Pumping abrasive fillers safely


Abrasive fillers used in pulp and paper plants present no challenges for Watson-Marlow positive displacement pumps. The design of our pumps provides:

Precipitated Calcium Carbonate and other clay-based slurries can damage and even destroy some pump types. This results in costly process downtime and product loss through leakage. Bredel hose pumps and Watson-Marlow peristaltic pumps are built to handle abrasive slurries without risk of leakage. The product is securely contained within the tube or hose. No moving parts come into contact with the filler. This minimises maintenance requirements, resulting in savings in cost and time.
