Water with Potato Starch

Pump:
SPX EcoPure™ Magnetically Driven Centrifugal Pump

Industry:
Food – Potato Starch

Problem:
A large European producer of potatoes used traditional centrifugal pumps to pump a starch solution. The starch would dry and harden on the single mechanical seals causing wear and frequent replacement. This forced them to use a double mechanical flushed seal, but the customer wanted to eliminate the flush from the process.

Solution:
The SPX EcoPure pump was placed in the process. The EcoPure pump’s magnetic coupling eliminated the rotating seals in the process. Since the EcoPure pump does not contain any rotating mechanical seals, the pump eliminated the potential for leakage at the rotating seal points.

The customer benefited from the unique impeller and casing design to improve the operational efficiency, reduced the noise and vibration in the system, eliminated the costly replacement of seal parts and they no longer required a double mechanical seal with flush.

The pump has 3A approval and is designed in accordance with EHEDG standards.
