The RCE pump is a chemical pump made of metallic materials. It is developed for heavy-duty applications in chemically aggressive and abrasive media with or without a solids content, in chemical processing technology, the primary materials industry and other areas of industry. Typical applications are molten salt, pitch, tar, sulphur, etc.
This video shows details of the RCE series:
The UK-based specialist pump manufacturer Flotronic already had a solution to aggressive chemicals handling requiring a high flow rate – the Chemflo. The challenge was to produce a cost-effective pump that could handle aggressive chemicals and other products at lower flow rates. The new pump also needed to transfer material at temperatures up to 80°C and be ATEX-compliant and ultra-safe. The turning point in developing a solution came from a simple enquiry. Could a pump be machined out of a solid block of PTFE? And so the ‘Minichem’ was born –a n air-operated double diaphragm pump, machined from one solid block of PTFE.
