Wilden: New Diaphragms for Industrial Applications

Monday, May 22nd, 2017 by admin Posted in Component Pump Parts, In Gerneral

The new Chem-Fuse diaphragms are specifically designed for industrial applications. The Chem-Fuse diaphragm technology eliminates the potential leak point at the outer piston as well as outer piston abrasion. This is crucial for industrial applications that pump abrasive or dangerous fluids. The diaphragm design also offers easy cleanability for faster changeovers between products. These features allow Chem-Fuse diaphragms to enhance productivity, reliability and safety.

An additional benefit of Chem-Fuse diaphragms compared to other reduced-stroke integral piston diaphragms is the use of a large integral piston and full-stroke shaft that provides greater efficiency. This design allows Chem-Fuse diaphragms to provide up to 100 % increased flow and suction lift compared to other diaphragms.

Sulzer: Repair of variable speed drives reduces costs and downtime

Thursday, April 20th, 2017 by admin Posted in Energy Efficiency, In Gerneral, Pump Drives, Pump Maintenance

As the legislation surrounding the efficiency of electric motors continues to tighten, the volume of variable speed drives (VSDs) in service increases. Often specified by the motor manufacturer as part of the original installation – or retrofitted to improve efficiency – the drive contains both hardware and software that is designed to work with a motor in a specific application. So, what happens if the drive ceases to operate? Brian Park, Regional Sales Manager for Scotland at Sulzer, looks at the advancing technology and the maintenance processes that need to keep pace.

Blackmer: Screw Pumps for Bitumen Transfer Applications

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017 by admin Posted in In Gerneral, Pump Applications, Shipbuilding

Traditionally used as a cement binder for hot-slab paving, liquid bitumen must be handled at very high temperatures in order to keep it at a workable viscosity. However, even at high temperatures liquid bitumen can be an extremely viscous and shear-sensitive product. Therefore, shipyard operators and tanker owners demand a pumping technology that has been specifically designed to transfer highly viscous liquids over great distances. Realizing the importance for pumping equipment that feature the design and performance characteristics required for transferring highly viscous liquids, Blackmer offers its S Series Twin Screw models for these marine applications.
