Pump/Tank Carts Handle Caustic and Acidic Chemicals

Nov. 9, 2011
Vanton mobile carts transfer fluids without corrosion or contamination.

Vanton Pump and Equipment has introduced a non-metallic Mobile Pump/Tank Cart capable of transferring wastewater and caustic/acidic chemicals with no corrosion, and ultrapure fluids with no contamination. The tank, base plate, and secondary containment chamber are made of solid polypropylene, polyethylene, PVC or other inert thermoplastic to prevent chemical attacks.

In addition, Vanton’s new mobile Pump/Tank Cart features a rigid body block that is molded of solid polypropylene, UHMW polyethylene, or PTFE, and a flexible liner made with natural rubber, neoprene, Hypalon, Viton or Nordel, which is capable of reducing the corrosion and ionization that is often associated with metal pumps.

Using a Flex-I-Liner model CC-PY12B pump with a rotor mounted on an eccentric shaft, fluid is pushed between a flexible elastomer liner and solid thermoplastic body block at flows to 2 gpm (7.6 lpm), pressures to 25 psig (1.72 bar) and temperatures to 185 degrees Fahrenheit (85 degrees Celsius). Pumps are designed with no seals or valves that can leak or become clogged, and they also can run dry without damage.
