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.

6ʺ solids handling pump

The dry self-priming pumps of the BA series are now also available in stainless steel 316. These pumps are made for a variety of industrial applications, particularly with corrosive environments such as offshore or mining which demand high performance materials.

The stainless steel casting parts are typically available from stock for the most popular BA models. This allows the stainless steel pumps to be quickly assembled with a diesel or electric motor in a sound attenuated canopy or in an open frame.

Friday, November 13th, 2015 von admin

sulzer1The new SNS end suction single stage process pump range is designed to exceed “the highest standards of performance and reliability, and also the design requirements of the ISO5199 standard. For the pump users this means substantial savings in total life-cycle costs and a reduced environmental footprint.”
The new pump range was developed for pumping applications in the

  • pulp and paper,
  • water and wastewater,
  • chemical processing,
  • power,

CP: New magnetic drive centrifugal pump up to 750 m³/h

Tuesday, October 13th, 2015 von admin

cpThe Swiss pump manufacturer CP Pumpen AG has put a new pump size on the market. The new magnetic drive pump, MKP 250-200-315, enhances the MKP series. These pumps are – according a company’s information – “considered high-performance, energy-efficient, sturdy and very safe – regardless of which medium is pumped. CP’s development team was able to implement all of these product properties in the new MKP 250-200-315.”

“The demand for pumps with a large flow volume had increased in the past. With a volume of up to 750 m3/h, the new MKP is complementing our series with a size that is important for the market”, says Heinz Mathys, Marketing & Sales Director and member of the CP Management Team.

KSB: New mag-drive pump for process engineering applications

Monday, May 26th, 2014 von admin

131202_Magnochem_04 (2)KSB launch the latest generation of its Magnochem mag-drive pumps recently.

Available in 52 sizes, the new series is primarily characterised by high outputs per size ensuring extremely low energy consumption. All pump characteristics conform to the ISO 2858/EN 22 858/ISO 5199 standards.  The pumps’ engineers have paid particular attention to the design of the magnetic coupling and the routing of circulation, cooling and lubricating flows. This allows the operator to choose between four operating modes ranging from a simple internal circulation to a so-called dead-end configuration with an auxiliary hydraulic system. As an option, an external heat exchanger can be installed. This means that the pump set can be optimised for the pumping of polymerising, coagulating and crystallising as well as low-boiling fluids.

Positive displacement pumps for CO2-extraction

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012 von admin

High pressure pump unit for liquid CO2

In the extraction of active and valuable substances, aromatic and flavouring substances, the food and pharmaceutical industry is forced to make high demands concerning quality and economy of the extraction process. The CO2-method is therefore preferably used in the extraction of primary vegetable products. The optimal sequence of the process depends on the quality and the controllability of process data in the high pressure section. Efficient industrial utilization of this method requires high reliability and functionality of the most important technical system components. The pumps for increasing the pressure of the liquid CO2 therefore play a key role in the process, because these pumps can be reliably adapted to the CO2-conditions.

Wilo: High-pressure centrifugal pump with IE4 motor technology

Friday, February 3rd, 2012 von admin

The Helix Excel series is driven by EC motors with extremely low current consumption. These centrifugal pumps achieve motor efficiency values according to the manufacturer’s figures that even outclass the limit of the upcoming efficiency class IE4 (acc. to IEC TS 60034-31 Ed.1). As a result, all the future specifications of the new EU Regulation that came into force on 16 June 2011 under the auspices of the European Ecodesign Directive on the energy efficiency of electric motors are far outclassed.

The strictness of demands imposed by legislators and operators on plants and systems employed in the process engineering industry in general and in aseptic process engineering in particular, continue to intensify. Whilst terms such as reliability, availability, life cycle costs, or diagnostic capabilities were used when it came to the characterisation of process pumps previously, cost and energy-efficiency are nowadays increasingly regarded as priority factors.
