New range of sewage grinders

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018 von admin

The ever-growing rag content in today’s wastewater means that even the best pumps may not be enough. When it comes to critical pumping stations, pump users may need more. Thanks to the acquisition of JWC Environmental, Sulzer now also offers a comprehensive range of powerful sewage grinders – the Muffin Monster and the Channel Monster.

These machines will be presented on Ifat show in Munich next week together with the pump technology.

Thought-through coupling solutions bring noticeable advantages

Technical paper by Jochen Pelzer

The coupling of drives with work machines like pumps, fans and compressors is simple – at least at first glance. Because, while for selection of the right coupling knowledge of torque and speed are theoretically sufficient, practice shows that plenty of experience and high-quality products increase availability and reduce service costs.

From pipe to component ready for installation

Thursday, April 12th, 2018 von admin

Individually produced, made to measure, in very small quantities or as a series – for years Butting from Knesebeck in Germany has been well known as a reliable supplier of special components ready for installation. In the course of time, countless product variations have been developed and manufactured together with the end customer – sometimes in series production.

True to the motto “more than pipes” the longitudinally welded stainless steel pipes from Bunttings in-house production usually serve as primary products for the components ready for installation. Corrosion resistant pipes, manufactured specially for the individual customer order, are used to produce these components. Thus special sizes or particular tolerances can be taken into account, such as production by internal diameter.  As part of prefabrication, laser, welding and forming technology are possible, as are cutting and surface processing by grinding and blasting, and combinations of these.

Peristaltic pumps now available with hygienic hoses

Monday, March 19th, 2018 von admin

The Mouvex Abaque Series peristaltic pumps are now available with FDA and EC 1935/2004 certified hoses. By incorporating these hygienic hoses, these pumps are now suited for the production of food and beverage products that require strict hygienic standards.

The design of Abaque pumps also eliminates product contamination since the pumped product is kept completely in the hose and is not exposed to the moving parts of the pump. Additionally, the smooth operation of these pumps allows them to handle the shear-sensitive products with delicate particles.

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.

Couplings in Pump Applications

Friday, January 26th, 2018 von admin

The Sure-Flex Plus couplings have new elastomeric sleeves providing higher performance and enhanced durability due to significant improvements in proprietary EPDM and Neoprene materials. Development testing confirmed that the new EPDM and Neoprene rubber sleeves enable a 30 % increase in the torque rating when compared to the previous generation sleeves. Sure-Flex Plus couplings provide torsional flexibility, while the 4-way flexing action absorbs virtually all types of

  • shock,
  • vibration,
  • misalignment and
  • end float.

Graphical user interface for dosing pumps

Wednesday, January 24th, 2018 von admin

The German micro-pump manufacturer HNP Mikrosysteme is introducing the mzr-Touch Control as a new possibility to control micro annular gear pumps (mzr-pumps) via a graphical user interface. The multilingual graphical user interface supplements the present control of mzr-dosing pumps via laptop or PC. The mzr-Touch Control is compatible to most mzr-pump sizes and series with low to medium power drives. This compact device controls one pump each and is easy and intuitive to handle. Dosage volumes from 0.25 µl and flow rate ranges of 1 µl/min to 288 ml/min can be indicated by the user. This system will be presented at Analytica 2018 in Munich, Hall 1, booth 409.

Monitor your pump online – at any time, at any place

Friday, December 8th, 2017 von admin

Fig. 1

The generation of maintainers who check the condition of pumps on a daily basis by listening and touching the equipment is dying out. Nevertheless, pumps must operate reliably. To solve this problem, BestSens has developed the Bearing Monitoring System, BeMoS for short (Figure 1).

BeMoS monitors roller bearings in machinery and plants from the very first second of operation. What is so special about it is the underlying technology:

Technical Paper: API-all-steel coupling with optimised performance

Friday, November 24th, 2017 von admin

Marc Egelwisse

In the Arpex all-steel multi-disk coupling the Flender GmbH, a 100 %-held Siemens subsidiary, is marketing a coupling that has proved itself over many years. Marc Egelwisse, product manager for Arpex couplings, and his team have further developed this series with a focus on three aspects:

  • increase in the specific power,
  • optimisation of the areas of application and
  • reduction of complexity of the type series.

The results show it was worth it:

  • 70 to 100 % higher torque,
  • 40 % greater angular misalignment,
  • 10 % higher maximum speed and
  • 14 instead of the 42 design variants existing hitherto.

“Because of the high torque capacity and the optimised speed and bore capacity of the new N-Arpex we are confident that we are offering what is at present the world’s best-performing coupling”, says Egelwisse.
