Chemical transfer & dosing pumps for aggressive fluids
As a supplier of chemical pumps for well over 10 years, we know that getting the right solution for your chemical process is absolutely vital. A pump that is incompatible with your chemical can result in swelling, dissolving or brittleness, and ultimately it leaking and failing. This is why special consideration needs to be given to the materials of a chemical transfer pump, along with the temperature and concentration of the fluid being handled. Whether you require a chemical dosing pump, a barrel emptying pump or one for tank to tank transfer, Castle Pumps have a tried and tested solution for your chemical process.
To make sure that the chemical transfer pump we select will offer you a long, trouble-free service life, we will ask for full fluid disclosure or an MSDS sheet so that thorough consideration can be given to the materials. Send us your enquiry today.
The Importance of Chemical Compatibility
Ever wondered why you couldn’t just have a pump that is suitable for all fluids? This is where chemical compatibility comes into play. The actual impact of chemical compatibility depends on how resistant the material is to the medium it comes into contact with. Therefore, should a pump be pumping a liquid that is incompatible with the material that it is constructed of, a problem arises
Want to find more information about the effects of chemical incompatibility and how to select a pump that is compatible with your fluid? Read our article and learn everything you need to know about chemical compatibility.
Past Chemical Pump Project
Castle Pumps have been specifying fit for purpose chemical transfer pumps solutions for over 10 years, meaning that we have problem solved an application just like yours before.
In this case study, read how we supply one of the UK’s largest frozen food manufacturers with low maintenance air operated diaphragm pumps for handling alkaline-based cleaning detergents around their factories. Reliability is key in this application as the chemicals they are pumping are for cleaning down their plant equipment after use.
