Pumps for wet flue gas desulfurization

Tuesday, April 10th, 2018 von admin

A cement factory in Texas was among the first in the USA  to install wet flue gas scrubbers in order to reduce the sulfur dioxide emissions. This is a demanding application for pumps because the gypsum slurry that “scrubs” the gas is highly abrasive and corrosive.

Special pumps with housings and impellers made of mineral cast prove to be a perfect solution here.

Wet Flue Gas Desulfurization Scrubber systems are a vital component in various industries due to strict environmental regulations. First applications were coal fired power plants and waste incineration plants. Today, other industries utilize wet scrubbers in their day to day operations as well to scrub flue gas emissions from burners that utilize coal as a fuel source.

New inline single stage centrifugal pump range

Monday, December 18th, 2017 von admin

The new SIL pump range was developed by Sulzer to meet the process requirements in various general and industrial applications. The SIL pump range is developed for pumping mainly clean and slightly contaminated liquids, viscous liquids up to 250 cSt, and fibrous slurries up to a consistency of 1%. The hydraulic design ensures efficient pumping with a low NPSHr (net positive suction head required) across the whole pump range.

The inline design together with the monoblock construction makes the SIL pump compact, rigid and reliable. The pump is available either with an integrated motor or with a standard IEC motor. SIL pumps are easy and fast to install both in vertical and in horizontal positions, and they require only a small installation space.

Hot water version

The new CombiTherm Plus pump provides transfer of hot fluids without the need for additional, external cooling systems. The pump is available in two configurations suitable for the pumping of hot oil or hot water and provides an highly efficient and pumping solution. The air-cooled CombiTherm Plus pump provides transfer of hot oil or hot water in a wide range of applications including

  • injection molding,
  • chemical processing,
  • asphalt / bitumen and tar processing,
  • deep frying systems,
  • steam generators,
  • fuel heaters and
  • heat recovery systems.

The pump keeps fluid temperatures uniform to ensure processes are efficient while its design protects seal faces and bearings from the heat of the fluid; ensuring durable, low maintenance, long life operation.

KEPL commissioned its first API Turbine in Indonesia

Wednesday, October 28th, 2015 von admin

K-TUR imagePune-headquartered Kirloskar Ebara Pumps Ltd (KEPL), a joint venture of Kirloskar Brothers Ltd (KBL), has successfully commissioned its indigenously-developed first API 611 Steam Turbine ‘K-TUR’ at PT. Pemukasakti Manishindah, Indonesia. KEPL designed and developed API 611 compliant steam turbine up to a power rating of 3000 kW for the global API industry. This first “K-TUR” was supplied through ISGEC Heavy Engineering Limited, India with a rating of 380 Kw. This turbine is capable of variable speed / power operation from 30 % to 110 % of the boiler load and has been designed in a way that it has the best operational efficiencies over its designed life of 20 years. In addition to No Load Mechanical Run Testing (NLMRT) as per API 611. KEPL also tested the turbine on part load for the first time using a calibrated pump to evaluate its operational performance vis-a-vis the designed performance.
