KSB, Germany, is scheduled to supply a new, state-of-the-art coal-fired power plant located south-east of Pune in the West Indian state of Maharashtra with 16 pumps by November 2014. India’s national energy authority is building the supercritical power plant comprising two 660-megawatt units in Solapur.
Gardner Denver has restructured the activities within its Engineered Products Group: The CF (Multistage Centrifugal Blowers) organization of Gardner Denver, encompassing the Hoffman and Lamson brands, become part of the Gardner Denver Nash division.
The liquid ring vacuum pump is one of the workhorses in the chemical and petrochemical industry. The construction provides a nearly isothermal compression at comparatively low temperatures. Polymerisation and other undesirable reactions (thermal cracking, cakings) are largely avoided under these conditions. The ring consisting of liquid is used as tightening element desensitising the system against liquid hammers and drops in the gas flow handled, as they often are produced during extraction of inerts from condensers. The construction without touching and wearing parts makes our customers feel confident of reliable availability. A hermetically sealed design with magnetic coupling or canned motor does not only increase availability – since regular change of mechanical shaft seal is no more necessary – but also meets customers requirements in case of toxic gases and pumping liquids demanding “TA-Luft”.
Almatec developed the new E-Series Plastic AODD Pumps, a air-operated double-diaphragm pump with solid plastic housing. These pumps provide the superior containment and safety needed in the transfer of dangerous solvents. This includes benzene, toluene, xylene, styrene and ethyl benzene, which are solvents used in the manufacture of adhesives, plastics and paint and coatings, to name a few.
