Pumps used in polymer processing applications help ensure the consistent quality of products by maintaining precise control of flow rate and pressure. Reliable polymer pumps are crucial in minimizing downtime in the production process. However, polymer buildup in a pump can cause various malfunctions and costly performance issues due to its adverse effects on the pump’s internal components. Malfunctions such as reduced flow, decreased pump efficiency, loss of prime, irregular pressure swings, and seal and gasket damage can all be attributed to polymer buildup over time.
To prevent these issues, regular cleaning and maintenance are essential. Carolina Filters has a variety of methods to clean polymer pumps to ensure their efficiency and longevity.
