A Solution for Papermaking with Bleach: Liquiflo’s Poly-Guard PFA Lined Pump

Posted on by Sara Springer

Reduce bleach’s corrosive impact on your papermaking equipment with Liquiflo’s Poly-Guard PFA Lined Pump. 

Bleach, like many chemicals, requires specialized equipment to process it. While sodium hypochlorite is excellent at whitening and disinfecting, it also will react badly with many materials. This forces manufacturers to seek long-lasting, durable solutions that can handle steady flows of raw materials filled with bleach around the clock.  

Liquiflo, a long-time supplier of chemical processing pumps, has created a strong, chemically resistant solution: the Poly-Guard PFA Lined Pump. Ideal for handling any hypochlorite, this nonmetallic gear pump’s lining (PFA) is chemically resistant and does not corrode like competitors’ metal options. This feature eliminates potential housing leakage on the pump, a frequent challenge in the papermaking industry. The lining is also void of carbon fillers, a common ingredient incompatible with bleach or similar fluids. 

Additional features of Liquiflo’s Poly-Guard PFA Lined Pumps: 

  • Can handle 1.4 to 25 GPM 
  • Stainless steel body for safe, strong exterior 
  • Nonmetallic internal components 
  • Sealless Mag-Drive configuration 
  • Nearly pulseless flow (ideal for metering applications) 
  • Nine sizes available 

Typical Chemical applications: Hydrochloric Acid, Ferric Chloride, Sulfuric Acid, Hydrofluoric Acid, Sodium hypochlorite, Nitric Acid, Sodium Hydroxide, Chromic Acid, Fluorosilicic Acid, Hydrogen Bromide, Bromine. 

The Poly-Guard PFA Pump is ruggedly constructed, ideal for rough, dirty, dangerous, corrosive environments, including water treatment facilities, pharmaceutical manufacturing, electronics, food, beverage, and high Purity applications.
