20 year pump project

Published:  27 January, 2014

When a number of MONO pumps were switched off recently, it marked the end of a 20-year operation to preserve the remains of an historic Tudor warship, the Mary Rose. The progressing cavity pumps from Mono have been used to help spray the fragile timbers of the Mary Rose with a mixture of water and wax – a crucial stage in the preservation process which has now come to an end.

Mono’s association with the ship began in 1994, when pair of E122 progressing cavity pumps were chosen for duty/standby roles to help spray the hull continuously with a solution of Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) to stabilise its waterlogged timbers,

supported by four smaller Mono pumps, which operated the heating and cooling circuits that maintained the PEG at an optimum spray temperature.
