Why Vanton?

Back in December 1950, Vanton developed a small, compact revolutionary plastic pump for use in conjunction with the first heart-lung device. The design limited fluid contact to only two non-metallic parts: a plastic body block and a flexible liner. This was the birth of the Flex-i-liner® seal-less self-priming rotary pump which has become the industry standard for handling corrosive, abrasive and viscous fluids as well as those that must be transferred free of product contamination.

Vanton then went on to develop heavy duty horizontal centrifugal pumps with designs that took advantage of the superior chemical inertness, abrasion resistance, low weight and precision moldability of plastics. The Vanton line of Chem-Gard® centrifugal pumps delivers flows up to 1450 GPM at discharge heads to 280 feet and temperatures to 275°F. The unique power frame provides a wide open seal area and retractable bearing for ease of maintenance and unlimited choice of mechanical seals. These pumps are available to ANSI B73.1 process industry standards, as well as to ISO/DIN standards.

With the experience gained from horizontal centrifugals, Vanton subsequently developed a dependable line of vertical thermoplastic pumps, having the same flow characteristics as the horizontals. These Sump-Gard® pumps are available for depths to 20 feet. A complementary series of "bearingless" cantilever pumps was designed, resulting in the most complete line of thermoplastic vertical pumps in the industry.

Vanton designers are dedicated to matching pumping needs with new developments in thermoplastics. It's no wonder that the prestigious members of the Chemical Engineering product Research Panel named Vanton their first choice in thermoplastic pumps by a 5 to 1 margin over our closest competitor. When performance, design, experience and personalized service are critical, there is no "or equal" to a Vanton... the pump professionals prefer.
