Pump Application: Our FDP series positive displacement diaphragm pumps are designed for continuous duty and suitable for a large variety of food processing and industrial work. These pumps are ideal for the large or small contractor and are made expressly for pumping liquids with abrasive quantities in suspension. With no gland to wear, these pumps have a snoring capability therefore these pumps can be run dry, which is most essential in excavation applications. Solidly constructed with a heavy duty aluminum alloy casing and stainless steel inlet/outlets. Available complete with a variety of electric or petrol drive units that are easily maintained for a long service life.
