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.

Lewa: Safe pumping of sour crude oil

Thursday, May 7th, 2015 von admin

SauerölpumpeCritical applications of conveying mixtures of acidic hydrocarbon/water to the washing system are a challenge for any pump manufacturer. This was also the case in one recent project Lewa handled in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. Lewa have designed and supplied 16 pumps to a major construction company in Abu Dhabi specifically designed to handle this critical application. Two processes required to pump

  • liquid hydrocarbons from the flare knock-out drum or the blow-down drum respectively and
  • convey the acidic hydrocarbon/water mixture back into the oil line to the washing system

Since the differences in these two processes are only minor, it was possible to supply 16 mechanically identical pumps of the Ecoflow series, driven by 55 kW electric motors.

Wilden: Stainless steel AODD pump for higher corrosion resistance

Friday, December 19th, 2014 von admin

Wilden_Advanced-FIT_PS830-SSThe new Wilden air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pump series 430 and 830 Advanced FIT is produced of 316 stainless steel for higher corrosion resistance in aggressive chemical applications. These sieries have been specifically designed to be direct replacements for existing Wilden 38 mm (1-1/2”) and 51 mm (2”) Advanced pump installations.

“FIT” means

  • bolt-to-bolt and
  • pipe-to-pipe

Rheinhütte: 85 pumps for fertiliser plant in Saudi Arabia

Thursday, October 16th, 2014 von admin

RCE_DWH_125_320_20x17Largest single order in company’s history: The Umm Wual phosphate project in northern Saudi Arabia, concerned with the conveyance of the country’s rich deposits of phosphates, is currently being implemented on behalf of Ma’aden (Saudi Arabian Mining Company). The deposits will, among other things, be processed to produce NPK and DAP fertilisers. To this end, Ma‘aden has commissioned the construction of a new plant for the production of fertilisers at the Waad Al-Shamal phosphate industrial complex. The plant will be designed and built by the Spanish industrial plant manufacturer Intecsa Ingenieria Industrial SA. Ma’aden Phosphates Company, one of the largest fertiliser producers in the world, will act as plant operator.

Up to Spring 2015, Friatec AG – Division Rheinhütte Pumpen will supply a total of 85 complete pump units for this plant.

Andritz: Dewatering flooded mine tunnels in South Africa

Thursday, July 17th, 2014 von admin

South Africa is currently dealing with the problem of acid water because underneath the old gold mining city of Johannesburg is a lake which contains heavily contaminated water, which spreads horizontally and vertically into the abandoned pits of the former gold mines.  Meanwhile, the water line has reached a critically high level, as determined by the specialists from Andritz Ritz, which was given the first order to drain the mine water in 2010. The execution of the project was delayed by four years however, and it was only in spring 2014 that two powerful submersible motor pumps were installed in the middle of Johannesburg city centre, in the so-called “Central Basin”, with each pump capable of bringing 1,500 m³/h of water to the surface.

Achema: Pumps made of fiberglass

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012 von admin

This single stage centrifugal pump Saturn is made of FRP (thermosetting resins reinforced with fiberglass), which provide the casing with a considerable mechanical resistance comparable to metal alloy. The resin basic formula (epoxy vinyl ester) gives to the pump casing a resistance to all corrosive and abrasive acids.

Achema: Centrifugal pumps to handle dangerous chemicals

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012 von admin

Engineered for high performance and maximum flexibility, the 811 Series Centrifugal Pumps feature superior open impeller and seal chambers, which facilitate corrosive and erosive substance transport, heat regulation and routine maintenance. Its enhanced power frames and rigid base plates combine the latest technology with the highest quality construction to minimize the effects of work forces and shaft deflection optimizing cooling and simplifying the installation and maintenance process. These features enable the 811 Series to continue performing reliably long after other ANSI centrifugal pumps wear out or break down.
