Lewa transformed its joint venture, which had been in effect since October 2011, to a fully fledged subsidiary. The complete acquisition of the company paved the way to invest in the expansion of the subsidiary and to improve its position in Russia. In this region, the main focus is on the oil and gas market, but the process industry also plays an important role.

The new structure will enable Lewa to fulfill its wish of better serving the requirements for pump and system operations in the region. At the same time, Lewa plans to expand the on-site service capacities.
“Through our own subsidiary, we will be able to create more added value in the region, which our customers there greatly appreciate. Therefore, the contract signing will help us improve our market position over the long term,” exclaims Glasmeyer, explaining the effects of the acquisition.

Recently Eastman put three new parts into operation at the site in Middelburg: a 35-meter high destillation tower, a loading and unloading dock for trucks, and a storage tank with an internal floating roof.

This project includes 19 Dickow pump units with motor, coupling and base plate. The pumps installed are type HZMR (horizontal multistage, magnetic coupled), NMR (horizontal single stage, magnetic coupled) and NCL (horizontal single stage, mechanically sealed). Amongst these is Dickows’ 200.000st pump, used for the new storage tank with floating roof.

KSB: Mobile app brings Industry 4.0 to all pumps

Friday, May 15th, 2015 von admin

KSB_Sonolyzer_001The KSB Sonolyzer app is based on an algorithm that has been integrated in PumpMeter units for five years now, of which well over 30,000 have already been sold.
The smartphone-based application does not require knowledge of the individual characteristic curve or any additional technical data of the pump set to be measured, however, and can also be used with pumps from other manufacturers. Users can utilise the app to determine the load at which each centrifugal pump driven by a fixed-speed asynchronous motor is being operated. The following data must be entered for this purpose: the motor rating, the rated motor speed, the head and the flow rate of the pump. This information can be read from the name plate affixed to every pump.

Lewa: Safe pumping of sour crude oil

Thursday, May 7th, 2015 von admin

SauerölpumpeCritical applications of conveying mixtures of acidic hydrocarbon/water to the washing system are a challenge for any pump manufacturer. This was also the case in one recent project Lewa handled in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. Lewa have designed and supplied 16 pumps to a major construction company in Abu Dhabi specifically designed to handle this critical application. Two processes required to pump

  • liquid hydrocarbons from the flare knock-out drum or the blow-down drum respectively and
  • convey the acidic hydrocarbon/water mixture back into the oil line to the washing system

Since the differences in these two processes are only minor, it was possible to supply 16 mechanically identical pumps of the Ecoflow series, driven by 55 kW electric motors.
