Synconta_900B_grey_cut_web_smallThe new Synconta lifting station is a synthetic prefabricated sump, designed as a single or double pumping station for below-ground installation. It is developed for the automatic pumping of wastewater and sewage from areas below the backwash level in accordance with DIN EN 12050-1. The new Synconta has a stronger tank design than the previous range and it can be provided with an optional concrete cover for the load class D 400, which means that it can be driven over for example by a truck.

Synconta is designed for fitting with Sulzer pumps of the Piranha, AS, and MF ranges. The new lifting station replaces the existing Synconta 801, 901-902 range. A concrete cover is available for areas with either pedestrian or vehicular traffic. The tank can be fitted with a plastic lockable lid when installed in areas without any kind of traffic.

Fristam adds double-screw technology to its pump portfolio

Thursday, May 12th, 2016 by admin Posted in Biotechnology, Chemical, Food Beverage, In Gerneral, Pharmaceutical, Pump Applications

FDS_mit_FoerderschraubenThe pump casing of Fristam FDS pumps comes in three parts, consisting of an intermediate flange, the screw casing and the pump cover. This enables individual adaptation of the connections to any conceivable production system requirement. Thanks to central positioning of the gearwheels inside the bearing support area, the entire pump comes in a very compact design. Moreover, its massive shaft has reinforcements in the area of critical diameters to ensure maximum rigidity. Further stability is achieved through a combination of particular large bearings and an increased bearing distance. The result is smooth running with minimal wear.

Sundyne: API 685 Sealless Pumps

Thursday, April 21st, 2016 by admin Posted in In Gerneral, Industry News, Oil / Gas, Pump Applications

GSPV_2100x1610A major Malaysian refinery is currently upgrading equipment throughout their facility. As refining and petrochemical processing operators around the world face increasing pressure to comply with stringent health and safety regulations, they are replacing their aging single seal pumps with efficient and highly reliable sealless magnetic drive pumps. These pumps eliminate dangerous leaks and put an end to costly seal maintenance.

The customer required a cost effective and highly reliable pump to replace existing API 610 vertical pumps with single seal systems that are prone to leakage and emissions. Sundyne specified the GSPV API 685 sealless magnetic drive vertical pump for their application. In total, Sundyne provided 6 vertical and 2 horizontal API 685 pumps to directly replace the old sealed units handling stripper reflux and debutanizer reflux applications.
