F/FP 430 Sealed Barrel Pump


Harco offers the FLUX F/FP 430 FOOD barrel pump with mechanical seal that works based on the principle of an axial-flow propeller pump. Its pump unit consists of drive motor and pump. Via a clutch, the motor drives the drive shaft which has a propeller-like impellor attached to its end. Delivery by the pump requires that the impellor is completely covered with the fluid. The fluid is transferred axially due to the rotation, i.e., towards the pump discharge along the pump shaft.

In the FLUX F/FP 430 FOOD sealed barrel pump, the mechanical seal seals the inner tube towards the fluid. In this way, the seal prevents the fluid from getting into the inner tube. The shaft is in contact with the fluid only in the area of the impellor.

The universal FLUX F/FP 430 sealed barrel pump can be used for various media and is suitable for conveying out of drums, totes, IBCs and tanks. Due to the construction, the pump can be easily and quickly taken apart into its two main components. Distinct feature, only at FLUX: The inner tube is reinforced with a metal core on plastic models (PP and PVDF). This always allows full function of the mechanical seal. This way, leakage and unnecessary wear are prevented for the complete operating temperature range. Furthermore, it provides highest stability and makes immersion lengths of up to 118 in (3000 mm) possible. The versions in stainless steel and Hastelloy C are approved for use in hazardous areas. The stainless-steel version is also available as FOOD certified version.

Examples of media -acids, alkalis, flavors and spirits. Models can be used in mobile and fixed installations.
