Three rotary lobe pumps manufactured by Börger are currently playing a significant role in detoxifying oil which has escaped into the water at a decontamination plant used disaster relief agencies and fire services.
The process involves all three pumps in individual stages. First, a self-priming portable Börger Feed pump drives in the contaminated medium and transports it to the plant. This pump is included in a Euro mesh frame and, with the advantage of a built-in frequency, the converter can feed at controlled speeds.
Following the automatic parting of water and the oil, a second Börger Rotary Lobe pump transports the separated, extremely viscous oil into a tanker channel. A third larger Börger pump sends any water containing oil back to the contaminated water for complete detoxification.
With the trinity of Börger pumps, the decontamination mill can detoxify up to 160,000 liters of oil/water mix in 1 hour.
