Metal finishing and plating processes use significant amounts of water for cleaning, rinsing, and the treatment and neutralization of plating chemicals. The waste stream must be collected and often dewatered for disposal by a combination of industrial submersible pumps and filter-press feed pumps. Industrial pumps used in metal finishing plants must be able to handle strong acids, bases, heavy metal or oil-containing waste. Pitbull Pumps’ industrial submersible pumps are ideal for metal finishing and plating applications. Their simple design foregoes impellers, shafts and seals, motors and diaphragms that often fail from exposure to such a corrosive environment. The pumps are powered by air, meaning there’s no need for an electric motor. The hollow design of the pump chamber allows it to handle solids, oil waste, and many other byproducts of metal finishing and plating. At Pitbull Pump, we use highest quality, corrosion resistant materials that can withstand many of the high and low pH solutions of metal finishing and plating applications. This ensures that your industrial submersible pump will last for years to come.
Pitbull pumps have staying power – even in the toughest metal finishing environments. Read our case study on Castle Metal Finishing Corp. and the two Pitbull submersible pumps it’s been running for more than 30 years.
