Applications

Chemical Loading/Unloading

The most common and prevalent use of Antico pumps is for loading and unloading of acids and alkalies. Acids are transported from one plant to another using trucks. Antico pumps are found to be truck mounted or placed at a convenient location in a tank farm.

Chemical Transfer

Chemical transfer from one tank or location to another is another common application where Antico pumps are used. Generally the pump is installed at the base of the tank and the discharge is given to another tank.

Steel pickling

Pickling is a metal surface treatment used to remove impurities, such as stains, inorganic contaminants, rust or scale from ferrous metals, copper, precious metals and aluminum alloys. A solution called pickle liquor, which contains strong acids, is used to remove the surface impurities. It is commonly used to descale or clean steel in various steelmaking processes. Antico pumps are used to impinge strong acids with high pressure on the hot rolled steel.

Filter Press Feeding

Filter press feeding is done using Antico pumps. This application is found in dyes and pigments industry.

Effluent Treatment Plants

Effluent treatments plants are used in almost all moderns factories to reduce or eliminate discharge of contaminated liquids into the environment. Antico pumps are used widely to bring down the ph value of common effluent liquids.

Surface Treatment / Electroplating

Surface treatment / electroplating requires that strong corrosive acids are used on substrates to give it a protective coating. Antico pumps are the best solution for this application.
