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.

New metering pumps for chemical and waste water applications

Thursday, May 24th, 2018 von admin

The PD Series of LMI helps users simplify selection, configuration and operation. The intuitive user interface makes it easy for operators to examine capacity settings and set flow rates to a desired output. These features improve safety and give operators confidence that the pumps are working as configured. New alarm indicators for tank levels are brightly displayed on a large color display.

The new pumps feature improved hardware, a new graphical user interface and external control inputs. Enhanced software facilitates new calibration assist capabilities, plus new functionality to log pump strokes, estimated volume and power cycles.

Suspended pumps with hydraulic system of standardised chemical pumps

Friday, May 18th, 2018 von admin

The Estigia type series extends KSB product portfolio for the chemical and petrochemical industries and other applications. It will be showcased at Achema 2018 trade fair in Frankfurt.

The low-pressure suspended pumps are designed for vertical wet installation in a closed tank under atmospheric pressure. For the installation depth, various lengths ranging from a minimum of 852 mm to a maximum of 6402 mm are available and three discharge pipe diameters can be selected for each pump size.

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.

Centrifugal pump with smaller footprint

Thursday, May 17th, 2018 von admin

A next-generation redesign of the Allmarine MA-S and MA-C series from Allweiler now provides more vertical installation options for centrifugal pumps with axial inlets in marine and general service applications.

The Allmarine MA-S with spacer coupling and the MA-C, a closed coupled version, not only consume a smaller footprint but also offer a special foot design to help assure stability of the pump in heavy seagoing conditions. A shorter, lighter design modifies the suction flange with integrated fixing holes for pedestal mounting of the foot to the ship foundation.

New range of sewage grinders

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018 von admin

The ever-growing rag content in today’s wastewater means that even the best pumps may not be enough. When it comes to critical pumping stations, pump users may need more. Thanks to the acquisition of JWC Environmental, Sulzer now also offers a comprehensive range of powerful sewage grinders – the Muffin Monster and the Channel Monster.

These machines will be presented on Ifat show in Munich next week together with the pump technology.

Smart pumps and predictive analytics gain traction

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018 von admin

Frost & Sullivan’s recent analysis, Global Pumps Market in the Oil and Gas Industry, Forecast to 2024, finds that there has been a concentrated focus on operational expenditure (OPEX) in the oil & gas industry following the oil price plunge in 2016. Upstream companies are increasingly acknowledging digitization as an important enabler of cost savings and profitability, and are therefore gravitating toward tools such as smart pumps. Among the many new-generation pumps in the market, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)-enabled and energy-efficient pumps with demonstrable return on investment (RoI) are expected to experience the highest demand.

High-speed metering gear pumps for complex applications

Friday, May 4th, 2018 von admin

Oerlikon Barmag pumps are used in processes at the chemicals, plastics, paints and lacquers industries as well as in PUR applications. One of the biggest challenges is metering poorly-lubricating media. The pump manufacturer wil show at Achema in Frankfurt the GM and GA ranges an a high-speed pump with sealed product space.

The main advantage of the high-speed pump is the sealed product space. The space within the pump that comes into contact with the media is therefore limited to the area around the gears. The external, ball-bearing support points in the high-speed pump are externally lubricated, hence ensuring that the product to be metered does not cause damage as a result of poor lubrication.
