Thank you to all those who visited us on our stand at ChemUK.

The exhibition was a great success with many interesting conversations and it was great to catch up with old friends again.

On the stand, we had two working models; a Discflo Pump from Discflo Corporation for ‘Hard to Pump’ applications that other pumps cannot handle and a LEWA Diaphragm Metering Pump from LEWA GmbH to demonstrate its unique diaphragm positioning system to protect the pump from process upset conditions. We also displayed MKP and MKPL Centrifugal Magnetic Drive Pumps from CP Pumpen AG, a cutaway Canned Motor Pump from Nikkiso CMP and a Flexcore Screw Pump from Leistritz Pump Technology, plus more products for the Chemical sector.
