Hermetic deliver more than 200 pumps to the Middle East

Wednesday, June 27th, 2018 von admin

The Germany based pump manufacturer Hermetic dispatched more than 200 pumps with canned motor drive to the Middle East. The mega scale project includes all pump widths: from the smallest CAM 1 serie to typical oil & gas pumps of the CNP range. All of them are fitted with API 610 (American Petroleum Industry standard) hydraulics and equipped with a maintenance free canned motor. The drive power ranges from 1 kW to more than 100 kW.

The pumps fulfill API 685 standard requirements for sealless pumps, as well as expectations towards safety and reliability.

Slurry test rig for pump optimizing

Tuesday, June 26th, 2018 von admin

Pumping of extremely abrasive media, e.g. mixtures of iron ore and water, poses major challenges to mine operators all over the world. In order to improve lifetime and increase MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) values, reliable and well-proven technological concepts are required, especially in terms of wearing part resistance. The Mulitsafe double hose-diaphragm pump offers a proven technology for these highly abrasive applications. The only real wearing parts of this pump are the suction and discharge valves. To guarantee continuous improvement of the already high valve lifetime, a special test rig has been installed at the Feluwa works in Mürlenbach/Germany. Daniel Nägel and Philipp Werhan are describing, how this test rig (Fig. 1 – with pump type TGK 250 3 DS 35, performance data: Q = 14 m³/h, p = 130 bar(g) ) allows testing of customer-specific media under real conditions.

AODD for hygienic processes and sanitary applications

Monday, June 25th, 2018 von admin

Flotronic’s ‘E’ Series pumps are air operated double diaphragm pumps (AODD). These pumps have proved themselves unmatched when tested to exacting performance standards by EHEDG (the European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group). The ‘E’ Series offers peace of mind for the food, beverage, dairy and pharmaceutical industries – and any environment or process where avoidance of product contamination is paramount.

The 10” version with 2” connections offers a pump solution ideal for customers with low to mid-range flow rate applications while customers seeking flow rates as high as 500 litres per minute will find the 12” pump with 1½” – 3” ideal.

Hermetically sealed Twin-Screw Pump for chemical and petrochemical sectors

Monday, June 18th, 2018 von admin

ITT Bornemann launched a new hermetically-sealed pump, named SLW, at Achema 2018 in Frankfurt, Germany. This pump serie uses a magnetic coupling for a hermetic pump drive. With the sealed fluid chamber, critical media with harmful substances are confined to the pump and not released into the environment.

  • The design allows the two screws to convey the product and transmit the torque.
  • The single-volute design is also compact and requires a small footprint for installation.
  • The product is lubricated with inboard bearings.
  • The less-wear parts design leads to low-maintenance, resulting in high MTBF.

Elbow pump made from plastic

Monday, June 18th, 2018 von admin

The use of elbow pumps is always indicated when large flow rates are to be pumped to low heads. This requires a propeller-like impeller with both axial inlet and outlet, which guides the out warding flow into a pipe bend. This geometry then allows the introduction of a long projecting pump shaft in the pipe bend up to the impeller. The bearing of the pump shaft takes place outside the pumping chamber and must be generously dimensioned in the axial direction. The adjustment of the delivery head is usually done with a belt drive between the pump shaft and motor. The new ROPP model – showcased at Achema 2018 – of the Germany based pump manufacturer Wernert is also based on this classic pump concept, but with a few additional technical features that should be of interest to the experts and pump users in the chemical industries:

Changing the rules for external gear pump operation

Tuesday, June 12th, 2018 von admin

The new Maag pump line for polymers named x6 class offers vastly improved volumetric efficiency. These pumps can operate at

  • reduced rpm,
  • shear rates and
  • temperatures,
  • and consequently reduces the residence time.

This will favorably impact production rate, polymer quality and pump lifetime, while significantly reducing energy consumption.

New 3-Inch AODD pump

Tuesday, June 12th, 2018 von admin

At Achema 2018 Aro introduced the new EXP Series three-inch non-metallic, air-operated diaphragm pump for chemical and water processing applications.

These pumps can transfer up to 20,000 liters of fluid in 30 minutes. That equates to a 47 percent increase in flow compared to the Aro two-inch pump, and a flow rate of up to 270 gallons per minute.
