The quality of the applied media is particularly crucial in component refinement. Even though filtering systems are used when preparing various sorts of media, it is hardly possible to completely eliminate the accumulation of dirt particles. Particles are especially likely to accumulate in the media when circular flow operations are used. These fine particles act like a grinding paste and lead to serious wear and tear on high-pressure components such as valves. In order to ensure a long service life, high-pressure components have to be appropriately set up.
Measures such as reducing the pump speed or the selection of particularly resistant materials make a significant contribution to increasing service life. Despite increased investment costs for larger pumps and valves, along with costly materials, costs will be reduced in the long term. This will lead to fewer service intervals and a reduction in maintenance costs.
All pumps, pump systems and jet spray equipment used for refining have been specifically selected by URACA for various customer applications and they have been tailored to the respective requirements.
