Finish Thompson Inc. (FTI; Erie, PA) highlights its DB10 sealless plastic centrifugal pump, ideal for transferring corrosive chemicals in water and wastewater, electronics, pharmaceutical, wet scrubber, and pulp and paper pump applications. With its unique, industry-leading five-year warranty, the DB10 pump offers the best efficiency of any pump in its class and can run dry for hours without damage, when equipped with a carbon bushing.
The DB10 pump is engineered for performance, with a close-coupled design, corrosion resistant polypropylene or polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) construction, and powerful neodymium magnets mounted to the motor shaft on every model. Featuring a sealless mag drive and a replaceable shaft and bushing, the pump mounts to NEMA and IEC motor frames without the need for disassembly. The design eliminates the need for maintenance, flushing, or periodic seal replacement. The risk of leaks, vapor emission, or exposure to corrosive chemicals is virtually eliminated.
The DB10 pump is equipped with 1.5-inch suction and discharge ports, available in NPT or BSP threaded or flanged connections. It offers a maximum working pressure of 80 pounds per square inch (PSI)/5.5 bar, and a high maximum specific gravity of more than 1.8. Connection types, O-ring and bushing materials can be ordered to meet application-specific requirements.
