Amarinth supplies pumps to British Sugar and expands UK operations
Amarinth, a company specialising in the design, application and manufacture of centrifugal pumps and associated equipment to the oil & gas, petrochemical, chemical and industrial markets, has announced it has delivered new pumps to British Sugar, expanding its organisation into the UK manufacturing sector in the process.
British Sugar turned to Amarinth when they needed new pumps for their sugar production process at their Newark factory in Nottinghamshire. During the extraction of sugar from beet, the 'thin juice' sugary water from the purification process is pumped through a falling film juice evaporation process which boils the water off to produce syrup known as 'thick juice' which then passes to the crystallisation process. A stainless steel impeller was designed to pump the sticky syrup reliably and an AES CDSA mechanical seal was added to contain the fluid. Hydrostatic and performance tests were completed at
Amarinth's comprehensive facility before delivery within an 18-week deadline.
This was the first order from British Sugar taken by Richard Barnes, Amarinth's new UK sales manager. Amarinth is currently expanding its operations to meet demand from the UK manufacturing sector.
