Flowrox LPP-D pumps in Chemical dosing

LPP-D pumps pumping high viscosity medium in chemical dosing application

A Finnish chemical company Surfactor Oy faced challenges with their membrane pumps dosing phenolic and melamine resin and high viscous pigment paste to produce plywood surface films at their phenolic coating factory. Factory has a long history with manufacturing surface films also known as paper saturated with phenolic resin. It is commonly used to coat plywood and other timber panels e.g. in construction and vehicle industry.

Flowrox peristaltic hose pumps were introduced to the customer and soon it was decided to order one test pump to see how hose pumps would manage the dosing. After only a few weeks operation customer was convinced of the better operation and reliability of the hose pump and 5 more hose pumps were ordered to replace membrane pumps.

Customer stated that Flowrox peristaltic hose pumps are the best solution, as they are designed to pump high viscous medium, whereas conventional pumps had challenges with that. Customer is also enthused as the maintenance is easy and fast compared to the previous pumps.
