Friday, October 27th, 2017 von admin

The Futur S/SH pump series is now available in 316 stainless steel with high surface finish for the transfer of pure solvents in the semiconductor industry.

Realizing the importance of reliable and contamination-free pump performance in critical semiconductor operations, Futur S/SH Series pumps are cleaned several times, then assembled and tested in a cleanroom line before being released for delivery. Futur S/SH Series pumps incorporate a “straight-through flow pattern” with only one wetted housing part (center housing) while the air control system and the air chambers are located in the side housings.

Wangen: New hygienic twin screw pump

Thursday, October 19th, 2017 von admin

This new pump generation offers a spindle change without re-synchronisation of the spindle shafts. All you have to do is remove the housing and loosen the screws and the spindles can then be removed in order to replace the seal in a fast and straightforward manner, for example. Thanks to a self-centring flange casing, which is available as an option, the coupling is optimally aligned automatically. As a result, renewed alignment of the coupling with the pump, e.g. after service activities, is not required. In addition, the Twin guarantees a long service life, among other things, as a result of the further-developed, high-quality components and materials, such as the further-developed shafts.

Facing the worst drought on record in the Colorado River Basin, as lake levels continue to fall, the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) is building a low lake level pumping station to ensure Las Vegas and Southern Nevada maintains access to its primary water supplies in Lake Mead. Lake Mead water levels have dropped more than 40 m (131 feet) since the drought began in 2000. The new pumping station will allow SNWA to pump water from Lake Mead from an elevation as low as 267 m (875 feet) above sea level into the water treatment facilities and further on to provide water to the city of Las Vegas and neighbor community area.
