Italvalvole® has developed centrifugal pumps and metering pumps initially suited to the textile industry, despite the fact that they are now used in a vast number of industrial sectors.
The IPA axial centrifugal pumps, thanks to the particular construction technique applied, ensure a high degree of reliability in all general heavy-duty uses. They are built in stainless steel and the parts in contact with fluids are in AISI 316, FPM, GRAPHITE (materials that make the product suitable for use with chemically aggressive fluids). The IPA pumps are single stage axial centrifugal type pumps and are electrically powered. The advantages of these pumps are their lightness and minimal bulk, their high resistance to corrosive attacks and almost non-existent maintenance.
The RB series pumps, however, are fixed displacement metering pumps, manufactured in a wide range of models to meet the various dosing needs. The RB pumps are constructed in stainless steel and the parts in contact with fluids are in AISI 316, FPM, PTFE/GRAPHITE (materials that make the pump suitable for use with chemically aggressive fluids).
The RB pumps work with plunger piston, as a result, the use of fluids without suspended elements is recommended (otherwise a filter has to be used), and in applications where leakage through the stuffing box does not lead to dangerous situations. The RB pumps are pneumatically operated and the actuator can be both simple or dual effect; furthermore, the discharge operation is performed once per cycle. Accurate dosing and the quality of the materials make our pumps safe and reliable. Our RB metering pumps can be used in various fields where constant and precise dosing (chemical, dyeing, etc.) is required. )
