Perfect use for diaphragm pumps
ABEL pumps have proven themselves especially powerful when used for various tasks in coal fired power stations throughout the world. One example is feeding filter presses with sludge from a flue-gas desulfurization plant. The, ABEL CM and HM piston diaphragm pumps have become the standard for high efficiency and long service life.
ABEL piston diaphragm pumps are also preferred where fly ash, that is mixed with water, has to be pumped over greater distances. In contrast to centrifugal pumps, an ABEL pump can transfer a higher solids content and is more efficient using considerably less electrical power. In order to prevent the sedimentation of particularly heavy particles in the pump and valve housings, the pumps can be equipped with reversing valves, which cause the pump flow to move in accordance with the particles sedimentation velocity.
ABEL solids handling pumps in the SH series are especially suitable for transferring dehydrated sludge.
ABEL in nuclear Power Plants: Our various diaphragm pumps have also proven their worth for conveying non-nuclear contaminated sludge and lime slurry.
