Air Operated Diaphragm Pumps for Flammable Liquids
If you are pumping flammable liquids or chemicals, it is best to use a groundable pump. Sometimes a metal is not the best option for the liquid or chemical being pumped and you have to choose a conductive polypropylene double diaphragm pump.
The Verderair diaphragm pumps contain a conductive additive, this makes the wetted parts conductive. You can then pump flammable liquids knowing this pump is safe from causing fire.
Verderair is a reliable brand backed by a company with over 40 years experience. Not only do the Verderair pumps come with many benefits such as efficient pumping but have a 5 year guarantee.
When using a conductive (acetal or polypropylene) air operated diaphragm pump, it is best practice to use conductive hoses on both the suction and discharge. This will prevent an unwanted static charge build up.
It is still advised to attach a ground wire to the grounding screw on the pump which grounds the wetted parts.
