Pumping Propanol

Propanol, a vital industrial compound, poses unique challenges when it comes to efficient pumping. AxFlow, renowned for its expertise in chemical pumps, offers tailored solutions for handling Propanol.

Propanol: Challenges and Solutions

Propanol, a versatile alcohol compound, finds widespread applications in various industrial sectors. However, its unique properties present challenges during pumping. AxFlow, a leading expert in chemical pumps, understands the complexities involved in handling Propanol. Here are the challenges and tailored solutions we offer:

Challenges in Pumping Propanol

  1. Low NPSHa: Propanol's low net positive suction head available can affect the pump's efficiency, requiring specialized solutions.
  2. Fluid Slippage: Due to its low viscosity, Propanol is prone to fluid slippage within the pump, reducing operational effectiveness.
  3. Poor Lubrication: Propanol's inadequate lubrication properties can lead to wear and tear on pump components, necessitating careful pump selection.
  4. Boiling Tendencies: Propanol's tendency to boil at relatively low temperatures adds complexity to its handling, requiring precise control.
