UK-based pump manufacturer Tomlinson Hall’s liquid ring vacuum pump, Liquivac, is to be distributed in Scandinavia by Swedish company Lyma Kemiteknik.
Part of the Indutrade group, Lyma Kemiteknik is a specialist in corrosive and abrasive flow technology.
It offers a range of products from leading pump brands, as well as valves and pipes, and has a long-standing relationship with Tomlinson Hall.
Liquivac, which can handle combinations of liquids, gases, and fine solids, and can perform in a wide range of applications, will be distributed in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark by the firm.
Liquivac pumps are widely used by utilities companies, chemical processors, food and drink producers, environmental engineers, desalination plants, and sea life centres, and have a proven track record across a wide range of industry sectors.
Recognised for its durability and reliability, Liquivac’s ring vacuum design can accommodate solids of up to 2mm in diameter during the transfer of liquids, air, foam, emulsions, and vapours.
The pump’s cast iron or 316 stainless steel pump body, combined with a stainless steel rotating element, makes Liquivac robust in operation, and it is able to transfer volatile liquids or collect waste.
Liquivac can also be used in pump priming systems to increase process efficiency and to protect larger vacuum pumps from damage and it can also provide vacuum cooling during chemical processing.
The pump can operate from long suction lines – 500m or more – enabling the pump to be positioned a considerable distance away from a hazardous site, or source of effluent, and can be easily transported due to its small size.
In seawater extraction operations, Liquivac can work with sub-sand intakes, which draw seawater through the beach and make use of sand’s natural filtering properties.
Liquivac is manufactured at Tomlinson Hall’s facility in Billingham, Northeast England.
