In 1950, Vanton developed a revolutionary, all-plastic pump for use in conjunction with the first heart-lung device. Its innovative design limited fluid contact to only two non-metallic parts: a plastic body block and a flexible liner. This marked the birth of Vanton's Flex-I-Liner® sealless, self-priming rotary pump.

Flex-I-Liner® pump installations quickly found applications in all industries and municipal applications involving corrosive, abrasive and viscous fluids.

Flex-I-Liner® pump installations quickly found applications in all industries and municipal applications involving corrosive, abrasive and viscous fluids, as well as those applications where the fluid must be transferred without contaminating the product. As demand increased for this pump, so did performance specifications calling for capacities that exceeded its limits. This prompted Vanton to develop the first centrifugal pump where all components that come in contact with fluids are made of solid thermoplastics. These thermoplastics are inert to the most acidic as well as the most caustic chemicals.

Vanton's first thermoplastic centrifugal pump was a CHEM-GARD® horizontal pump introduced in 1963, followed by a SUMP-GARD® vertical thermoplastic pump in 1968, greatly expanding the company's industrial and municipal customer base.

In addition to new and replacement applications for stand-alone pumps, FLEX-I-LINER®, SUMP-GARD® and CHEM-GARD® pumps became widely utilized as components for integrated OEM systems that handle corrosive, abrasive or ultrapure fluids, as well as for Vanton's own Pump/Tank Systems.

Now a major product line, Vanton's non-metallic Pump/Tank Systems with sensors and programmable controls are offered in capacities to 5,000 gallons. Engineered, tested and ready to run, the systems take the risks, complexities and delays out of individually sourcing components such as pumps, tanks, controls, sensors, and other accessories from multiple vendors.

Vanton's first thermoplastic centrifugal pump was a CHEM-GARD® horizontal pump introduced in 1963.

Today, Vanton produces six lines of SUMP-GARD® vertical thermoplastic pumps in a range of sizes up to 20 feet, with capacities to 900 gpm at heads to 180 feet.

CHEM-GARD® horizontal centrifugal thermoplastic pumps are also offered in six lines, with flow capacities to 1,150 gpm at heads to 185 feet.

Vanton pumps are engineered to individual requirements and are available in a variety of configurations including: ANSI, mag-drive, close-coupled, self-priming, vertical to 20 feet, and run-dry cantilevered.

Prior to shipment, Vanton tests every pump to conditions of service and beyond at a minimum of six performance points to ensure customers of dependable performance upon delivery and a long lifetime of service. Recorded data is kept in perpetuity and is available for review whenever necessary. To test pumps across an expanded flow range in greater numbers with improved precision, Vanton engineered and built an all-new testing facility equipped with state-of-the-art digital instrumentation.

Keeping pace with the expansion of its thermoplastic pump products usage into more than 75 countries, Vanton has established a worldwide network of factory sales and service representatives who are knowledgeable about Vanton pumps as well as the applications in which they are employed. As a result, Vanton has likely solved a specialized pumping problem precisely like yours many times before.

Innovative from the start, Vanton is dedicated to problem solving through close, personal customer involvement, helping the industry and a number of municipalities meet pumping challenges while complying with increasingly stringent environmental regulations.

Regardless of the Vanton pump you specify, it is engineered to provide the ultimate in performance, longevity and ease of maintenance. Further, Vanton engineers, technicians and over 400 sales representatives are devoted to ensuring your total satisfaction.
