Pumping starch glue

Process

The customer mixes the liquid glue from the powder glue with water. The mixed fluid is then pumped into the piping system using a diaphragm pump. For each machine, this adhesive is dispensed into the reservoir by opening a remote controlled valve.

Problem

The pump must not be damaged when the valves are closed on all machines and must be able to supply the required amount of adhesive when the valves are opened on all machines.

Solution

Verderair pumps. The customer was very satisfied and installed a VA 25 pump.

Why an AODD?

  • Self priming pump
  • Gentle pumping action
  • No need for an external pump control
  • Ability to run against a closed valve
