AxFlow UK have numerous pumps manufactured from ETFE
ETFE pumps (Ethylene tetrafluorothylene) are fluorine based plastics, equipped with a high melting point and excellent chemical, electrical and high energy radiation resistance property. ETFE has superior impact strength, abrasion and cut through resistance than PTFE. ETFE pumps have a working temperature range of -50°C to 100°C.
Carbon filled ETFE-C is the material of choice for many ATEX rated pumps as the carbon makes the material electrically conductive.
ETFE has several benefits that makes it an ideal pump material;
- Excellent resistance to extremes of temperature
- Chemical resistance
- Strong resistance to weathering and aging
- Outstanding mechanical strength; its superior to many other fluoropolymers.
