Optimizing critical transfer tasks

Wednesday, November 15th, 2017 von admin

Processing fish, lard and vegetable oils is the main business of Olvea Group in the small town of Fecamp, close to the English Channel in the northwest of France. These oils that were arriving at the plant were to be used for specific end products. This included the creation of cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, human food and animal feed, as well as various technical uses, such as the building of lasers and as lubricants for leather and metal work.

These processes require strict purity for the oils as they move from transport truck to storage tank to 330-gallon intermediate bulk containers (IBC) and 50-gallon drums, meaning that no cross-contamination could be tolerated. Additionally, because of the high value of the oils, any products that were left in the transport truck, storage tank or hoses after the transfer process was completed would essentially be lost during the necessary cleaning process.

Wangen: New hygienic twin screw pump

Thursday, October 19th, 2017 von admin

This new pump generation offers a spindle change without re-synchronisation of the spindle shafts. All you have to do is remove the housing and loosen the screws and the spindles can then be removed in order to replace the seal in a fast and straightforward manner, for example. Thanks to a self-centring flange casing, which is available as an option, the coupling is optimally aligned automatically. As a result, renewed alignment of the coupling with the pump, e.g. after service activities, is not required. In addition, the Twin guarantees a long service life, among other things, as a result of the further-developed, high-quality components and materials, such as the further-developed shafts.

KBL: A Step towards Food Sufficiency

Thursday, March 9th, 2017 von admin

Kirloskar Brothers Limited (KBL) has partnered for food sufficiency with the Government of Senegal, a country in Western Africa. Before 2005, Senegal’s irrigation infrastructure was under-developed. Government of Senegal was not able to meet the expected food sufficiency levels of the country because of the haphazard irrigation techniques. For achieving better means of livelihood, the Government of Senegal felt the urge to resolve the issue of unemployment among the rural youth and stop their exodus to cities.

The major challenge faced by Senegal was the need for skilled labour. In North Senegal, lack of proper irrigation equipment was identified as the foremost problem. Even though there was abundant water available in the Senegal River, there was no mode to direct it to the fields in sufficient quantities required to irrigate rice. Alongside, South Senegal was grieving over existence of excessive saline surface water for irrigation purposes. The feasible alternative was to tap ground water in order to receive a supply fit for the yield.
