Watson-Marlow pumps perform at Cornish Lithium Shallow Geothermal Test Site

Five 500 series cased peristaltic pumps from Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Solutions are playing an essential role in an illustration plant at Cornish Lithium’s Shallow Geothermal Test Site within the UK.
Originally built to check the idea of extracting lithium from geothermal waters, Cornish Lithium is now engaged on an upgraded version of the test plant as its drilling program expands, in the end with the goal of growing an efficient, sustainable and cost-effective lithium extraction provide chain.
The initial enquiry for pumps got here from GeoCubed, a three means partnership between Cornish Lithium and Geothermal Engineering Ltd (GEL). GEL owns a deep borehole site at United Downs in Cornwall the place plans are in place to commission a £4 million ($5.2 million) pilot plant.
