  • Verderflex Peristaltic Hose Pump effectively transfers Lime Slurry

    A gas manufacturing company requested an effective method for transferring lime slurry from below storage tanks to tanker trucks. The company was using vacuum trucks and required a more reliable pumping process. Due to the high specific gravity of the slurry, the solids or particles have a tendency to settle when it is left for extended periods of time. Air must be injected to ensure the lime and ...

  • Lime dosing solutions for water treatment plant

    The Sioux Falls Water Purification Plant in South Dakota USA, had always relied on gravity to feed slaked lime slurry to their softening basins. In 2009, the staff decided to give gravity a helping hand by trialing a pump to move the slurry more effectively. Lime slurry is a dense product to transfer with a high solid content of up to 35%. Due to the slurry’s abrasive nature which causes ...

  • Combined 50,000 service hours from lime dosing pumps

    A story of unusual service longevity of lime dosing pumps has emerged from South West Water's Restormel Water Treatment Works, located near Lostwithiel in Cornwall. It started in 2001 when the company approached dosing specialist Gee & Company to review a history of lime pump failures at the site. Amongst the challenges at Restormel was a need for very long lime slurry dosing lines running ...

  • Value for money pump wins over cheaper option

    A British made Verderflex peristaltic hose pump has certainly proved excellent value for money for a Swedish energy and environmental technology company.  It was chosen to dose carbon slurry, a task to which the company’s previous pumps were proving inadequate.  The first Verderflex model was installed in 2007, running trouble free ever since and still with its original hose. Process ...

  • Peristaltics neutralise the pH problem at Buckton Castle Water Treatment Works

    The viscous lime slurry used to maintain a neutral pH during the water treatment process was causing frequent blockages in the diaphragm pumps used by Buckton Castle WTW. However, the installation of two peristaltic hose pumps supplied by Watson-Marlow Bredel has overcome this problem, substantially reducing both the time and cost of maintenance required. Buckton Castle Water Treatment Works ...
