Chemical Industry

The chemical industry impacts our lives daily. Without it, countless products so familiar to us could not exist like car components, computers, cleaning supplies, and dental prosthetics.

Pumping chemicals: Benefit by replacing the centrifugal pump

The chemical industry includes diverse applications that result in the need to convey an extensive variety of products, including such substances as softeners, adhesives, urea, dispersions, hydrogen peroxides, kaolin, PVC, PVA, resins, and titanium dioxide. With over 150,000 NETZSCH pumps in the field over the last five decades for the chemical industry alone, NETZSCH offers the experience you need to match your requirements.

This pump enables you to pump chemicals safely and reliably in explosive areas

For the decision process, the unique requirements and operating conditions were taken into consideration. Therefore, TORNADO® T.Proc® rotary lobe pump was chosen. Thanks to the all-metal design, even chemicals diluted with solvents can be pumped without reducing the pump performance. Compared to centrifugal pumps, the service life of all components in contact with the product is significantly increased. In addition, a universally applicable special elastomer was used for the seals, which has a high chemical and temperature resistance due to its composition. Since the pump operates in an area declared as an explosive area, the pump must not run dry under any circumstances. For this reason, a pressure and a dry-running safety device have been integrated. Therefore, the pump switches off automatically in case of a malfunction.

Pumps made of conventional materials such as stainless steel and cast iron are not always appropriate, especially in the chemical industry so NETZSCH offers NEMO PUMPS® in materials such as duplex stainless steel, Hastelloy®, Uranus® or titanium. Your NETZSCH team of experts will help you find the perfect solution for your specific application.
