Wanner to provide 75 pumps for pharmaceutical giant

Wanner International has secured an order for 75 Hydra-Cell chemical process pumps from one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical manufacturers.

After intensive testing, the company chose the Hydra-Cell Flow Chemistry and High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) pumps because of the advanced mechanical and hydraulic design, with little ancillary equipment required, the high accuracy over the wide flow range and the technical support.

The Hydra-Cell pumps deliver an extremely low pulse flow, without the need for pulsation dampeners, and with a predictable and controllable flow rate for a consistent process.

The pumps will be installed in a new production line for transfer, blending and injection of saline solutions, alcohols and other salts, within an ATEX Zone 2 environment; delivering flow rates from 1–14,000 l/hr at a discharge pressure of 30 Bar (435 PSI).

Paul Davis, Wanner International’s managing director, said: “When you are manufacturing lifesaving and life enhancing drugs, you can’t let anything get in the way. These pumps are a perfect fit for this application. They will maximise the production line’s efficiency and productivity, safely and reliably - and reduce costs.”
