Pumping Benzene

Benzene, a fundamental aromatic hydrocarbon, is vital in various industrial applications. At AxFlow, we specialize in providing reliable pumps designed for handling Benzene safely and efficiently.

Precision and Safety in Benzene Transfer

Benzene, a fundamental aromatic hydrocarbon, finds extensive use in various industrial applications, from solvents and fuels to plastics and pharmaceuticals. However, handling Benzene demands precision and expertise due to its unique characteristics. At AxFlow, we specialize in providing pumps designed to address the challenges associated with pumping Benzene, ensuring safe and efficient chemical transfers.

Challenges in Pumping Benzene

  • Low NPSHa: Ensuring adequate Net Positive Suction Head available is crucial 
  • Fluid Slippage: Addressing fluid slippage issues to maintain efficiency during pumping processes.
  • Poor Lubrication: Dealing with poor lubrication within the pump chamber due to Benzene's low viscosity.
  • Boiling: Managing the fluid's tendency to boil, which can affect the pump's performance.
  • Mechanical Seal Sensitivity: Slight issues with the mechanical seal can result in off-gassing, requiring precise sealing solutions.

Examples of Benzene Applications

  • Solvent: Widely used as a solvent in industries like coatings, adhesives, and paints.
  • Fuel: Used in the formulation of gasoline and as a component in various fuels.
  • Plastics: Key ingredient in the production of plastics, resins, and synthetic fibers.
  • Pharmaceuticals: Employed in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals and drugs.
  • Chemical Synthesis: Utilized in the synthesis of numerous chemicals and compounds.

At AxFlow, our carefully selected range of pumps, centered around magnetic drive and canned pump technologies, ensures the precise and safe transfer of Benzene, meeting the stringent demands of diverse industries.
