KSB: Pumps for Brazilian cellulose production

Friday, August 19th, 2016 by admin Posted in In Gerneral, Industry News, Power Generation, Pulp - Paper

August and October this year will see the KSB group supply three boiler feed pumps for a new cellulose production plant located in Três Lagoas, in the federal state of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil. The customer is one of the world’s leading producers of cellulose using eucalyptus plants.

The delivery comprises three HGC pumps, two of which are equipped with 4,350 kW, two-pole 4,000 volt variable-speed motors. The third pump set is driven by a turbine, also rated 4,350 kW. The flow rate of each pump set is around 1,011 cubic metres per hour and the discharge head is slightly more than 1,400 metres. All wetted parts are made of chrome steel.

Hot water version

The new CombiTherm Plus pump provides transfer of hot fluids without the need for additional, external cooling systems. The pump is available in two configurations suitable for the pumping of hot oil or hot water and provides an highly efficient and pumping solution. The air-cooled CombiTherm Plus pump provides transfer of hot oil or hot water in a wide range of applications including

  • injection molding,
  • chemical processing,
  • asphalt / bitumen and tar processing,
  • deep frying systems,
  • steam generators,
  • fuel heaters and
  • heat recovery systems.

The pump keeps fluid temperatures uniform to ensure processes are efficient while its design protects seal faces and bearings from the heat of the fluid; ensuring durable, low maintenance, long life operation.

KSB opimized mechanical seal for waste water pumps

Friday, July 15th, 2016 by admin Posted in Gaskets Seals

The new double mechanical seal in tandem arrangement is especially well suited to the particular requirements of dry-installed and wet-installed waste water pumps. During development of the 4STQ – a double mechanical seal module – KSB’s engineers strove to ensure that its installation and removal remained as straightforward as possible. Assembly fixtures and fastening bolts are not required, and the seal’s modular design minimises downtime during maintenance inspections as well as preventing faulty reassembly.

Packo: Pumps for inline dispersing, mixing and homogenizing

Thursday, July 14th, 2016 by admin Posted in Food Beverage, In Gerneral, Pharmaceutical, Pump Applications

shear mixing illustratie (2)The shear pumps series SFP2 and SFP3 have an innovative stator (patent pending) providing an efficiency improvement between 70 and 100 % compared to current technologies available. Moreover, one single system is sufficient for the in-line mixing, dispersing and homogenizing, as well as for pumping the final product.

Typical applications are among other things the mixing of two liquids having a large different specific gravity and/or viscosity as well as dispersing of solids in liquids.

Almatec: High-Pressure Pump Series

Monday, July 4th, 2016 by admin Posted in In Gerneral, Pump Technology

Almatec-AHD_AHS SeriesThis new high-pressure pump series AHD/AHS are developed for applications up to 15 bar (218 psig) such as filter press applications.

The “D” in AHD stands for Duplex, which means the reinforcement of the drive pressure is more than 2:1 by the internal pressure boosting stage. This is achieved thanks to a maximum drive pressure of 7 bar (100 psig), which allows the AHD to build up discharge pressures up to 15 bar (218 psig). AHD Series pumps are available in three sizes (AHD 15, 25 and 40) with maximum capacities of 4, 10 and 20 m3/h (17, 44 and 87 gpm).

The new AHS Series, which does not include an internal pressure booster, features an extremely rugged housing making it suitable for higher discharge pressures. The “S” in AHS stands from Simplex, meaning the drive pressure is transferred to the medium in a ration of 1:1.
