Four basic challenges exist when pumping latex:
- Latex emulsions are extremely shear-sensitive, requiring pumps that reliably deliver a low shear rate.
- Any contact with air could polymerize the latex, making it imperative that care is taken over the seal arrangement.
- The ability to handle liquids with varying viscosities,
- Easy cleanability and maintenance.
AxFlow UK offers a range of technologies with low shear pumping actions and that are either sealess or can be fitted with double mechanical seals.
