For the second time since 2011 the ‘Global Product Leadership Award in Progressive Cavity Pumps for Oil and Gas’ will be presented to Netzsch by Frost & Sullivan, the U.S.-based growth partnership company. In its motivation statement, Frost & Sullivan explains that the 2014 was issued by evaluating total client experience and strategy implementation excel-lence using a scorecard, including 10 benchmark criteria for both product leadership and management culture, which has set Netzsch clearly apart from the other companies in the field.

Single-flow hygienic Twin-Screw-Pumps, type SLH from ITT Bornemann, have been successfully installed in many applications in the food-, beverage and pharmaceutical industry for many years. It is one of the main functions to pump high viscous fluids. Because of the high rotational speed range (up to 3600 rpm) it is also possible for the pump to handle low viscous products with a high flow velocity. So it is possible to use the SLH Twin-Screw-Pumps also for the CIP-Process.
To reach the high criteria of hygienic design ITT Bornemann designs the pump inside and outside in best way without loss of functionality. As a result the pump is EHEDG EL class 1 certified and also 3-A registered. Now the SLH-4G Twin-Screw-Pump reaches the next level: EHEDG EL Aseptic Certificate. The certificate underlines the hygienic design of SLH-4G Twin-Screw-Pump and confirms the possibility to operate in aseptic applications.
Special eye-catcher at the KSB stand from 11 to 13 November 2014 will be the Salino Pressure Center, a system designed for economical water treatment based on membrane technology. The Frankenthal-based pump manufacturer will showcase this product at the Nuremberg trade fair at the request of engineering contractors operating at a global level since many non-European breweries must treat their process water themselves. The Salino Pressure Center consists of an axial piston pump and an axial piston motor, arranged on a common shaft. Driven by the return flow from the membrane, the axial piston motor transfers its power directly to the pump shaft. As pipes are not required between the individual components, the system takes up minimal space and is highly energy-efficient.

in existing fluid-handling piping systems to provide increased performance with no repiping necessary.
The pump monitoring system CM-1000 Series is now available with a new active valve control functionality. This option delivers energy savings of potentially up to 85 percent. It also reduces maintenance by up to 50 percent and provides safer operation, short term return-on-investment and long term savings for total ownership.
Endress+Hauser inaugurates a new 80,000 square feet state-of-the-art Customer Center in Greenwood, Indiana. This 16 million dollar investment in infrastructure helps to optimize customer support and further underscores Endress+Hauser’s commitment to the US market and its loyal customers in the Americas.
This 4-inch pump is an extension of Blackmer’s XLW Series. These pumps have been designed to perform in the handling and transfer of a variety of abrasive liquids, including oxide primers, inks and paints, where wear-resistance is critical to pump operation. These pumps have also shown to be successful in applications such as vertical and horizontal bead mills, solvent recovery, tank-bottom recirculation, heat-treater supply, enhanced oil recovery, and crude- or hot-oil transfer.
The new XLW4A model features hardened rotor and shaft, liner, end discs and vanes for long life and optimized wear-resistance. These hardened internal parts allow the pump to be used with liquids featuring suspended abrasive particles up to 250 microns in size and at a concentration up to 25%.
Delivering superior safety, improved functionality and a self-standing design, the next generation Depa DH® line of aluminum air-operated double diaphragm pumps has been expanded to include the sizes DH50 and 80. With this addition, the advanced flanged range includes now five sizes that are certified to ATEX Zone 1. These pumps are used in the paint, petrochemical and waste water industries, and are available with a comprehensive selection of options and accessories.
Randal Ferman has more than 35 years’ experience in the pump industry. During his 32 years with Flowserve, a global pump manufacturer, he was responsible for assignments in order engineering, field technical services, hydraulic design, training and product development involving a broad range of pump types and applications. In 2009, he became a full-time principal of Ekwestrel Corp in Los Angeles, providing independent, objective engineering consulting services on new and existing pumping equipment and systems.
This YouTube video covers three major pitfalls to navigate when selecting pumps:
First half year of 2014 shows a turnover of 11.1 billion Danish kroner and a growth of eight per cent in domestic currency. This is equivalent to a growth of two per cent in Danish kroner. The result before taxes amounts to 301 million Danish kroner, which is less than the year before. Solidity has increased from 67 per cent to 69 per cent. “Looking at the global pump market, we have a strong position. At the moment, we experience a positive growth in China of 18 per cent. At the important North American market, we are moving in the right direction with a growth of 12 per cent. But in other countries, things are standing still. This for example applies to certain places in Europe, where the situation in Russia and the Ukraine also affects the result. Put together, we are not satisfied with the result. First of all, our profit is not good enough, says Grundfos’ new Group President”, Mads Nipper.
