Wilden Introduces Pumps Designed For Explosive, Hazardous Environments

Effective immediately, Wilden Pump & Engineering Co., Colton, Calif., will offer electrically conductive, graphite-filled Ml polypropylene models. These models have been introduced specifically for explosive and hazardous environments, where nonconductive plastics may be unacceptable due to static electricity discharge.

These graphite-filled models need to be earthed (grounded) at one connection, whereas virgin polypropylene requires grounding at all clamp bands or connection points.

Surface resistance is less than 4 x 10 Ohm, thus providing adequate dispersal of static electricity discharge when pumping nonconductive liquids.

These pumps offer the same advantages as all Wilden air-operated, double-diaphragm pumps: no motors, no seals, no packing, run dry capability, variable speed, variable pressure, explosion resistant, and self priming.
