Ingersoll Rand introduced a new pumping system, the ARO Station, at ACHEMA 2015. The ARO Station is a customised solution, housing an ARO pump and piping in a durable housing in order to reduce leaks and fumes during chemical transfer from one container to another. Standing independently from a truck, the ARO Station helps operators comply with changing environmental regulations, while enhancing operator safety.
The ARO Station can accommodate two different size pumps, the 1.5 in. or 2 in. Expert Series Pumps (EXP) ARO diaphragm pump. With the capability to pump material from five to 30 m3/h, the ARO Station can be calibrated to pump the appropriate quantity for each application. Use of the ARO Station increases the safety of chemical installations during the unloading process by reducing risks of water hammer that occur during the pressurisation of the tanks.
Made of high density polyethylene, the ARO Station is impervious to corrosion, and features a drip collection tray that can hold up to 200 liters of fluid. The ARO Station can be used as a free standing pump solution or it can be equipped with wheels for mobility. Compact and ready for use, the ARO Station is a standardised skid size thus reducing integration costs.
ARO offers three add ons to increase environmental and operator safety:
- A leak detector that communicates possible leakage, helping to minimise air pollution and risk from fumes.
- A heater to prevent freezing in extreme situations.
- An alarm that monitors the level of liquid in the tank and whether the system is running dry.
