In the late 1980’s the development of the Pumps 2000 started to create a new alternative to the heavy 80 kilogram-plus cast-iron diaphragm pumps that were predominantly used in Australian mines. Focus was on the reduction of pump mass as well as improving the pump life and performance.
With past experience in plastics the first 2inch(50mm) Pumps 2000 air operated double diaphragm pumps were made from machined nylon and weighed approximately 34 kg. As well as reducing the pump mass they also developed and patented a new air motor component and diaphragm design which greatly outperformed and outlasted all others.
With the need to decrease production time and cost the machined nylon parts were superseded by injection moulded parts after the creation of over 20 dies. This gave the ability to further reduce pump mass with the use of ribbing for strength and the elimination of excess material. The use of injection moulding has also led to lubrication free pumps and the development of FRASplas® a fire retardant anti-static plastic blend.
We regularly sell pumps at up to 50% off list price.
