Finish Thompson Inc. Highlights DB10 Sealless Plastic Centrifugal Pumps for Pulp and Paper Applications

Engineered for performance and proven in the field

Finish Thompson Inc. (FTI), an international leader in the corrosive chemical transfer industry, highlights its DB10 sealless plastic centrifugal pump, ideal for transferring corrosive chemicals in pulp and paper applications. With its unique, industry-leading five-year warranty, the DB10 pump offers the best efficiency of any pump in its class and can run dry for hours without damage, when equipped with a carbon bushing.

For pulp and paper applications, the DB10 helps load/unload chemicals from trucks and rail cars. It also transfers chemicals to storage facilities and mixing tanks. The DB10 pump can transfer chemicals like sodium hypochlorite, sodium hydroxide, hydrogen peroxide, sulfuric acid, and various dyes in processes such as washing, bleaching, digesting, and coloring.

The DB10 is certified under CE (Conformité Européenne), UKCA (UK Conformity Assessment), and EAC (Eurasian Conformity). Also available are models that comply with ATEX (equipment for potentially explosive atmospheres) standards.

The DB10 pump is engineered for performance, with a close-coupled design, corrosion resistant polypropylene or polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) construction, and powerful neodymium magnets mounted to the motor shaft on every model. Featuring a sealless mag drive and a replaceable shaft and bushing, the pump mounts to NEMA and IEC motor frames without the need for disassembly. The design eliminates the need for maintenance, flushing, or periodic seal replacement. The risk of leaks, vapor emission, or exposure to corrosive chemicals is virtually eliminated.

The DB10 pump is equipped with 1.5-inch suction and discharge ports, available in NPT or BSP threaded or flanged connections. It offers a maximum working pressure of 80 pounds per square inch (PSI)/5.5 bar, and a high maximum specific gravity of more than 1.8. Connection types, O-ring, and bushing materials can be ordered to meet application-specific requirements.
