The Sump-Gard model SGK-2700 thermoplastic centrifugal pump handles flows to 4,500 lpm (1,200 gpm) at heads to 60 m (200 ft).
All wetted components of the SGK-2700 from Vanton Pumps are molded of solid Polypropylene, PVDF or CPVC to eliminate chemical attack associated with pumping of process fluids, plant effluents and industrial/municipal water and waste streams, while minimising abrasion. Since all wetted surfaces are chemically inert, the pumps are also rated for handling reagent grade chemicals, high purity water and other fluids which must remain contamination free.
The alloy shaft, which is isolated from fluid contact by a thick-sectioned thermoplastic sleeve, transfers torque from a 93 kW (125 hp) motor and can employ a balanced 356 mm (14 in) diameter impeller.
The pump’s large diameter cantilevered shaft eliminates the necessity for any immersed bearings and permits dependable operation for short or extended periods of dry run operation, with no damage to the pump.
Applications for the SGK-series pumps from Vanton Pumps include effluent collection and evacuation, transfer and circulation of chemicals or waste resulting in minimized maintenance costs and maximized MTBR.
