Pacificorp’s Jim Bridger Plant in Wyoming has chosen Larox peristaltic pumps for its water treatment.

The Larox single-roller design was chosen to replace the competition due to its design and longer hose life.

The plant utilises four cooling towers and the water used in the process needs to be treated with sodium hypochlorite to prevent the growth of algae.

There is one pump per cooling tower and, even though the typical flow of sodium hypochlorite is only about 0.75 litres/min, at times it needs to be ramped up to over 3.8 litre/min.

The plant previously had an old shoe-hose-pump design installed.

These pumps leaked the corrosive material at the connections and the hoses would only last them about three months.

Larox pump was chosen because of the single-roller design, as well as the improved connections.

Since the replacement, Jim Bridger has not had any leakage and the hoses are lasting them three to six times longer.

As a result of this improvement, they have purchased more Larox pumps for their acid and caustic applications.
