Flotronic: The One-Nut Design for hygienic AODD

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017 von admin

UK specialist pump manufacturer Flotronic Pumps Limited was founded by Lew Norris in 1981. The engineering design consultancy ‘Norris Brothers’ had been involved in the design of  specialist pumps since 1952.  Lew Norris’ new company pioneered the air-operated, double-diaphragm ‘One-Nut’ pump. Flotronic’s ‘One-Nut’ design allows quick pump disassembly for inspection, cleaning and maintenance – delivering a massive benefit for pump users in terms of reduced down-time, particularly as the pump can be inspected or maintained in line without disconnection of pipework. Flotronic remains the only British-owned specialist manufacturer of air-operated, double-diaphragm pumps in the UK.

Hermetic: 12-stage canned motor pumps for ethane cracker plant

Monday, June 6th, 2016 von admin

IMG_1941The actually supplied two canned motor pumps, with “tandem” design, convey the medium [C3 fraction with propylene as main constituent] at a temperature of 22 °C. The differential head [H] is 379 m at a flow rate [Q] of 7.8 m³/h. The pump units are designed for a nominal pressure of 40 bar and have temperature- and level-monitoring features. For online monitoring of the hydraulic axial bearing, a rotor-position monitoring feature is also provided.

The special tandem design of the multistage pumps results in minimal shaft deflection and load relief at the slide bearings. The “ZART” (Zero Axial and Radial Thrust) technology ensures a contact- and wear-free running of the rotor unit.
