DEPA® Air Operated Diaphragm Pumps
The DEPA® Air Operated Diaphragm Pumps are designed to meet all kinds of requirements in chemical, pharmaceutical, coatings, paint, sanitary, food and many other applied fluid applications. Featuring cast metal, stainless steel, non-metallic and PTFE body materials, these pumps provides reliability, efficiency, and transfer control for liquid and sheer sensitive materials. The pumps can handle viscous and, abrasive products, often in aggressive conditions and the most demanding applications. Developed as a flexible and modular design, this product covers all product ranges and pump sizes, reducing both the spare parts holding, as well as the number of individual parts used per pump. Crane is the only AOD pumps manufacturer worldwide that offers pumps for applications in potentially hazardous and explosive environments, being ATEX certified in zone 0 (Group II 1 G).
Newest Addition: DEPA Nopped S4® Diaphragm
Featuring a flexible “nopped” surface, which refers to a uniform sequence of small mounds radiating in a band located medially within the diaphragm, the DEPA S4® Diaphragm is a versatile, state of the art industry solution. Its enhanced flexibility and durability to abrasion are a result of not only this surface design, but also the use of Santoprene as its core material, a substance combining rubber polymer (EPDM) and polypropylene. Santoprene®, a registered trademark of Exxon Mobil, offers resistance to mild acids, as well as some solvents and bases, and contributes to a long lifetime in cold and warm environments. The resulting efficiency and reliability of the S4 Diaphragm saves on energy and time costs, respectively. The DEPA S4® Diaphragm is in compliance with Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. It can operate within a temperature range of -4° F to 230° F (-20° C to +110° C), and a maximum 7 bar operating pressure.
DEPA AirSave System
The DEPA AirSave System improves energy efficiency and service life of the pump. The system operates with virtually no leakage at a low start up pressure; provides lower costs of operation, high service, and maintenance friendliness. The DEPA AirSave System is available for a broad range of applications in DEPA pump sizes.
ELRO® Peristaltic Pumps
ELRO® peristaltic pumps for mobile and industrial applications have been viewed as indispensable in the positive displacement pumps market, serving industries such as the chemical, building, environmental and power industries. These pumps can transfer all kinds of abrasive, viscose and shear sensitive media and are also suitable for potentially hazardous environments. As installed or portable units, ELRO pumps provide easy operation and servicing, using one wear item only.
