Indar: Large submersible motor pump sets for Las Vegas

Monday, October 16th, 2017 von admin

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.

Leybold: Dry, flexible and air-cooled fore vacuum pump

Monday, October 9th, 2017 von admin

The Scollvac plus is an oil-free, dry running fore vacuum pump developed for a variety of applications: whether in the laboratory, in large research facilities, as a backing pump for turbomolecular and cryopump systems, or in vacuum ovens.

The product family is available in four versions with the pump speed stages 7, 10, 15 and 18 m³ / h. In the single-phase variant, it has a universal voltage drive for a constant performance worldwide, while the three-phase electronic-free variant is intended for areas with radiation. An integrated gas ballast valve also allows the pumping of condensable vapors.


Wilden: Bolt-to-bolt and pipe-to-pipe metal pumps

Wednesday, October 4th, 2017 von admin

The FIT pumps have been designed to be direct replacements for existing Wilden clamped pumps, bolted pumps and competitive models. For simplicity of installation, direct replacement means that FIT pumps fit bolt-to-bolt and pipe-to-pipe in existing fluid-handling piping systems. This makes the FIT pump an easy way to enhance and upgrade existing pump performance with superior bolted product containment.

The FIT pumps are shear sensitive and intrinsically safe with self-priming and dry-run capabilities, and offer a long MTBR, anti-freezing and increased on/off reliability.

ProMinent: Metering pumps optimise cathode materials for lithium batteries

Thursday, September 28th, 2017 von admin

The most important storage materials for lithium ion batteries are lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxides, or NCM for short. Various manufacturers in China have specialised in the production of the ternary precursors needed for this. Their appearance, particle size, size distribution, declared purity, beat density and many other characteristics are important to determining the properties of the sintered cathode end product. The manufacturers needed to find reliable and accurate metering pumps and systems that were able to meet the stringent quality requirements of manufacturing ternary precursors.

Andritz: Irrigation pumps to India

Friday, September 15th, 2017 von admin

Andritz has received an order from Megha Engineering & Infrastructures Ltd. (MEIL), Hyderabad, India, to equip three pumping stations with a total of 27 vertical volute pumps near the village of Kaleshwaram in the Indian state of Telangana. The order value is more than 60 million euros. Start-up is scheduled for June 2018.

One pumping station conveys 660 m³ of water per second from the Pranahita River and then through other pumping stations into a reservoir. This reservoir will ensure a sustainable supply of water for agricultural irrigation.
