A producer of heavy-media separators and secondary specification aluminium alloys has chosen a Flowrox peristaltic hose pump to replace a centrifugal pump at its facility in the US.

An LPP-T65 peristaltic pump has been installed to control a thickener underflow.

This pump runs at a variable speed to control solids content and feeds the non-ferrous metallic fines to a centrifuge for classification and separation.

Controlled by a variable-frequency drive, the flow rates fluctuate between 150 and 340 litres per minute to maintain the solids content from 50–60 per cent to a centrifuge.

The LPP-T pump can also see solids content up to 85 per cent after shutdown periods.

Key benefits of product application

  • The Flowrox pump was chosen to replace a centrifugal pump thanks to its steady volumetric pumping and its ability to handle fluctuations in solid contents.
  • In addition, the pump offers reverse-flow capabilities (clear blockage and the injection of water to the bottom of the thickener to reduce mole holing).
  • The use of the LPP-T pump has increased the overall efficiency of the centrifuge process.
