  • Pumps with extended service life for generating biogas from organic waste

    When regular commercial pumps are used to process organic waste, they typically wear out after only a short period of time. Liquids pumped under these conditions attack pumps from two different angles: first with highly abrasive additives and second with liquids that have highly fluctuating pH values and therefore a high level of chemical aggressiveness. These conditions are very tough on seals ...
