Abstract

Where high viscosity liquids are required to be pumped at relatively low flow rates and pressures, the challenge is always going to be identifying a suitable pump type. Lubricating oils, bitumen, asphalt, molasses, grease, emulsions, resins and other similarly viscous products demand positive displacement pumps that have low shear characteristics in order to avoid altering the balance of the product. Jim Miller, Product Manager at SPX Process Equipment Plenty Mirrlees Pumps reports.
