The new pump series from Rheinhütte is named RCNKu+. The bearing carrier has greasable rolling bearings already in the standard version and the bearings have high load ratings. A high-strength shaft material provides for low vibration and high, transferable shaft power. The thick-walled plastic components of the hydraulics optimize the service life.
The new series is based on a standardisation of parts. The result is a compact stocking of spare parts, in particular with regard to the new mechanical seal. Here, the same sealing units are used for different sizes.
The new developed mechanical seal RHETA is completely metal-free and therefore corrosion resistant. This mechanical seal can be rinsed when installed. This can be done during operation or at standstill, so that cleaning can be carried out whenever it is needed. The assembly oft he sealing is simple and can be learned intuitively. The critical parts are designed in such a way that incorrect installation can be excluded. Due to the sophisticated part concept, a conversion from single-acting to double-acting mechanical seal can be carried out quickly and easily. You only need the parts for the second seal unit.
The new pump is used in many industrial and chemical applications with abrasive and corrosive media. Its applications range from chemically contaminated water and wastewater applications to complicated processes such as chloralkali electrolysis, production of titanium dioxide, flue gas cleaning in incineration plants and steel and stainless steel pickling.
