Sulzer: Facilities management as an overall solution

Friday, October 13th, 2017 von admin

As a leading global supplier of repair solutions, Sulzer has extensive experience of delivering cost effective repairs and improvements for electric motors and rotating equipment such as air handling units (AHUs). As a pump manufacturer, the company also has the capabilities to design, manufacture and repair all makes and sizes of pump.

Every facilities management strategy will have unique aspects to it that require the project manager to collate a specific group of skills in order to deliver an effective solution. Depending on the customer, these can include central utilities, pumping systems, energy management as well as mechanical and electrical engineering support.

Siemens: All-steel multi-disk couplings acc. API and Atex

Friday, June 23rd, 2017 von admin

Siemens presented an additional series in the range of torsionally rigid all-steel disc couplings: the new N-Arpex coupling with improved performance characteristics. An optimized disc pack and a revised component design facilitate the transmission of higher torques and speeds as well as a higher bore capacity with standard hubs. All-steel couplings can be used in all applications that require reliable torque transmission in set-ups with shaft displacement.

Sulzer: Repair of variable speed drives reduces costs and downtime

Thursday, April 20th, 2017 von admin

As the legislation surrounding the efficiency of electric motors continues to tighten, the volume of variable speed drives (VSDs) in service increases. Often specified by the motor manufacturer as part of the original installation – or retrofitted to improve efficiency – the drive contains both hardware and software that is designed to work with a motor in a specific application. So, what happens if the drive ceases to operate? Brian Park, Regional Sales Manager for Scotland at Sulzer, looks at the advancing technology and the maintenance processes that need to keep pace.

KSB: New drives reduce variant complexity of pumps

Thursday, April 6th, 2017 von admin

At this year’s Hannover Messe KSB is presenting a new, smart drive solution for fixed speed pumps. With the new MyFlow Drive, which is fully compatible with Industry 4.0, the fixed speed levels at the motor can be set to individual requirements. This provides the user with planning reliability as the flow rate of the pumps can be increased or decreased quickly and easily.

Siemens: Digitalization package for next motor generation

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017 von admin

With the latest generation of its Simotics SD (Severe Duty) motors, Siemens is offering a digitalization package to address the future challenges facing the world of drive technology. The new design is based on a robust, compact gray cast iron lowvoltage motor with high power density. Its future-oriented energy efficiency concept is designed to provide a competitive boost to customers and users. Their extreme resistance makes the Simotics SD low-voltage motors suitable for applications in harsh environmental conditions involving exposure to dust, vibrations or aggressive atmospheres.These benefits make the motors ideal for applications in the petrochemical and general process industries.

KSB motors IE5 classified

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017 von admin

The KSB SuPremE motor made by the Frankenthal pump manufacturer KSB has been IE5 classified since January 2017. The motor meets the requirements of IE5 (IEC/TS 60034-30-2), the highest of energy efficiency classes for variable speed electric motors; compared with IE4, motor losses are reduced by a further 20 percent.

Unlike conventional synchronous motors this drive is made without any magnetic materials such as rare earths that are categorised as critical raw materials since their extraction causes severe environmental impacts in their countries of origin.

Predictive Maintenance for Process Control

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016 von admin

Manufacturing, utilities, and oil & gas companies have been gathering troves of raw data since well before the Internet of Things was a thing. For decades, machines like pumps have collected big analog data about voltage, motion, sound, acceleration, vibration, and more at the farthest reaches of the network. But industries have never had the compute power and technology to process that data and turn it into real-time, data-driven decisions at the “edge” (on premise, away from the data center and closer to the “things”) —until now.

An example of predictive and preventative maintenance solutions that can be delivered in the real world using NI’s PXI and sensors on a Flowserve industrial pump can be found here.

Siemens: Motors for high thrust pump applications in harsh environments

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016 von admin

Siemens hat sein umfangreiches Portfolio von Simotics-Niederspannungsmotoren nach Nema um vertikale Vollwellenmotoren (VSS) – Reihe LP100 – in der Effizienzklasse Nema Premium erweitert. Expanding its extensive range of Simotics low-voltage Nema motors, Siemens adds in-line, vertical solid shaft (VSS) motors to its portfolio – the LP100 series – in the Nema Premium efficiency class.

Expanding its extensive range of Simotics low-voltage Nema motors, Siemens adds in-line, vertical solid shaft (VSS) motors to its portfolio – the LP100 series – in the Nema Premium efficiency class. They have been specifically designed to address hight thrust pump applications and now have an extra high thrust capability allowing them to be teamed up with many pump types. The motors comply with the new Nema Premium efficiency class, the highest efficiency class required today for Nema low-voltage induction motors in the US. A range of special options is available for the series so that these motors comply with or exceed the most stringent industrial standards and can be used to address a wide range of applications.
