GoatThroat pumps

GoatThroat Pumps is now offering the SCP Pump Series for class 1 and 2 flammable liquids, which is designed to minimize hazards associated with transferring flammable or combustible chemicals such as alcohols, solvents and volatile hydrocarbons.

The SCP Line meets NFPA30-2015.18.4.4 standards, which outline safeguards to reduce the hazards associated with the storage, handling, and use of flammable and combustible liquids.

As a sealed system, the SCP Line of Pumps allow for spill-free, environmentally safe transfer with no chance for vapours and VOCs to escape the container. This significantly reduces the chance of an ignition event.

The pump features a grounding wire, bonding wire and is made of conductive plastic, allowing users of flammable liquids to ground the pumps, making them safe for use with class 1 and 2 flammables.

All components of this new pump that come in contact with the fluid are created with conductive polypropylene, so there is grounding of the liquid, the pump, and, with correct bonding, to the container.  These pumps also meet the requirements of NFPA 77 which requires that the path to ground must prevent the accumulation of static electricity in conductive equipment.

Offered with a full range of elastomers for chemical compatibility: viton, EPDM, nitrile, santoprene and PTFE, GoatThroat pumps are designed to fit containers and drums from 5 to 55-gallons, and have a cost-effective life expectancy of 10 to 15 years.
