A fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP) pump designed specifically for use with seawater and brackish-water
desalination systems has been launched by Met-Pro Global Pump Solutions - Fybroc.
The Fybroc Series 8500 vertical-turbine pump
The company claims that the Fybroc Series 8500 All-FRP Vertical Turbine Pump is the only one
of its kind: the first corrosion-resistant vertical-turbine pump with the casings and mixed flow
impeller constructed from homogeneous FRP materials.
Designed for use with seawater intake, brackish-water reverse-osmosis, brine and
transfer applications, the pump comes in four sizes with capacities up to 1,700 GPM
(386 m³/h), head to 70 ft (21 m) per stage and working pressure to
150 psig (11.4 bar).
