White Knight PX Series Pumps

Durable, Teflon® PTFE and PFA Pumps For High-Purity Chemicals

PX/PLX Series pumps were discontinued Dec 31, 2015. Please upgrade to PXA Series pumps for better performance, improved reliability, extended pump life and shorter lead times. See comparisons below. PX/PLX Series pumps will be supported for five years after discontinuation.

White Knight PX Series Pumps for Semiconductor

Overview

PX Series pumps distribute chemicals through Teflon® PTFE and PFA fluid paths. They are capable of up to 100°C (212°F) and offer air supply pressures up to 7 Bar (100 psi). The pumps operate with a solenoid valve and proximity switches, running continuously throughout their two-year warranty. The pumps are available in three models, PX30, PX60, and PX120, which are capable of maximum flow rates of 30, 60 and 120 lpm, respectively.

While White Knight continues to offer and support PX Series pumps, we recommend users consider PXA Series pumps, which provide better performance, increased flow rates, higher pressure capabilities, improved reliability, extended pump life and warranty periods, as well as shorter lead times. See comparisons below.

*May vary depending on configuration. Suction lift diminishes over time. Recommended installation level less than 3 ft above source.
**dB Level at 60 psi 50 CPM (top) and 60 psi maximum CPM (bottom). Sound Levels measured in accordance with ISO9614-2:1997.
***Dry-run capable PXASD030 and PXASD060 pumps require flooded suction and may have a reduced warranty unless prior arrangements are made with White Knight. Contact White Knight for details.
