Pentair Southern Cross SX40 solids vacuum pump

Friday, 06 March, 2015 | Supplied by: Pentair

The Pentair Southern Cross SX40 composite slurry pump is designed as a lightweight unit for the transfer of light slurries and being a 100% composite vessel material allows for pumping of extremely aggressive and corrosive slurry products.

Recently, Pentair Southern Cross conducted a field trial of its SX40 Solids Vacuum pump in conjunction with its regional authorised reseller M/s Hydroflo Solutions, Cardiff at the Steel Mills in Mayfield, NSW.

The task at hand was to provide a simple and safe solution to emptying several sumps containing steel scale within the mill process plant. Up until the time of the field trial, the steel mill operators were manually transferring the scale and were starting to experience workplace health issues.

The SX40 air-operated pump provided the solution to emptying the sumps. Requiring only 80 cfm of air at an operating pressure of 100 psi, the site personnel were able to use the stainless steel pick-up wand to suck up the scale product and transfer into a mobile hopper for discharge off-site. Due to the lightweight and portability features of the pump, it can be deployed at several of the steel mill’s problem sumps.

Being 100% intrinsically safe, having no moving parts, being easy to set up and operate the pump, the mill has been able to reduce potential workplace health and safety issues with its operators, allowing them to concentrate on their steel ball production.
