Cheshire Pump Company wins large pump order 2016

After some months of design discussions we won an order for large 8omm peristaltic pumps type LPP-T80 and Flowrox Expulse  pulsation dampeners for a leading UK chemical manufacturer

wp_20161019_015The pumps are used for filter feeding, operating at high volume flow during the bulk fill sequence then lower flow / speed but higher pressures for final stages the pumps and pulsation dampeners worked extremely well and the client is looking install more pumps and Expulse units

The Expulse unit prevents pulsations causing operational issues to the filter press plates, monitoring the system enabled us to measure, record and the change the Expulse internal pressure to operate at optimum performance when the pulsations are greatest

We have also now sold the Expulse unit into a Nuclear power station that was operating a competitors pump that was vibrating and pulsating badly, a simple installation minimised the pulsation reducing the vibration to a manageable level
