York Fluid Controls supplies a pump lineup like no other, including drum pumps by FLUX. A prime example is the FLUX F 424 sealless drum pump, the best drum pump on the market, with special design features that are superior to any competitor’s offering. From repressed coupling and flat gasket seals to strong bearing protection, this pump has everything that it needs to give unparalleled performance every time.
For transferring high flammability solvents
Perfect for transferring high flammability solvents, the FLUX F 424 is also suitable for liquids that do not glue or crystallize and for safe dry running. This unit prevents any mixtures of the fluids it pumps, with no wear on the seal’s inner tube and helix-shaped support bearings that are fully self-draining. The liquid that the shaft lubricants pump never gets contaminated, and the ideal impeller design enables optimum barrel emptying.
Users can strip this sealless drum pump for cleaning with minimal effort. The inner tube supports the pump shaft, which the fluid lubricates, and the liquid level in the inner tube always corresponds to the level in the container or barrel. The 316 stainless steel model is tested and certified according to ATEX safety standards for use in Zone 0. The F 424 is also available from York Fluid Controls in polypropylene or polyvinylidenfluoride. Standard immersion lengths are 27, 39, 47, and 60 inches, with other options available on request.
Among the other special design features that make this sealless drum pump stand out: repressed coupling, protected when the motor is removed; flat gasket seal; 24-millimetre heavy-duty bearings that support the impeller shaft; union nuts, which eliminates breakage; large-diameter drive shaft with virtually no deflection at high speeds; Hastelloy-C drive shaft for higher resistance and strength and to avoid misapplication; two heavy-duty radial shaft lip seals, to protect bearings from fumes; screw-on foot piece for higher durability; low bearing housing for longer wear life, heat dissipation, and shaft lubrication; and standard ETFE impellers.
These design features make the F 424 stronger, longer-lasting, and safer than other drum pumps are.
