Our UK chemical pump range includes the following:
Wilden AOD pumps offer a cost effective and proven solution as chemical transfer pumps while our Almatec pumps over very high levels of product containment. Our centrifugal pump portfolio contains many ranges suitable for use as acid transfer pumps. This includes magnetic drive pumps, iso pumps, non metallic plastic pumps made from PP and PVDF, ETFE lined pumps, canned pumps all of which can be used a chemical transfer pumps.
Most or our OBL and Pulsafeeder metering pumps can be constructed from a range of chemically resistant materials and several offer high levels of product containment. All of our Realax peristaltic pumps can be used to pump acids and alklines. The Mouvex C and SLS eccentric disc pumps are available in chemically resistant materials. They are useful as chemical pumps where dry priming is required. We have three ranges of chemically resistant vane pumps SNP, SVM and P Series.
Our PTM range is available in polypropylene, PVDF and the STM range in stainless steel and other alloys to make our turbine process pumps ideal for pumping a range of aggressive chemicals where the flow is too low for centrifugal chemical transfer pumps.
Chemical Pump Maintenance
Maintaining chemical centrifugal pumps is crucial to ensure their optimal performance and longevity. Regular maintenance helps prevent costly breakdowns and extends the lifespan of these pumps. One essential aspect of maintenance is monitoring and maintaining proper fluid levels, ensuring that the pump is adequately primed.
It is also important to inspect and clean the pump's impeller, casing, and volute to remove any debris or buildup that may affect its efficiency. Regularly checking and tightening the pump's bolts and connections is necessary to prevent leaks. Additionally, lubricating the pump's bearings and seals helps reduce friction and wear. Routine inspections of seals and gaskets should be conducted to identify any signs of damage or deterioration.
It is also vital to Know your fluid. This is because selecting the incorrect Chemical pump for a specifc application could lead to a range of implications such as, inefficient pumping as well as damage to the pump completely, contamination leading to hazardous chemical reactions and severe leakages and spills.
