Almatec: Flexible choice of product connections

Monday, April 20th, 2015 by admin Posted in In Gerneral, Pump Technology

Almatec_CXM_BildThe new Almatec air-operated diaphragm pump series CXM – shown at Achema 2015 –  consists of four sizes and can be equipped with seven different product connections. This is possible thanks to the modular design of the pumps. For each pump of the sizes 20, 50 and 130 two center blocks are available with different connection types and sizes.

This wide range of product connections allows a precise adjustment of the pump to the specific application. This is reinforced by the alternative choice between a ball and cylinder valve system, which can also be converted to each other. Ball valves are ideal for liquids containing particles, cylinder valves for superior suction lift.

Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum celebrates 165 years vacuum technology

Tuesday, April 14th, 2015 by admin Posted in In Gerneral, Industry News, Vacuum Pumps

The foundation stone was laid in 1850: In this year, the company’s founder Ernst Leybold officially took over this enterprise as his own, paving the way for a comprehensive industrial use of vacuum technology. Even after selling the company again in 1970, his vision remained. One of the most important mile stones in the company’s history is the development of the molecular pump by physicist Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Gaede.

Abel: Hydraulic Triplex Diaphragm Pumps at Achema

Tuesday, April 14th, 2015 by admin Posted in Chemical, In Gerneral, Pump Applications, Pump Technology

Hydraulische Triplex MembranpumpeVery high operating pressures in connection with increased flow rates create special environments for pumps. When aggressive, toxic, flammable, shear-sensitive or abrasive materials are present, a HMT pump is suitable. This simple operating, slow-running triplex piston diaphragm pump operates safely, even when dry, and can be utilised in conditions where the pressures reach 250 bar.

Hapag Lloyd chooses electronic pump control from Colfax

Wednesday, April 8th, 2015 by admin Posted in In Gerneral, Industry News, Shipbuilding

Hapag Lloyd will equip ships of the 13,200-TEU Hamburg Express class and other vessels with the CM-1000® pump control system. The CM-1000 system controls the flow rates of seawater cooling pumps based on the temperature of the fresh water and the current need for coolant. As a result, the amount of seawater pumped into the seawater cooler matches requirements, saving electrical power on board the ship.

KBL: New canned motor pump series

Wednesday, March 25th, 2015 by admin Posted in Cryogenic Cooling, In Gerneral

i-CAN PumpThe seal-less and gland-less mono-block design of the pump enables it to cater to industries like

  • ice-making plants,
  • cold storages,
  • air-conditioning plants,
  • dairies and
  • some small scale industries involved in refrigeration-related businesses.

The pump’s compact, lightweight yet sturdy design with less number of components helps it to minimize assembly and dismantling time and occupy less space. The pump named i-Can is hailed as a step-up from the conventional mechanical seal pump category which requires heavy maintenance.

KTR: Pump coupling for explosive atmospheres

Monday, March 9th, 2015 by admin Posted in In Gerneral, Pump Drives

ktr-3The jaw geometry of the Rotex Non-Sparking consists of a conductive high-tenacity plastic that is injected onto the hub body which continues to be made of steel or other metals such as aluminium. The newly developed synthetic material prevents any static charging and is also designed to be so hardwearing that even in cases of elastomer wear out, torque will still be transmitted without any danger of sparking. As a result, maintenance work can be postponed to a convenient time frame. The failsafe and maintenance-free Rotex Non-Sparking is certified under EU directive 94/9/EC (ATEX 95) and thus deemed suitable for the use in explosive atmospheres.
