A customer required a pump to transfer resin from delivery vehicles to bulk storage tanks. The key requirements were reliability and good suction (as the pump had to be mounted above a bunded area and still be able to pull the viscous resin up and over the wall in order to transfer it to the tanks). The flowrate required was 30,000l/h against a pressure of 2 – 3 bar.
Pump & Valve supplied a Roper 3748HBFRV pump complete with a geared electric motor. This pump had a hard faced mechanical seal to handle the resin and the base plate was custom made to make the pump fit the existing pipework. The relief valve built into the pump also provided closed valve and dead head protection.
