New metering pumps for chemical and waste water applications

Thursday, May 24th, 2018 von admin

The PD Series of LMI helps users simplify selection, configuration and operation. The intuitive user interface makes it easy for operators to examine capacity settings and set flow rates to a desired output. These features improve safety and give operators confidence that the pumps are working as configured. New alarm indicators for tank levels are brightly displayed on a large color display.

The new pumps feature improved hardware, a new graphical user interface and external control inputs. Enhanced software facilitates new calibration assist capabilities, plus new functionality to log pump strokes, estimated volume and power cycles.

An umpteen number of manufacturers facilitate pump technology searching

Thursday, May 24th, 2018 von admin

www.starpumpalliance.com a new selection portal for the pump users. The Star Pump Alliance has set itself the goal to assist professional users of pumps in selecting pump technology tailored to fit their specific applications. “Our portal offers extensive information about pump technologies as well as a tool for the individual selection of pumps with access to the product portfolios of different brands. This selector proposes to website visitors one or several suitable pump technologies for each specific application on the basis of the application characteristics the users have entered”, Kai Stegemann, General Manager of Star Pump Alliance GmbH.

Suspended pumps with hydraulic system of standardised chemical pumps

Friday, May 18th, 2018 von admin

The Estigia type series extends KSB product portfolio for the chemical and petrochemical industries and other applications. It will be showcased at Achema 2018 trade fair in Frankfurt.

The low-pressure suspended pumps are designed for vertical wet installation in a closed tank under atmospheric pressure. For the installation depth, various lengths ranging from a minimum of 852 mm to a maximum of 6402 mm are available and three discharge pipe diameters can be selected for each pump size.

Low flow with high head pump applications

Friday, May 18th, 2018 von admin

Side Channel Pumps are self-priming pumps that operate in low NPSH conditions & have the ability to handle up to 50% entrained gas. These pumps run at very low flow rates, while generating medium to high differential pressures.

Side Channel Pump specialist, Sero PumpSystems, will showcase these capabilities and the operation of multifunction pumps with their Mini Pump Lab (Fig.) at 2018 Achema  trade show in Frankfurt. Sero will demonstrate an affordable, easy and effective control of side channel pumps utilizing “Industrie 4.0”, as well as duty point monitoring within the pump’s performance range.

Centrifugal pump with smaller footprint

Thursday, May 17th, 2018 von admin

A next-generation redesign of the Allmarine MA-S and MA-C series from Allweiler now provides more vertical installation options for centrifugal pumps with axial inlets in marine and general service applications.

The Allmarine MA-S with spacer coupling and the MA-C, a closed coupled version, not only consume a smaller footprint but also offer a special foot design to help assure stability of the pump in heavy seagoing conditions. A shorter, lighter design modifies the suction flange with integrated fixing holes for pedestal mounting of the foot to the ship foundation.

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.

New range of sewage grinders

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018 von admin

The ever-growing rag content in today’s wastewater means that even the best pumps may not be enough. When it comes to critical pumping stations, pump users may need more. Thanks to the acquisition of JWC Environmental, Sulzer now also offers a comprehensive range of powerful sewage grinders – the Muffin Monster and the Channel Monster.

These machines will be presented on Ifat show in Munich next week together with the pump technology.

Smart pumps and predictive analytics gain traction

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018 von admin

Frost & Sullivan’s recent analysis, Global Pumps Market in the Oil and Gas Industry, Forecast to 2024, finds that there has been a concentrated focus on operational expenditure (OPEX) in the oil & gas industry following the oil price plunge in 2016. Upstream companies are increasingly acknowledging digitization as an important enabler of cost savings and profitability, and are therefore gravitating toward tools such as smart pumps. Among the many new-generation pumps in the market, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)-enabled and energy-efficient pumps with demonstrable return on investment (RoI) are expected to experience the highest demand.

High-speed metering gear pumps for complex applications

Friday, May 4th, 2018 von admin

Oerlikon Barmag pumps are used in processes at the chemicals, plastics, paints and lacquers industries as well as in PUR applications. One of the biggest challenges is metering poorly-lubricating media. The pump manufacturer wil show at Achema in Frankfurt the GM and GA ranges an a high-speed pump with sealed product space.

The main advantage of the high-speed pump is the sealed product space. The space within the pump that comes into contact with the media is therefore limited to the area around the gears. The external, ball-bearing support points in the high-speed pump are externally lubricated, hence ensuring that the product to be metered does not cause damage as a result of poor lubrication.

Hygienic pump for filtration systems with up to 80 bar

Thursday, May 3rd, 2018 von admin

Representing a specific evolution of Fristam FP centrifugal pumps, the FPH range combines all the construction benefits of the standard range, including open impellers and flow-optimised pumping channel, with the suitability for use under high system pressure and with high volumetric flows. What is more, FPH pumps transport media with a viscosity of up to 800 mPa s especially in membrane filtration systems.
