CDR Pumps Add Polymer Baseplate Option


CDR Pumps, the chemical process pump manufacturer, has added a polymer concrete baseplate to complement their extensive range of pumps for the corrosive chemical Industry.

The epoxy resin based concrete offers excellent corrosion resistance to the harshest of atmospheres, a problem often encountered with the traditional fabricated steel and Cast Iron baseplates used throughout Industry. The manufacturing process results in an extremely flat surface to ensure optimum pump and motor allignment, and contributes towards reduced vibration.

The units are moulded with an integral drip pan, of which can be piped away through a PVC connector, come complete with grouting hole and levelling tappings and can be stilt mounted to avoid surface preperation and grouting.

"While we can offer pumps in many material options to avoid corrosion, it goes without saying that the environments where pumps are placed is also extremely harsh, it is common to see external lined pipework, structural steel and pump bases suffering from extreme corrosion over a period of time. These baseplates offer a fantastic opportunity to eliminate the costly problems associsted with surface treatments, as well as providing a better surface for pump mounting and alignment to ensure maximum effective operational life" says Ashley Fenn, MD, CDR Pumps (UK) Ltd
