A leading Asian paint manufacturer required a pump in a new production plant for transferring highly-sensitive latex-based emulsions. The emulsions needed to be pumped from storage tanks into the production plant. The pumps also needed to have a reduced width, slow speeds and a low NPSH value. The customer's priority was that the pumps would be easy to clean when changing from product to product.
After comprehensive tests with pumps from different manufacturers in an existing plant, the customer decided to install 22 Boerger Rotary Lobe Pumps in the new plant . The medium wetted parts of the pump are made of stainless steel. Premium stainless steel rotors are also used. The MIP (Maintenance in Place) design of the pumps allows the pumps to be easily maintained and cleaned.
