The processing of plant waste or treatment is a critical function within in some types of food and beverage manufacturing plants. When designing your waste treatment you will need to consider such factors as the percent solids content‚ chemical composition‚ flow rates and abrasives.
The Colfax Allweiler branded progressing cavity (also known as mono screw or eccentric screw) pumps are commonly used in this application. The design and operational principles of the progressing cavity pump lends itself to pumping liquids with high solids content. Moreover‚ the removable stator design facilitates ease of maintenance and minimizes downtime.
The progressing cavity pumps promoted by Colfax feature an equal wall stator design. An equal wall design provides lower starting and operating torque reducing power consumption and noise of operation. Moreover‚ it offers a more stable flow and higher pressure capabilities versus the unequal walled counterparts.
