The new Micro C-Series Eccentric Disc pump line was designed for transferring and dosing additives in continuous processing applications. The line is ideal for handling thin, abrasive, aggressive and higher viscosity fluids due to its low contact piston speed and direct contact between the piston and cylinder. It has dry running capabilities for self-priming with strong suction lift and is also designed to be flushed and cleaned in place. With its stainless steel construction and gentle, low-shear handling of fluids, it is ideal for numerous chemical process and metering applications.

The 800 Series pumps for hygienic, high-performance applications in the food industry are suitable for handling dairy, bakery, cereal, beverage and confectionary products with care and ease. To maintain the purity of the pumping product, the pumphead has no valves, is self-priming, and can run dry without incurring damage. The low-shear action of the 800 Series ensures consistent product quality with no siphoning or slip, providing accuracy of up to + 0.5 percent when handling flavorings, colorings and additives.

The new ProFlo pump has ANSI specifications, including positive sealing, a fully confined gasket at casing joint that protects alignment from liquid and a 1-in. oil sight glass. Maximum shaft deflection is less than .002in. (.05mm) at face of the stuffing box, which ensures long seal and bearing life and low maintenance. A hook-type shaft sleeve (available in a wide variety of corrosion-resistant materials) is free to expand with temperature variation. Its high efficiency is maintained by impeller adjustment resulting in long term energy savings.
