Chemical Resistance

DC brushless centrifugal pumps, micro diaphragm pumps, vacuum pumps, micro gear pumps are composed of plastics, elastomer and metal components that interact with a wide range of fluid media depending on the application. The selection of materials that comprise the wetted components of a fluidic system needs to be reviewed for compatibility with the gas or liquid media to be employed. Depending on the type and aggressiveness of the media interacting with these components, swelling, reduced life, decreased performance or catastrophic failure could occur. The TOPSFLO Chemical Resistance Chart should be referenced to properly select materials for specific fluidic applications.
