Depending on the application, CSF-CS and CSA pumps can be supplied with an internal or external single mechanical seal or flushed double mechanical seal for handling high

temperature liquids or those with a tendency to crystallise. Elastomers are available in a choice of Viton, EPDM, silicon or PTFE. Typical applications for CSF-CS pumps include handling sugar solutions, alcohols, beer, CIP solutions, milk, oils, vinegar, fruit juices, high purity water, suspensions, yeast and melted butter.

The LKN series is dry run capable and self priming, and like other chemical metering pumps it is designed to move a variety of aggressive fluids such as alcohols, caustic, bleach, peroxide and sulphuric acid, as well as tough slurries. The LKN features a small footprint that will allow installation into the tightest of areas. It comes equipped with a dual cam design for increased reliability and a heavy duty spring back mechanism that promotes long life.
