pumping abrasive liquids
Three approaches can be taken when it comes to the basic pump design for fluids containing abrasives.
- To use a hard, wear-resistant material for the internal components such as PE or chrome.
- Reduce the velocity of the fluid in the pump chamber by using a low shear and slow pumping action .
- Use a soft material with tear resistant properties as found in peristaltic pumps, AOD pumps and eccentric disc pumps.
At Axflow we can offer all of these solutions across Ireland when it comes to pumping abrasive fluids.
