Project Name:

Europoort In Netherlands

End Customer:

Europoort In Netherlands

Scope of supply:

The Europoort is the third largest port in the world in terms of the quantity of goods exchanged, It covers an area of approximately 3,600 hectares which extends into the Netherlands, on the shores of the North Sea, and includes the complex formed by port area of Rotterdam and the adjacent industrial area.

One Tank farm in Europoort inquired M Pumps for two nitric acid units, with self-priming and gas handling ability.

M Pumps solution:

M Pumps has chosen and manufactured the SCE MAG-M65/1S for this request: This pump is a modern trouble free, hermetic, low speed-high efficiency side channel pump range, engineered and manufactured in M Pumps for the application which requires zero leakage-safe operation.

These comparative advantages are the prime reasons for clients to consider mag. drive pumps against mechanical seal fitted pumps.

M Pumps deliver world‐leading expertise in the design, application and manufacture of Magnetically Driven Pumps and associated equipment to API 685, ISO 2858, ANSI B73.3 and ASME for the Oil and Gas, Offshore, Petrochemical, Chemicals, Nuclear, Research Institutes, Pharmaceutical, Electronic and the General industry.
