What do gypsum, sodium hydroxide, and hydrochloric acid have in common? These minerals are valuable commodities in major markets – industries such as oil & gas, paper, and agriculture. And each of them can be extracted at desalination plants with the right equipment.
To turn a profit, desalination plants need reliable, efficient operations. When a company in the south-central region purchased a plant to refurbish for their use, they knew the existing equipment wouldn’t do.
The company looked to pump manufacturers to provide new solutions that would enhance their processes and improve productivity and profits. When they looked at their options, the winner was clear. Finish Thompson won the business and provided 25 ULTRAChem® pumps for their desalination plant.
Finish Thompson pumps won their business with three distinct advantages.

Wong wasn’t surprised by the plant’s choice. He adds, “Our pumps are ideal for the extraction of high-purity mineral products. The pumps increase water production and provide a cost-effective waste concentrate disposal solution.”
