    Montreal, Quebec, Canada - Goulds Pumps of Seneca Falls, NY, USA, and GL&V Pulp Group Inc., Nashua, NH jointly announce a Marketing, Sales and Service agreement for a new high intensity chemical mixer for application on medium consistency pulp. Under this agreement the TRI-O Mixer developed by Goulds will be represented in the Americas by GL&V.

Rotor and stationary component combination to reach the highest measured mixing effectiveness demonstrated by any mixer to date.

Mills will realize operating cost reductions through increased mixing efficiency and reduced power costs when compared with most current mixer installations across the industry.

Goulds new mixer development has clearly accomplished this goal and raises the bar in overall mixer performance.
