Xylem, the recognised leader in the industrial pump industry, has just announced the launch of the new G70C air operated, industrial pump with a Kalrez® perfluoroelastomer diaphragm and ATEX approval to II 2G C IIB TX. Engineered for ultimate performance and reliability, this Flojet industrial pump provides long lasting chemical resistance in applications such as chemical transfer, parts washers, ink transfers, and car wash systems.
The robust design of the G70C combined with its innovative features and Flojet's relentless testing allows the pump to provide a long, trouble-free service life. The pump incorporates all the great features and benefits expected from Flojet products - and now it's fitted with Kalrez parts. The uniquely designed check valves incorporate O-rings made from Viton® extreme TM fluoroelastomer. Its high performance capabilities have been combined to accomplish the ultimate in compact air operated, double diaphragm pump technology. The G70C pump can supply up to 5.0 GPM (18.9 /min.) and the high air inlet pressure capability delivers fluid at the required flow and pressure.
Kalrez parts belong to a class of rubbers called "perfluoroelastomers" meaning that all bond sites on the elastomer backbone and side chains have a fluorine atom bonded to it. This lends the chemical resistance of PFTE to a rubbery- like material. Kalrez provides the ultimate in chemical resistance in all types of acids, hydrocarbons, amine inhibitors, glycols, and methanol.
The Flojet G57C Pump is available now. Contact your local retailer or dealer for more information, or visit us at www.flojetnews.com.
