KSB: Pumps for Vietnamese power plant

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016 von admin

CHTD 7/7, 997095377/800, Auftrag BARH Block II, RohrleitungsfotoKSB has been contracted to supply 22 power station pumps for the new Vietnamese Long Phu-1 power plant. The plant’s two 600 MW units are currently being built by a Russian engineering contractor. The complex is situated 20 kilometres east of Soc Trang city, on the right bank of the Hau River.

Included in the order are six boiler feed pump sets. The main and associated booster pumps are driven by 15,200 kW high-voltage electric motors. A geared variable speed coupling installed between the main pump and the motor varies the speed to achieve different operating parameters. Each pump set has been designed for a maximum flow rate of 1,200 m³/h and a head of 4,400 m. The boiler feed water temperature is expected to be 175 °C. To reduce energy consumption, the seven-stage pumps are equipped with optimised hydraulic systems which have proven their quality many times over.

Gea launches its new Hilge Hygia hygienic pump range

Wednesday, November 9th, 2016 von admin

11_2016-11-08_gea-hilge-hygiaThe new Gea Hilge Hygia hygienic pump range made its first public appearance at the trade fair BrauBeviale 2016 in Nuremberg (Germany). It combines the characteristics of the single-stage centrifugal pumps Hilge Euro-Hygia and Hilge F&B-Hygia in one product line, and will open advantages for pump users in maintenance, service, and spare parts stocking.

The new Gea Hilge Hygia range is part of the Gea Varipump line. The pumps are suitable for a wide range of operating points and tailored to the customer’s individual requirements. They stand out for their excellent surface finish and the complete absence of pores in the product contact area. Thus, they meet the high hygiene standards of the beverage, food and pharmaceutical industries.

Pentair launches latest generation hygienic centrifugal pump

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016 von admin

pentair-sp-hygienische-kreiselpumpeDesigned for continuous operation on thin liquids with a viscosity up to 500 mPa s, the new generation pumps are suitable for process and CIP/SIP applications. They offer a very gentle and steady product treatment, which makes them an ideal solution also for sensitive product applications like milk and cream products or yeast. The pumps can handle flow rates up to 160 m³/h and pump heads up to 75 mWc.

KSB: New in-line pumps for building services

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016 von admin

Etaline LThe new Etaline L are small close-coupled pumps in in-line design. They are available in 12 hydraulic sizes with motors from 0.12 to 3.0 kW. The pump series covers flow rates of up to 95 m³/h and discharge heads of up to 21 metres.

The cast casings and the mechanical seals are designed for operating pressures of up to 10 bar. The connections at the suction nozzle and discharge nozzle can be either flanged or threaded, depending on the size. A confined O-ring reliably seals the casing, also in fluctuating operating conditions.

Viscotec: Micro-dosing quantities down to 0.005 ml per shot

The less the amount of material to be mixed, the greater the challenge for the dosing system: Due to the World’s increasing miniaturisation in areas such as electronics and the associated high demand for ever smaller and more precise dosing, preeflow has developed the eco-DUO330. This system provides the answer to numerous questions from application engineers, material manufacturers, plant engineers and product developers. Be it in medical technology, optics and photonics, the manufacture of electronic components or in the field of biochemistry and the production of semi-conductors.

Adherence to the exact mixing ratios of the 2 component materials and its precise coverage can greatly influence the processes and applications from time to time. Even small deviations can negatively affect the desired results. Compounds harden only partially, adhesive bonds do not reach their load limit and, in the worst case, chemical reactions from the materials could have an unforeseeable impact on the user.

With the newly developed eco-DUO330, dosing quantities of 0.005 ml (per shot) is achievable. Irrespective of temperature, time, pressure and viscosity – dosed as a dot or bead. Therefore, the smallest quantities can be created at that very moment. The microprocessor-controlled system creates a dosing accuracy of ± 1 % and repeatability of over 99 %. And this whole process is reliable and reproducible.

Grundfos: How is the pump doing?

Tuesday, October 4th, 2016 von admin

grundfos_pressebild_grmWells, waste water treatment plants, water reservoirs, elevated tanks, water distribution networks, collection channels, rainwater retention basins, waste water treatment plants – the water industry operates a complex network infrastructure for water supply and waster water disposal.

The high fixed costs of these infrastructures force those responsible to an intensified view of the variable costs. This can only be done by the energy efficient operation of all technical units, in particular the pump system. The basis for this is the transparency by the recording and analysis of the relevant energy data. However, pumps in small and medium-sized water treatment and sewage treatment plants generally do not operate in the view of a technician. And the distance to a central control panel makes the connection of a cable impossible from the aspect of costs.

Neptune: Mechanically Actuated Diaphragm Metering Pump

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016 von admin

neptune_mp7000The Neptune Series MP7000 has been engineered from the ground up to be more robust and durable than similar mechanical diaphragm pump designs. The Series MP7000 pump incorporates the ruggedness of a hydraulic diaphragm metering pump, eliminates the need for intermediate fluid or hydraulic oil to actuate the diaphragm and reduces the potential for gearbox oil to contaminate the process. Series MP7000 pumps also feature a finned gearbox that dissipates the heat created during normal operation more readily than other designs, oversized check valves that improve performance and minimize friction losses, and rugged bronze gears for quite-running and long service life. Additionally, the straight-through flow design of the Series MP7000 liquid end and the elimination of the contour plate results in improved flow characteristics, making the pump the ideal solution for pumping difficult chemicals such as viscous fluids, shear-sensitive fluids and fluids with suspended solids.

Sulzer Extends the High-Efficiency Water Pump Range

Friday, September 23rd, 2016 von admin

smd_small_fullSulzer introduces an extension to the SMD axially split pump range towards lower flows and implements a higher level of standardization for cost-effective solutions and short delivery times. The SMD pump range is developed for a wide range of high-volume flow applications where raw, clean, sea, or brackish water is pumped. Such applications are water abstraction, water transport, desalination, water treatment, supply, and distribution. The pumps can also be used for firefighting, drainage, or distribution of heating and cooling media in residential and industrial systems.
