London, UK (PRWEB) April 14, 2008
As a result of having to vacate its East London distribution depot to Middlesbrough in order to accommodate the 2012 London Olympics, Banner Chemicals has purchased Blackmer sliding vane pumps for blending and filling operations at its new solvent tank farm.
The new multi-million pound facility is located on the 5.5 acre site of MP Storage & Blending (another Blackmer pump user), which Banner Chemicals purchased in 2006. The Company is a leading chemical distributor supplying an extensive range of solvents and specialty chemicals to chosen market sectors.
"Banner Chemicals has had a long history of use with Blackmer positive displacement pumps at its London depot and we found them to suit our needs," comments Tom Ellmer Group Operations Manager Banner Chemicals. "We have a good relationship with Axflow for pumps and spares and we had pumps in excess of 10 years old at our previous depot. Experience with these pumps is that they require minimum maintenance."
The new cast iron X2.5B, X2B and XL 1.5 ductile iron pumps have been selected for loading/unloading tankers, drum filling/blending operations and pump blending duties. Products being handled include Alcohols, Ketones, Hydrocarbons, Acetates and Glycol (Solvents / Chemicals).
