A disposal company was looking for a high performance pump for a tanker. A number of different media is to be transported with the tanker and the customer wanted a pump which would cope well with solvents, waste oil, sludge and various chemicals. The pump also had to have a compact design.
The customer opted for a Boerger Rotary Lobe Pump. The very compact, space-saving pump is powered by a hydraulic motor. The tanker can be filled and drained using the same pipe system since the rotary lobe pump is reversible. The Boerger Rotary Lobe Pump is extremely easy to maintain. (MIP=Maintenance in Place). The quick-release cover means that the rotor can be replaced in a matter of minutes. This proves great benefit for the disposal company as they have different rotors which could be installed in the rotary lobe pump depending on the medium in use at the time. This gave them the perfect rotor for each medium and avoided any unnecessary wear. The customer is very satisfied with the Boerger pump.
