Tremendous Savings On Board

speed control of seawater cooling pumps brings tremendous potential for savings to Hapag-Lloyd AG

 

As shipping rates drop and competitive pressures increase, shipowners are under tremendous pressure to reduce the operating costs of their vessels. Fuel is still the number-one factor for savings, even with today's lower fuel prices.. And because seawater cooling pumps are larger than required for slow steaming, shipowners will require even more fuel than they need with conventional pump control systems (only valves).

Progressing cavity pumps at the Heimbach power plant

 

The operating principles and overall design of progressing cavity pumps make them suitable for universal use. One of their fields of application is the pumping of abrasive liquids that may contain solids, but also fibers. Sludges in sewage plants are one example. These pumps are also well-suited to metering. They generate a consistent and pulsation-free flow even when faced with fluctuating working pressures and liquid consistencies. Gentle pumping action, with low turbulence and minimal mixing of the pumped liquid, is another identifying characteristic of progressing cavity pumps.

Monitoring vibrations, mechanical seals, and bearings for safety and performance

 

With more than 70 years of experience in plastics processing, Switzerland-based Quadrant Group is a leading expert in a wide range of polymer materials and technologies for polymer conversion. In order to maintain a high level of quality in the production process, Quadrant''s heat-transfer pumps must work safely and reliably. These pumps are commonly subjected to high loads. At the same time, failure of a pump can have serious consequences, especially if hot oil escapes. The high loads on the pump are the result of high temperatures and large temperature differentials as well as decomposition reactions that may occur when the heat transfer liquid is subjected to excessive thermal loads.

 

 
 

Pumps for synthetic heat-transfer liquids 

 

As soon as the temperature in a heat-transfer system becomes too high for water, a plant operator must choose between petroleum-based or synthetic oils as the heat-transfer liquid.  When modern petroleum oils are used, systems with feed temperatures up to about 300 °C can stay in service for their entire service life with one filling and with virtually no maintenance. Once feed temperatures rise above 300 °C, only high-quality synthetic oils will be appropriate. Under these conditions, even minor temperature increases will have a decisive effect on the service life of the oils. An additional 10 °C commonly doubles the product''s specific rate of decomposition. When compared to petroleum-based heat-transfer oils, the amount of maintenance associated with synthetic oils is significantly lower.

 

 
 

Pumps are the heart of heat-transfer plants

 

Manufacturers in a variety of industries depend on heat-transfer plants to heat or cool their machines and apparatus. German firm heat11 GmbH & Co. KG specializes in heat-transfer plants of virtually all types. The chemical industry uses their installations for controlling the temperature of reactors and during the production of color pigments and liquid crystals. In the plastics industry, heat-transfer plants are essential for producing polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and in the production of CDs and DVDs. But recently, according to heat11’s Managing Director Dietmar Hunold, heat recovery has become an increasingly important application. 

 

 
 

Peristaltic pumps for moving filtration water

 

The Eversburg sewage treatment plant is designed to serve 250,000 population equivalents. But in 2005, its actual load was closer to 309,000 population equivalents (COD 80 mg/l), pushing the nitrogen input level above the plant''s capabilities.

To deal with this situation, engineer Peter Sikora organized a team to develop a process-based alternative to biological elimination of nitrogen. The pumps moving filtration water into the nitrogen elimination plant are a critical aspect of the concept. In 2006, the plant began using Allweiler peristaltic pumps as an alternative to the centrifugal pumps from another manufacturer.
