The new CombiTherm Plus pump provides transfer of hot fluids without the need for additional, external cooling systems. The pump is available in two configurations suitable for the pumping of hot oil or hot water and provides an highly efficient and pumping solution. The air-cooled CombiTherm Plus pump provides transfer of hot oil or hot water in a wide range of applications including
- injection molding,
- chemical processing,
- asphalt / bitumen and tar processing,
- deep frying systems,
- steam generators,
- fuel heaters and
- heat recovery systems.
The pump keeps fluid temperatures uniform to ensure processes are efficient while its design protects seal faces and bearings from the heat of the fluid; ensuring durable, low maintenance, long life operation.
- condensate and
- mineral oils.
They are ideal for industrial recirculation and fire-fighting systems, cooling water circuits and washing plants as well as for boosting pressure in general process applications, for example.
- 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.
Ruhrpumpen recently sold a water injection package that consists of two booster pumps (SCE 10X8X16) and two main pumps (SM 6X13X10). The 2.3 MW driver for the SM pump operated by a variable frequency drive. The base plate, that also will carry the lube oil system, is designed as a 3 point support version. This is a special design for platforms and FPSO´s (Floating Production Storage and Offloading). The 3 point support will protect the pump unit from stresses due to the twisting of the ship.
Combined 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%.
The Sulzer product portfolio for the water and wastewater business consists of
- submersible sewage pumps,
- submersible mixers and flow boosters,
- turbocompressors as well as
- pump control systems.
The six submersible motor pumps supplied last year by Andritz to Jurong Shipyard, Singapore, were started up successfully on two drilling platforms in the North Sea. The pumps convey the industrial water for cooling the drilling equipment from a depth of 20 meters. Installed in the supporting legs of the platforms, each of these four-pole submersible motor pumps conveys around 600 m³/h of industrial water.
“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.
KSB received an order for equipping a new pumping station for the Athmania project with ten large water pumps. The pumps type RDLO 700-980 A are to be driven by a 1,810-kW electric motor each. Running at full load, each of the ten pump sets will be delivering 2,025 litres of water per second at a head of 75 metres. To rule out the risk of corrosion, all impellers will be made of stainless steel. The pump casings are made of nodular cast iron.
