“I could recommend Flowrox pumps for any filter feed application.”Flowrox LPP-T hose pumps are easy to incorporate into any control system.CURRENTA has been extremely satised with operation and reliability of Flowrox pumps.Successfully isolated solids from waste water generated by ue-gas scrubbing. When pumps operate smoothly, lters can do their job.Flexible production through automationCURRENTA provides services tovarious operations and their dierentdemanding applications within the large CHEMPARK area. Filters andpumps need to adapt quickly to changing process conditions.“Slurry in the ltration plant varies as we have numerous types of waste from multiple producers. Applications vary from diused lithium batteries to pharmaceutical waste. Filtration plant needs to adapt to continuous process changes receiving non-homogeneous feed from ue-gas scrubbing yet oer 100 % reliable and safe operation. It is a demanding application as the ltrate needs to be clean to be released back into the process or the river Rhine,” explains Michael Schulte, Technical Foreman of incineration plants at CHEMPARK Leverkusen, CURRENTA.“e application is very abrasive and requires high performance and resilience from the process equipment. As in any startup, we have faced some challenges. However, on rare occasions when a pump has failed, we have always received excellent and immediate support from Flowrox,” adds James Babbé, the CEO & Founder of Aquachem GmbH. Aquachem is focused on developing and designing fully automatic lter presses used in this application.Matching process requirements with Flowrox process equipment“We have been using Flowrox pumps since 2009. ey insure steady and reliable feed, which is essential for our unique fully automatic lter solutions. If the pump does not work, ltration equipment does not run either. Pump is the heart of the movement,” Babbé explains. Flowrox LPP-T hose pumps allow continuous monitoring and are easy to incorporate into any control system. “We are familiar the with superior performance of Flowrox pumps. In 2008 we built a new tank farm for uid waste treatment. We needed reliable pumps for challenging application which could handle extreme duty cycles. We rst looked for joint membrane pumps which t our requirements to pump 35 m3/h / 154 gpm. However, we ended up ordering Flowrox LPP-T transfer pumps and they have performed to our expectations,” Schulte explains. Professional and localized customer service“I could recommend Flowrox pumps for any lter feed applications. At Aquachem we are impressed by professionality of the company. Beyond product benets and technical features that are superior to its competitors, I also appreciate the openness when working with Flowrox. ey provide an outstanding representative network, localized customer service and utmost professionalism in everything that is being done,” Babbé complements.7

Peristaltic pumpsFlowrox heavy duty hose pumps are designed for the toughest industrial applications. ey are ideal for demanding processes involving abrasive, corrosive, viscous or crystallizing media with high solids content.Advanced rolling designe operating principle of the Flowrox hose pumps is based on the peristaltic eect. As the cylindrical rotor rotates along the hose, the process medium gets pushed forward through the hose. At the same time, the hose behind the compression point reverts to its original circular shape creating a suction eect at the pump inlet port. As a result, the hose bore is re-lled Flowrox heavy duty hose pumps from features to benefitswith the medium. No backward ow or slip can occur as the hose is squeezed tight by the roller.Due to their technical features, Flowrox hose pumps provide exact ow per revolution. ey also incorporate an advanced rolling design, which eliminates friction, maximizes hose life and lowers energy consumption. Energy eciency, long hose life and low maintenance generates substantial savings during the life cycle of peristaltic pumps. Lifetime of Flowrox pumps’ hoses is 3-5 times longer than conventional hose pumps.Trailblazing pump technologyFlowrox LPP-T pumps are equipped with a patented hose ange and reliable in-line pipe connections, as well as a hose leak detection unit. Technical features• Only the hose is in contact with the medium• Positive displacement with no backflow• Single roller design that enables minimized friction• Low lubrication need, only 25% that of conventional peristaltic pumps• No overheating at high continuous flow rate• Dry run capability • Selfpriming up to full vacuumRolling pump design Save energy up to 40%Less friction 75% less glycerineLonger hose lifetime Less maintenancePump up to 80% solids→→→→Save water8

Comparison of Flowrox technologyFor transferring, dosing and metering e innovative Flowrox peristaltic pumps set the industry standard for peristaltic pump technology. Designed for heavy industrial duties, they are ideal for pumping diverse slurries and dosing a wide range of abrasive, corrosive, viscous or crystallizing media.Flowrox rolling technology is capable of operating in continuous duty with its maximum pressure and maximum flow in the same point. is is where the conventional pump compromises either on pressure or flow. Compared to Flowrox pumps, conventional hose pumps can only reach either half the ow or half the pressure in continuous duty. What is more, Flowrox pumps can perform even with high temperature media up to 95 ˚C / 203 ˚F. LPP-T pumps provide substantial savings through improved process performance and eciency,long service intervals and low maintenance costs. ey are manufactured using durable elastomers and advanced materials, making them perfect for pumping a wide range of media.Flowrox hose pump technology vs. conventional technologyFlow rate m3/h / gpm20 / 8818 / 7916 / 7014 / 6212 / 5310 / 448 / 356 / 264 / 182 / 90LPP-T65/2.5” 65 mm / 2.5 inch conventionalContinuous duty 24/7 at 10 bar / 150 psi pressurePatented adjustment mechanism senses hose wear when compression is readjusted. is helps to maximize hose lifetime and minimize the risk of over-compression. ere is no need for shimming.e LPP-T100 / LPP-T4” is one of the world’s largest hose pumps, with a maximum continuous ow of 100m3/h / 440 gpm.9

Progressive cavity pumpsFlowrox progressive cavity (PC) pumps are ideal for demanding industrial slurry and paste pumping applications, especially with highly viscous or shear sensitive liquids and sludges.Technical features• Combination of an elliptic rotor and a stator with even wall thickness• More pressure with less strain • Increased flow per revolution• Long rotor/stator lifetime• Less backflowAdvanced spiral technologyIn PC pumps, the pumped medium continuously shis spaces (progressing cavities) between the rotor and the stator, enabling nearly pulsation-free pumping. With Flowrox technology it is possible to deliver up to 10 bar / 150 psi of pressure per single stage. is is possible with our evenwall stator technology that forms the heart of the entire pump.rough advanced technology and precise design, Flowrox PC Pumps offer you significant savings by reducing pumping costs.Flowrox progressive cavity (PC) pumps from features to benefitsCustomer benefits• Over 30% higher pumping capacity compared to a conventional PC pump with same rpm• Save energy up to 15% compared to a conventional model• Minimized maintenance time enables the highest run time possible→→→Advanced product structure Longer maintenance intervalEvenwall® stator Higher pressure with RPM2/3 rotor geometry30% higher flow with same speed10

When the Flowrox PC pump performance is compared with conventional PC pumps, Flowrox 2/3 geometry pumping elements need less RPM than conventional 1/2 geometry pumping elements to achieve the same flow rate. Slower rotation speed guarantees less wear.11
