No Power? No Problem for Rechargeable Drum Pump Motor

16.01.2013

The ability to transfer fluids safely and cleanly from drums and barrels even when an electrical or air supply to power a pump is not available, would, in certain applications be a distinct advantage. Thanks to the introduction of a new rechargeable drum pump motor this is now possible.

No Power? No Problem for Rechargeable Drum Pump Motor

Michael Smith Engineers

The S6 12-Volt Lithium Ion Cordless Rechargeable Drum Pump Motor developed by Finish Thompson fits all EF pump tubes, is versatile, economical, extremely portable and available from pumping specialists Michael Smith Engineers.

The cordless design makes it easy to transfer fluids virtually anywhere, with maximum fade-free performance, equivalent to a corded AC powered motor. The latest Lithium ion batteries have a much higher energy density compared to nickel cadmium (NiCd) or nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries so the pumps can operate effectively for up to 50 minutes between charges. Also, Lithium ion batteries have no ‘memory’ effect which means they can be recharged at any state of their discharge.

The unit has a solid-state electronic control circuit that monitors all aspects of the motor and battery pack to ensure reliable operation and long-life, while dual cooling fans help to improve the performance and life of the battery pack.

Multiple charging options include 115 or 230 volt AC and for mobile applications an automobile or commercial vehicle 12 volt port option will suffice. For permanent charging locations, a moulded wall hanger is available which stores the charger unit internally.

The rechargeable motor can be used with any of the Finish Thompson EF Series tube sets - polypropylene, pure polypropylene/PVDF and stainless steel while the 2-speed motor ensures smooth and precise dispensing. On the low speed setting, the pump / motor will run for approximately 50 minutes between charges and the high speed setting, it will run for around 20 minutes.

The S6 Rechargeable Drum Pump Motor will be an ideal option for transferring fluids from drums, barrels and carboys where a power supply is not available, is too distant from the point of pumping, or where fluids need transferring in remote, isolated locations.

Drive Systems evolved. Generally speaking, electric motors are not “lone wolves” but for most applications need to be combined with gearheads for speed reduction as well as encoders. To ensure that the components are perfectly matched to each other and to minimise installation requirements, it is recommended to obtain the individual components as a complete solution from a single source.
