Mouvex to highlight eccentric disc pump technology at ACHEMA 2015

Mouvex, part of PSG, a Dover company and a manufacturer of positive displacement pumps, will be displaying various models of its eccentric disc pump technologies in hall 8, stand D37 at the upcoming ACHEMA 2015 show, June 15-19 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

Specifically, the features and benefits of Mouvex pumps will be highlighted as they relate to enhancing product recovery capabilities in chemical engineering and hygienic pharmaceutical, food-and-beverage and personal-care/cosmetic processing operations. Mouvex launched its ongoing Product Recovery Initiative in June 2014 as a way to provide manufacturers and processors with a complete suite of market-specific tools.

In chemical engineering and hygienic manufacturing, product recovery refers to the high utilisation (or yield) of products while substantially eliminating waste—and thereby increasing profits—that would otherwise remain in suction or discharge process lines during changeovers or at the end of production runs. The key to optimising product recovery and, by extension, 'profit recovery', is identifying and employing pumping technology that can be trusted to reliably strip suction or discharge lines of valuable raw materials and saleable end products.

Mouvex eccentric disc pumps—particularly the SLC, SLS and Micro C models—are ideal for optimising product-recovery applications because of their ability to pump air, which creates a vacuum effect on the pump's suction side and a compressor effect on the discharge side. This results in a plug effect that pushes a complete product 'plug' out of the piping. This enables Mouvex pumps to recovery product from transfer lines at rates of more than 90% on the suction side of the pump and from 60% to 80% or more on the discharge side.
