Thompson expands AODD pump range
15 February 2017
Thompson have expanded their range of FTI air-operated double diaphragm (AODD) pumps with the addition of two larger metallic models. The new FT30A and FT30S AODD pumps (in stainless steel and aluminium) have a maximum flow rate of 908 liters/min and maximum discharge pressure of 8.3 bar.
The new FTI models have been designed to extend the capabilities of these pumps and bring the important benefits of using AODD units to a wider range of pumping applications. The pumps are suited to handling abrasive, viscous and shear-sensitive liquid or ‘dirty’ liquids with particles up to 12mm.
New features of the FT30A and FT30S units include a ‘lube-free’ air valve design, a low friction slide valve on a ceramic plate, and superior sealing and a moulded Buna gasket, which aims to ensure total sealing and eliminate flat gasket tearing.
