Monday, September 3rd, 2018 von admin

Copyright © BBT SE

The Brenner Base Tunnel through the Alps, destined to become the longest underground railway connection in the world at a planned length of 64 kilometers, is being excavated using tunnel boring machines, or TBMs made by Herrenknecht. The TBMs contain nearly every type of pump manufactured by Allweiler, a Circor brand;

  • Filter oil and cooling system pumps
  • Grout pumps for ring-gap mortar injection
  • Proportioning pumps with quench`
  • Water pumps

Technical Paper: API 676 compliance of progressive cavity pumps

Friday, August 3rd, 2018 von admin

Owing to their operating principle and their roots in waste water treatment, Progressive Cavity Pumps (PCP) come with typical deviations against petrochemical standard API 676. Some of these deviations are inevitable, others can be healed. It is a preservative headache and topic of discussion for project engineers to understand and identify which of these deviations are relevant, critical or acceptable for their project.

Downhole progressing cavity pump with submersible drive

Thursday, July 12th, 2018 von admin

A German energy supplier had initially used a geological horizon for gas storage, but then decided to extract crude oil from the same deposit. Therefore, a suitable extraction system had to be acquired for transporting the multi-phase mixture with a high gas content to the surface from 1,200 m below. Due to the extreme conditions, a special pump technology was required:

Netzsch developed a progressing cavity pump system with submersible drive. As all moving parts are positioned deep down in the well, there is also no risk of environmental impact from leaks at the surface. (more…)

Triple the service life by a stator adjustment unit

Thursday, April 26th, 2018 von admin

The xLC unit was added to the product portfolio of the Nemo progressing cavity pump from Netzsch. This triples the service life of the pump, particularly when conveying difficult, abrasive media. When wear occurs in the rotor-stator system, this new unit allows the performance of the pump to be re-established by adjusting the preload between the conveyor elements.

Maintenance-in-place-solution for progressing cavity pumps

Monday, February 19th, 2018 von admin

Progressing cavity pumps from Allweiler can be delivered with an Optifix option. The pump can be disassembled in five steps, and eliminates the need to dismantle it from piping to change the rotor, stator, joints or shaft seal.

Designed to deliver superior speed and efficiency, Optifix’s easy exchange design is optimized for safe and streamlined inspections, parts removal and service operations. In wastewater treatment service, Optifix can reduce mean time to repair intervals by as much as 85 percent and boost pump service life by up to 500 percent when combined with patented Alldur stator solution.

Netzsch: Maintenance of progressing cavity pumps with minimum effort

Wednesday, August 19th, 2015 von admin

Explosionsbild FSIPNetzsch has developed the “Full Service in Place” (FSIP) concept for pump systems – constituting an inconspicuous but essential process element in many applications. This makes interventions in the pump equipment possible without dismantling from the piping. This approach has proven itself in practice already for several years with the Tornado T2 rotary lobe pumps, and a FSIP version of the progressing cavity pump will now be introduced as well. The new design saves time on inspection, repair and cleaning work while even reducing the required installation space.
