Double Diaphragm Pump
This Double Diaphragm Pump design, unique to Flotronic, takes pump performance far beyond traditional style pumps. The fast maintenance concept literally turns the conventional pump inside out! Fluid passes between the diaphragms directly through the centre of the pump with air pressure operating on the outside. The pump is held together by one nut on the opposite side of the pump to the external air valve.
This unique pump design allows in-line diaphragm replacement to be accomplished in less than 15 minutes, with a complete stripdown and rebuild possible in less than 20 minutes. Using One-Nut pumps, engineers can significantly reduce process downtime and provide vast savings in maintenance costs, without compromising on pump performance.
Diaphragm lifetime is now so good, these pumps are often used instead of centrifugal or other process pumps.
Genuine spare parts for Flotronic Pumps are only available from Flotronic pumps. Any other spare parts supplier is not using spare parts recommended by Flotronic Pumps. To ensure long life and maintain your warranty, make sure you only order your spare parts from Flotronic Pumps.
Other suppliers may use inferior manufacturers or materials. They certainly do not manufacture from the original technical specifications and drawings. Although short-term cost savings may be apparent, in the longer term you may find you are replacing parts more regularly, or even damaging the pump.
For peace of mind make sure you use only genuine Flotronic Pump Spares.
ATEX Directive 94/9/EC is a European directive that came into force on 1st July 2003
The directive covers the design of all products used in potentially explosive atmospheres.
As such, ATEX will impact on numerous industrial sectors and on the equipment that is installed in these areas.
Are you ready for ATEX?
FPL 'One Nut' range can be manufactured in anti-static PTFE and polypropylene, stainless steel, PVC and PVDF, with anti-static diaphragms, balls and seals. All pumps have entirely stainless steel, non-wetted surface casings with the addition of earthing straps and lugs and has been Independently ATEX certified.
ATEX certified FPL 'One Nut' pumps carry the proof of this compliance. Each pump is marked legibly and indelibly with FPL's name and address, the CE mark and number of the notified Body, series or type designation of the pump, specific Ex logo, year of manufacture and serial number.
We have recently been awarded Gas Group II C accreditation as we are now able to supply pumps which can be used in an environment where acetylene and hydrogen are present and where more stringent anti-static regulations apply. Whatever level of compliance required within Gas Group II (ie: A, B or C) we can supply a compliant pump.
You can be sure of ATEX compliance with FPL
