Ion Exchange Resin Manufacturing

This application note provides an overview of the successful use of low capacity gear pumps for a global ion-exchange resin manufacturer’s R&D laboratory.


Purolite is a world leader in resin-based separation, purification and extraction technology.


Purolite’s R&D laboratories and pilot plants are used to develop and test the company’s latest products and developments. Pumps are required to circulate, dose and transfer a variety of chemicals at low/medium capacities. ATEX compliance is a necessity, and leak-free pumping is desirable for safety and cleanliness. To be suitable, the pump must also be compact to save on space, precise for repeatability, and durable to handle occasional bumps.


Micropump seal-less magnetically coupled GA and GC series external gear pumps, equipped with appropriate ATEX-certified motors and controls, are able to meet the precision and accuracy requirements needed for reliable and robust performance.
