A&M-Nikuni KTM microbubble generating pump trial unit

The A&M-Nikuni KTM microbubble pump trial unit is available with either SS304 or SS316 wetted parts for proving concepts, research projects and small scale systems. Bespoke units are available and a 230VAC 1 phase 50Hz motor is fitted as standard.

A&M©-Nikuni KTM pump trial unit package

In order to provide industrial clients, researchers and special projects a means of proving the Nikuni KTM pump for their purpose, the Nikuni KTM pump trial unit is very extensively modified and upgraded by A&M in the UK.

The A&M-Nikuni trial unit can be supplied with all wetted parts in SS304 or SS316 stainless steel. Customisation is possible and special bespoke units are frequently ordered for specific research projects.  

The application of a A&M-Nikuni KTM pump trial unit to a pre-project assessment, providing a vital check on the validty or otherwise of new processes, plant or site installations, can very significantly de-risk a major project and save considerable expenditure.

Each trial unit is offered as a complete plug-and-play ready-to-run system. Gasses used through the trial unit include:

  • Ambient air
  • Ambient air at >100°C
  • Oxygen
  • Ozone
  • Hydrogen
  • Nitrogen
  • Chlorine
  • Carbon Dioxide
  • Flue gas
  • Methane
