Up to 33,000 m³/h

Friday, March 23rd, 2018 von admin

In response to the worldwide increase in large waste water projects, KSB has extended its range of large dry-installed waste water pumps. The pump manufacturer has developed an extra 15 sizes to add to its Sewatec pump series.

The maximum flow rate of the largest version will be up to 33,000 m³/h with a drive rating exceeding one megawatt.

An example of these pump sets will be showcased at the pump manufacturer’s trade fair stand at this year’s Ifat in Munich.

Hygienic high-pressure pumps for dairies

Wednesday, March 21st, 2018 von admin

Gea presented its first high-pressure pump for membrane filtrations such as reverse osmosis and nanofiltration in dairies at Anuga FoodTec 2018. The Hilge Hygia H is designed for system pressures up to 64 bar with outstanding cleanability characteristics and a modular motor connection.

The new high-pressure pump is based on the Hygia premium range of hygienic pumps, which has been proven for decades and is suitable for a large number of viscous fluids and applications as a result of its high surface quality and adaptability. It is designed to pump fluids as well as homogeneous media containing air or gas and withstands a system pressure of 64 bar. “40 bar is standard in the dairy industry”, says Martin Zickler, product manager for hygienic pumps at Gea.

Twin screw pumps for food applications

Wednesday, March 21st, 2018 von admin

Hyghspin twin screw pumps have a compact design and many versatile and flexible uses. The design of these pumps do follow hygienic design criteria. Their block construction saves space and always ensures a correctly aligned coupling.

Mobile units including frequency converter and service switch are another feature of this pump range. These units stand out, among other things, on account of their self-priming qualities and ease of service. Safe-to-run dry seals, for example, require no flushing.

Peristaltic pumps now available with hygienic hoses

Monday, March 19th, 2018 von admin

The Mouvex Abaque Series peristaltic pumps are now available with FDA and EC 1935/2004 certified hoses. By incorporating these hygienic hoses, these pumps are now suited for the production of food and beverage products that require strict hygienic standards.

The design of Abaque pumps also eliminates product contamination since the pumped product is kept completely in the hose and is not exposed to the moving parts of the pump. Additionally, the smooth operation of these pumps allows them to handle the shear-sensitive products with delicate particles.

Newly expanded range of pharmaceutical pumps

Monday, March 19th, 2018 von admin

Alfa Laval is expanding its range of UltraPure pharmaceutical pumps with even more selection. Whether a pharmaceutical or biotech process requires a centrifugal or PD (positive displacement) pump, the complete range of Alfa Laval UltraPure pumps cover virtually any pharma or biotech need. “These are safe and reliable pumps, with features such as hygienic design, repeatability and minimized contamination risk,” says Alfa Laval UltraPure Portfolio Manager John Walker. “Along with higher yields, increased uptime and the low energy consumption, this translates into lower user costs. As sustainability aspects continue to gain traction in the market, the pharma and biotech industry will appreciate the energy efficiency and low CO2 footprint.”

Pumping sparkling wine without foaming

Friday, March 16th, 2018 von admin

CO2 increases the tendency of the beverage to foam, which impairs the quality of the goods. An Italian winery has therefore been using a particularly low-pulsation, hygienically safe rotary lobe pump of German manufacturer Netzsch.

This T.Sano pump guarantees not only the desired pressure over the entire pumping distance – and thus the quality of the wine – but also reliably prevents the un-wanted development of foam. In this way, more precise dosing and better barrel emptying is achieved.

KSB puts pumps into the Internet of Things

Thursday, March 15th, 2018 von admin

At this year’s Achema, KSB is presenting a new pump monitoring system called KSB Guard. Networked vibration and temperature sensors fitted directly to the pump make availability at plant level transparent. The system ensures that changes in the operating behaviour of the machine are detected at an early stage, and maintenance work can be better planned, without having to be on site with the pump. Unlike previous systems, KSB Guard is ideally suited for retrofitting. The sensor unit is attached to the bearing bracket or the drive lantern of the pump using a magnet and adhesive, and can be mounted during operation, with no need for changes to the machine. A battery unit, which is also supplied, provides self-sufficient power supply.
