Since their inception in 1957 in Barcelona Spain, TECNIUM thermoplastic centrifugal pumps have remained a solid force for innovation in the field of non-metallic pump construction. Tecnium engineered plastic pumps are some of the most reliable and high efficiency centrifugal pumps and pumping systems available for the pumping of extremely corrosive chemicals and chemical applications. Tecniums safe, reliable corrosion resistant material construction is ideal for highly corrosive and abrasive applications.
Currently, Tecnium has 5 product lines, a horizontal pump, a close coupled pump a vertical dry mount and wet pit pump and the newest line is a Tencium magnetic drive pump capable of running dry. The Tecnium pumps are available in 6 different plastic materials to suit most corrosive pump applications. These materials Include:
- Ethylene Chlorotrifluorethylene
- Polyvinylidene Fluoride
Plastic Type & Temperature Range
- 140°FPVCPolyvinyl Chloride
- 275°FPVDFPolyvinylidene Fluoride
- 300°FE-CTFEEthylene Chlorotrifluorethylene
By offering a high efficiency pumping system at a minimum maintenance cost, Tecnium Pumps have expanded into the pump marketplace and show no signs of slowing down. From their innovative designs to their resistance to corrosive chemicals, Tecnium is an ideal choice for industry.

Tecnium Pump Plastics
POLYVINYLIDENE FLUORIDE (PVDF): Fluorinated plastic of high chemical properties and remarkably resistant to abrasion. Maintains its mechanical properties until 120°C (248°F) in continuous applications. Excellent chemical resistance against almost all acids and inorganic alkalis and high resistance to many organic solvents.
POLYPROPYLENE (PP): Thermoplastic of excellent thermal and chemical stability. Resistant to many acid solutions and salts, and to many organic solvents. Mechanical stability up to 90°C (194°F), and up to 110°C (230°F) on discontinuous applications.
POLYETHYLENE (PE): Its chemical structure and resistance to corrosion are similar to polypropylene's. The continuous temperature of service is limited to 80°C (176°F). Specially resistant to abrasion.
ETHYLENE-TRIFLUOR CHLORETHYLENE (E-CTFE): Fluorinated thermoplastic weld able in inert atmosphere. Its chemical resistance is maximum against most acids, salts and alkalis whether organic or inorganic, even to temperatures until 150°C (302°F) in continuous operation; high limit at 170°C (338°F), keeping its mechanical properties.
