GSPV_2100x1610A major Malaysian refinery is currently upgrading equipment throughout their facility. As refining and petrochemical processing operators around the world face increasing pressure to comply with stringent health and safety regulations, they are replacing their aging single seal pumps with efficient and highly reliable sealless magnetic drive pumps. These pumps eliminate dangerous leaks and put an end to costly seal maintenance.

The customer required a cost effective and highly reliable pump to replace existing API 610 vertical pumps with single seal systems that are prone to leakage and emissions.
