In today’s water industry, the ability to meet performance targets is a huge priority. The question is, how to achieve this in a timely and cost-effective manner?
Cartridge mechanical seals, originally specified for petroleum, natural gas and chemical applications, are increasingly being specified for pumps across a much broader range of industries.
Pumps are critical to a range of industries, from chemical production and food processing, to wastewater treatment and biogas production.
The automation of process control systems is very important for improving efficiency and reliability.
CNC specialist NUM is helping one of the USA’s top fabrication equipment manufacturers to develop an ultra-precise 5-axis bevel head for its waterjet cutting system.
The control of emissions from combustion engines has made several headlines in the past, bringing the subject to the fore on several occasions.
One of the world’s largest wind turbine manufacturers, Enercon, is using MasoSine SPS sinusoidal pumps from Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group to optimise the delivery of protective impregnating resin at its Magdeburg production facility in Germany.
Well designed and manufactured bearings will ensure that a pump works more efficiently, can tolerate higher temperature running and cope with varying load conditions. Perhaps more importantly, bearing selection will also have a marked effect upon the life expectancy of a pump, as Phil Burge, Marketing and Communications Manager at SKF explains.
Increased production demands in recent years have led to a need for more accurate, reliable and durable components. Ironically, as the range of available technologies and pneumatic valve types, models, and properties expands to meet these requirements, specifiers, machine builders, OEMs and plant engineers can find the choice daunting.
