Pure-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.

Pumping 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
- control elements,
- bearing sleeves,
- plain bearings,
- and hubs,
which are exposed to abrasive media.
The 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.
IN-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.
The 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.
The 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.
The Smart CDR is an condition monitoring system that provides users with instant feedback on the performance of their Current Diverter Ring® (CDR) in diverting shaft currents away from bearings to ground.
At the Rotex® S-H the hubs are mechanically separated by „cracking“ on purpose. An uneven surface with a positive fit is the result making sure for an exact position of the two halves during assembly. The contoured, uneven cracked surfaces ensure an ideal centering of the hub halves. This guarantees that the hub or the connection of the two hub halves, respectively, is not weakened by the separation by cracking. The „cracked“ hub is screwed in place in block assembly and makes sure that during operation there is no negative impact on the strength of the coupling.
Vibconnect RF is a condition monitoring system for large facilities with many standard machines like pumps. Even if there is no line-of-sight between the base station and the sensor units, the wireless signals are transmitted error-free. A new firmware update elevates this wireless online condition monitoring system to a higher plane. With its wireless technology, it fits for applications, which require the wireless transfer of vibration measurement data over long distances. The new firmware update includes several powerful new features:
- Sending status and alarm emails,
- supporting Modbus TCP,
- reducing data overload,
- live visualization of measurement data and
- providing a 24V sensor unit version.
The new features are supported by the current version of the proven Omnitrend software.
The carbon-graphite components provide superior lubrication in most environments, and are ideal for pumping liquids with poor lubricating qualities, strong chemicals that attack metals, and to pump air, vacuum, combustion products and gasoline vapors. Metallized Carbon’s carbon-graphite vanes, rotors, and end plates are used in such dry running applications as automotive anti-smog pumps and gasoline vapor pick up pumps, breathable air pumps and vacuum pumps. In-liquid applications include vending machine beverage pumps, fuel and liquid chemical pumps, and medical liquid pumps.
