A sugar producer was looking for a reliable pump which could cope with the high viscosity and abrasiveness of magma. The producer decided on a Börger Rotary Lobe Pump.
The magma hardens if it does not keep flowing. To protect and keep the the seals clean in the Boerger Rotary Lobe Pump, a rinsing unit was integrated in the pump which rinsed the seals when in standstill to prevent the build-up of magma on the sliding surface. The Börger Rotary Lobe Pump is fitted with linear stainless steel rotors. These are resistant against the sugar crystals which occur in the magma and ensure a long service of the rotary lobe pump.
The customer is highly satisfied with the Börger Rotary Lobe Pump and has since ordered more pumps from Börger.
