Pump seal water
The BacTerminator® system can improve the bacteria elimination of the pump seal water compared to the commonly used pasteurization.
Pumps, homogenizers and centrifuges are built with fluid shaft sealing (pump seal water). This water prolongs the lifetime of the rotating carbon rings (carbon/silicium) by ”greasing” and cooling the rings.
The pump seal water can be reused in a closed pipe system, and then it needs to be treated to avoid bacteria and fungi. This ensures reuse of the pump seal water for longer periods, and that finished products will not be contaminated on case of a leakage of seal water into the unit.
