The new CXR Series AODD pump is an extension of Almatec’s CX Series family of general-purpose pumps. CXR Series pumps are available in four sizes: 10, 20, 50, and 130. The main benefit of the CXR pumps is their design flexibility, which allows them to be used for a number of different low- to medium-duty applications, such as a drum pump.
All CXR models can easily be converted from ball to cylinder valves, and vice versa. Incorporating ball valves is ideal for liquids containing particles, while cylinder valves are ideal for transfer applications requiring superior suction lift.
Worldwide, several thousand fixed-speed pump sets have already been equipped with the PumpMeter monitoring unit. Based on the load profile this unit records for the pump, KSB experts provide tangible recommendations for action to increase the efficiency and availability of the analysed pump.
Largest single order in company’s history: The Umm Wual phosphate project in northern Saudi Arabia, concerned with the conveyance of the country’s rich deposits of phosphates, is currently being implemented on behalf of Ma’aden (Saudi Arabian Mining Company). The deposits will, among other things, be processed to produce NPK and DAP fertilisers. To this end, Ma‘aden has commissioned the construction of a new plant for the production of fertilisers at the Waad Al-Shamal phosphate industrial complex. The plant will be designed and built by the Spanish industrial plant manufacturer Intecsa Ingenieria Industrial SA. Ma’aden Phosphates Company, one of the largest fertiliser producers in the world, will act as plant operator.
Up to Spring 2015, Friatec AG – Division Rheinhütte Pumpen will supply a total of 85 complete pump units for this plant.
Within the various application of coatings for architectural glass and large area coatings as such, the demand for high-quality functional glass is soaring, especially for Low-E glass in functional combinations with other glass types. The requirements for the manufacturing of such quality glasses are high and heavily dependent on the quality of the vacuum processes involved. At the Glasstec Exhibition in Duesseldorf, Germany 21-24-October 2014, Hall 12, Booth F37, Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum will show its specialized products covering the fore vacuum and the high vacuum range of the production chain.
The new Hidrax™ HT thrust bearings are developed for high-temperature applications in electric submersible pumps. These pad bearings can sustain unit loads of 8 MPa (1160 psi) at oil bath temperatures up to 300°C (572°F).
Technological advances in steam-assisted gravity drainage are increasing operating temperatures and placing increased demands on the thrust bearings located in the motor seal/protector section of the electric submersible pumps string.
Pune-headquartered KEPL, a Kirloskar Brothers group company, was awarded Gold Trophies at an event organised by the Pune Chapter of Quality Circle Forum of India (QCFI) at their 29th Annual Convention on Quality Concepts. KEPL teams from CMM Inspection, Pump Machine shop and Turbine Machine shop departments presented case studies on quality improvement in the manufacturing process and shared their success stories. KEPL participated in this event with the Kaizen theme “Quality in everything” which is one of the prime values of the company.
Agreement covers intellectual property relating to continuous processing of biopharmaceutical manufacturing products.
