They pose a number of process challenges, particularly where there are issues of acidity and high viscosity, which in turn can make pumping (and unloading from tankers) slow and prone to noise caused by cavitation.
The solution lies with correct pump selection. Watson-Marlow offers a range of low shear, cavitation-free pumps which are capable of delivering high transfer rates. Our positive displacement pumps also maintain product integrity and ensure low maintenance requirements/costs.
- No cavitation or associated noise issues
- Reduced unloading times
- Low shear and smooth laminar flow
- High transfer rates
- Product integrity is maintained
- System shocks eliminated
- Low maintenance requirements/costs
