Leading Australian pump supplier Global Pumps has introduced a new pump from Techniflo that can mix the process fluid while pumping.
Techniflo’s new mixing drum pumps can be used in situations where it is necessary to both mix and pump at the same time. Ideal for transferring emulsions, dispersions or suspensions that have a tendency to separate, these pumps are available with a variety of air or electric motors to meet diverse application needs.
Techniflo’s mixing drum pumps are available with a tube shaft made from polypropylene or stainless steel. The polypropylene model is primarily used for aggressive fluids such as acids, alkalis and cleaning reagents, while the stainless steel model is designed for neutral, mildly corrosive or flammable materials.
The wide choice offered in these pumps in terms of models and motors allows customers to select the right pump for their specific liquid transfer needs. Pump models are also available that allow mixing/pumping in hazardous locations.
Techniflo’s mixing drum pumps feature a manual actuator that helps select the pump-only mode or the mix-pump mode. In the mix-pump mode, the flow rate, viscosity and density of the process fluid determine the transfer rate of the fluid and the mixing intensity.
