Iwaki M Series chemical process pumps, available from John Brooks Company Limited, are non-metallic, sealless, corrosion-resistant and leak-free pumps for the toughest chemical handling applications. All M Series pumps feature a non-contact, dry-run capable structure. When fitted with a carbon bearing, the M Series allows for periods of repeatable dry running with no damage to the pump. This proven non-contact principle also greatly improves the ability to withstand cavitation, poor suction conditions and running against a closed discharge valve. During adverse operating conditions, the M Series high strength magnets align to open contact points in the front or rear of the pump, preventing damage to internal bearing surfaces and surrounding materials.
The M Series lineup includes:
- The MDM Series is an ANSI dimensional pump with flow rates to 350 GPM and TDH to 348 feet. It is available in both ETFE Teflon and virgin PFA for high-purity applications. The MDM series options include an elevated temperature rating up to 302 degrees F, and solids handling up to 10 per cent. The series also includes robust ceramic/SiC shafts with front and rear support, eliminating shaft deflection and allowing full-curve operation.
- MXM Series is a compact, cost-efficient option where applications fall below ANSI dimensional pumps. The MXM is rated to 160 GPM and TDH up to 142 feet. The MXM comes standard with corrosive-resistant ETFE Teflon internals, 150# ANSI flanges and a back pull-out design for easy maintenance.
- The MX-(F) Series is available in both glass-filled reinforced polypropylene and ETFE Teflon. It is rated to 130 GPM and TDH to 126 feet. Male by male NPT connections and NEMA-C-faced motors make the MX series incredibly easy to install and operate.
- SMX-(F) Series is a self-priming compact pump that is capable of lifting up to 13 feet of fluid in under 90 seconds. Available in 10 different flow configurations, this polypropylene or ETFE Teflon pump produces flows over 130 GPM and TDH up to 120 feet.
