Not again?! Their pump needed another replacement part. They’d only been using it for a short time, but inner part failures were becoming a common occurrence. The high maintenance was putting a strain on their budget, and the breakdowns were putting a strain on operations. Plus, the 4 kW motor was not proving as efficient as advertised.
They needed a new solution.
They needed an efficient pump that would deliver reliability – one that could safely handle the harsh chemical transfers involved in their wastewater treatment systems that service textile-dying plants. After all, not all pumps are suitable for transferring sodium hydroxide. The pump they required needed to be energy efficient and ruggedly built.
The Perfect Solution: Finish Thompson DB Pumps
When the local pump distributor heard of this plant’s struggle, the rep recommended Finish Thompson DB Series pumps. The DB15B model features a 2.2 kW motor, strong neodymium magnets, rugged construction, and high efficiency.
It was exactly what the plant needed.
“They’ve been extremely satisfied with the Finish Thompson pump,” reports Sieng Huynh, Finish Thompson Regional Sales Manager, Asia Pacific. “It has proven to be very durable and reliable, and they have not experienced the issues they did with the competitor’s pump. The Finish Thompson DB pump has been in use for six months, and the customer happily reports no issues.”
“They’ve also enjoyed energy cost savings,” adds Huynh. “The Finish Thompson pump is able to run with a 2.2 kW motor, whereas the competitor’s pump required a motor almost twice as large. The pump is running effectively and efficiently.”
Due to the cost savings and improved performance, the customer has decided to replace all of their competitor pumps with Finish Thompson centrifugal pumps. They plan to purchase 25 additional pumps in Q2 to install in their wastewater treatment operations.
