The Liquivac pump.
The Liquivac pump.
The pump, which can handle combinations of liquids, gases and fine solids, will be distributed in Sweden, Norway and Denmark by Lyma Kemiteknik AB.
 
Sweden-based Lyma Kemiteknik AB, which is part of the Indutrade group, is a specialist in corrosive and abrasive flow technology.
 
Liquivac was developed by Tomlinson Hall and is manufactured at the company’s Billingham site in the UK. The pumps are used by utilities, chemical processors, food and drink producers, environmental engineers, desalination plants and sea life centres, and have been employed by companies including BASF, ConocoPhilips, Bayer, Tata Steel and Veolia.
 
Liquivac’s liquid 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 extremely robust in operation, and it is able to transfer volatile liquids or collect waste.
 
Colin Simpson, business development director of Tomlinson Hall, said: “We are delighted that Lyma Kemiteknik AB has chosen to distribute Liquivac in Sweden, Norway and Denmark and that the Liquivac brand is associated with such a prominent and well-established company. Liquivac is a flexible, versatile pump that serves a very broad range of companies throughout the world – our partnership with Lyma Kemiteknik AB now means that its presence in Scandinavia can be greatly increased, and we look forward to seeing the pump help businesses across the region.”
 
Magnus Gustavson, managing director of Lyma Kemiteknik AB, added: “Liquivac enables us to extend our own range with a unique product. We can see great potential for the use of Liquivac pumps in chemical plants, pulp and paper mills, petrochemical facilities and in the energy sector.”
