The pulp, paper and wood products industries requires pumps capable of solids and trash handling while also being corrosion and abrasion resistant. Sump pumps within hydropulper locations need to handle trash that may include rope, wire, plastic, and metal debris. Sumps from the wet fiber screening, pressing, and wood digestion processes need to be not only corrosion and abrasion resistant, but also able to handle paper fiber or wood chips.
Pitbull Pumps offers pneumatic trash pumps for pulp, paper, and wood product applications. They’re reliable when other pumps fail because their unique pneumatic displacement design can handle trash, slurries, and sludge without clogging. The pumps’ simple design works best for a variety of applications dealing with solids such as pulp, paper, and wood. The design includes a hollow chamber with two check valves and full pipe diameter passages. There are no impellers, diaphragms, seals, or motors.
