An energy service company that refurbishes catalytic converters for power plants previously used two 29 mm peristaltic pumps to move lime slurry at 20% to 30% concentration for each of their two water treatment applications. These two peristaltic hose pumps were taking up a large portion of the workspace. In addition, the hoses on the peristaltic pumps needed to be replaced every 2 to 6 weeks, which was backing up production and increasing maintenance and repair costs. The company was looking for a solution to use their space more efficiently, decrease maintenance, and still maintain production flow rates.
By installing one Husky 1050e from Graco into their water treatment facility, the energy service company was able to shut down both peristaltic pumps on a line and rely solely on the 1050e for lime slurry supply. They were surprised to discover that the Husky 1050e could achieve the same flow rates as the two pumps that it replaced
