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.

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.

Smart pumps and predictive analytics gain traction

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018 von admin

Frost & Sullivan’s recent analysis, Global Pumps Market in the Oil and Gas Industry, Forecast to 2024, finds that there has been a concentrated focus on operational expenditure (OPEX) in the oil & gas industry following the oil price plunge in 2016. Upstream companies are increasingly acknowledging digitization as an important enabler of cost savings and profitability, and are therefore gravitating toward tools such as smart pumps. Among the many new-generation pumps in the market, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)-enabled and energy-efficient pumps with demonstrable return on investment (RoI) are expected to experience the highest demand.

Bubble-free filling of oil dampers

Monday, November 27th, 2017 von admin

Filling of oil dampers in low-volume and pilot production is mostly manual work. There is a lot of potential for improvement by a compact, flexible dosing system which includes a micro metering pump. This self-priming micro annular gear pump can work without an application of compressed air to the reservoir.

On the one hand, this saves the cost of compressed air including the necessary devices and, on the other hand, avoids the introduction of compressed air into the silicone or hydraulic oil. The medium can be filled bubble-free, gently and without loss of quality.

Hot water version

The new CombiTherm Plus pump provides transfer of hot fluids without the need for additional, external cooling systems. The pump is available in two configurations suitable for the pumping of hot oil or hot water and provides an highly efficient and pumping solution. The air-cooled CombiTherm Plus pump provides transfer of hot oil or hot water in a wide range of applications including

  • injection molding,
  • chemical processing,
  • asphalt / bitumen and tar processing,
  • deep frying systems,
  • steam generators,
  • fuel heaters and
  • heat recovery systems.

The pump keeps fluid temperatures uniform to ensure processes are efficient while its design protects seal faces and bearings from the heat of the fluid; ensuring durable, low maintenance, long life operation.

Grundfos: Oils and fats challenge pump technology

Friday, August 7th, 2015 von admin

grundfos pressebild NB NKNew end-suction pumps according to chemical standard DIN EN 22858 for chocolate, biscuits, ice cream, baby food.

Vegetable oils and fats determine the texture, the look, the smell and the taste of many foods. They also protect the skin as cosmetics and transport the healing power of drugs in ointments and essences. Also in technology, oils and fats from oilseeds – rapeseed, soya beans and sunflower seeds play an important role. They can be processed among other things for pollution-free coolants for use in metalworking and for biodegradable lubricants and hydraulic oils. The oils and fats processing industry is continually looking for more efficient processes, quality and cost reasons. Maximum oil yield, minimum oil losses and energy savings are the relevant outcomes. Health aspects come into play: Only precise and sensitive processing (refining, hydrogenation) ensures that no unwanted reaction products occur.

Pumps are needed in all process steps of the refining of vegetable oils and vegetable fats
