The water contains sand and shells which could easily block or damage less hard-wearing pumps

Pump manufacturer Boerger has had its technology installed at a UK shellfish company's facility in Fleetwood, on the north-west coast of England.

The rotary lobe vane pumps are being used to enhance production by processing saltwater containing shells and sand.

Made of stainless steel, the 3Kw PL 200 Classic pumps operate at 20m3 and are fitted with optimum rotors developed specifically for difficult applications.

The facility previously used a progressive cavity pump for the application, which was unsuccessful.
