The Finish Thompson (FTI) SP series of magnetic drive, self-priming centrifugal pumps has been extended following the addition of two models, which are now available from Michael Smith Engineers.

The SP10 and SP22 pumps provide maximum flow rates of 12m3/hr and 45m3/hr and maximum discharge heads of 13m and 37m, respectively.

FTI SP pumps are said to be able to withstand the rigours of the most challenging applications.

SP pumps combine deep-lift capabilities (up to 7.6m) and fast priming (5.5m in 90s) with the advantages of magnetic drive technology, such as no seals to replace, no leaks and the capability to run dry without damage.

As well as their lift and high working pressure capabilities, the pumps are suited to handling fluids with high specific gravities up to 1.8, such as sulphuric acid, phosphoric acid and sodium and potassium hydroxide.

Reliable, low maintenance and safe operation is also assured with the SP Series magnetic drive technology, according to FTI.

The pumps are available in a choice of polypropylene or PVDF to provide a durable, corrosion-resistant pump.

Maximum operating temperatures are 82C for the polypropylene version and 104C for the PVDF version.

SP Series pumps can be mounted to most standard motors, while NPT or BSP threads, adjustable flanges or union connections allow them to connect to most process systems.

Typical applications include sump emptying, transferring from underground storage tanks and tanker trucks, pumping in systems that are liable to have trapped or entrained air or in process systems where run-dry protection is needed.
