Wanner’s Hydra-Cell seal-less pumps deal effectively with the challenges of abrasive particulate matter.
In the wake of the recent automotive emissions scandals, air pollution control has again taken centre stage. The challenge of minimizing the environmental impact of industrial processes has never been greater as mandatory emissions threshold limits are driven ever lower.
 
The nature of the seal-less design of the Hydra-Cell pumps means they can easily handle abrasive particles which are the result of particulate matter and toxins emanating from thermal processes. The majority of particulates can be removed effectively by gas scrubbing in its variety of forms and modern scrubbing liquids are commonly tailored to the pollutants being removed.
 
As the scrubbing liquid is invariably recirculated, the extracted particulates can prove problematic for pumps with dynamic seals, causing premature wear and possible catastrophic failure. However, seal-less pumps such as the Hydra-Cell can deal far more effectively with this.
