News You Can Use Vol. 2

Finish Thompson is always looking for ways to expand our existing product lines. To that end, we have recently enhanced our drum pump line to provide additional options for our customers.

New PF Series 54”/137cm tube length is ideally suited for 330 gallon/1,250 liter totes (IBC’s). IBC stands for Intermediate Bulk Container and these are primarily plastic containers in a supporting wire cage that store either five or six barrels of liquid. The 330 gallon version holds six barrels. IBC’s are used because they help consolidate storage and reduce cost for users. The new lengths better accommodates these larger totes and are available in PFM/PFP/PFV/PFS versions to allow for the maximum application flexibility.

PFS-P Drum Pumps with Perlast Elastomers are now manufactured with FDA Compliant Materials. Sales has been getting more frequent requests for applications involving products like flavorings, food coloring and other additives that are dissolved in alcohol or other solvents, the PFS with Perlast o-rings has been modified and are now manufactured with FDA compliant materials to handle these applications. There is no change to the price or model number. This provides an additional choice for customers who require FDA Compliant Materials and compliments the PFS-B, PFS-BTC, HVDP and STTS models already available in FDA Compliant Materials.

Buttress Thread Plastic Bung Adapter for PF Series is available. We now have an inexpensive bung adapter with buttress threads for the PF Series. Manufactured out of molded polypropylene, it is ideal for plastic drums with buttress thread openings and allows the PF tube to be held in an upright position. Part number is 110424.
