KSB Pumps Ltd. India won a substantial order for the supply of six boiler feed pumps to be installed in the new, ultra-modern fossil-fuelled power station located in Tanda in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.India’s national power utility is currently building two new power plant units there, each with a capacity of 600 MW. The pumps are designed for a pressure of 500 bar. An electric motor and a turbine with power ratings of 11 MW and 17 MW respectively will serve to drive the pumps.
PG Flow Solutions AS (PG), majority owned by Norvestor VI, L.P. (Norvestor) has acquired 100% of the shares in the UK high-pressure pumping specialist Calder ltd. (Calder). Calder is a leading high-end solution provider across industries for high-pressure pump solutions, with particular success within the oil & gas market where the company has proudly served leading oil services companies and operators since its inception in 1981.

GEA has successfully completed the acquisition of Hilge, domiciled in Bodenheim, Germany, after approval by the relevant antitrust authorities. GEA is using this acquisition to expand its portfolio in the area of high performance sanitary pumps, strengthening its position as a system solutions provider for hygienic and aseptic process environments.
- water supply,
- in small pressure booster systems as well as
- in light industrial applications.
- Water treatment is another application covered by this pump series.
The stainless steel variant Comeo C is ACS and WRAS approved for drinking water.
The Stallion series are developed for pumping fluids with high solid content. A shock-absorbing polyurethane screen base absorbs the impact from constant assault by solid particles. The pumps also feature a large internal clearance and flow-through design to keep the pump from clogging; an integrated suction strainer; and an altered ball/seat check valve assembly. These pumps are made for rugged utilitarian applications that require a robust design.
Stallion pumps now also come equipped with the Wilden Pro-Flo Shift ADS.
The Call for Papers for the International Rotating Equipment Conference 2016 is now available and ready for download at www.introequipcon.com. „We hereby invite interested experts and decision makers from application, manufacturing, engineering and science from pump (systems) as well as compressors, compressed air and vacuum technology to submit their proposals for technical papers“, says Christoph Singrün, Managing Director at VDMA Pumps + Systems as well as Compressors, Compressed Air and Vacuum Technology. At www.introequipcon.com/conference interested persons will find the link „Submit your abstract here“. They can submit their proposals online by 27 November 2015 at the latest.
Flotronic Pumps Limited, the UK-based specialist manufacturer of air-operated double diaphragm pumps, having already secured 3-A Sanitary Standards, Inc (3-A SSI) approval for their ‘H’ series pump, have now achieved the European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group (EHEDG) accreditation for their new ‘E’ Series pump.
The ‘E’ Series pump has been specifically designed for the Food and Beverage industry and other processes where product contamination must be avoided. The pump’s features include Flotronic’s established and unique ‘One-Nut’ pump design which allows swift diaphragm access without disconnecting process pipework. The internal surfaces of the ‘E’ Series pump can be effectively ‘cleaned in place’ or, alternatively, easy dismantling can be carried out for cleaning and inspection. Cleaning is aided by the provision of polished wetted surfaces to 0.8μm Ra maximum and an electro-polished overall finish. Cleanability is also assisted by the incorporation of a support stand whereby the pump can be inverted for full draining.
With the HRC N mechanical seal series, EagleBurgmann provides a seal system (version DIN 24960, Part C) for standard chemical pumps with conically opened sealed space that complies with the requirements for a standardized and application-related seal solution.
As a novelty within the HRC… N series, EagleBurgmann has now launched the optimized double seal HRC3300N on the market that has the same mounting dimensions and which uses some of the non-variable parts from the predecessor HRC3000N. A new stationary seat that does not require binding was used. This, and the improvements to the seal on the atmosphere side, makes the HRC3300N definitely more service friendly. Omitting the binding makes it possible to use the high-performance DiamondFace diamond coating, and the operating temperature increases to +200°C (+392°F). Read the rest of this entry »
