Global supply chain shortages prevented one of our customer’s bulk chemical supply from being delivered via railcar. They were able to purchase the chemical in 55-gallon drums as an alternative and needed a pump unit capable of line stripping to maximize product recovery. They also requested a run-dry capacity in the event a technician did not stop the pump in time.
Our engineered solution included a Mouvex C-Series pump coupled to a Nord gear reducer and a WEG explosion-proof motor, basket strainer, ball valves, and interconnecting piping. The self-priming, sealless Mouvex pump offered run-dry capabilities along with a leak-free design to combat spills and harmful chemical vapor. The customer was very pleased with the safety features and amount of vacuum the pump was able to pull.
