CASE STUDY

IMPLEMENTATION OF A VARISCO SELF-PRIMING CENTRIFUGAL PUMP TO CHEESE FACILITY

Case study conducted with Varisco JE 6-250 F11 FT40 centrifugal pump, carried out by our specialists in a cheese facility located in the heart of rural Ireland.

About the pump

The J series self-priming centrifugal pumps are for applications where the main feature is the difficulty in priming: even with suction heights of several meters the machine quickly evacuates the air from the suction pipe and starts pumping. Furthermore, compared to other pumps, the semi-open impeller makes the J suitable for pumping liquids with solids in suspension.

Applications

The Varisco J Series have features that not only meet the needs of the market but make it an extremely versatile product suitable for professionals of Constructions, Industry and Emergency duty.

Benefits

  • Rapid self-priming

Without foot valve up to a height of 7.5 m (24.5 ft).

  • High resistance

To abrasive liquids and turbid sandy waters.

  • Semi-open impeller

Solids handling up to 76 mm (3″).

  • Wear plates

In cast iron lined with abrasion resistant rubber, easily replaceable, front, and rear to the impeller.

  • Easy maintenance

Removable front cover for direct access to the impeller

Challenging project

Co-owner and Director Stephen McDowell stated that working whit this case was enriching.

“One of my more challenging projects to work on with one of our most valued customers. Not straight forward and we did have problems, but the contractor was fantastic, and their engineers were excellent. Having above ground self priming pumps is the safest and most cost effective way to transfer waste liquid”, he said.
