Low-wear conveyance of industrial waste water: Robust rotary lobe and progressing cavity pumps make water treatment easier

Used service water from industrial processes is one of the most problematic types of waste water due to its composition, which is often very demanding for conveying systems. In order to enable problem-free treatment of this kind of waste water in spite of this, NETZSCH Pumpen & Systeme GmbH has developed special models of its TORNADO® T2 rotary lobe pump which withstand a really wide variety of media: the T.Envi® is specially designed for a long service life with minimum wear, so that it can also convey extremely abrasive media without any problem. A large German concrete works has been using this solution since April 2015 to transport its mineral waste water and has so far not recorded any relevant signs of wear. In contrast, the centrifugal submersible pump which had been used previously lasted scarcely half a year. more
