Title: Flygt Pumping a highly corrosive cocktail of abrasive iron and sinter particles

The manufacture of steel requires huge quantities of water. At Oxelösund, over 4,800 m3 are circulated around the plant every hour. Kent Eriksson, supervisor, is responsible for approximately 150 pumps that feed the plant. Except for the summer break, production is continuous, around the clock, throughout the year. So it is vital that the pumps are reliable. For example, the main station pumps have been out of operation for only two minutes in more than 30 years.
