Achema: Gear pumps for difficult resin-handling

A dangerous application is the transfer of all types of resins, including those that contain dicyclopentadiene (DCPD), styrene and methylmethacrylate (MMA). Since many of the chemicals used in resin production are flammable and hazardous to health, any amount of product leakage during their handling and transfer, or their components, cannot be tolerated. These gear pumps meet the needs of this critical hazardous chemical-handling application because of their magnetically driven seal-less design, which eliminates any concern of seal failures that can hamper these types of operations.

Additionally, users of EnviroGearpumps benefit from the simple, one-fluid-chamber design, which features only seven primary parts and an optimized cooling path, as well its patented Eccentric Spindle, which provides between-the-bearing support with no corresponding cantilever load. EnviroGear pumps are also easily interchangeable with competitive models.

EnviroGear® line of internal gear pumps are constructed of carbon steel, ductile iron or stainless steel with flow rates to 200 gpm (757 lpm) at a maximum of 640 rpm. The have a differential-pressure range of 20 to 200 psi (0 to 13.8 bar), can operate in temperatures from -40ºF to 500ºF (-40ºC to 260ºC) and can handle product viscosities from 0.5 to 50,000 cst.
