Press Release Summary:
Open-hopper BTH Pump transports materials up to 3 million cp and municipal wastewater sludge with over 50% solids. Feed auger operates separately from pump rotor shaft, allowing auger to operate concentrically and to be driven at speed that is independent from pump speed. Design completely separates fluid shearing action from pumping rate. It also reduces bridging inside pump because auger completely cleans casing walls.
Original Press Release:
New Pump for Viscous Products and Sludge Cake
seepex has developed a new type of open hopper pump to transport extremely viscous products and dewatered sludge cake. The pump can transport materials up to three million cPs and municipal wastewater sludge with over 50% solids. It has been used on mineral slurry cakes from plate-and-frame filter presses with over 80% solids and waste sludge up to 45% consistency. It can also be used to mix CaO with biosolids to meet EPA land application requirements.
The new design utilizes a feed auger that operates completely separately from the pump rotor shaft. This allows the auger to operate concentrically and to be driven at a speed that is independent from the pump speed. The design completely separates
the fluid shearing action from the pumping rate. It also reduces bridging inside the pump because the auger completely cleans the casing walls. It also feeds the pumping elements in a more positive manner than augers that rotate eccentrically. Combined
with the feed tube that is standard on most seepex designs, the BTH operates at higher volumetric efficiencies than other pumps.
The new BTH is available in a variety of materials and has the same wearing parts as other seepex pumps. Parts are manufactured or stocked in the USA and around the world, so maintenance or downtimes are minimal. Patents have been applied for but the new BTH pump is available immediately for sales to customers that
have the critical need to transport very thick materials. For further information, contact: seepex, Inc., 511 Speedway Dr., Enon, OH 45323, www.seepex.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, 1-800-695-3659.
