Whether you need to batch ingredients into a reactor, feed a filling line, or transfer a waste wash solution for a mixing pan to an IBC; correctly specified and robust pumps are key.
Pump technology and size are selected for the applications.
Starting with low viscosity…
Air Operated Diaphragm Pump – for low viscosity (1 – 1000 mPas), available in size from ¼” to 3” depending on output required, with a number of material configurations available for chemical compatibility with the fluid. Plus specialty variants like quick-knock-down hygiene AODs.
Stem (dip tube suction) Piston Pumps – for lower viscosities (100 – 25,000 mPas), with multiple Air Motor, and Pump Lower combinations to give a broad range of dispense pressures and outputs (lpm), material configuration. Available in full stainless steel with seal material configurations available for chemical compatibility.
Follower/ram mounted 2-ball Piston Pumps – for low to medium viscosities (10,000 – 350,000), available in variants to suit 20ltr (5 gal) pails or 200ltr (55 gal) drums, again with a broad range of dispense pressures, outputs (lpm), and material configuration.
Follower/ram mounted, chop-check (shovel) Piston Pumps – for mid to high viscosities (200,000 – 2,500,000), again available in variants to suit 20ltr (5 gal) pails or 200ltr (55 gal) drums, with a broad range of dispense pressures and outputs (lpm).
Hydraulic Discharge Extrusion Press – typically for dispensing high flows of the highest viscosity, but can be used on a wide range of viscosities with a suitable plate seal configuration and regulated ram pressure. Most commonly sized for 200ltr (55 gal) drum dispense, or custom sided to suit a Mixing Pan internal diameter. The main applications are feeding Paste Filling Lines, and decanting paste from Mix Pans into Pails and Drums.
