SMC launches abrasive resistant process pump
A new polypropylene type pump from SMC has been designed to withstand the harshest manufacturing processes, delivering production reliability that lead to cost and energy savings.
The PA5000 process pump from SMC is so abrasion resistant that it is guaranteed a long life managing at least 50 million cycles.
Thanks to its polypropylene body, it can withstand the corrosive effects of moving water, acids and alkali fluids. The PA5000 also uses up to 53 percent less air to generate energy savings.
Its clever design also features no sliding parts in wetted areas, which not only reduces particle generation but makes it easy to clean, as well as simple and quick to maintain, saving both time and money.
A spokesperson from SMC said: “At SMC we are always looking at ways to improve our solutions to deliver enhanced performance and reliability. Our new process pump does just that – it’s durable and robust, offering long lasting efficiencies and flexibility in difficult operating conditions.”
The PA5000 is adaptable and suitable for a range of industry sectors including water treatment, pulp and paper, chemical, semi-conductor, machine tool and print, paint and varnish applications. It is compact and lightweight but achieves high dispensing volume and self-primes, making it an all-round flexible and reliable component.
