Pumping abrasive products

Pemo pump instead of agitator

The problem
When a company in the Botlek (The Netherlands) made ​​use of an agitator to prevent product settling into a pit, their agitator blades lasted less than three month's due to the highly abrasive nature of the product.

The solution
By using a Pemo pump with attached agitator, the need for a seperate agitator was eliminated and resulted in a lifetime of this solution since 2003.

The second pit is provided with an identical pump, but now with a so-called "Jet streamer", which also essentially eliminated the Pemo agitator. This second solution has been running for more than 7 years.
