Grundfos: Direct Sensors – the sense organs of the pump

Saturday, August 22nd, 2015 von admin

grundfos DirectYou can only change what is accessible by measurement – whoever wants to control a process flow of a pump needs reliable current data on the one hand, and on the other, possible intelligent linking and interpretation of this data: Sensors deliver data, microchips have stored software to interpret this and actuators implement the commands. To also offer technical benchmarks, the pump manufacturer Grundfos maintains well-equipped own research and development departments, finance and personnel dealing with motors, frequency converters, sensors, microchips and their programming.

The ‘Direct Sensor’ development is a micro-mechanical semiconductor sensor (MEMS, Micro-Electro-Mechanical System), which is produced in its own wafer fabrication facility of purity grade 10.

Positive displacement pumps for CO2-extraction

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.

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.
