The importance of heavy duty "screw pumps" capable of pumping emulsified high viscous oils including debris was clearly shown during the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska, USA.
After five months as service engineer during the Exxon Valdez oil spill and other practical experience from various operations world wide, Mr Anders Johansson therefore developed the "Twin Disc Screw" Technology in 1990 to meet this demand.
Practical use and experience of existing oil spill equipment has
always been important for our engineers when improving Foilex products.
