Sulzer is optimizing pump reliability and performance

Thursday, September 20th, 2018 von admin

The offshore industry faces two main challenges: maximizing production within the limits of the reservoir, and minimizing operational costs while maintaining the safety of the platform. Pumps form one of the main groups of equipment that influence the outcome of both challenges and they require expert knowledge to ensure continued reliability and performance.

Murray Wilson, Sulzer UK argues that in each case, industry engineering expertise and commercial innovation are required to deliver these goals. Furthermore, the capital expenditure to improve reliability is most often far outweighed by the costs incurred by an unexpected failure and the subsequent costs of lost production. By taking a proactive approach and involving an expert maintenance provider, platform operators can deliver significant benefits to the business in the long term.

Augmented reality supports pump and valve service

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018 von admin

At this year’s Achema, KSB Service GmbH is, for the first time, presenting its new service concept based on augmented reality. It is all about working with data glasses linked with the Internet, or with a smartphone app. Via these devices users or technicians are guided during their service work by an expert per video and audio. The experts, looking into their screen at their usual service workplace, can assess the situation through the eyes of the person present at the site.

This helps instruct technicians who are not specialised in pumps, for example, to carry out common maintenance measures, step by step. Further, the data glasses can be used to transmit exploded views or screenshots that can then be viewed in the corresponding field.

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.

Pump field services

Friday, February 2nd, 2018 von admin

Large pumps, such as those operated in the

  • oil and gas,
  • power generation and
  • water industries

perform a crucial role and represent a significant investment by the owner. Safeguarding these assets and maintaining efficiency and reliability are vital for the continued productivity of the application. Very often, when it comes to maintenance, the choice is between the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) or an independent service provider (ISP), but John Murray describes here that it is possible to have the best of both worlds.

Technical Paper: Pump refurbishment package focuses on energy efficiency

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017 von admin

A two-stage horizontal split-case pump, with Vesconite inter stage centre bushing

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.
