Over the past years Wanhua Chemical Group, the world’s largest producer of MDI (Methylene diphenyl diisocyanate) has been experiencing rapid domestic and global growth. As one of Wanhua’s top suppliers for critical equipment for more than 10 years, Richter’s global presence has contributed to the expansion of Wanhua with pumps and valves for the most corrosive applications. Reliable quality and top notch service have been key to our long standing cooperation.
The Business and Social Development Commission takes a thorough look at a challenged world in a report released today. It is called ‘Better Business, Better World‘, and it focuses on how joint action from the political, societal and business spheres is decisive, if the world is to reach the UN’s ambitious Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. Among the key messages are that it is necessary to build sustainable business models around the global issues, if they are to be resolved in a sound and long-lasting way, and that the time for action is now.
“This report is a call to action to business leaders. We are on the edge and business as usual will drive more political opposition and land us with an economy that simply doesn’t work for enough people. We have to switch tracks to a business model that works for a new kind of inclusive growth. Better Business, Better World shows there is a compelling incentive for why the latter isn’t just good for the environment and society; it makes good business sense,” says Mark Malloch-Brown, Chair of the Business and Sustainable Development Commission and former Deputy Secretary-General of the UN.
Chemtech World Expo – February 14-17, 2017 – is one of the largest events for the chemical industry. 600 exhibitors from 20 countries expect up to 40,000 visitors. At the same time eight international conferences and about 150 speakers are offered. In the German pavilion, the German community stand, organized by the VDMA, the company Bungartz will present the concepts of its problem-solver pumps at stand C6A, which also have a high intrinsic safety:
- Wear and corrosion resistant pumps for the fertilizer industry
- Pumps with hydrodynamic shaft seal
- Continuously dry running magnetic driven pumps for liquids with large solids contents
- Cavitation-free pumps with an NPSH value <0.1m
In order to be able to correctly evaluate the operational and maintenance state of a pump, reasonably high levels of technical knowledge and operational experience are required. Training is of crucial importance to ensure engineering excellence and product innovation continue to provide the optimum solutions for applicatons worldwide.
Therefore the Pump engineer training programme was developed.
Endress+Hauser’s Open Integration Partner Program strives to mitigate risks when commissioning customer plant by ensuring that operators can easily integrate their devices and components into automation systems. To date eight companies are in the program:
- Auma Riester,
- Hima Paul Hildebrandt,
- Honeywell Process Solutions,
- Mitsubishi Electric,
- Rockwell Automation,
- R. Stahl and
- Schneider Electric.
These are now joined by

Manufacturing, utilities, and oil & gas companies have been gathering troves of raw data since well before the Internet of Things was a thing. For decades, machines like pumps have collected big analog data about voltage, motion, sound, acceleration, vibration, and more at the farthest reaches of the network. But industries have never had the compute power and technology to process that data and turn it into real-time, data-driven decisions at the “edge” (on premise, away from the data center and closer to the “things”) —until now.
Headquartered in Auxerre, France, Mouvex was founded in 1906 by engineer André Petit when he identified the challenges that gear and lobe pump users were facing in optimizing their process and invented the eccentric disc pump as a result. Since that time, Mouvex has become a worldwide leader in positive displacement pumps and compressors for the transfer of liquids and dry bulk products within the hygienic, chemical, energy, military and transport industries. Mouvex became part of PSG in 2008, and now has operations on five continents with a global network of distributors and original equipment manufacturers.

KSB has been contracted to supply 22 power station pumps for the new Vietnamese Long Phu-1 power plant. The plant’s two 600 MW units are currently being built by a Russian engineering contractor. The complex is situated 20 kilometres east of Soc Trang city, on the right bank of the Hau River.
Included in the order are six boiler feed pump sets. The main and associated booster pumps are driven by 15,200 kW high-voltage electric motors. A geared variable speed coupling installed between the main pump and the motor varies the speed to achieve different operating parameters. Each pump set has been designed for a maximum flow rate of 1,200 m³/h and a head of 4,400 m. The boiler feed water temperature is expected to be 175 °C. To reduce energy consumption, the seven-stage pumps are equipped with optimised hydraulic systems which have proven their quality many times over.
