4 Reasons to choose AODD pumps for chemical processes

Thursday, September 20th, 2018 von admin

Technical paper by Erik Solfelt:

Thanks to its simple yet innovative design, the AODD pump has proven to be able to consistently meet the demands of chemical processors while building a reputation as a go-to pumping technology where basic fluid-transfer capabilities are required. The AODD pump, which possesses a stable of notable operational characteristics, has become a first-choice technology for chemical manufacturers who are searching for a pump that meshes cost-conscious air consumption with reliable and safe production rates.

Sulzer is optimizing pump reliability and performance

Thursday, September 20th, 2018 von admin

The offshore industry faces two main challenges: maximizing production within the limits of the reservoir, and minimizing operational costs while maintaining the safety of the platform. Pumps form one of the main groups of equipment that influence the outcome of both challenges and they require expert knowledge to ensure continued reliability and performance.

Murray Wilson, Sulzer UK argues that in each case, industry engineering expertise and commercial innovation are required to deliver these goals. Furthermore, the capital expenditure to improve reliability is most often far outweighed by the costs incurred by an unexpected failure and the subsequent costs of lost production. By taking a proactive approach and involving an expert maintenance provider, platform operators can deliver significant benefits to the business in the long term.

Multiphase pumps for oil-water-sand-gas mixtures

Wednesday, September 19th, 2018 von admin

The global hunger for oil and gas continues unabated, which means that exploration companies are striving to achieve higher and higher yields and are also increasingly developing difficult sources, such as heavy oils with an extremely high solid content. Methane from coal seams or highly viscous oil at more than 10,000 mPas are already of commercial interest today but are just as complicated to extract as oil-sand mixtures from the Sudanese desert. Conveying systems in particular have to be adapted to the media and the environment if production is to be efficient under such conditions. Netzsch Pumps & Systems has developed a multiphase pump precisely for this area of application. It can handle mixtures of oil, water and gas along with sand content, achieving flow rates of up to 600 m³/h.

Sanitary AODD designed to meet exacting standards

Tuesday, September 11th, 2018 von admin

12″, 10″ and 7″ H Series versions

Flotronic Pumps’ original 10” ‘H’ Series pump was designed to meet the exacting hygiene standards of 3-A Sanitary Standards, Inc (3-A SSI) and to be used in processes where hygiene is a priority. Since the launch of the 10” pump in 2015, the range has been expanded to encompass 7” and 12” versions, both of which are 3-A SSI accredited. Pipework connection sizes are now available from 1” – 3” allowing greater flexibility.

Compressed air motors for drum pumps

Monday, September 10th, 2018 von admin

Energy efficiency and reducing the operating costs is important as well for user of drum pumps. With the development of the new MDx compressed air motors, Lutz has taken account of this requirement.

With the oil-free, 1000 watts air motor you can achieve the same delivery capacity with 20 % less connection pressure and 4 % less air consumption comparable to other products. The motors have a good start-up behaviour also with low pressure.

New compact centrifugal pumps for marine applications

Monday, August 20th, 2018 von admin

The very compact MA-C version

Allweiler will exhibit its redesigned vertical centrifugal pump solutions for ship engine rooms at SMM fair Hamburg, Germany. The innovative foot design reduces space requirements and improves operational safety.

The new compact MA-S and MA-C series are vertically installed centrifugal pumps with axial inlets and radial outlets. The S version was designed for simple and rapid assembly and disassembly of the insert unit with impeller. The C version offers the same reliability with a significantly shorter installation height, so it’s perfect for customers with severe space restrictions.
