Zenith Applications for Fiber
Industry: Fiber - Spinning
The Industry Challenge
To succeed in today’s competitive environment, fiber producers must solve critical issues such as inadequate pump life, reduced production uptime, inconsistent denier uniformity and excessive maintenance costs.
From pre-polymer metering to fiber spinning and finishing, Zenith is your partner for the long run
The Zenith Solution
The innovative rotary gear design of the Zenith planetary pump design ensures precise, pulse free, and repeatable flows. Its through-hardened construction offers high wear resistance, low maintenance, and long pump life
We offer precision fluid handling solutions to meet the following fiber applications: monomer or prepolymer metering, reactor extraction, polymer booster, additive injection, fiber spinning, and spin finish.
Production Consistency: The single gear level planetary pump series offers greater stream to stream process temperature uniformity resulting in improved yarn consistency and process ability when compared with multi gear level style pumps.
Reduced Shear: The Zenith Planetary series imparts minimal mechanical shearing action of the pump on the polymer flow. This benefit reduces the undesirable effects of both shear on the spun polymer and the thermal gradients in the polymer flow downstream of the pump.
High Metering Accuracy: High metering accuracy expected of a spin pump.
