Give our industry specialists a call today.
One of our partners is a major paper mill in the United States and they were having huge problems with their bark ash slurry application. This is a tough, aggressive and abrasive type of application and it was chewing through their existing pumps every two to three hours. Obviously, this was costing them a lot in downtime, spare parts and water because the pumps they had in their process couldn’t handle the high concentrations of solids. They were diluting the slurry with water just to have their pumps be able to pump. Even at about 6% solids by weight, their existing pumps were still unable to handle the slurries that they were putting through it. Hevvy Pumps had a solution and it was installed at the next scheduled shutdown. We were able to get the solid content up by more than five times. This saved them a lot of costs in not only downtime, but water usage, and this is now one of their best pumps in operation.
