Vesconite: Pump refurbishment package focuses on energy efficiency

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017 von admin

An Australian company that specialises in both on-site and off-site pump refurbishment is finding that energy efficiency is an important driver in its refurbishment packages – and has included Vesconite bushings as part of its energy-reducing refurbishment package.

FITT Resources’ Daniel Hechter says that electricity costs in Australia, at 25+ AUS c/kWh, are among the highest costs globally.

As a result, when the company retrofits 30 to 35-year-old pumps, besides increasing the life of a pump, there is a focus on increasing the energy efficiency of the pump. The company’s retrofitting is programme orientated and includes a number of interventions to in-crease energy efficiency by ensuring that flow is better and that less electricity is used.

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.

Lewa: New plunger pump according to API 674

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014 von admin

QuintuplexThis new generation of pumps has splitted gear housings. This special feature significantly facilitates maintenance, permitting the use of a fully balanced crankshaft which generates less noise and vibration, thus reducing wear. The power range was also extended with two quintuplex plunger pumps.  The very short design of these plunger pumps is made possible by the special alignment of the plunger and crosshead. These pumps also have high efficiency, low energy consumption, and a long service life.

Is your electric motor trying to tell you something?

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014 von admin

PR2351_50604Plant and maintenance engineers often seem to have an intuitive nose for trouble, so are able to predict pending problems with machinery and take pre-emptive action to prevent them. It is not the result of magical powers, rather of long experience with plant and machinery. Bill Bertram of motor maker Marathon Electric explains how different motor sounds can be interpretedÖ: “If you walk around a piece of plant that is running, you will hear it making a noise. If you listen carefully you will be able to pick out individual elements within the overall sound. For instance, you may be able to hear a fan whirring, a pump thumping and a conveyor rumbling.”

KSB: Historical pumps restored at Technical University Munich

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013 von admin

KSB_TU_Muenchen_historische_Pumpen_01In June 2013, KSB Service GmbH completed the overhaul of three historical pumps and their piping systems at TUM, Munich’s technical university. The three pumps are located at the university’s hydraulic institute, where they have been used for testing as part of hydraulic engineering and water management teaching for a hundred years. The pump sets from Frankenthal pump manufacturer KSB include two double-entry pumps from 1913 and a single-stage pump from 1916.

As well as overhauling the pumps, the service specialists from KSB’s Pegnitz site also fitted new valves and replaced the old cast pipes with stainless steel piping. Since the old pumps do not feature flanges standardised to DIN ‒ the first DIN standards were released in March 1918 ‒ the piping manufacturer had to transfer the hole patterns onto the loose plate flanges of the new pipes. In the past, the two older double-entry pumps shared a 6-pole 90 kW fixed speed motor.
