When no off-the-shelf pumping system or product is suitable for your process, Verder UK can provide a bespoke solution.
In conjunction with the Verder project team, your process can be examined, considering the fluids that require handling, the duties involved and the end goal of the process. With a large number of projects created for chemical plants, wastewater treatment facilities, bio-gas production and freshwater canal systems, the Verder team has wide knowledge and experience of fluids and processes.
Examples of our work include a chemical injection skid featuring two mag drive pumps for the delivery of chemicals as part of the manufacture of lithographic plates for printing. The mag drive pumps were non-metallic for compatibility with the aggressive fluids.
ATEX trolley system for chemical pilot plant
A chemical manufacturer required a pumping solution for their pilot plant that required the transfer of various aggressive chemicals between the process and IBC. The system had to be ATEX-compliant and be easily portable by one person.
The system created featured a Verderair Pure AODD pump; a non-metallic pump machined from a piece of pure material, in this case conductive PTFE. This material choice allowed the pump to handle the different chemicals and meet the ATEX compliance.
The pump and piping system were linked to an air filter regulator with earthing clip during operation. The pump and piping was installed on a stainless-steel trolley with anti-static castors.
ATEX chemical transfer skid
A chemical transfer skid suitable for ATEX environments was created for a chemical manufacturer. The skid was required to be easily mobile and workable in confined spaces. The design incorporated a compact rig with two conductive AODD pumps. The unit had an earthing device and was able to be lifted easily by two men and/or basic manual lifting equipment.
Catchpot sump trolley
A water company required a highly mobile pumping solution for emptying chemical catchpots. The chemical fluids would vary and be abrasive, containing small solids, such as grit.
The Verder UK team produced a trolley design to provide the mobility for one man to be able to transport it around the site. Each trolley system features a Verderflex Dura peristaltic pump with an EPDM hose, chosen for its capacity to handle abrasive fluids, solids and a mixture of chemicals, as well as provide suction lift from the catchpot.
The pump is connected to a suction and discharge hose, which can be lowered in to the catchpot and transferred into an IBC or suitable container. The transformer allows the system to be plugged into a 110V or 230V power supply.
The components are mounted on a robust custom-built trolley and castors.
