OPW: New Dry Disconnect Couplings

Wednesday, July 19th, 2017 von admin

This range of dry disconnect couplings, named Twist-Lok, has been specifically designed to be fully interchangeable with other dry disconnect couplers. The Twist-Lok has also been manufactured in accordance with the Nato Stanag 3756 standard, and features 316 stainless-steel construction and an integral heavy-duty swivel to aid connection and minimize hose wear. In addition, this new coupler is designed with safety features for the operator, such as the ability to be fully interlocked when connected, while it includes a locking mechanism in the open position. Product selectivity is also available via mechanical keying to minimize risk of cross contamination.

Wilden: New Diaphragms for Industrial Applications

Monday, May 22nd, 2017 von admin

The new Chem-Fuse diaphragms are specifically designed for industrial applications. The Chem-Fuse diaphragm technology eliminates the potential leak point at the outer piston as well as outer piston abrasion. This is crucial for industrial applications that pump abrasive or dangerous fluids. The diaphragm design also offers easy cleanability for faster changeovers between products. These features allow Chem-Fuse diaphragms to enhance productivity, reliability and safety.

An additional benefit of Chem-Fuse diaphragms compared to other reduced-stroke integral piston diaphragms is the use of a large integral piston and full-stroke shaft that provides greater efficiency. This design allows Chem-Fuse diaphragms to provide up to 100 % increased flow and suction lift compared to other diaphragms.

Inpro: Bearing Isolator for Pumps

Tuesday, March 7th, 2017 von admin

The Bearing Isolator extends bearing life by increasing protection against contamination ingress and lubrication loss. The original Bearing Isolator, a simple two-piece design, consisted of a rotor and stator interface to keep contaminants from entering the bearing housing. Now, the next generation of Bearing Isolators has been presented.

The VB45-S Bearing Isolator utilizes a patented XX Interface coupled with an enlarged contamination chamber to achieve an IP66 rating, the standard for ingress protection against both harmful dust particulates and powerful water jets from all directions. For superior protection against lubrication loss, the VB45-S utilizes an enlarged D-Groove to capture oil and return it back to the bearing housing or a grease band to block grease from traveling down the shaft and escaping from the bearing housing.

Wilden: Pure-Fuse diaphragms for hygienic applications

Tuesday, March 1st, 2016 von admin

Wilden_Pure-Fuse-DiaphragmPure-Fuse diaphragm technology incorporates a one-piece design that eliminates product-trap areas between the outer piston and diaphragm that can harbor bacteria, a critical consideration for hygienic applications. This patented design also provides an unbroken fluid-contact surface for CIP capability and reduced contamination risks. Pure-Fuse combines food-grade plastics and elastomers with a stainless-steel core using no adhesives or nylon fabric that can contaminate process fluids in the event of a breech. In addition, by eliminating the outer piston Pure-Fuse diaphragms experience reduced abrasion, which results in longer diaphragm life.

Durit: Increasing wear protection, reducing maintenance costs

Thursday, June 25th, 2015 von admin

DuritImage_2015_04Pumping of abrasive slurry or chemical reagents demand for maximum efficiency and work pace increasing wear of the applied components and thus all associated maintenance costs in pump technology as well. More and more frequently, seal and packing rings of pumps are made of ttungsten carbide – a sinter material. Additional fields of application for tungsten carbide components in pump engineering include

  • rotors,
  • control elements,
  • bearing sleeves,
  • plain bearings,
  • and hubs,

which are exposed to abrasive media.

KSB: Mobile app brings Industry 4.0 to all pumps

Friday, May 15th, 2015 von admin

KSB_Sonolyzer_001The KSB Sonolyzer app is based on an algorithm that has been integrated in PumpMeter units for five years now, of which well over 30,000 have already been sold.
The smartphone-based application does not require knowledge of the individual characteristic curve or any additional technical data of the pump set to be measured, however, and can also be used with pumps from other manufacturers. Users can utilise the app to determine the load at which each centrifugal pump driven by a fixed-speed asynchronous motor is being operated. The following data must be entered for this purpose: the motor rating, the rated motor speed, the head and the flow rate of the pump. This information can be read from the name plate affixed to every pump.

Colfax/Allweiler: Intelligent pump monitoring

Monday, February 9th, 2015 von admin

!cid_BC04ED4BA47951C436EB@TENNCOMSINAIN-1000 is a platform, developed specifically for Allweiler pumps that are used in operationally-critical and environmentally-sensitive applications. IN-1000 improves safety while reducing operating costs. The core of the system is a software program developed by Allweiler.
The new Smart Platform can be used in straightforward condition monitoring to complex monitoring activities. This includes operational monitoring of several pumps for simultaneous fulfillment of safety and operating-cost requirements. Examples include monitoring of pressure, temperature, leaks, and vibrations. The system may also be expanded with standard industrial sensors.

Wilden: 76 mm (3”) Full-Stroke Integral Piston Diaphragm

Monday, February 2nd, 2015 von admin

Wilden_FSIP_DiaphragmsThe new 76 mm (3”) Full-Stroke Integral Piston Diaphragm (FSIPD) is made for use in Wilden’s Saniflo FDA pumps, as well as its Original, Advanced and Advanced FIT series of air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pumps. These diaphragms are well suited for hygienic applications because they are constructed of food-grade Santoprene™, and the integral piston is completely encapsulated within the TPE material, meaning there is no outer piston that can trap fluid and particles.

The result is a durable, highly cleanable diaphragm assembly that features a large integral piston and a full-stroke shaft that enables it to maintain the same stroke length as conventional Wilden diaphragms. The diaphragm’s full-stroke design increases product displacement per stroke, which translates into improved suction lift, greater flow rates and higher efficiencies than experienced when using pumps that operate with reduced stroke diaphragms.

Waukesha: Tilt pad thrust bearings for up to 300 °C

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014 von admin

WB_HidraxHTThe new Hidrax™ HT thrust bearings are developed for high-temperature applications in electric submersible pumps. These pad bearings can sustain unit loads of 8 MPa (1160 psi) at oil bath temperatures up to 300°C (572°F).

Technological advances in steam-assisted gravity drainage are increasing operating temperatures and placing increased demands on the thrust bearings located in the motor seal/protector section of the electric submersible pumps string.
