The installation by seepex of a complete conveying system of 18 seepex progressive cavity pumps has rid a British cosmetic manufacturer of unsatisfactory dosing problems and cut costs. 


For this British manufacturer of household items such as shampoos and detergents, various ingredients are mixed together to precise formulas in a mixing system to form the individual finished products. Pumps transport the ingredients to the mixing system.  Within this framework it is crucial that the viscous ingredients are transported with constant pressure and low pulsation to ensure precise dosing and consistent finished product. Unsatisfactory pulsation and dosing issues had been an ongoing problem with the diaphragm metering pumps in place, so it was agreed that a major overhaul was needed. seepex came up with the ideal solution.


The huge benefits of the new seepex system immediately became clear. The seepex progressive cavity pump solution not only offers virtually pulsation-free conveying and precise dosing but the compact, state of the art BN pump design make the them both service friendly and cost efficient to run.


Two years on the seepex pumps continue to run smoothly with minimal maintenance.


seepex manufacture a range of progressive cavity pumps, macerators and control systems for the pulsation-free transfer of even viscous, aggressive and abrasive products. The modular pump range offers tailored pump solutions and options from 7 groups and 27 ranges. Flows ranging from 0.1 l/h up to 500m³/h are available independent of discharge pressure or the DS content of the product. Differential pressures up to 48 bar are available and higher for special applications.
