The Benefits of Power Pumps

Powder Pumps are Economical compared with other complex powder systems, such as Conveyer and vacuum systems. These pumps are also Convenient  and safer compared with manual powder handling. In fact, No dust and No labour are involved. There are several Standard powder pump execution: 

  • PTFE coated aluminium pumps
  • AISI316L suction and discharge manifolds
  • Air induction system

How Does it Work?
