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.


Ready-wired metering systems for food and beverage

Thursday, March 15th, 2018 von admin

ProMinent is presenting ready-wired metering systems Dulcodos F&B at Anuga FoodTec 2018. These metering systems have been specifically developed for the food and beverage sector and are used to meter

  • cleaning agents,
  • disinfectants and
  • additives, as well as
  • additives and auxiliary agents

with ultimate precision. They correspond to the fields of application of Directive (EC) No. 1935/2004.


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.

Niels Due Jensen turns 75

Thursday, March 8th, 2018 von admin

The long-term Group President and Chairman of the Board of Grundfos, Niels Due Jensen, turns 75 on March 8, and takes this opportunity to withdraw himself from the position as Chairman of the Board of the primary owner of Grundfos, the Poul Due Jensen Foundation.

Grundfos has been a substantial part of his entire life, and he has made significant impressions in the company, the industry, and the society alike. It was his father, Poul Due Jensen, who established Grundfos back in 1945. From early childhood, Niels developed an interest in the work, which took place in the smithy, and in the complex engineering trade. In 1960, he got an apprenticeship as a machine tool worker at Grundfos, and after having served in the military, he studied to become a machining engineer at Aarhus Teknikum. After that, he worked as an engineer at Danfoss for a few years, and returned to Bjerringbro and Grundfos in 1974, rejoining as development engineer, and later on director.


Vacuum specialist supports Swissloop team

Thursday, March 8th, 2018 von admin

ETH Zurich students have won the SpaceX competition of US entrepreneur Elon Musk with their Swissloop concept against thousands of other teams. Now, in the summer of 2018, the Swiss will once again be able to prove themselves in the next round with their enhanced capsule.

The Swissloop project is supported by Leybold. The vacuum pioneer has been promoting the Hyperloop projects of the technology revolutionary since 2015 with its vacuum know-how.

The company invests heavily in research and product development in order to meet its customers’ requirements in the area of liquid flow measurements.


Innovations for wastewater pumping

At the previous Ifat, Swiss company Egger presented a further development of their completely retracted Turo centrifugal impeller TA for raw sewage conveyance. To date, a large number of pumping stations that are burdened with high solid loads (such as fibrous materials, wet wipes, etc.) have been successfully equipped with them. Blockages could be eliminated or – under extreme load – reduced to a minimum.

At Ifat 2018, the company is now presenting a low-clog and 100% dry-running-safe centrifugal pump hydraulic system. A further development of the Eurodyn hydrodynamic shaft seal in conjunction with Turo Vortex hydraulics makes absolutely dry-run safe use possible. The pump hydraulics and shaft seal operate completely contact-free. In the case of wastewater pumping operations that comply with the regulations, the pump set as designed by Egger enables 4-years of maintenance-free operation.
