Colfax Delivers 168 Pumps To Chinese Plant
Allweiler, a business of Colfax Corp., announced the delivery of 168 centrifugal pumps, valued at US$2.3 million (€1.7 million), to a polyester plant undergoing an expansion in Wujiang, China.
The pumps will be used for moving liquid polyester, glycol and thermal oil. Liquids involved in polyester production can reach temperatures as high as 350°C. The Allweiler pumps are made from heat-resistant stainless steel, and include a supplemental heating element because liquid polyester begins to solidify below 250°C, Allweiler said.
