Chlorine has an important vapor pressure that can lead to a vaporization inside the pump.
By his experience in pumping chlorine, Optimex is today able to adapt the design of its machines in order to guarantee the good operation of the centrifugal pumps by avoiding the phenomena of butter chlorine. Severals solutions are possible depending on the suction pressure. As an example, we have centrifugal canned motor pumps running on the site of Syngenta In Switzerland.
