Aquarium turns to Tomlinson Hall

30 July 2009

The SeaQuarium in Rhyl, UK has turned to Tomlinson Hall for a liquid ring vacuum pump to handle seawater extraction. The aquarium attraction specified the Liquivac pump citing its strong environmental credentials.

Manufactured at Tomlinson’s Teesside base, the liquid ring vacuum pump contains a twin start helical rotor mounted eccentrically in a cylindrical pump casing and is designed to pump liquids or combinations of liquid, air and fine solids through long suction lines, generating suction lifts to up to 8.5m.

Paul Tyson from the SeaQuarium, said: "Liquivac has the ability to maintain water extraction, even at low tide with high flow rates and can handle long suction lines- up to 500m from the sea, which enabled placement in a secure and convenient location. Beyond these factors Liquivac has fantastic environmental credentials, which are obviously very important to us, and provides a very cost effective solution."

Colin Simpson, sales director at Tomlinson, said: "We are delighted to work with the SeaQuarium. It was apparent that Liquivac was a great fit for many reasons, such as our extraction system, which uses the natural filtering properties of sand, eliminating blockage and preventing oil pollution."
