How to Choose the Right Chemical Transfer Pump for Your Application

The following are some important factors to consider when choosing a pumps for your application:

  • Materials of construction: Iwaki offers both Stainless Steel and lined magnetic drive pumps. Acids like hydrochloric and sulfuric acid are corrosive in nature. Hence, when choosing a pump you must check their compatibility with the chemical being pumped. Our MDM series chemical pumps are designed for transferring chemicals like sulfuric acid and bleach. They feature corrosion resistant ETFE and PFA internals. Iwaki Stainless Steel pumps are ideal for higher temperature applications.
  • Performance Specifications: The performance of a pump depends on factors like flow, pressure, and maximum operating temperature. For instance, our MDM series pumps are designed for capacities up to 350 GPM and temperatures up to up to 300°F; MXM series pumps can handle capacities up to 146 GPM, and MDW series up to 1320 GPM.
  • Type of Fluid Being Transferred: Chemical transfer pumps are designed for transferring different types of fluids, such as acids, caustics at a variety of temperatures. When pumping fluids with solids ensure to choose a pump that can handle solids. For instance, if your application features up to 10% solids, you can consider MDM pumps equipped with a specialty bearing for slurries.
  • Quality Standards: All Iwaki pumps are manufactured to ISO9001 standards.
