Flotronic: The One-Nut Design for hygienic AODD

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017 von admin

UK specialist pump manufacturer Flotronic Pumps Limited was founded by Lew Norris in 1981. The engineering design consultancy ‘Norris Brothers’ had been involved in the design of  specialist pumps since 1952.  Lew Norris’ new company pioneered the air-operated, double-diaphragm ‘One-Nut’ pump. Flotronic’s ‘One-Nut’ design allows quick pump disassembly for inspection, cleaning and maintenance – delivering a massive benefit for pump users in terms of reduced down-time, particularly as the pump can be inspected or maintained in line without disconnection of pipework. Flotronic remains the only British-owned specialist manufacturer of air-operated, double-diaphragm pumps in the UK.

Packo: Pumps for inline dispersing, mixing and homogenizing

Thursday, July 14th, 2016 von admin

shear mixing illustratie (2)The shear pumps series SFP2 and SFP3 have an innovative stator (patent pending) providing an efficiency improvement between 70 and 100 % compared to current technologies available. Moreover, one single system is sufficient for the in-line mixing, dispersing and homogenizing, as well as for pumping the final product.

Typical applications are among other things the mixing of two liquids having a large different specific gravity and/or viscosity as well as dispersing of solids in liquids.

Fristam adds double-screw technology to its pump portfolio

Thursday, May 12th, 2016 von admin

FDS_mit_FoerderschraubenThe pump casing of Fristam FDS pumps comes in three parts, consisting of an intermediate flange, the screw casing and the pump cover. This enables individual adaptation of the connections to any conceivable production system requirement. Thanks to central positioning of the gearwheels inside the bearing support area, the entire pump comes in a very compact design. Moreover, its massive shaft has reinforcements in the area of critical diameters to ensure maximum rigidity. Further stability is achieved through a combination of particular large bearings and an increased bearing distance. The result is smooth running with minimal wear.
