S-tube offers a combination of high efficiency and reliable operation

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012 von admin

In addition to the combination of a closed impeller with large free passage and high efficiency, the pump is fitted with the energy-efficient Grundfos blueflux motor technology, and thus, it already meets the efficiency requirements that are expected to be introduced for wastewater pumps in the coming years. In addition, great thought has been put into the design to ensure that the pump is easy to service. When you combine the Grundfos wastewater pumps with Grundfos’ control and surveillance systems, you end up with the intelligent, Autoadapt, which automatically ensures optimum operation, even under changing conditions.

Double diaphragm pump with ceramic valves

Friday, May 4th, 2012 von admin

The heart of this pump is a innovative, wearless ceramic valve which ensures 100% starting from as low as 0.3 bar on, accounted for by the specific latching position and the valves’ associated “skip effect” and furthermore enable switching cycles with extremely high frequency.

Achema: Pumps made of fiberglass

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012 von admin

This single stage centrifugal pump Saturn is made of FRP (thermosetting resins reinforced with fiberglass), which provide the casing with a considerable mechanical resistance comparable to metal alloy. The resin basic formula (epoxy vinyl ester) gives to the pump casing a resistance to all corrosive and abrasive acids.

Achema: Centrifugal pumps to handle dangerous chemicals

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012 von admin

Engineered for high performance and maximum flexibility, the 811 Series Centrifugal Pumps feature superior open impeller and seal chambers, which facilitate corrosive and erosive substance transport, heat regulation and routine maintenance. Its enhanced power frames and rigid base plates combine the latest technology with the highest quality construction to minimize the effects of work forces and shaft deflection optimizing cooling and simplifying the installation and maintenance process. These features enable the 811 Series to continue performing reliably long after other ANSI centrifugal pumps wear out or break down.

Achema: Gear pumps for difficult resin-handling

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012 von admin

A dangerous application is the transfer of all types of resins, including those that contain dicyclopentadiene (DCPD), styrene and methylmethacrylate (MMA). Since many of the chemicals used in resin production are flammable and hazardous to health, any amount of product leakage during their handling and transfer, or their components, cannot be tolerated. These gear pumps meet the needs of this critical hazardous chemical-handling application because of their magnetically driven seal-less design, which eliminates any concern of seal failures that can hamper these types of operations.
