Vanton Pump's Sump-Gard model SGK-2700 thermoplastic centrifugal pump expands flow ranges to 1200 gmp at heads to 200 feet
Vanton Pump introduces the Sump-Gard model SGK-2700 thermoplastic centrifugal pump, which handles flows to 1200 gpm (4500 lpm) at heads to 200 feet (60 meters).
All wetted components are molded of solid Polypropylene, PVDF or CPVC to eliminate chemical attacks associated with the pumping of process fluids, plant effluents, and industrial/municipal water and waste streams, while minimizing abrasion. Since all wetted surfaces are chemically inert, the pumps are also rated for handling reagent-grade chemicals, high purity water and other fluids that must remain contamination free.
The alloy shaft, which is isolated from fluid contact by a thick-sectioned thermoplastic sleeve, transfers torque from a 125 hp (93 kW) motor and can employ a balanced 14-inch (356-millimeter) 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. The thermoplastic pumps weigh less than pumps of equivalent capacity constructed of stainless steel, Hastelloy, Monel or other metal alloys, facilitating installation and ease of maintenance
