Two new application sheets available below. The first application sheet is for the Canadian installation of an SP SLURRY Pump and the other is for a 6NHTA Redi-Prime Pump installation. Both are in the .pdf format. More applciation sheets available here.
French biogas plant relies on Bredel hose pumps for hot abrasive slurry handling - Case Study
One of the largest biogas plants in France has recently been commissioned, with three Bredel 65 hose pumps from Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group (WMFTG) at its core. The pumps are being used to transfer homogenous abrasive slurry in three process stages vital for the sustainable supply of energy in the region. The new biogas plant, which was designed, built and commissioned in 2017, is set to produce 2.2 million m³ of biomethane per annum, feeding the GRDF grid (Gaz Réseau Distribution France)...
The Reasons and Measures of Ball Mill Low Grinding Efficiency
With the continuous improvement of mechanization level in China, ball mill also develops to the trend of large-scale. But after the large-scale, coupled with ball mill equipment structure, process configuration, and other factors, resulting in production cost increased, grinding efficiency decreased. Next Fote machinery (ftmmachine.com) will analyze the reasons for the reduction of grinding efficiency and puts forward some measures. 1. The reasons of ball mill low grinding efficiency (1) The influence of...
Bredel 65 pumps eliminates AODD pump issues at major lithium battery plant
Bredel 65 hose pumps from Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group are now providing constant efficiency in ball-milling processes at a high-volume battery plant in China. Previously, ball milling was being compromised by a poorly performing AODD (air-operated double diaphragm) pump used for high-viscosity slurry recirculation. Reduced flow/efficiency and leaks were proving disruptive to the company’s annual output of circa 200 million rear-mounted batteries, around 50% of which is based on lithium iron phosphate...
The Flushability of Flushable Wet Wipes
Whether used to remove cosmetics, clean a baby or wipe food and debris from the kitchen counter, a growing number of consumers are purchasing flushable wet wipes for their household needs. In fact, The Atlantic reported personal wet wipe sales reached an estimated $2.2 billion last year, and Euromonitor International’s market tracker predicts 3-percent growth in sales volume of wet wipes from 2014 to 2019. Sales of flushable wipes have increased due to their convenience. But this convenience can come at...
The Clog Blog
Clogging and over pressuring are definitely problematic for Liquid Chromatography columns. Back in 2005 John Dolan’s sage advice to chromatographers to make an LC column last forever was simple, “Never open the box!” As John pointed out, this is not practical and I have to agree. But as an LC column manufacturer I have seen remarks from customers regarding clogging as though it was it was a flaw in the column. Unfortunately, there is not really anything that we do when we manufacture a column...
