The versatile Roper ROC series of stainless steel pumps are now available with an optional PEEK (polyether ether ketone) idler gear.
This upgrade allows the units to be used in many low viscosity and/or low lubricity liquid applications. PEEK is a very machinable thermoplastic polymer with excellent mechanical and chemical resistant properties – even at higher temperatures.
The PEEK gear option is recommended for fluids less than 100 SSU and available for all sizes in the ROC product range. Please note only the idler gear is made from PEEK material – the 17-4PH stainless steel ROC drive gear remains unchanged.
Contact Roper Pump Company Application Engineers to verify fluid compatibility and other specifics of the application.
