Around 8 years ago, ARGAL introduced its first FRP pump creating the SATURN pump series, as an alternative to metallic pump basis, for seawater applications or to be used to move corrosive liquids.
ARGAL is going to be the leading global manufacturer for FRP pump, having supplied its SATURNevo pumps for the biggest aquarium worldwide.
What are the most relevant improvements we did during the 8 years?
– A sturdy one-piece volute casing fully made of epoxy vinyl ester reinforced with fiberglass
– Impeller filled with carbon fiber
– A long list of FRP options to be used across multiple applications
– Increased mechanical properties and chemical resistance
– Longer lifecycle and decreased maintenance
– Hydraulic efficiency increased up to 80%
We truly believe in the composite material as an alternative solution to metallic for pump to be used on seawater and corrosive environments. And we just begin the improvement of our products.
