Flojet Introduces the Ultimate Chemical Resistant Industrial Pump; the New G57C with a Kalrez Perfluoroelastomer Diaphragm
Santa Ana, CA (January 6, 2009) - ITT-Flojet (www.flojet.com), the recognized leader in the industrial pump industry, has just announced the new G57C air operated, industrial pump with a Kalrez® perfluoroelastomer diaphragm from DuPont Performance Elastomers. Engineered for ultimate performance and reliability, this Flojet industrial pump provides long lasting chemical resistance in applications such as chemical transfer, parts washers, ink transfers, and car wash systems.
The robust design of the G57C combined with its innovative features and Flojet's relentless testing allows the pump to provide a long, trouble-free service life. The pump incorporates all the great features and benefits expected from Flojet products - and now it's fitted with Kalrez parts. The uniquely designed check valves incorporate O-rings made from Viton® Extreme(TM) fluoroelastomer. Its high performance capabilities have been combined to accomplish the ultimate in compact air operated, double diaphragm pump technology. The Model G57C Pump can supply up to 5.0 GPM (18.9 /min.) and the high air inlet pressure capability delivers fluid at the needed flow and pressure.
Kalrez parts belong to a class of rubbers called "perfluoroelastomers" meaning that all bond sites on the elastomer backbone and side chains have a fluorine atom bonded to it. This lends the chemical resistance of Teflon® to a rubbery-like material. Kalrez provides the ultimate in chemical resistance in all types of acids, hydrocarbons, amine inhibitors, glycols, and methanol.
The Flojet Model G57C Pump is available now. Contact your local retailer or dealer for more information, or visit us at www.flojet.com.
