A world leading Flux design, the highly regarded F 430 drum pump can be used for transferring liquids from small containers, drums, IBCs, vessels or tanks. Two piece construction with mechanical seal ensures the pump can be disassembled into its two main components for cleaning and maintenance in seconds. The mechanical seal stops liquid entering the inner tube. This minimises risk of cross-contamination when transferring the pump between different liquids. The pump can also be used for handling abrasive, crystallizing or high temperature liquids.

Flux F 430 models in polypropylene and PVDF are the most robust pumps of their type, due to their unique steel re-inforced overmoulded inner tubes. The steel cored inner tube also provides optimal support for the mechanical seal, preventing leakage and unnecessary wear across the complete operating temperature range. In addition, the F430 barrel pump is fitted with 5 brass shaft support bearings, providing optimal driveshaft support and resistance to vibration. Special immersion lengths up to 3000 mm are available for sump emptying. Versions in stainless steel and Hastelloy C are ATEX approved for use in hazardous areas . The stainless steel F 430 pump is also available as FOOD certified version.
