Predictive maintenance solution improves pump diagnostics

Thursday, November 29th, 2018 von admin

Griswold, a manufacturer of centrifugal pumps, developed SafeGuard as an predictive maintenance solution. It allows both the pump and the motor to be remotely monitored 24/7 with continuous cloud connectivity, delivering the true value of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). If an issue occurs, a proactive alert is automatically generated, including clear actionable guidance that can be easily followed by maintenance personnel to resolve the root cause of the issue. This proactive approach to pump monitoring can help lower maintenance costs “by up to 30% and result in up to 75% fewer breakdowns” – acc. an information of the manufacturer.

New oil-free, dry compressing screw vacuum pump

Thursday, November 29th, 2018 von admin

The Leybold specialists named the new 100% oil-free, dry compressing screw vacuum pump Varodry. These pumps will initially be available in the sizes for 65 m³/h and 100 m³/h, the 160 and 200 m³/h versions are already in preparation.

The pumps of the Varodry series are developed for the manufacturing industry. In industrial processes, vacuum pumps do not only need to handle clean air, but also dirt, particles, outgassing of media and vapors. Processes do also not always work stable, other disturbance factors might also be involved. The pump must be able to tolerate all of this. In addition, these pumps are able to handle vapors in the best possible way. Aand due to its integrated silencer the pump offers also a quiet and pleasant sound profile.

IE5 motor with electronic speed control for the IEC market

Wednesday, November 28th, 2018 von admin

WEG developed electronically commutated motors (WECM) for heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) applications in the IEC market at this year’s edition of SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg (Germany). The energy-efficient permanent magnet motors with aluminium housings in frame size IEC 80 cover the power range from 0.12 W to 1.1 kW, with a choice of rated speeds: 1,500, 1,800 and 3,000 rpm. Integrated electronic speed control enables the drive units (motor and variable speed drive) to achieve market-leading efficiency levels. In addition, the low-noise, compact WECM motors fulfil all relevant IEC and HVAC standards. Easy programming and outstanding efficiency make them a cost-effective solution for pump, fan and ventilator manufacturers.

Endress+Hauser closer to customers in Saudi Arabia

Wednesday, November 28th, 2018 von admin

Endress+Hauser has invested roughly three million euros in a modern, state-of-the-art calibration and training center in the industrial city of Jubail, Saudi Arabia, thus strengthing direct contact with customers in the Middle East while supporting the country’s economic development.

Saudi Arabia wants to expand the private business sector and become less reliant on oil production, two key goals of the Vision 2030 program. “It was this vision that inspired us to create the new calibration and training center,” said Mohammed Abdellah, Managing Director of Endress+Hauser Saudi Arabia, during the inauguration ceremony. “With this new center, we are supporting the country to achieve these reforms and can also increase the local added value by offering local solutions,” he adds.

Valve positioner with improved diagnostics functions

Monday, November 26th, 2018 von admin

With the Sipart PS100, Siemens is presenting a new positioner that is easy to commission and highly robust. The Sipart PS100 can be initialized quickly at the touch of a button, automatically adjusting itself to the attached valve. If required, it is possible to optimize the positioner for a specific application with just one further touch of a button. Just as some cameras feature portrait, sport or night mode, the positioner can be set to different modes for precise and fast adjustment, open/close operation and other applications.

Battery pump for flexible portability

Friday, November 23rd, 2018 von admin

High pressure hydraulic tools specialist, Enerpac, announces the ZC-Series cordless hydraulic pump combining the performance of an electric pump with the convenience and portability of a battery pump. The ZC-Series is ideal for jobs that require a combination of portability, speed and safety.

These cordless pumps work well for remote locations without access to power and indoors where trip hazards, ergonomics or size is a concern. The ZC-Series pumps are suited for use in industrial applications such as foundation repair, rail maintenance and concrete post-tensioning. Since this cordless solution is quiet, it’s also ideal for applications where noise and emissions from gas powered equipment are a concern.

Submersible borehole pumps for very high heads

Tuesday, November 20th, 2018 von admin

These new submersible borehole pumps developed by KSB have a diameter of up to 50 inches, i.e. 1250 mm, and a drive rating of up to 5 MW. These pumps will be capable of handling

  • flow rates of up to 5000 m³/h
  • at heads of up to 1500 m.

Compared with dry-installed pump sets, the advantage of submersible borehole pumps is -acc. to an information of the manufacturer- “the notably longer service life and the fact that pumps with wet motors are not compromised by flooding.” KSB is one of the few manufacturers worldwide to offer double-entry designs for particularly high load conditions alongside “normal” single-entry designs.

This double-entry design was originally used for drainage applications in mines. The heads required in these applications would have created very high axial thrusts in single-entry pump designs, placing extremely high loads on the bearings. The back-to-back impeller arrangement employed in double-entry designs not only reduces the axial thrust but also the associated bearing loads.
