The latest addition to the ARO® portfolio offers a conductive polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) wetted part driven by the advanced EXP pneumatic motor technology.
Available in 1-inch and 2-inch port sizes, the new Conductive PVDF Pump complements the existing range of ARO® process pumps. It offers the lowest downtime and lowest cost of ownership in highly critical applications, which include handling corrosive chemicals in hazardous duty environments.
PVDF is well suited for a variety of industries and applications, including:*
ARO® EXP air operated diaphragm pumps with bolted PVDF and conductive PVDF (CPVDF) wetted parts offer best in class features for transferring corrosive and dangerous chemicals. They are well suited for applications in hazardous environments, such as ATEX Group II 2GD X**, and suitable for use in NEC/CEC Class I & II, Div 1 & 2, Groups A-D environments.
In most cases, ARO® EXP pumps with PVDF or CPVDF wetted parts offer a better alternative to diaphragm pump models that rely on machined polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) or conductive PTFE (CPTFE) construction:
Replacing a solid machined PTFE pump with an EXP series PVDF pump can increase uptime and lower the total cost of ownership substantially due to its unmatched combination of Performance, Reliability, Automation, Safety and Sustainability.
*In the majority of applications, PVDF would offer similar chemical compatibility to PTFE. Check our Chemical Compatibility Guide for exceptions before recommending or installing a pump.
