The Quantm pump features a new electric motor design that Graco says is up to eight times more efficient than a standard pneumatic pump. The pump is suitable for nearly any fluid transfer application and offers a wide range of construction materials to support multiple industrial and hygienic applications, including chemical processing, water treatment, paint manufacturing, food and beverage, and pharmaceutical.

The electric Quantm pump is designed to be a highly reliable drop-in replacement for current pneumatic pumps or greenfield construction. This pump is built for harsh industrial or hygienic environments, yet its innovative and efficient design is lightweight and easy to maintain. With built-in controls and no gearbox, the pump also fits seamlessly into most fluid transfer applications.

“The Quantm pump isn’t a new twist on old technology. It’s an entirely innovative design that changes how pumps perform in factories and other installations around the world,” said Dan Purkat, senior product marketing manager at Graco. “We’re excited to have created an advanced, extremely efficient design that is lightweight and provides significantly lower lifetime costs than other pump technologies. The pump modernizes operations by greatly reducing energy cost. This empowers industrial manufacturers to protect and grow margins and measurably contribute to energy savings, compliance and environmental stewardship efforts.”

“Our new Quantm pump is the perfect solution for upgrading your less-efficient air operated pumps,” said Jeffrey Shaffer, senior product marketing manager at Graco. “The same great self-priming, stalling, seal-less design with smooth, steady flow is a must-have for in-process applications, filling systems and hygienic applications. The powerful new FluxCore motors and drives deliver up to eight times more continuous torque at low speeds than conventional motors, and the plug-and-play installation allows you to easily replace existing pumps without additional investment or infrastructure rework.”
