What are process pumps?

Process pumps play a vital role in the chemical industry, being essential for the safe and efficient processing of corrosive, abrasive, and sometimes hazardous fluids. These pumps are designed to ensure continuous and reliable operation, fundamental to keeping production processes running and ensuring the quality of the final product. 

Their ability to handle a wide range of working conditions and materials makes them indispensable in the manufacturing, treatment, and distribution of chemical products.

Features of Tecnium process pumps (BN Series)

The BN series process pumps from Tecnium are designed in accordance with EN 22858 / ISO-5199 and ISO 2858 standards, ensuring standardisation and reliability for continuous, high-demand operations in the chemical industry. These pumps are capable of handling flows up to 1,500 m³/h and pumping heights up to 150 metres head, offering solutions for managing corrosive and abrasive fluids thanks to their construction with resistant plastic materials. 

The selection of mechanical seals is extensive, chemically and mechanically adapting to the handled fluids, with options of internal and external single seals, as well as double external seals, to maximise efficiency and safety.

Furthermore, the robustness of these pumps is complemented by a series of unique technical advantages. The transmission of mechanical torque to the impeller through a key and a large-surface steel core, which ensures an efficient energy transfer and minimises wear, is an example of it.

The mechanical seal seat, designed to prevent pressure on the plastic body, along with the removable shaft sleeve, independent of the impeller, facilitates maintenance and prolongs the pump’s lifespan. Moreover, the mechanical seal cover effectively prevents the dispersion of corrosive liquids, protecting both personnel and the work environment. These features make Tecnium process pumps not only highly efficient and reliable for critical applications in the chemical industry but also offer a long-term economic solution due to their design aimed at minimising maintenance, even under the most demanding working conditions.

The ability of these pumps to be configured with various materials and mechanical seals makes them suitable for a wide range of applications, ensuring chemical compatibility and operational efficiency in equal measure.

What should we consider for proper maintenance of process pumps?

For proper maintenance of process pumps, it is crucial to consider the pump’s design and materials, ensuring their compatibility with the handled fluids. Regular monitoring of critical parts, such as mechanical seals, and checking the correct operation of the transmission system are key. Tecnium also recommends maintaining a spare parts inventory to minimise downtime and ensure a quick response to any repair or replacement needs, thereby promoting the longevity and reliability of the equipment.
