NOV® MONO’S® REVOLUTIONARY EZSTRIP REDUCES DOWNTIME FOR BASF
The world’s leading chemical manufacturer, BASF, has installed four revolutionary EZstrip maintain-in-place progressing cavity (PC) pumps from NOV® Mono®, Europe’s leading designer and manufacturer of pumps, parts, Munchers®, screens and packaged systems.
In a bid to improve process efficiency and reduce downtime at its site in Bradford, UK, BASF turned to NOV Mono for a solution. “Our existing pumps, which transfer a range of varying viscosity products, were often difficult and time-consuming to maintain,” says a BASF spokesman. “When NOV Mono told us about the maintain-in-place benefits of its innovative EZstrip PC pump, we just knew it was the solution we had been looking for.
“Thanks to Mono’s EZstrip, we are able to fully strip down and maintain the PC pump, in situ and within just 30 minutes. This was a massive reduction in time and it has, in turn, resulted in significant cost savings. So far, everything is running perfectly and we couldn’t be happier with this new solution.”
