Metal finishing and plating processes use significant amounts of water for cleaning, rinsing, and plating steps that must be collected and often dewatered for disposal by industrial submersible pumps. Industrial pumps used in metal finishing plants must be able to handle strong acids, heavy metal or oil-containing waste. Pitbull Pumps are ideal for these applications since their simple design foregoes seals, motors and diaphragms that often fail from exposure to caustic liquids.
