Many people might not know the importance of pumps. They are a necessity in many industries and are even important in day to day activities. Removing liquids from drums is so much easier with pumping technology. Now we are able to pump, store, and transfer even the most dangerous of liquids.
The chemical industry benefits more from successful pumping because of the importance of what is being stored, pumped and transferred. The U.S. is the largest producer of chemical products in the world and the chemical value is approximately $770 billion. The Bureau of Economic Analysis reports that U.S. chemistry alone brings in a quarter of a billion dollars every year.
Diesel exhaust fluid pumps allow safe pumping, storage, and transfer of exhaust fluid, which is needed for many reasons.
There are six components of diesel exhaust fluid pumps:
- Electric Motor — These electric drum pump motors are used specifically for corrosive situations. They are able to transfer acidic liquids and alkalis. Each electric motor comes with speed control options along with multiple certifications and a thermal overload button. They also have a maximum discharge pressure of 32 PSI.
- Pneumatic Motor — Pneumatic motors can also be used in highly corrosive environments but were specifically engineered for use when heavily aggressive fumes are in the air. These motors are best suited to transfer combustible and flammable liquids.
- Flow Meter — Flow meters can be used across a wide range of applications: from stationary liquids to aggressive chemicals. They use a paddle wheel design and come in various sizes and materials. Kits for chemical drum pumps, permanent installation kits, and barb connection kits are all flow meter options.
- Hose — Diesel exhaust fluid pumps need high quality hoses for safe transfer. These hoses have been specifically engineered to safely and accurately transfer liquids of all kinds. The hoses are able to work in temperatures ranging from -40 degrees Fahrenheit to 212 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Nozzle — Along with the hoses, the nozzles for these pumps have to be top of the line as well. They have to be able to safely dispense all liquids without any spills or issues. These nozzles have an automatic shutoff switch that will happen when the tank is reaching maximum capacity.
- Pump Tube — The tube itself can be used on anything from small drums to large tanks. Pumping corrosive liquids without error is important for safety as well as the importance of the product. These tubes can ensure safe and accreting pumping.
