Aquarium, Zoo, Marine Park and Aquaculture Pumps

ISO 9001:2015 Certified


FRP PUMPS for aquarium, zoos, marine parks and aquaculture facilities.

Magnatex/Argal Pumps are specifically designed to handle sea water services in large public aquariums, zoos, aquaculture facilities and marine parks. All wet end parts are manufactured from high strength, long strand, fiberglass reinforced polymer (FRP) in order to resist corrosion, abrasion and operating temperatures between -50°F (-45°C) and 250°F (120°C). Available pumps include ANSI B73.1 pumps in both close coupled and long coupled configurations, Vertical sump pumps, AODD pumps and Submersible pumps.

Manufacturing Process
Magnatex/Argal fiberglass reinforced polymer pumps are manufactured using a Resin Transfer Injection molding process (RTM). Reinforcing layers of long strand fiberglass mats are placed into molds prior to injecting the appropriate resin. The use of layers of different weight fiberglass mats produces a finished product of the highest possible mechanical strength (comparable to stainless steel or alloy pumps) so that a casing armor is not required to reinforce the pump casing. FRP (fiberglass reinforced polymer) thermoset resin pumps offer higher strength, thermal and dimensional stability and much longer life than our competitors' thermoplastic pumps.

Depending on the application, different formulations of epoxy vinyl ester resins provides a broad spectrum of chemical and abrasion resistance suitable for pumps that are used in industrial and municipal waste water treatment facilities, water parks, large scale aquariums, zoos, marine parks and aquaculture farms.
