“Vanadis power chose a pump that was able to provide a high operating efficiency whilst operating 24/7 with a hazardous yet highly valuable media.”
Engineers at Vanadis were looking for a reliable pump supplier to provide corrosion resistant pumps to be installed into the energy storage process. The pump is vital for the circulation of the electrolytes which create the kinetic energy.
Vanadis Power required 16 pumps that were able to pump from both the positive and negative electrolyte terminals into the membrane where the power is generated and stored into the back tank. A delicate process which requires a reliable and efficient pump for 24/7 recirculation.
Crest Pumps Group recommended and supplied the magnetic drive AMX555-GG pumps not only because they were the best fit for the duty required, but also for high efficiency and low running costs. The AMX-GG pumps were supplied in polypropylene components, including the baseplate and adaptor to enhance the corrosion resistant nature of the pump.
As a result of choosing Crest Pumps Group, Vanadis Power have ensured that their highly valuable media is in a safe and efficient process, with no risk of leakage or corrosion. Energy consumption is kept to the absolute minimum and the pumps have been running for over 5 years without issue.
