Tsurumi develops titanium pumps

Tsurumi has introduced its new TM series of lightweight, submersible titanium pumps to address the problem of corrosion from water with a high acidic content.

All the pump parts that come into contact with liquid are made of titanium, which effectively protects against the chemical attack of pumped media containing salt and chloride.

Titanium is 45% lighter than steel and twice as strong as aluminium. The material forms an extremely resistant oxidic protective layer, which can be less sensitive to dents, scratches and notches.

The TM series currently comprises three pump types providing up to 350 l/min on the one hand and 15 m head on the other. Due to the weight advantage of the titanium alloy used by Tsurumi, the pumps weigh only 7.8 kg dry. In addition to titanium, Tsurumi also uses GRP for secondary housing parts and ultra-hard silicon carbide for shaft seals. Like almost all pumps in the range, the TM also comes with encapsulated electrical conductors, a double inside mechanical seal and built-in motor protection.
