World’s Best Pumps For The Chemical Industry

Proudly Distributed To The Australian Industry By Hydro Innovations

Reliable pumps and the correct materials for the Chemical Industry

Selecting the right pumps with the correct materials is critical for reliability, low maintenance costs, and long service life. Hydro Innovations has the right pumps for chemical transfer, corrosive wastewater pumping, or pumping of viscous product or waste sludge.

For pumping chemicals, we have either a Gorman-Rupp rotary gear pump or a Ragazzini peristaltic pump to offer. The selection will depend on the type of chemical, whether it has solid particles in the fluid, and what pressures and temperature the liquid is.

For corrosive wastewater transfer, Gorman-Rupp self-priming pumps are available in a range of materials, including CD4MCuN, which is a duplex stainless steel.

Exclusive to Hydro Innovations

Hydro Innovations is proud to represent Ragazzini in Australia. Ragazzini is a family owned and run business, based in Faenza, Italy, with roots that date back to 1921. Their values of ethics, integrity, honesty and trust are built into every product and every application/selection.

With seven different hose materials, pumps are capable of pumping many types of acid, acid slurries, many types of bases, hydrocarbons and many other chemicals. And because of their construction, they are able to pump waste sludge and slurry, even if these contain solid particles.

Ragazzini Chemical Transfer

Ragazzini peristaltic pumps are ideal for either chemical dosing or chemical transfer. Their selection of hoses and flange materials enable them to pump acids, bases, hydrocarbons and other chemicals.

With no valves or seals to foul or fail and no moving parts in contact with the fluid, makes the Ragazzini pump simple to operate and maintain. And because of the “roller-on-bearings” design, pumps do not need to be filled with expensive and messy lubricant, enabling them to be fitted with leak detectors to minimise losses or contamination of expensive products.

Pumps can deliver flows as low as 0.2 litres per hour, or as high as 3000 litres per minute. They can also operate on a suction lift, making them suitable for pumping from underground tanks, and they can deliver pressures to 15 bar.

G Series Chemical Transfer

Gorman-Rupp G Series rotary gear pumps are ideal for transferring a range of chemicals. They are available in cast iron, cast steel or SS316 stainless steel construction. These pumps have the broadest range of sealing options, enabling them to transfer products with high temperature, high viscosity, or requiring high pressures.

The G Series is the most customizable gear pump on the market, with designers able to choose bushing materials, sealing materials and elastomers to perform best with the media to be pumped. Products like resins, adhesives, fuels, oils, paper coatings, acids and more, can be reliably transferred with these pumps.

Thanks to the materials used and the right bearing choices, G Series pumps can deliver pressures up to 20.7 bar, making them ideal for pumping products over long distances, through smaller discharge lines, or through filtration or other process systems.

Super T Wastewater Pumps

Gorman-Rupp Super T Series self-priming centrifugal pumps are the safest, most reliable and easiest to maintain wastewater pumps available. Being located “high and dry” above the wastewater allows safe and easy access to operators for monitoring and maintenance.

They are also available in a wide variety of materials to enable them to pump wastewater, containing corrosive and/or abrasive materials. Materials such as CD4MCuN [duplex stainless steel] enable them to operate in highly corrosive applications.

Super T Series pumps can provide flows from 5 L/s through to 200 L/s, and pressures to 40 metres. They are also able to operate on suction lifts to 7.6 metres.

If the wastewater contains stringy solids, Super T Series pumps are available with “Eradicator” or “Eradicator Plus” technology to minimise downtime when handling these problematic applications.

Super U Effluent Pumps

Gorman-Rupp Super U Series pumps make excellent effluent pumps. They can operate “high-and-dry” above the water level, can handle solids up to 30mm, and have very high efficiencies – making them the energy-efficient choice. They can also be manufactured in corrosion resistant material [CD4MCuN] and are easy to service and maintain.

Super U Series pumps can deliver flows from 5 l/s through to 80 l/s, and can produce pressures in excess of 50 metres.

Ragazzini Sludge Pump

For reliable pumping of sludge, a Ragazzini peristaltic pump is a good choice. The “peristalsis” action of the pump enables it to transport even thick sludge. If the sludge contains solid particles, the particles simply travel down the created cavities within the tubular element.

If the sludge is corrosive, Ragazzini has seven different hose materials to choose from, enabling them to pump sludges or slurries with acids, bases or hydrocarbons in the media.

These pumps are simple in construction, having only one part [the hose] in contact with the pumped fluid. This means there is little maintenance required except for the occasional hose change.

Depending on the model, pumps can deliver up to 3000 litres per minute, and can deliver pressures to 15 bar. They can also operate on suction lifts up to 9 metres and can run dry without damage.
