Thorite launch air operated diaphragm pump ranges

Monday 4th April 2005

New ranges of compact, air operated diaphragm pumps from SMC are now available from compressed air and fluid processing systems specialists, Thorite.

The self priming PB range features BSP ports and built-in solenoid valve or air operation. The design provides high capacity performance and high abrasion resistance, with low particle generation.

Construction is from polypropylene with a stainless steel body and PTFE diaphragm and check valve, making it compatible with a wide variety of fluids.

For higher discharge rates there is a choice between the PA range, which has 3/8" BSP ports, or the PAX series, with 1/4" or 3/8" BSP ports. Both ranges feature automatic operation with internal switching. There is a choice in the construction of the pumps' body material, which can be specified in stainless steel or aluminium, depending on the nature of the fluids to be handled.

Typical end users for these small yet superbly engineered pumps include the printing industry and dosing applications in textile production, chemicals manufacturing, food and pharmaceuticals processing.

The new pumps are available from Thorite's National Distribution Centre on freephone 0800 034 5800, with full details via the company's website or from any of their eight regional Sales and Service Centres.
