Michael Smith Engineers Ltd., UK

Available from pump specialists Michael Smith Engineers the new M3V and M5V motors are designed for use with the popular PF and TBF series drum pumps. Features include an innovative tool-free motor attachment method whereby the lower section of the motor has a collet style connection. Operators simply slide the motor onto the pump tube and then rotate a nut to tighten and the pump is ready to use.

Other features include infinitely variable electronic speed control which means fluid flow can be precisely controlled, double wall motor housing which minimises noise and vibration and a downdraft cooling system which contributes toward extended motor life.

These new motor options further extend the capabilities of the established range of Finnish Thompson drum pumps which are ideal for transferring many liquids, including corrosives, solvents and viscous fluids. Models are available to handle capacities up to 150 lit/min and viscosities up to 100,000 centipoise.
