General Applications for CANAMIX Peristaltic Pumps
Peristaltic pumps are widely used in Minerals processing plants. Operated in the correct design environment of pressure, temperature and flow they provide a low maintenance solution for many pumping duties.
Thickener underflow, reagent, flocculent and cyanide dosing and transfer, are some of the duties the pumps are ideally equipped to handle.
Their sealless design and low operating cost makes them an ideal alternate to centrifugal pumps. Add to this their ability to pump corrosive, abrasive and viscous products and their expanding use in processing plants throughout the world, is explained.
Chemical manufacturing plants often require the transfer of highly aggressive or corrosive chemical to mixing tanks and reactors. Peristaltic pumps provide a simple, low maintenance alternative to other pumps which use seals, stuffing boxes or glands. As there is no contact between the product and the pump’s casing the most aggressive chemicals can be safely transferred. With no mechanical seals to maintain and service and no product leakage, peristaltic pumps are a reliable alternative to conventional chemical pumps.
The construction and tunneling industries often have the requirement to move large quantities of wet sand, drilling mud and other slurries. This is sometimes done by using wheel barrows, manual labour, front end loaders and other labour intensive methods.
Using a properly designed sump and Peristaltic pump, this process can be vastly simplified, saving time, money and labour.
