This company’s Finish Thompson drum pumps and barrel-emptying pumps are now available with the TEFC (totally enclosed fan-cooled) IP55 motor (photo). The new motors include a powerful 1,000-W continuous-duty universal motor providing variable-speed operation from 0 to 12,000 rpm. The variable-speed TEFC versions feature solid-state control with a chemical-resistant touchpad for precise fluid dispensing and motor protection against overload and high temperatures. These motors provide 10 selectable speeds that can be easily adjusted by pushing the appropriate key on the keypad. These motors also incorporate a zero-voltage safety-release feature, which prevents the motor from turning back on after a power failure. — Michael Smith Engineers Ltd., Woking, U.K.
