Hose Pump at the heart of Argentinian Water Treatment Plant
Aug 07, 2013
The AySA San Martin plant situated in the heart of the city of Buenos Aires serves around 8 million people and treats around 3,000,000m³ of water a day). ALL PUMPS were able to be included in the initial stages of this project and were able to introduce peristaltic technology.
The concept was accepted and ALL PUMPS won the job. Today the pumping station has 7 x Verderflex Dura 35 hose pumps running. So when the new AySA Bernal plant in the south of Buenos Aires needed pumps, the company liased with Verderflex distributor, All Pumps Argentina S.A. and decided to purchase additional Verderflex Dura 35 pumps. The AySA Bernal PLANT serves about 3.4million people and treats around 900,000m³ of water per day.
The Verderflex Dura 35 peristaltic hose pumps were chosen because of the compact nature, especially compared with alternatives such as screw pumps. The Dura 35 has the added benefit that the corrosive PAC fluid being pumped does not come into contact with any moving parts and is totally contained within the heavy-duty hose.
The Dura 35 also offers very easy maintenance with the only significant wear part being the hose.
The plant manager is very happy indeed with the performance and low maintenance of the pumps. He stated that ,“Gone are the days where we have to go down to the hardware store and buy a coupling or a bearing to repair the pump, there is only the hose and that’s it, we can change the hose in situ”.
