Plastic pumps feature the chemical resistance properties different than those of metallic pumps. They can be more cost-effective options for fluid processing. Plastic pumps PTFE, TEFLON, PVDF KYNAR, Polypropylene, Groundable Acetal, Glass Filled Nylon are also more lightweight and thus more portable than their metallic counterparts. The plastic pumps also prevent liquid contamination. In magnetic drive pumps specifically, plastic construction is far more efficient.
Plastic Pumps: Consider Fluid Requirements
As with all pumps, it is important to consider what types of fluids the plastic pumps will be handling. Plastic pumps have many benefits, but there are a few downsides to using these products. Plastic pumps are less impact resistant than alloy pumps and have limited pressure ratings. However, plastic pumps can handle both lower and higher temperature requirements.
