Vanton vertical thermoplastic sump pumps are engineered for dependable handling of corrosive, abrasive, hazardous and toxic process fluids and plant effluents over broad temperature and pH ranges. These rugged pumps are widely used for processing, environmental controls and water/wastewater treatment throughout the chemical, textile, pharmaceutical, pulp and paper, semiconductor, electroplating and other manufacturing industries, as well as in utilities and municipal water treatment facilities.

All fluid contact components are injection molded or fabricated of homogeneous polypropylene (PP), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) or polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) — corrosion resistant thermoplastics that are chemically inert to the fluids they are specified to handle. The heavy-duty stainless steel shaft is completely isolated from the fluid by a thick-sectioned thermoplastic sleeve. No metal is in contact with the pumped fluid, making these pumps additionally suitable for handling of high purity water, reagent grade chemicals, and other fluids that must remain contamination free.

The rugged construction of these heavy-duty sump pumps assures dependable service. Vanton's unique design automatically compensates for the different expansion rates between the metal shaft and plastic column. This prevents impeller binding even under wide temperature fluctuations. The solid, thick-sectioned thermoplastic wet end components are significantly lighter than metal, resulting in the ease of pump installation or removal and preventative maintenance.

In addition to conventional stationary installations, Vanton thermoplastic pumps can be skid mounted for portability within the plant, or floated on pontoons for use in open ponds.

Vanton offers the widest variety of thermoplastic vertical pump designs and configurations, and the most extensive experience in the industry. Our innovative engineering department is at your disposal to modify existing designs, or discuss entirely new configurations to meet your specific needs.

This pump available with recessed Vortex impeller for slurries and fluids containing stringy materials or solids to 2 in. (51 mm) in diameter.
