Hermetically sealed Twin-Screw Pump for chemical and petrochemical sectors

Monday, June 18th, 2018 von admin

ITT Bornemann launched a new hermetically-sealed pump, named SLW, at Achema 2018 in Frankfurt, Germany. This pump serie uses a magnetic coupling for a hermetic pump drive. With the sealed fluid chamber, critical media with harmful substances are confined to the pump and not released into the environment.

  • The design allows the two screws to convey the product and transmit the torque.
  • The single-volute design is also compact and requires a small footprint for installation.
  • The product is lubricated with inboard bearings.
  • The less-wear parts design leads to low-maintenance, resulting in high MTBF.

Elbow pump made from plastic

Monday, June 18th, 2018 von admin

The use of elbow pumps is always indicated when large flow rates are to be pumped to low heads. This requires a propeller-like impeller with both axial inlet and outlet, which guides the out warding flow into a pipe bend. This geometry then allows the introduction of a long projecting pump shaft in the pipe bend up to the impeller. The bearing of the pump shaft takes place outside the pumping chamber and must be generously dimensioned in the axial direction. The adjustment of the delivery head is usually done with a belt drive between the pump shaft and motor. The new ROPP model – showcased at Achema 2018 – of the Germany based pump manufacturer Wernert is also based on this classic pump concept, but with a few additional technical features that should be of interest to the experts and pump users in the chemical industries:

Changing the rules for external gear pump operation

Tuesday, June 12th, 2018 von admin

The new Maag pump line for polymers named x6 class offers vastly improved volumetric efficiency. These pumps can operate at

  • reduced rpm,
  • shear rates and
  • temperatures,
  • and consequently reduces the residence time.

This will favorably impact production rate, polymer quality and pump lifetime, while significantly reducing energy consumption.

New 3-Inch AODD pump

Tuesday, June 12th, 2018 von admin

At Achema 2018 Aro introduced the new EXP Series three-inch non-metallic, air-operated diaphragm pump for chemical and water processing applications.

These pumps can transfer up to 20,000 liters of fluid in 30 minutes. That equates to a 47 percent increase in flow compared to the Aro two-inch pump, and a flow rate of up to 270 gallons per minute.

Low flow with high head pump applications

Friday, May 18th, 2018 von admin

Side Channel Pumps are self-priming pumps that operate in low NPSH conditions & have the ability to handle up to 50% entrained gas. These pumps run at very low flow rates, while generating medium to high differential pressures.

Side Channel Pump specialist, Sero PumpSystems, will showcase these capabilities and the operation of multifunction pumps with their Mini Pump Lab (Fig.) at 2018 Achema  trade show in Frankfurt. Sero will demonstrate an affordable, easy and effective control of side channel pumps utilizing “Industrie 4.0”, as well as duty point monitoring within the pump’s performance range.
