SANDPIPER - Heavy Duty Flap Valve Pumps for the Auto Parts Industry
After manually emptying their sludge bag for years, Jays Plastics determined it was time for a more efficient solution. SANDPIPER's HD20F pump was able to provide a reliable solution for the highly viscous sludge.
June 30, 2022
Jay Plastics, an auto parts manufacturer in Mansfield, Ohio, is utilizing a SANDPIPER Heavy Duty 2" NonMetallic Flap (HD20F) pump in its’ paint overspray capturing application.
As parts are spray painted, a stream of water flowing behind the parts captures the stray paint particles and the stream of water is then directed to a gravity-fed filter. A stream of paint particle sludge then exits the filter.
Prior to using the HD20F, Jay Plastics employed a disposal system that utilized a bag to capture the sludge. The bag needed to be manually replaced multiple times per day and was bulky and difficult to transport to a dumpster.
• Ease of maintenance
• Priced competitively
• Ability to handle suspended solids
• Clean out caps allowed for easy clean out of the flaps
After replacing the bagged solution with the SANDPIPER pump, the sludge exiting the filter is pumped directly to the dumpster using the HD20F.
