F 430 / FP 430

Drum pump with mechanical seal

  • Ideal for frequent medium changes, hardening media, fast drying media, crystallizing media
  • Can be taken apart into main components easily and quickly for cleaning
  • With mechanical seal for sealing the inner tube
  • The inner tube reinforced with metal core on plastic models prevents leakage and unnecessary wear of the mechanical seal in all operating temperature ranges.
  • High stability of the pumps in plastic version enables immersion lengths of up to 3000 mm even here
  • FOOD versions conform EC 1935/2004 and FDA CFR 21 for contact with food available

The universal Drum pump with mechanical seal F/FP 430 can be used for various media and is suitable for conveying out of drums, IBCs or tanks. Due to the construction with mechanical seal, the pump can be easily and quickly taken apart into its two main components. This allows good cleanability. Distinct feature, only at FLUX: The inner tube is reinforced with a metal core on plastic models (PP and PVDF). This always allows full function of the mechanical seal. This way, leakage and unnecessary wear are prevented for the complete operating temperature range. Furthermore, it provides highest stability and makes immersion lengths of up to 3 000 mm possible. The versions in stainless steel and hastelloy C are ex-protected. The stainless steel version is also available as FOOD certified version.

The maximum delivery rate is a test bench value, measured with water at 20°C at the pressure port of the pump, without accessories (hose, nozzle, flow meter). The practically achievable delivery rate is lower. It depends on the individual application, the fluid properties and the pump configuration. Please refer to technical data sheets / performance diagrams.
