  • No More Cooling With Sewage KSB Offers A Cleaner Alternative For Waste Water Pumping
    of the world s most experienced supplier of pumps and pump parts solves the problem of cooling waste water pumps with a closed loop jacket cooling system for its Amarex KRT The elegantly engineered solution provides a cleaner more reliable alternative to sewage cooled systems for a variety of applications including waste water sludge and storm water transport All motors produce heat when they run and they must have a way to get rid of that heat even waste water pumps explains Azir Khan North East Regional Manager for KSB Inc Many common pumps employ an open loop cooling system that allows the liquid they are pumping to circulate around the motor thus using the pumped fluid as a coolant That is a simple solution says Mr Khan However in environments where the pumped fluid is contaminated by debris such as sewage the jacket eventually becomes clogged requiring maintenance crews to frequently shut down the pump and dismantle it to remove the accumulated material Mr Khan says The sewage or other material in the open loop cooling system eventually create a coating on the motor surface that actually acts like a blanket insulating the motor and interfering with heat transfer The motor overheats and shuts down typically in the middle of the night on Christmas Eve Protect the cooling system protect the pump Of course an unscheduled pump shutdown is never a laughing matter so KSB offers a practical alternative The cooling liquid inside the Amarex KRT jacket is an environmentally safe propylene glycol water mix The 38 62 antifreeze mixture enables the closed loop cooling system to protect the pump in temperatures as low as minus 4 F minus 20 C An impeller inside the closed loop system circulates the propylene glycol water mixture so that it constantly flows around the motor gathering heat then over a heat exchanger which dissipates the heat into the pumped liquid via the heat exchanger The system is completely sealed against the pumped media as well as the air filled motor housing Designed for continuous duty in a completely dry or fully submerged condition the KRT design greatly simplifies maintenance for pump technicians Crews need to inspect the coolant only every 8000 hours or two years and replace the coolant every five years to ensure ongoing reliable performance All pumps should be this easy KSB s Factory Mutual certified design is about a decade ahead of competing designs and has been proving its worth in the global market for over ten years says Mr Khan The KRT can be installed in a variety of configurations to accommodate the requirements of any waste water application In addition as with all KSB pumps the KRT features precision manufacturing to ensure easy maintenance Monitoring sensors are teleservice enabled to permit remote monitoring and the completely sealed cable entry points provide safe operation even if a cable is damaged or cut below the water level KSB provides municipal waste water management solutions that make pumping applications easier

  • New Technology Rethinks Traditional Rotary Lobe Pump Design
    operators The NETZSCH TORNADO T2 rotary lobe pump is redesigned to increase reliability maintenance and performance while reducing TCO Traditional design meets new thinking A rotary lobe pump is a positive displacement pump with the pumping action generated by the counter rotation of two rotors within the pump chamber which are synchronized externally The media enters the pump chamber through the inlet port and is carried around the chamber by the rotors to the outlet port where it is discharged Traditional rotary lobe pumps use rubber covered lobes that rotate inside a metal housing often with bolted in metal wear liners Recently NETZSCH engineers decided to rethink this convention by asking Why not reverse the construction by making the lobes in steel and the housing in rubber They considered this novel concept during design of a new rotary lobe pump called the TORNADO T2 These engineers were looking for a way to combine the wear resistance and simple metal rotor rubber stator construction of a progressing cavity pump with traditional rotary lobe pump technology During the entire pumping cycle only elastomer and metal component surfaces interface within the pump eliminating the excess wear and heat generated from elastomer to elastomer contact that sometimes damages traditional rotary lobe pumps By using dissimilar materials for the static and dynamic pump head components the elastomeric surfaces are subjected to lower dynamic loading resulting in less plastic deformation and stress reducing wear and extending operational life As an added advantage the new design does not require O rings or gaskets resulting in a durable and robust construction along with simplicity and ease of maintenance Another typical rotary lobe pump belief is that a rotary lobe pump could not be built without a set of timing gears The new thinking instead uses a single synchronous toothed timing belt This eliminates the maintenance intensive and costly gearbox and the oil required to run it lowering operational costs and demonstrating environmental awareness and sustainability The idea was adapted from technology commonly used in the automotive industry The tooth belt drive system also improves maintenance by producing greater accuracy of synchronization eliminating timing gears and oil lubrication generating less heat and demonstrating quieter operation This belt both drives and synchronizes the pump shafts If required the drive can be used in conjunction with a frequency converter to achieve a specific flow rate or range of flow rates The next new design solution was for minimizing pulsation while still using durable and simple bi lobe rotors that are better for solids handling Engineers developed a unique pulsation reduction system that uses channels molded into the liner s rubber walls to release the lobe energy and dampen pulsation This is the equivalent of using a multi lobe rotor meeting customer demands for shear sensitive product conveyance and no pulsation downstream The design of the pump housing includes integrally cast round flanges Having full flange to flange access when servicing the pump offers maintenance personnel more room to access pump internals
