We’ve tested over 10,000 hoses in dozens of manufacturing facilities. The average failure rate of the hoses we test is 18%. That’s a lot of unwanted opportunity for safety issues, downtime, and inefficiencies in your process. Proper hose specification and maintenance are essential to consistent production output, efficient long-term fluid management and a safe and […]
Anderson Process has recently worked with another customer to solve their fluid transport and storage needs. Challenge: The customer was looking to move from drum and tote delivery of ethyl acetate to a centralized storage system. Solution: Anderson Process provided them with 2 outdoor 5,200 gallon double walled tanks and 2 indoor 500 gallon double […]
We are more than a pump distributor. We work closely with customers to provide solutions to any fluid handling applications, extending well beyond standard pumps and hose. This customer needed increased storage capabilities for their operation and turned to Anderson Process for a solution. Challenge: Our customer needed to expand storage capabilities for increased production. […]
Mechanical seals keep the fluid contained within pumps while the internal mechanical components move inside the stationary housing. When mechanical seals fail, the resulting leaks can cause extensive damage to the pump and often leaves large messes that can be significant safety hazards. Besides being a crucial component to a pump running efficiently, it is […]
Here is one of many style Gas Fuel Bowsers that our team custom built to be used on an assembly line to fill units that have missed the fuel station for any number of reasons. The unit is designed with a Wilden Pump, ground reel, level gauge and a Fill-Rite meter to dispense accurate amounts […]
Hose safety often does not get the attention it deserves. Proper hose and fitting selection are critical to the safety of both your people and your profits. If a hose fails in a manufacturing or industrial processing operation, the entire production line becomes compromised, putting expensive equipment, product and lives at risk. Choosing the right […]
Here is a cooling skid we just finished for a customer that is using the skid to cool engine coolant, oil, fuel and air at an engine manufacturer. We are pumping a 50% glycol mixture and cooling it down from 195°F to 133°F at 80 GPM. This was developed for a test stand that is […]
Do you need to cool, heat or maintain temperature of sensitive liquids? Reach out to us to help you size the right heat exchanger for your application. We have Xylem – Standard Xchange Pre-engineered Shell & Tube, Brazed or Fan units on the shelf ready to go or we can help you design a custom […]
We just designed and built two Blackmer SNP2 pump assemblies on wheels out of our Indianapolis location. These Stainless Steel Sliding Vane Pumps were built with Nord Gear Reducer’s and Baldor Motors. They were mounted on portable carts with polyurethane casters and fork pockets for easy of mobility. Our customer was looking for a portable […]
We just sent this cart out to a customer to get installed. We worked with this customer to design and build a solution for recycling used oil from a transmission test system and refine it for re-use. It is part of a larger transmission test system that is used for testing on several types of […]
Check out this gas skid that we pulled out of a Michigan automotive assembly plant. We completely tore down and refurbished the skid and it is now being installed at a Chicago automotive assembly plant. You can see by the original condition of skid that the biggest challenge was getting it to look new again […]
We recently finished and installed Phase 1 of an engineered, designed and built Stainless Steel platform system that will help assist in the manufacturing of product once completed for a local Food manufacturer. Phase 2 will consist of alterations to tanks and mixing equipment to improve the efficiency of food production. The platform system will […]
Here is a transmission fluid fill system that has helped provide a customer with the capabilities of filling multiple transmission fluids. Engineered by the Anderson Process Michigan ACI Systems Engineering Department and fabricated from the ground up by the Anderson Process Michigan Fabrication division. This is only one of two fill systems that have been […]
This skid was designed with a T-Mag magnetic drive centrifugal sealless pump, WEG explosion proof motor, Pentair filters and housings and Dixon cam and groove fittings. Through this combination, the skid is now capable of pumping product through a 20 micron pre-filter and then the final .2 micron filter at 50 GPM. Every component was […]
We just recently put the finishing touches on two complex cooling skids for a Wisconsin foundry that was installing a new line. They were designed to re-use spent cooling tower water, which would then run through one side of a Standard Xchange heat exchanger and then cool a glycol mixture on the other side of the Standard […]
Let us help you build a Metering cart for portability. This particular cart includes a Tuthill Stainless Steel meter with a mechanical read out and Dixon gauges and valves for control/shut off. It was completely custom made per the customer specifications.
Customer: Power Plant Need/Application: Customer was using 2 peristaltic hose pumps to meter water into a burner stack for pollution control with a third pump as back-up. This then made them have to change the hoses about every 5-6 weeks of use and had no way to control the water into the pumps. That was a big […]
Customer: Gearbox Manufacturer Need/Application: Customer wanted to meter pre-set amounts of oil into gearboxes from totes and have the system be fully portable. Solution: We made this possible by designing a custom skid that was made up of a Wilden pump, Blacoh pulsation dampeners, control panel with a Badger Meter batcher, meter, casters, hoses and a shut-off nozzle. The […]
Everything you need to know about Blacoh’s AODDampener is in this brief and informative video. Explore the many features and benefits, learn how the automatic air control works, and see how this new dampener performs under pressure.
We hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend! Be sure to checkout Volume 2 of BLACOH BUZZ where you will find “The Necessity of Fluid Control” Part 2 by Gary L. Cornell. To read Part 1 please revisit the last post from Anderson Process.
