ChemiGuard increases site safety at UK cheese factory
To supply a safe and secure tanker offloading system that produces a flowrate of 20m3/hr
The client required a system to offload 36% hydrochloric acid from a road tanker into their bulk storage tanks whilst maintaining a high level of health and safety.
Our ChemiGuard range offered an ideal solution to this by providing a fully enclosed system complete with a magnetic drive self-priming pump (this pump will not air-lock which can be a problem on tanker offload applications). The Chemiguard unit has integrated PPE storage, 200 litre bund, fully lockable doors and is manufactured from UV stable material.
We specified a World Chemical YD505GV-AD5-G magnetic drive self-priming centrifugal pump to reach the desired flow rate whilst using polypropylene pipework to combat the corrosive characteristics of the hydrochloric acid.
Acid Transfer Pumps
Chem Resist Fluid Transfer has recently supplied an acid transfer pump to a major cheese manufacturer based in the south west of England.
One of the main challenges was that the customer was considering various pipe runs through the plant at design stage and wanted to understand the commercial impact on all options prior to installation.
To overcome this we utilised our Hydroflow software which allows for the detailed modelling of a proposed systems’ operation, therefore all options can be analysed so a final decision can be made.
A design duty of 12.2m3/hr @ 55 metres head was finally agreed resulting in a 2” pump complete with 11kW motor, baseplate, coupling & guard; motors were to be suitable for variable speed drive to allow fine tuning of the operating point.
Chem Resist Fluid Transfer supplies Hygienic Pump Trolley for Pharmaceutical Application
The passivated and electro-polished pump trolley consists of 2 Almatec E15ETZ-F4-XO1 air operated double diaphragm pumps complete with ET15EFT-F pulsation dampers, independent air filter / regulators and tri-clamp connections.
The station is to be used to transfer products within the pharmaceutical industry so the pumps and dampers were manufactured without threads on the liquid connections to reduce the possibility of bacteria forming.
Mobile Pumping Station
Chem Resist Fluid Transfer has recently designed, manufactured and supplied a mobile pump station to a chemical manufacturer in Scotland.
The pump station incorporates a self-priming magnetic drive pump, integral bund, control panel (with low load monitor for dry run protection) and all pipe-work & valves etc. The pump will be used throughout the site for transferring various chemicals from bunds, day tanks and also tanker offload.
Pump Centre Exhibition
Chem Resist has just returned from exhibiting at the Pump Centre exhibition in Telford.
This is the fourth time Chem Resist has exhibited and also the first opportunity to showcase the new range of ChemiGuard® products – tanker offload and dosing systems.
All ChemiGuard® cabinets are lockable, manufactured from moulded UV stable plastics and can be customised to suit individual customer requirements.
