Novozymes and Grundfos kick off collaboration for clean water

Monday, December 4th, 2017 von admin

When you combine biotech with cutting-edge water technology, you might find new solutions to some of the most pressing global issues concerning water scarcity. Thereby, you can make a direct impact on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 6, aiming at securing universal access to water and sanitation by 2030.

This is the scope, when world’s leading experts in enzymes and microorganisms, Novozymes, and Grundfos, one of the leaders in advanced pump technologies, enter an open innovation collaboration.

Energy-efficient pump systems for water supply

Friday, November 17th, 2017 von admin

With the use of the permanent magnet technology, oddesse pumps and motors factory developed an energy-efficient pumping system to support water supply companies to sustainably reduce energy consumption and thus contribute to the protection of the environment.

In the past, the efficiency of pump systems was often calculated by solely considering the efficiency of the pump. The efficiency of the motor, on the other hand, which is determined by the ratio between the electrical input and the mechanical output, has been largely ignored. However, the overall efficiency of the complete pumping system has an impact on the energy costs, which, as the decisive factor, account for more than 80% in the efficiency analysis. By optimizing the overall system, the greatest savings in electricity costs can be achieved.

Indar deliver largest submersible motor pump sets ever

Monday, October 16th, 2017 von admin

Facing the worst drought on record in the Colorado River Basin, as lake levels continue to fall, the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) is building a low lake level pumping station to ensure Las Vegas and Southern Nevada maintains access to its primary water supplies in Lake Mead. Lake Mead water levels have dropped more than 40 m (131 feet) since the drought began in 2000. The new pumping station will allow SNWA to pump water from Lake Mead from an elevation as low as 267 m (875 feet) above sea level into the water treatment facilities and further on to provide water to the city of Las Vegas and neighbor community area.

Andritz: 11 split-case pumps for water supply in China

Monday, November 2nd, 2015 von admin

andritzAndritz has received an order from Hohhot Water Supply to equip two pumping stations in the city of Hohhot in North China with six and five double-flow split-case pumps, respectively. Start-up is scheduled for late 2015.

The two pumping stations will deliver 200,000 m³/h of water from the Yellow River to the city of Hohhot, the capital of the Inner Mongolia autonomous region with a population of around one million. As the Yellow River carries large quantities of sand, the pumps will be provided with a special highly resistant coating.

KSB: New cost-effective high-pressure pump series

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015 von admin

DPHM2-4-RF-HRThe pumps of the new compact, cost-effective Comeo type series are designed for an operating pressure of 10 bar. They are used for

  • water supply,
  • in small pressure booster systems as well as
  • in light industrial applications.
  • Water treatment is another application covered by this pump series.

The stainless steel variant Comeo C is ACS and WRAS approved for drinking water.

Salineo Pressure Center

Salino Pressure Center

Special eye-catcher at the KSB stand from 11 to 13 November 2014 will be the Salino Pressure Center, a system designed for economical water treatment based on membrane technology. The Frankenthal-based pump manufacturer will showcase this product at the Nuremberg trade fair at the request of engineering contractors operating at a global level since many non-European breweries must treat their process water themselves. The Salino Pressure Center consists of an axial piston pump and an axial piston motor, arranged on a common shaft. Driven by the return flow from the membrane, the axial piston motor transfers its power directly to the pump shaft. As pipes are not required between the individual components, the system takes up minimal space and is highly energy-efficient.

DAB: Efficient re-use of rainwater

Friday, May 30th, 2014 von admin

Aquatwin_Top_di_Dab_Pumps_Aprile_2014Combined with rainwater collection systems, the new Aquatwin Top is a pressurisation unit which offers savings in terms of water and therefore energy consumption. The rainwater stored in external tanks supplies all services that do not require drinking water (washing machine, WC…). In domestic applications it is calculated that the daily water requirement is 150 litres per person, in particular due to use of the WC, for cleaning and use of the washing machine, for watering the garden and washing the car. Roughly 50% of this consumption can be provided by rainwater, and the use of this water provides an average cost saving of 50%.

KSB: New powerful in-line pumps for building services applications

Monday, February 10th, 2014 von admin

KSB_Etaline“Energy-efficiency was the development engineers’ number one focus” as KSB annouced.”They worked intensively with CFD (computational fluid dynamics) for flow simulation to optimise the hydraulic shape of suction elbow, volute casing and impellers. All pump sets now meet the requirements of the ErP Directive, effective as from 2015, and their suction characteristics exceed those of the previous pump generation.”

The new Etaline type series comprises 22 pump sizes and its maximum motor rating is 55 kW. The maximum flow rate is 700 m³/h with the maximum discharge head possible being 95 metres.
