Sulzer: Centrifugal Pump Package to Fibria Celulose in Brazil

Friday, January 29th, 2016 von admin

Ahlstar_Process_PumpSulzer has been awarded a frame contract for process and medium consistency pumps to the Horizonte 2 project by Fibria Celulose SA, a Brazilian forestry company and the world’s leading eucalyptus pulp producer. Fibria’s new production line will be built in the Três Lagoas Unit in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul and it is scheduled for startup in late 2017.

Fibria’s new production line with an annual capacity of 1.75 million tons will increase the capacity of Fibria’s existing Três Lagoas mill to 3.05 million tons of pulp per year. Sulzer supplies the manufacturing, testing, packaging, and installation supervision of the centrifugal pumps. The pump package contains highly efficient

International Rotating Equipment Conference 2016

Thursday, January 28th, 2016 von admin

Half of the technical exhibition sold out

VDMA Pumps + Systems as well as VDMA Compressors, Compressed Air and Vacuum Technology are organising the „3rd International Rotating Equipment Conference – Pumps, Compressors and Vacuum Technology“ in the Congress Center of Düsseldorf, Germany, from 14 to 15 September 2016, with three forums under one roof: the Pump Users International Forum, the Compressor Users International Forum and the EFRC (European Forum for Reciprocating Compressors) conference.

Almost 50 per cent of booths for the accompanying technical exhibition of the International Rotating Equipment Conference 2016 have already been booked. So interested companies laid a faster pace than at the successful event 2012. At that time about 70 companies showed their products and services on 700 square metres.

Packo: Reduced production losses thanks to damage free product handling

Monday, January 25th, 2016 von admin

VPCP-doorsnedeThe full geometry of both the impeller and the pump casing was studied via CFD and redesigned with a view to the largest possible free passage and minimal product damage in the widest possible working area. The result of months of CFD study and several practice tests is a range of four pump types with a significantly larger pump casing but with the same mounting dimensions as the VDKM pumps (except for type 150-400).

The principle remains a complete stainless steel pump, like the Packo standard dictates. Cleanability, corrosion resistance and more strict hygiene requirements, after all, are gaining importance.

The pump will be on show at Fruitlogistica, Berlin 3. – 5. January 2016 7.1b/A-02

Sundyne: New low NPSHr, high-flow pump

Thursday, January 14th, 2016 von admin

sundyneThe Sundyne LMV-803Lr is an API 610 compliant pump available in either OH3 or OH5 motor mounting configuration that provides ultra-low NPSHr performance – approximately 5 ft (1.5 m), across the entire performance range – for flows to 800 GPM (180 m³ / hr) and heads to 1,000 ft (305 m).

The ultra-low NPSHr allows the pump to be installed at grade level, eliminating the expense of installation in a pit and performing maintenance in a confined space. The vertical design is ideal for use in refineries, NGL, petrochemical and chemical plants, as well as handling light hydrocarbon handling services, such as bottom pumps for de-ethanizers.

Blackmer: Global Release of S Series Screw Pumps

Friday, January 8th, 2016 von admin

Blackmer_S-SeriesS Series are self-priming double-ended positive displacement pumps available with or without external timing gears and bearings. Twin and triple screw designs provide complete axial balancing of the rotating screws and their timing technologies eliminate metal-to-metal contact with the pump.

S Series pumps are Atex-certified for use in explosive or dangerous environments, and have been specifically designed to address the difficult pumping challenges found in the oil & gas, process and marine industries. S Series pumps provide solutions that can meet the toughest application challenges regardless of temperature, viscosity or pressure.
