Pumps for the ISS

Wednesday, October 24th, 2018 von admin

Liquid pumps made by KNF were on board an HTV-7 unmanned cargo spacecraft launched from Japan on September 23, 2018, destined for the International Space Station (ISS). These space-worthy liquid pumps are part of a new Life Support Rack for the ISS. Also known as an Advanced Closed Loop System (ACLS), the rack purifies air and produces oxygen for the ISS. It was developed by Airbus Defence and Space for the European Space Agency (ESA). The new ACLS rack will be installed in the ISS’s Destiny module (also known as the US Lab) by ESA astronaut and ISS commander Alexander Gerst on November 2, 2018.

KNF-Engineers worked with Airbus for four years to specify and design the pump, which is based on the proven FEM 1.09 dosing pump. The project was part of Airbus’s COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) program, which uses well-established components to reduce the price tag for space flight.

KSB extended portfolio with vertical turbine pumps

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018 von admin

The KSB Group extended its portfolio by adding a comprehensive programme of vertical turbine pumps. The so-called B Pumps are multistage vertical turbine pumps with a submerged hydraulic system. The pump sets comprise a discharge casing assembly, a column pipe and a pump bowl assembly. In total, customers can choose from 17 sizes with three different impeller types.

  • The pump sets cover heads of up to 200 metres.
  • Flow rates of up to 720 l/sec.
  • Available with one to 25 stages,
  • with stage casing diameters ranging from six to 24 inches.

New plastic centrifugal pump for aggressive liquids containing solid particles

Thursday, October 4th, 2018 von admin

These mechanically sealed centrifugal pumps are made for liquids containing solid particles. Since there are no metal parts on the liquid side, the pumps are ideal for chemicals transfer and circulation in surface treatment industry. These Tapflo CTP pumps are available with BSP thread, flange or hose connections. The pumps can be used for chemically corrosive and toxic liquids as well as for clean and thin liquids like pure chemicals, acids and alkalis because the wetted components are non-metallic, injection molded thermoplastics enabling excellent corrosion resistance.

KSB at BrauBeviale 2018 in Nuremberg

Wednesday, September 26th, 2018 von admin

Vitachrom with SuPremE motor, PumpDrive and PumpMeter

KSB Group will be showcasing its comprehensive range of pumps and valves for sterile/hygienic applications and support processes at Brau Beviale 2018 in Nuremberg from 13 to 15 November 2018.

Naturally, the focal point of KSB’s presentation will be the five hygienic food pump type series Vitachrom, Vitacast, Vitalobe, Vitaprime and Vitastage. Because of the large number of design variants the pumps are offered in, they are ideally suited for almost any pumping task in the fields of liquid or viscous food transport. The pumps’ excellent cleaning and steaming in place (CIP/SIP) capabilities are promoted by the almost complete lack of dead volume, the electropolished wetted components and the use of high-grade stainless steels. All pumps belonging to the Vita series have been awarded the certificates common to the industry, such as EHEDG, and their elastomer components conform to FDA standards.

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.
