to 358oC) and high pressures (up to 14 BAR or 200psi),” says Mr Grant.
Gorman-Rupp’s stainless steel rotary gear pumps can deliver flows from just a few litres per minute (lpm) up to 930 lpm.
Non-stainless steel models can deliver flows to 2270 lpm and GHA (extreme duty) models are able to handle very abrasive fluids.
