KSB: Water for Algeria

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013 von admin

KSB_ATHMANIAKSB received an order for equipping a new pumping station for the Athmania project with ten large water pumps. The pumps type RDLO 700-980 A are to be driven by a 1,810-kW electric motor each. Running at full load, each of the ten pump sets will be delivering 2,025 litres of water per second at a head of 75 metres. To rule out the risk of corrosion, all impellers will be made of stainless steel. The pump casings are made of nodular cast iron.

Atlas Copco: Generators and pumps for SydVästlänken project

Monday, December 2nd, 2013 von admin

atlas2The power grid in Southern Sweden is susceptible to disruptions. To address issues such as transmission bottlenecks, the Swedish national grid operator Svenska Kraftnät has set up the SydVästlänken project. Started in 2012, the project incorporates a 270 km underground cable and a 250km overhead power line.

Swedish contractor Skanska handles the bulk of the underground cable laying. It has invested in Atlas Copco on-site generators and submersible dewatering pumps to meet the demanding specifications of this project.

Alfa Laval: Selecting the right pump for each application

Thursday, November 21st, 2013 von admin

Pumps account for a staggering 10% of global electricity consumption – and as much as half of the total electricity consumption in some applications. Selecting the right pump for each application is the key to significant savings. Energy use can vary enormously between pumps in different processes, so comparing performance and energy consumption in each application is critical. Se some examples in this video

KSB: 8 boiler feed pumps for Indonesia

Thursday, November 21st, 2013 von admin

KSB_HGC-3-11By September 2014, KSB, Germany, will supply eight boiler feed pumps for the new power station in Babelan, Indonesia. The 270 MW oil-fired power station is being built by a Finnish corporate group approximately 20 kilometres east of Jakarta. The order is for the supply of eight boiler feed pumps of which six will be driven by fixed speed 6,000 V electric motors with a 2,260 kW drive rating. To adjust the speed to the varying pump output required, the pump sets have been designed with a turbo coupling between pump and motor. The flow rate of each unit will be around 270 m³/h. The designed head is approximately 1,960 metres and the temperature of the fluid handled 160 °C. The impellers of the 11-stage pumps are made of stainless steel. The total weight of each unit consisting of a pump, coupling and motor is in the region of 25 tonnes.

Griswold: Heavy Duty Centrifugal Pumps for Irrigation

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013 von admin

grisThe E,F&G Series pumps have been specifically designed for capacities up to 682 m3/h (3,000 gpm) or heads up to 95 meters (310 feet) A broad range of sizes and configuration options offer best performance for a wide variety of water pumping applications. These pumps are equipped with a choice of either a close-coupled NEMA electric motor or frame mounted with couplings to electric motors, engines steam turbines or belt-driven motors. The E,F&G Series pump’s 360-degree mounting capabilities extend installation options, while its close-coupled configurations can also be mounted vertically when space is at a minimum.
