Chemical pumps are made of corrosion-resistant materials to enable them to process commercial and industrial abrasives, chemicals, and corrosive liquids.

Applications of Chemical Pumps
Just as the word "chemical" is a broad-based term, the uses for a chemical pump are diverse as well. Chemical centrifugal pumps use rotating impellers to add velocity to the liquid they are pumping. Within the pump, the velocity of the liquid is generated by centrifugal force. Chemical pumps are used for chemicals that are water-like in viscosity when the quantities of flow are large compared to the pressure requirements. A chemical pump can be used to pump adhesives, bleach, coatings, chromic acid, fuel, oil, paint, resin, salt water, and solvent from a container to a transfer station or the point of application.
Chemical Pump Design
Different types of chemical pumps are available for different particular purposes. Because they need to be able to handle corrosive chemicals or solution process temperatures, chemical pumps are usually constructed from thermoplastics or metal.
