AODD pump with detachable mounting foot

Tuesday, July 31st, 2018 von admin

The new 6 mm (1/4”) Velocity Series AODD pump offers a detachable mounting foot providing adaptable mounting capabilities. Thanks to this design, the Wilden Velocity Series pump can quickly and easily be reoriented by loosening a single screw.

This design provides the user with multiple mounting options while allowing the pump to perfectly fit into restricted spaces, a critical consideration for OEM systems and skids.

New hygienic container pump

Monday, July 30th, 2018 von admin

For the production of cosmetics and pharmaceutical products as well as for the processing of foodstuffs, a special thoroughness and cleanliness must be ensured to consumers. When using hygienic pumps, the operator expects besides a high system availability and low maintenance requirement an absolutely perfect hygienic and easy to clean design.

The B70V SanitaryPlus barrel pump has a one-piece joint-free drive shaft and is consistently without threads in the hydraulic area. Just a few components reduce the assembly and dismantling times for approx. 80 % as well significantly reduce the cleaning effort.

Improved Bluetooth Monitoring Solution

Friday, July 27th, 2018 von admin

The i-Alert2 sensor upgrade improves

  • battery performance,
  • enable programmable monitoring intervals to detect faster transient fault conditions,
  • and expand monitoring coverage to large slow-speed pumps.

“These continuous improvements and portfolio expansion, driven by our users’ feedback, provide customers greater flexibility when using our state-of-the-art Bluetooth monitoring solution,” said David Malinas, President of ITT Industrial Process.

Centrifugal Pump Minute

Friday, July 27th, 2018 von admin

Griswold has developed an educational video blog called the “Centrifugal Pump Minute.”

The first video is about Determining available system NPSHA. James Farley, Griswold Product Manager, reviews how to determine available system NPSHA for a pump that is installed and operational. Using the calculation needed to determine NPSHA, James presents example tests that will establish system performance and possible pump cavitation.

Following its acquisition of Colfax’s Fluid Handling business in late 2017, Circor International Inc., a US public company with 1.1 billion USD revenue and over 4,000 employees worldwide is bringing together more than 40 renowned pumps and valves brands under one direction, including Allweiler, GmbH. The Industrial Group is Circor’s largest business segment, and Allweiler is the largest brand within that group.

Sumit Mehrotra, President of Circor Industrial Group, explained Allweiler’s special position within the group: “The fact that Circor, an American corporation, has moved the headquarters of our Industrial Group to Allweiler’s Radolfzell location in Germany, indicates just how important this acquisition and Europe are to us.” Mr. Mehrotra went on to explain to ∆ p the strategy behind the Allweiler acquisition, its importance to the business and the ways in which Circor Industrial customers will benefit:

Water intake pumps to China’s mega-refinery

Wednesday, July 25th, 2018 von admin

Over the past decades, international technology Group Andritz has become a byword for highest quality and customized pump solutions and is now a preferred partner on a global scale. In the interests of its customers, the Pumps division does not set itself any limits with regard to size and flow rate in the development and manufacturing of tailor-made pumps. Thus, Andritz has been commissioned to supply the water intake pumps for China’s first privately managed and largest petrochemical plant.

Centrifugal Pumps in the production of frozen bakery products

Tuesday, July 24th, 2018 von admin

Technical paper by Susanne Suttrop

Committed to their slogan – Coppenrath & Wiese – Where else can you get quality like this? –  the company has earned a reputation in the field of frozen desserts that has been solidly anchored in the consciousness of consumers for more than 40 years (Fig. 1). But a slogan alone is not enough to satisfy customers if not simultaneously associated with reliably high quality products. That is why the company insists not only on high quality, fresh ingredients and skilled, talented employees but advanced production processes as well.

With a daily production volume of 3.3 million rolls as well as more than 200,000 various tortes, failure of even one component can lead to significant financial losses. For this reason, the company’s expectations for high-quality production systems are just as high as the expectations of consumers for outstanding products.

Impeller improves suction characteristics in high-pressure pumps

Tuesday, July 24th, 2018 von admin

KSB experts developed a special impeller for its Movitec multistage high-pressure pumps. This new impeller significantly improves these pumps’ suction characteristics (NPSH value).

It proves its worth particularly in applications with critical inlet conditions (e.g. boiler feed applications) as well as applications in which the pump is required to take in water from low-lying tanks or at higher temperatures. Under these conditions, a pressure drop in the intake area may cause cavitation to occur in the first pump stage. This can result in excessive wear of pump parts or motor bearings as well as a reduced service life of the pump due to damaged parts and an unbalanced hydraulic system.

The new impeller is offered as an alternative to the standard product.

Pumps used in mining for transporting packing material

Monday, July 23rd, 2018 von admin

Salinen Austria AG is one of Europe’s leading salt suppliers. The company’s most important products include brine for the chemical industry, food, industrial and melting salt, and chemically pure salt for pharmaceuticals. Three sites (Bad Ischl, Hallstatt, Altaussee) produce more than 3 million cubic meter of brine. Because of this, Austria is one of the most important salt producers in Europe. Salinen Austria AG contracted with Altmayer Anlagentechnik to construct a system that would be used to transfer tailing piles from the brine purification process used in the production of evaporated salt into the caverns. The tailing piles from the brine purification process are to be used to pack the salt cavities that have been created.

AODD pumps with a solid plastic design

Friday, July 20th, 2018 von admin

The new C-Series pumps have been specifically developed by Almatec to be a cost-effective alternative. The housing parts are tightened to each other via housing bolts. All of the C-Series’ bolts are tightened together against a diaphragm-sized ring on each side of the pump.

This design distributes the forces of the housing bolts onto the housing parts evenly, providing a consistent flow of forces that increases bolt torque and improves pump safety.
