Moyno Urethane Stators Outlast Nitrile in Real World Application
Moyno is a global leader in the design and manufacture of Progressive Cavity pumps. It offers a wide variety of PC pumps, including sanitary and EZStrip pumps, to be used in applications around the world in every industry.
Recently, the pump manufacturer puts its new Urethane stators to the test in an abrasive municipal sludge application for the City of Hamilton, Ontario Waste Water Treatment Plants (WWTP). Wastewater treatment presents harsh operating conditions for the pumps and related equipment handling the various processes. The nitrile stators in particular had to be frequently replaced due to the abrasive qualities of the processed water sludge. The frequent maintenance and cost of replacement parts was becoming an expensive burden.
Moyno recently unveiled its new Urethane stators, designed specifically for tough applications and built to last. The City of Hamilton put the stators to the test and was so impressed by the results that they have since ordered an additional five replacement stators for their pumps. The Urethane stator outlasted the nitrile counterpart five times over and still continued to run without failure. As the City of Hamilton continues to expand, the Moyno Urethane stator will lower maintenance costs and significantly reduce down time for the City Of Hamilton’s waste water treatment.
The collection system processes both sanitary- and waste-water for Hamilton, Dundas, Ancaster, Water Down, Glanbrook Township, and the former City of Stoney Creek. The Woodward Avenue WWTP began operations in 1964 and today handles approximately 409 million liters of water per day, with a capacity of over 600 million liters per day.
