The Challenge

A manufacturer of specialty automotive fluids and lubricants located in the southeastern U.S. was in the process of transferring an existing production line to another facility. The new facility, however, did not have the capacity on its existing hot oil system to feed the additional line. Adding capacity and running new piping would have been a major expense. The transferred line was to be run as a stand-alone system, and required a seal-less pump to maintain the high temperatures and pressure.
