Mouvex, was founded in 1906 and has remained an innovator in the manufacture of positive displacement pumps since then. Of particular interest to the chemical process market are their eccentric rotating and vane pumps for problematic applications and delicate liquids.


Mouvex pumps are best known for their reliability, durability and cost effectiveness, and have earned a reputation as the ideal pumping technology for some of the harshest applications in the world. 

With more than a century of experience, Mouvex is a leader in product innovation, providing cutting-edge solutions utilizing a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Auxerre, France. By localizing customer support for all PSG brands, no matter where in the world you need us, the PSG Service Center in Auxerre is an example of how we deliver on the promise to make our channel partners more competitive and more successful. 


Mouvex specializes in manufacturing eccentric disc pumps and sliding vane pumps. The eccentric disc pumps feature a unique design with a disc placed inside the pump cylinder, creating four pumping chambers that vary in volume as the disc rotates, ensuring a constant and regular flow rate. These pumps are ideal for sanitary applications requiring consistent, non-pulsing flow, and gentle fluid handling with low shear rates. They excel in industries like food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics due to their compliance with regulatory sanitary standards, gentle product handling, containment, and easy maintenance. Mouvex sliding vane pumps, on the other hand, have vanes that slide in and out of slots in the pump rotor. When the rotor turns, the vanes move outward in their slots, creating pumping chambers. Fluid flows into these chambers at the suction port and is transported around the pump casing until it reaches the discharge port, where it is squeezed out into the discharge piping. 


In food-and-beverage, pharmaceutical and cosmetic-manufacturing applications, product recovery refers to the nearly total utilization (or yield) of products or ingredients. When performed properly, product recovery substantially eliminates the waste of useable products and ingredients that would otherwise remain in suction or discharge process lines during changeovers or at the end of production runs, thereby increasing profits. Too often, these fluids that remain in the piping, which can be some of the most expensive in the world, are just washed out and flushed down the drain. Or they're recovered only with the assistance of costly add-on components, such as pigging systems. 

Pump technologies such as lobe, external circumferential piston (ECP), centrifugal, peristaltic hose and progressive cavity are often chosen to facilitate the transfer of raw and finished fluids during production. However, these pumps are not capable of adequately clearing or stripping the transfer lines of remaining materials. Basically, product recovery is the process of clearing or stripping lines of valuable products that can still be used, but these legacy pump technologies are often unable to satisfactorily perform those duties. There is a better option available, one that, if the right pumping technology is used, can help manufacturers achieve increased product-recovery rates of 60% to 80%. 


The key to optimizing product recovery and, by extension, profit recovery is identifying and employing the most efficient and reliable pumping technology, one that can be trusted to reliably strip suction or discharge lines of valuable raw materials and salable end-products. For more than a century, eccentric disc pump technology from Mouvex® has stood ready to optimize product recovery rates thanks to an operating principle that provides non-pulsing, low-slip operation with high volumetric consistency. Mouvex pumps are also able to pump air, which creates a vacuum effect on the pump's suction side and a compressor effect on the discharge side. This produces a plug effect that pushes a complete and still useable product "plug" out of the piping.
