Sulzer introduces an extension to the SMD axially split pump range towards lower flows and implements a higher level of standardization for cost-effective solutions and short delivery times. The SMD pump range is developed for a wide range of high-volume flow applications where raw, clean, sea, or brackish water is pumped. Such applications are water abstraction, water transport, desalination, water treatment, supply, and distribution. The pumps can also be used for firefighting, drainage, or distribution of heating and cooling media in residential and industrial systems.

The Sundyne LMV-803Lr is an API 610 compliant pump available in either OH3 or OH5 motor mounting configuration that provides ultra-low NPSHr performance – approximately 5 ft (1.5 m), across the entire performance range – for flows to 800 GPM (180 m³ / hr) and heads to 1,000 ft (305 m).
The ultra-low NPSHr allows the pump to be installed at grade level, eliminating the expense of installation in a pit and performing maintenance in a confined space. The vertical design is ideal for use in refineries, NGL, petrochemical and chemical plants, as well as handling light hydrocarbon handling services, such as bottom pumps for de-ethanizers.
Sero PumpSystems GmbH, Germany-based manufacturer of side channel pumps has expanded its international presence with a new subsidiary in Singapore: Sero Pump Systems Pte. Ltd. The office is led by Desmond Wong Kin Leong who was appointed as the Regional Manager.
“The new subsidiary will be the hub to strengthen Sero’s operations in Asia and will play a key role in our expansion plans for this region”, Managing Director, Beate Zientek-Strietz explains this milestone. “It will bring us closer to our current and prospective customers and partners and enable us to better serve and support them, providing dedicated services, custom engineered solutions, technical advice and training seminars.”
Actually KSB is launching the latest generation of its Etanorm series, which has been produced non-stop since 1936. The type series of the new generation comprises 43 pump sizes, which can be driven by either 2-pole or 4-pole motors. The selection chart has been extended by additional pump sizes, so that sizes can be selected even closer to the best efficiency point. The Eta type series is the global best-seller among standardised water pumps. Since 1936 more than 1.5 million Eta pumps have been produced worldwide.
The need for hygienic pumps is widespread across industries such as dairy, food, beverage, pharmaceutical, biotech and cosmetics. The range of applications where they are used is diverse and, like other pump requirements, reliability is a major consideration to maximise productivity. Through its Waukesha Cherry-Burrell, APV and Johnson Pump brands, SPX Flow Technology has one of the widest ranges of pumps available in hygienic designs, developed from close partnership with our customers and an intense understanding of the applications in the industries.
Randal Ferman, PE, Consulting Engineer, Vice President of ekwestrel corp., has more than 35 years’ experience in the pump industry.
In this webinar he gives an overview in selecting pumps for critical processes:
A hermetically sealed twin- screw pump expands the comprehensive product program from Bornemann. This is a pump with contactless rotating elements and media-lubricated bearings, which can also be used with media that are low-lubricating. The pump is hermetically sealed by a magnetic coupling. As such, the advantages that speak in favour of using a “seal-free” pump can now be combined with the advantages of the proven Bornemann 2-spindle technology. A version is also optionally available with mechanical seal, for extreme application conditions.
At this year’s ACHEMA (18 to 22 June 2012) in Frankfurt, KSB will debut the latest generation of its standardised chemical pumps. The new MegaCPK type series distinguishes itself above all by a high output per size and hence very low energy consumption. It is an advanced version of the internationally successful CPK, CPKN and Megachem type series.
