Sulzer doubles capacity of high voltage testing to improve repair times

Thursday, January 11th, 2018 von admin

Performance testing of high voltage motors and generators is usually carried out to determine benchmark data following a major repair. However, increasingly, customers are requiring this information as part of a problem diagnosis or to verify performance figures for a component when its essential data has been lost. To keep up with growing demand, Sulzer has made a major investment at its Falkirk Service Center (Scotland) that will enable the test-bed load capacity to be doubled.

Until now, the Falkirk site has used a 1,250 kVA diesel generator that operates through two step-up transformers to provide 3.3 – 11 kV via high voltage switchgear to the test cell. This setup ensures a reliable power source for testing that is not affected by local demand on the power grid. The new investment will add a 2,000 kVA and a 700 kVA generator to the site that will be synchronized through a 4000A LV switchboard, as well as a new 2,500 kVA transformer, that will double the capacity of the test bed.

New inline single stage centrifugal pump range

Monday, December 18th, 2017 von admin

The new SIL pump range was developed by Sulzer to meet the process requirements in various general and industrial applications. The SIL pump range is developed for pumping mainly clean and slightly contaminated liquids, viscous liquids up to 250 cSt, and fibrous slurries up to a consistency of 1%. The hydraulic design ensures efficient pumping with a low NPSHr (net positive suction head required) across the whole pump range.

The inline design together with the monoblock construction makes the SIL pump compact, rigid and reliable. The pump is available either with an integrated motor or with a standard IEC motor. SIL pumps are easy and fast to install both in vertical and in horizontal positions, and they require only a small installation space.

Sulzer in Glasgow Sets the Standard in Maintenance and Repairs

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017 von admin

Increasing pressure to reduce costs and optimise performance is causing many industries to reassess the way in which they tackle maintenance issues. Sulzer’s Glasgow facility has been quick to expand the capabilities and expertise of its staff to ensure additional benefits for customers and help meet these demands.

Scott Tyre took on the Glasgow service centre manager’s role in early 2017, after joining Sulzer as Contracts Manager in June 2016. He comments: “The Glasgow Service Centre is continuously improving to keep pace with its customers’ demands and the staff pride themselves in delivering the best possible technical service. Our challenge is to provide expert engineering support along with concise customer communication and dialogue, 100% of the time.”

Sulzer: Key Safety Pumps for the Kilpilahti Power Plant

Thursday, May 4th, 2017 von admin

Sulzer has secured two pump orders from Técnicas Reunidas for the Kilpilahti combined heat and power plant in Porvoo, Finland. The plant is currently owned by Neste, Veolia, and Borealis. The orders comprise 12 feedwater pumps and 11 Ahlstar pumps, which will be manufactured by Sulzer in Germany and Finland respectively.

Técnicas Reunidas is acting as an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contractor for the construction of the Kilpilahti project. Three new steam generators with a capacity of 450MW of thermal heat and a power output of around 30MWwill be installed. The power plant will comply with the latest environmental regulations, including the European Commission’s Industrial Emissions Directive (IED).

Sulzer: Repair of variable speed drives reduces costs and downtime

Thursday, April 20th, 2017 von admin

As the legislation surrounding the efficiency of electric motors continues to tighten, the volume of variable speed drives (VSDs) in service increases. Often specified by the motor manufacturer as part of the original installation – or retrofitted to improve efficiency – the drive contains both hardware and software that is designed to work with a motor in a specific application. So, what happens if the drive ceases to operate? Brian Park, Regional Sales Manager for Scotland at Sulzer, looks at the advancing technology and the maintenance processes that need to keep pace.
