A client required a dual AOD pump system, on polypropylene base, which was to be used for pumping sea water with occasional solids from a 3 metre deep sump pit.
Sea water is extremely corrosive and thus all parts of the pump system had to be corrosive resistant.
We designed, manufactured and assembled a pump system consisting of two Graco Husky 2200 polypropylene AOD pumps with neoprene elastomers complete with suction-discharge pipework and air inlet pipework, all mounted on a polypropylene base.
Highlight of the project – Dual AOD Pump System for Sea Water Application
- The complete pump system apart from air inlet pipework was manufactured in polypropylene including the base as requested by the client. Air inlet pipework was manufactured in 316SS.
- Pumps suction and discharge pipework complete with valves were uPVC schedule 80 to suit the client’s requirement.
- The system also included stainless steel solenoid valves and filter regulators for air inlet pipework to control pump operation.
