Minichem
ONE-BLOCK PTFE Chemical Pump

The Minchem is a totally new and unique air-operated double diaphragm pump which is machined from one solid block of PTFE, removing the need for separate manifolds and steel casing or ‘box’.
One of the great benefits of this ‘ONE-BLOCK’ approach is that it enhances still further the ease of maintenance benefit which Flotronic’s ‘ONE-NUT’ design so effectively pioneered. Minichem maintenance need only focus on ‘ONE-NUT’ disassembly … and on the ball valves only when necessary.
Only ‘one nut’ to access diaphragms with pump ‘in-line’
Able to handle aggressive chemicals and other products at temperatures up to 80°C
Absence of separate manifolds gives greater pump integrity with fewer parts to go wrong or wear
ATEX approved version available (FDA approved anti-static)

F Series Chemflo virgin and anti-static PTFE pumps

A solid block of virgin or anti-static PTFE housed completely inside an outer metal ‘Pressure Vessel’ of carbon or stainless steel gives inherent safety whilst retaining ‘one nut’ maintenance.
Used for extremely hazardous acids and chemicals where only PTFE can be used and often in pilot plants or as emergency pumps where chemicals are unknown.
The ultimate solid PTFE Double Diaphragm Pump.
A 90º PTFE-lined elbow will fit between the pump legs as shown.
(This part can be supplied by Flotronic if required).
Max operating temp 121ºC (250ºF) with high temp diaphragm (specify H as 6th digit in pump code)

 
Upgrade G
Good food pump
Upgrade G - Good food pump

Applies to pumps with 14" diaphragms.

Designed for either ‘quick strip’ or ‘cleaning in place’ (CIP) and available in either 304 or 316 stainless steels, in a matt or electro-polished finish with a choice of hygienic connections. Designed for ‘tool-free’ maintenance where a strip down and rebuild in ten minutes can be achieved by integral ‘T’ bars and no other tooling. Used for low-shear pumping of viscous and particulate food products. Capable of handling solids up to 25mm (i.e. fruit, vegetable pieces), soups and sauces.
