Finish Thompson Pumps: Perfect for Mineral Recovery

Discover how Finish Thompson pumps transformed plant operations

How do you breathe new life into an old plant? When one desalination company purchased a property that needed revamping for its operations, it needed the best pumps to meet market demands. The company needed superior performance, fast delivery, and innovative function.

Who was selected? Finish Thompson’s sealless technology beat out the alternatives.

Finish Thompson pumps helped plant owners quickly and effectively recover minerals and separate them into high-quality products. The extraction of multiple commodities holds significant value for multiple commercial markets.

Discover the three features that pushed Finish Thompson pumps to the front of the line in the company’s search for pumping solutions.

Finish Thompson Pumps Prove Perfect for Mineral Recovery

What do gypsum, sodium hydroxide, and hydrochloric acid have in common? These minerals are valuable commodities in major markets – industries such as oil & gas, paper, and agriculture. And each of them can be extracted at desalination plants with the right equipment. To turn a profit, desalination plants need reliable, efficient operations. When a company in the south-central region purchased a plant to refurbish for their use, they knew the existing equipment wouldn’t do. The company looked to pump manufacturers to provide new solutions that would enhance their processes and improve productivity and profits. When they looked at their options, the winner was clear. Finish Thompson won the business and provided 25 ULTRAChem® pumps for their desalination plant. Finish Thompson pumps won their business with three distinct advantages.
