Latex is a non-Newtonian fluid and is extremely shear sensitive. AxFlow's large UK-based range of positive displacement pumps means that we have serval options when it comes to pumping Latex.


Four basic challenges exist when pumping latex:

  1. Latex emulsions are extremely shear-sensitive, requiring pumps that reliably deliver a low shear rate.
  2. Any contact with air could polymerize the latex, making it imperative that care is taken over the seal arrangement.
  3. The ability to handle liquids with varying viscosities, 
  4. Easy cleanability and maintenance.


AxFlow UK offers a range of technologies with low shear pumping actions and that are either sealess or can be fitted with double mechanical seals.
