Fluid Path Teflon-Kalrez Upgrade to New Pump – initial build
This upgrade to an new pump is a custom assembly with all gaskets and o-rings in the fluid path and elsewhere configured with Teflon or Kalrez for increased durability. This is especially useful with strong acids and fluids which have other liquid contaminants in it, especially Acetone.
A remote discharge tap can greatly extend the versatility of GoatThroat pumps. With it, you can deliver liquids to a distance away from the container with the same finger tip control as the tap on the pump Ideal for transfer of liquids and chemicals from large drums, the remote nozzle allows precise, one-hand flow control, leaving the other hand free for work. 5-foot is standard. Other lengths are available in 5-foot increments. For lengths greater than 5-foot, you will probably want a pneumatic adapter. Please match the tap with your pump. Nitrile Remote Tap , EPDM Remote Tap , Santoprene Remote Tap , Viton Remote Tap
Remote discharge taps are available singly, or with several hose options. RT 100/200/300 and body barb fitting are made of polypropylene. Flammable liquid pumps are offered with the remote discharge tap assembled on the pump. Please be sure to select the appropriate hose.
The thumb-operated tap dispenses liquids as easily as using a faucet. Pressurized liquids can be easily transferred to levels up to 3 feet higher than the container, which is impossible with traditional gravity-fed liquid transfer methods. And our drip-proof design helps keep work areas clean and prevent potentially hazardous spills.
All hoses are 1/2-inch ID. Offered are: Food grade PVC, Food/Chemical Grade Tygon 2375, Gas and Oil Grade hose; and finally PTFE hose for very aggressive applications.
Tubes and hoses are available for your remote discharge nozzle or other applications. If you are ordering a groundable pump with a remote tap assembly, you must order a hose so that the factory installs it correctly with the bonding and grounding wires.
Because chemicals arrive at your facility in so many different sized containers: barrels, pails, jerri cans in 1 gallon up to 5 gallon containers,IBC totes, GoatThroat Pumps has one of the largest offerings of adapter in the world. And if we don’t have it yet, we will make it for you
INDUSTRIAL GRADE, LABORATORY GRADE, HIGH CONCENTRATION LIQUIDS
When chemicals have a very high concentration or when there are impurities in the liquids due to a previous use, it is good to consider an upgrade in the fluid path to teflon and kalrez gaskets. This upgrade to a new pump is a custom assembly with all gaskets and o-rings in the fluid path and elsewhere configured with Teflon or Kalrez for increased durability. This is especially useful with strong acids and fluids which have other liquid contaminants in it, especially Acetone. Order your fluid path teflon-kalrez upgrade here.
Branded chemicals can be pretty tricky. Your use them because they meet your particular need. But, when they are not single constituent liquids, sometimes our single elastomeric pumps (Nitrile, EPDM, Santoprene, Viton) will not be suitable. With very strong liquids or liquids for which no standard GT or SCP pump will work, we have created the Teflon-Kalrez pump. The Teflon-Kalrez Pumps have food grade Teflon and Kalrez elastomeric gaskets throughout the fluid path and other internal parts. See the brochure here. Please check the chemical compatibility chart to determine if these pumps are suitable for your liquid. Systems are offered for both food grade applications and flammable liquid applications.

In some circumstances, any trace of silicone can be a problem. We can custom manufacture pump with a removal process and then with no silicone grease. This 3 bath process, including Dynasolve CU-9 and IPA, removes silicone mold release from the plastics for high purity applications. The pumps are then custom assembled with Krytox GPL-205 lubricant. See the testing results here. Order your silicon free pump here.
Pumps for Flammable Liquids
Special Features: The SCP line of Pumps allow class 1 and 2 flammable liquids to be pumped using GoatThroat® Pumps’ unique engineering control technology. Please see the new NFPA30-2015 standards.
SCP Pumps are engineering controls for fluids which are designed to minimize the hazards associated when transferring flammable and combustible liquids. Featuring a grounding wire and a bonding wire and made with conductive plastic so there is grounding of the liquid, the pump, and, with correct bonding, to the container. Created for most demanding safety programs, these pumps meet NFPA 77 which requires that the path to ground must prevent the accumulation of static electricity in conductive equipment. The SCP-pumps feature the same breakthrough technology which has made GoatThroat® the most trusted name in transfer pumps.
Made in the USA, these pumps meet Directive 99/92/EC (also known as ‘ATEX
137’ or the ‘ATEX Workplace Directive’), Directive 94/9/EC (also known as ‘ATEX 95’ or ‘the ATEX Equipment Directive’ and also meet Great Britain’s Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR), The SCP pumps are not subject to the Pressure Equipment Directive(97/23/EC) since the design pressure is identified below the applicability limits for the PED (97/23/ EC) of 0.5bar.
Things happen when tools are used. Here are a couple of documents which may help whether you are just installing your pump for the first time, or if you have had your pump for 10 years. Please also feel free to call us to discuss your issues: +1.646.486.3636
These small, versatile pumps can now safely be used with nitrogen, shop air, air compressors or bottled compressed air in the shop, in the field — anywhere, any time. The Standard BGA ( BillyGoat adapter) features a regulator with an external pressure safety valves at 4.5 psig. The standard BGA compressor setup delivers fluids at up to 4.5 gallons per minute at 4 psi. We now offer the new BGA-3psig which limits the pressure to 3psig for those applications where user control of the regulator is not desirable. Order your pneumatic adapter today.
