DL Thurrott Solves Problems with Custom Systems

A castings manufacturer wanted to transfer acid from a bulk tank to 5 separate dip tanks.

We supplied systems that added water and chemicals to those dip tanks which they used to clean their manufactured parts.  We discussed how they wanted the process to happen, and ended up providing a package that:

A.)        Allows them to select the tank (1 to 5)

B.)        Allows them to start and stop the pump based on a visual level in the tank.

C.)        Has a built in safety precaution which allows the pump to run only while the operator holds the pump button in the “on” position.  If the operator has to leave the area, the entire system shuts off.

This customer also uses a flushing process that requires city water. The system will not allow the acid and the city water to flow at the same time.  The operator must hold the water pump button in the “on" position for it to run, thus preventing the acid from back flowing into the water lines.

Vogelsang Pulsation Free Positive Displacement Pumps
Vogelsang Pulsation Free Positive Displacement Pump

Positive displacement pumps have long been associated with pulsating flow. Pulsation and shear can be a drawback in many applications.  The unique design of the Vogelsang HiFlo Rotary Lobe Pump addresses these issues.  Features and capabilities like self-priming, dry running, small foot print, pulsation free operation, low shear and inline serviceability all make the Vogelsang a versatile pump.  With the various sizes available, flows from 5gpm to 6,000gpm can be achieved.   An added benefit to Vogelsang’s rotary lobe design is lower energy consumption, In many cases, less than half that of the equivalent sized progressive cavity pump.

Vogelsang rotary lobe pumps are a fit in nearly any industry, pumping everything from products with water like viscosity to molasses.  Vogelsang pumps are currently operating at breweries and wineries, pulp & paper mills, industrial waste water plants, chemical plants, ceramics plants and many others. 

In addition to rotary lobe pumps, Vogelsang manufactures the RotaCut inline macerator, with benefits like comparative low cost, dependable operation, easy installation and easy inline maintenance which make the RotaCut a popular alternative to the traditional twin shaft macerators.  The RotaCut is widely used in food and beverage, pulp and paper, as well as, municipal and industrial waste processing.

DL Thurrott is the exclusive industrial distributor for Vogelsang products in New England and upstate New York.   

If energy efficient, low shear, no pulsation pumping would benefit to your process, please contact us to discuss the Vogelsang Rotary Lobe Pump.

Tuthill Gear Pumps For OEM and High Viscosity Applications
Tuthill Gear Pump

Tuthill has been producing pumps in the Chicago area since 1927. Their gear pumps range from small magnetically driven units to large industrial pumps suitable for aggressive high viscosity slurries.

OEM applications such as electronics cooling and medical devices are ideally suited for Tuthill's magnetically driven pumps. Available in a variety of metals and engineered plastics, these seal-less pumps provide the flow you need independent of pressure requirements. The pumps are extremely compact and cost-effective, virtually pulsation free, and can be powered by AC or DC motors. Flows range from 3 to 650 gph and pressures to 250 psi.
Tuthill's broad selection of industrial gear pumps are especially suited for difficult applications for high viscosity (up to 20,000,000 ssu). The HD line of pumps will handle fluids up to 525° F, with high viscosity and solids along with the capability of intermittent dry running, all in a compact package.

The Global Gear models handle flows up to 550 gpm and pressures to 200 psi. These pumps are designed for OEM use providing high performance at a cost effective price. As with all Tuthill gear pumps, they will supply a constant flow regardless of pressure. They work great in lube oil systems.

To learn more about Tuthill pumps, vacuum pumps and other great pumps, and blowers that D.L. Thurrott offers, call us at 800-795-7024 or visit our website

EnviroGear Design Enhancements Overcome Long-time Challenges
EnviroGear Sealless Gear Pumps

EnviroGear seal-less gear pumps have been designed to eliminate all of the operation concerns found in old-style seal-less gear pumps, including excessive bearing wear and a fluid chamber design that complicates operation and limits product range. In addition, EnviroGear's simple design, which consists of only seven primary parts, greatly reduces maintenance and environmental costs. The result is a new genus of seal-less gear pumps, one that does away with the operational shortcomings that helped stigmatize past seal-less pump designs while remaining cost-effective for the end-user.
