Franklin Electric South Africa, a leading manufacturer of world class pumping system solutions, will be demonstrating at Electra Mining how the new Mono EZstrip™ transfer pump can make a day-long maintenance operation a 30-minute job. Considered as the biggest leap forward in progressing cavity pump technology for 30 years, the Mono EZstrip™ transfer pump is the first industrial progressing cavity pump unit that can be stripped without the need for electrical disconnection or removal of pipework. The revolutionary new Mono EZstrip™ transfer pump is easy to install and presents the opportunity to see downtime drastically reduced as maintenance, cleaning and repairs to the pump can be carried out in-situ. 

Franklin Electric will be demonstrating how to access the pump internals to either maintain the pump or clear out any buildup in less than a minute, with reassembly of the suction chamber taking the same period of time. Franklin Electric will also show how the entire drive train of the Mono EZstrip™ transfer pump, including rotor, stator, shaft, rod and seal, can be removed in less than four minutes, and reassembled as quickly. Currently the removal of rotating parts from a conventional progressing cavity pump can take up to a full day.

The Mono EZstrip™ transfer pump is suitable for applications such as dewatering, coal washing, gland service, sludges, slurries, flocculants and industrial chemicals. Following its launch in South Africa in 2015, the pump has been well received by local industry and is being utilised to pump flocculants, water and personal care products.

Franklin Electric will also be showcasing the company’s entire range of positive displacement pumps, other industrial models of varying sizes, as well as positive displacement borehole pumps for dewatering applications, and will be demonstrating how a positive displacement pump can pump highly viscous products.

Franklin Electric will be exhibiting on stand P16b at Electra Mining 2016, to be held from 12 to 16 September at the Expo Centre Nasrec.
