Spring is here. A welcome time for most, it brings warming temperatures, rain, and seeing green peek out from the snow for the first time in months. However, the change of seasons can be challenging for the concrete industry.
NFM is an innovative provider of extrusion systems and solutions. In order to meet a variety of production demands for the rubber and plastics industries, they found themselves in need of a pump that could accurately inject high viscosity polymer solutions at high flow rates into a twin screw extruder, a system that includes a set of two parallel screws that continuously rotate inside of a barrel.
When engineers need to choose a pump, two broad categories come to mind: mechanically-sealed pumps and sealless magnetic drive pumps. And across industries, pumps with mechanical seals are seen far more commonly because not much is known about the sealless pump. But what’s the difference between these two varieties and what are the benefits to going sealless? This article will explain each and the advantages of going from sealed to sealless.
Milton Roy has introduced its new Primeroyal® series, their most powerful API 675 pumps yet. Primeroyal pumps are capable of working even in the most challenging environments. Their design, which meets rigorous API 675 standards, offers a range of features and a reduced footprint, which allows it to deliver high volumes of flow and pressure while ensuring accurate and repeatable chemical delivery.
The United States economy relies on infrastructure. From roads and bridges to railways, waterways, and electrical grids, the country depends on it to stimulate economic growth, transport goods from one place to another, and connect people. It allows transportation, internet connection, electrical supply, and directly affects public health by providing safe drinking water, eliminating pollution in bodies of water, and eliminating waste.
“Which is better: an air-operated pump or a centrifugal pump?”
This is a question we get all the time, and the answer is: it depends.
