Chemical Processing

When your process requires the use of acids, caustics, solvents and other hazardous chemicals, we know that safety comes first.

Chemical-based compounds can be vital to industrial and manufacturing production. But they also can be harmful to your staff, the environment and your productivity if not handled properly.

Whether you’re filling a tank, drum or bucket – or dosing chemicals in precise amounts – ARO offers a variety of pumping systems to ensure the safety and integrity of your specific application.

Our pumps are expertly designed to meet the challenges of chemical processing, including:

  • 6” stroke to deliver greater displacement with less wear than 4” stroke pumps
  • Moving a wide range of viscosities, from thin fluids to thick, slower-moving substances
  • Bulk fluid transfer, including tanker or railcar unloading
  • Chemical injection pump and chemical dosing pump needs
  • Batching and mixing
  • Filter press – the separation of solids and liquids using large-scale pressure filtration
