Andritz will supply 121 pumps and 18 booster stations for a new drinking water treatment plant in Samawa, Iraq, on behalf of PWT Wasser- und Abwassertechnik, Germany. The new plant will pump up 220,000 m³ of water from a branch of the river Euphrat, which will then be processed into drinking water, fed to a pipework, and distributed to end-consumers via nine pumping stations.
The Swiss pump manufacturer offers a broad range of different gear pumps, predominantly for the chemical process industry. This include the following models:
You can only change what is accessible by measurement – whoever wants to control a process flow of a pump needs reliable current data on the one hand, and on the other, possible intelligent linking and interpretation of this data: Sensors deliver data, microchips have stored software to interpret this and actuators implement the commands. To also offer technical benchmarks, the pump manufacturer Grundfos maintains well-equipped own research and development departments, finance and personnel dealing with motors, frequency converters, sensors, microchips and their programming.
The ‘Direct Sensor’ development is a micro-mechanical semiconductor sensor (MEMS, Micro-Electro-Mechanical System), which is produced in its own wafer fabrication facility of purity grade 10.
Netzsch has developed the “Full Service in Place” (FSIP) concept for pump systems – constituting an inconspicuous but essential process element in many applications. This makes interventions in the pump equipment possible without dismantling from the piping. This approach has proven itself in practice already for several years with the Tornado T2 rotary lobe pumps, and a FSIP version of the progressing cavity pump will now be introduced as well. The new design saves time on inspection, repair and cleaning work while even reducing the required installation space.
EagleBurgmann Cartex cartridge mechanical seals are completely pre-assembled and exactly positioned component seals with lid and shaft sleeve. They are fitted in the pumps of many industrial sectors, such as e.g. in chemistry, in water applications, in the food industry and in many other applications. More than 500,000 seals have been installed in the meantime and have proven their reliability and economic efficiency.
Maag presents a new S Series of screw pumps that offer the process industries a variety of options for conveying challenging fluids. These rotary positive-displacement pumps provide numerous advantages over conventional technologies including
- Atex-certified for use in explosive or dangerous environments.
- Self priming capability, good suction performance
- Excellent speed/output linearity
- Low pulsation
- Constant flow even at considerably different pressures and volumes
- Compact footprint and ease of maintenance.
The hydraulic diaphragm metering Orlita Evolution form an integrated product range with stroke lengths of 15 to 40 mm. This covers the capacity range from 3 to 7,400 l/h at 400 to 10 bar. A wide range of drive versions is available, including some for use in Ex-zone 1 and 2. The Orlita Evolution product range is designed to comply with API 675. This pump serie meets the most exacting safety requirements as an extremely robust hydraulic diaphragm metering pump. It stands out thanks to its PTFE multi-layer diaphragm with integral diaphragm rupture warning system and unique diaphragm position control. Its modular construction offers extremely good flexibility in terms of applications.
With the DF(P)DGS6 EagleBurgmann offers reliable shaft sealing for API 610 high-performance pumps, e.g. BB3 and BB4 process pumps, and vertical pumps applied in liquefied gas fractionation, in pump stations of downstream NGL (Natural Gas Liquids) pipelines and also in CO2 applications.
Numerous plant operators experience problems incurred by temperature and pressure fluctuations in the pump. In conjunction with the low vapor pressure margin of the medium (e.g. ethane, propane), this can cause phase transitions between liquid and gas at the seal faces – they run dry. Conventional mechanical seals consequently sustain damages which results in seal failures.
Vegetable oils and fats determine the texture, the look, the smell and the taste of many foods. They also protect the skin as cosmetics and transport the healing power of drugs in ointments and essences. Also in technology, oils and fats from oilseeds – rapeseed, soya beans and sunflower seeds play an important role. They can be processed among other things for pollution-free coolants for use in metalworking and for biodegradable lubricants and hydraulic oils. The oils and fats processing industry is continually looking for more efficient processes, quality and cost reasons. Maximum oil yield, minimum oil losses and energy savings are the relevant outcomes. Health aspects come into play: Only precise and sensitive processing (refining, hydrogenation) ensures that no unwanted reaction products occur.
Pumps are needed in all process steps of the refining of vegetable oils and vegetable fats
