  • Less and More : Why You Should Pump Slurries with a Peristaltic Pump

    LESS WATER Peristaltic Pumps Use Less Water Hose pumps can circulate slurry SGs of 1.6 to 1.8 or up to 80% solid content. The traditional centrifugal pump loses efficiency when the slurry SG reaches 1.3 or 30% solids. With this limitation, slurry pumps have significant process water demands : on a plant processing 70 tonnes of ore per hour, every time a hose pump replaces a ...

  • Recycling of Cars Made Green and Cleaner with Verderflex Peristaltic Pumps

    At the end of its’ life, a car yields on average, 140 kilos of shredder waste: 26 kg of metals, 69 kg of plastics, 11 kg of minerals and 24 kg of fibres. In Tiel, Netherlands, a Post Shredder Treatment plant (PST) was built in 2011, for the recycling of cars. The PST plant is one of the two plants in Europe that are able to recycle to approximately 95% of the waste materials. ...

  • Heat Pump Used to Drain Contaminated Sludge in a Steel Factory

    Summary In 1987, new regulations required that factories dispose of their contaminated water and waste themselves. Making galvanised steel wire, the Stelfil factory produces sludge contaminated with lead and zinc. Stelfil spent thousands of dollars to bury this waste and evaluated three systems to remove most of the water: a gas dryer, an induction heated screw conveyor and a heat pump system. ...


  • AquFlow (formerly Hydroflo) metering pump helps make fireproofing system a success
