Billingham, UK - Richter Chemie-Technik has launched a new range of PFA (polytetrafluoro ethylene)-lined, mechanically sealed pumps, aimed at the mid-range of the process industries market.
The pumps can be used for polyurethane processing, as well as other types of chemical, petrochemical and pharmaceutical processing.
"[Richter] has identified a gap in the market for mid-range pumps which previously would have necessitated the use of a higher specification model than was actually necessary," said Colin Simpson, sales director at UK distributors, Billingham-based Tomlinson Hall Ltd.
The new RSI and RSA pumps incorporate PFA lining to provide the highest chemical resistance at temperatures from -30° C to 150° C and full FDA conformity, according to an 18 Oct news release from Tomlinson Hall.
The company added that the pumps can also handle liquids containing solids and have flow ranges from between 0.1 - 120m3/hr with delivery heads up to 100m.
