Vanton Pumps (Europe) Limited
About this exhibitor
We not only pioneered the thermoplastic pump, we perfected it. In 1950, Vanton developed a revolutionary all-plastic pump for use in conjunction with the first heart-lung device. The design limited fluid contact to only two non-metallic parts: a plastic body block and a flexible liner. This was the birth of our Flex-I-Liner rotary pump. Its self-priming sealless design made it an industry standard for the handling of corrosive, abrasive, and viscous fluids as well as those that must be transferred without contaminating the product.
We then developed horizontal and vertical centrifugal pumps designed to take advantage of the superior chemical inertness, abrasion resistance, low weight, and moldability of thermoplastics. Vanton now offers the most comprehensive line of thermoplastic pumps in the industry. We put our pumps through the paces to make sure they live up to expectations.
When they leave our plant, we know they are best by test, not by guess. To the best of our knowledge, no other pump manufacturer puts every pump through such a complete battery of hydraulic, vibration, and electrical tests.
Vanton pumps are subjected to the following test wherever appropriate:
1. Hydrostatic test for leak tightness.
2. Operational check of pump performance to specified conditions of service.
3. Vibration evaluation.
4. Noise level analysis.
5. Measurement of voltage, amperage, kilowatts, and power factor at varying outputs.
Sometimes the simplest designs yield the most efficient products. Don’t be misled by the apparent simplicity of the design of Vanton pumps. Uncomplicated construction makes our pumps more cost-effective and easier to maintain.
Fluid contact is limited to chemically inert thermoplastics and elastomers. Extensive component interchangeability permits a wide choice of available materials and the use of many new ones as they are developed. Why engineered thermoplastics are specified for handling corrosive, abrasive, hazardous, and ultrapure fluids: Thermoplastic components are preferred over stainless steel, exotic alloys, FRP solid materials, or linings because they offer broader use for handling acids, caustics, solvents, chlorides, halogens, and other corrosive, abrasive or hazardous fluids, even mixed or unknown liquids, plant effluents, and waste streams.
Their chemical inertness assures purity when handling ultrapure water and other fluids required by chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturers, printed circuit board fabricators, utilities, and other companies whose processing operations cannot tolerate contamination.
Although extensive corrosion resistance charts are available from Vanton and other sources, there is no substitute for experience and no company with as much experience in the application of thermoplastic pumps as Vanton.
