Pumps Special Pumping Technology You can Touch
The functional models of the special centrifugal pumps made by Bungartz will be showcased at Achema. The unique aspect is that visitors can convince themselves of the intrinsically safe pumps’ functionality and put them into operation at the stand.
Three functional models will be available for the visitors. For the first time, the fast, pressureless and complete unloading of a tanker truck by means of self-regulating pumps is being shown. The model consists of a glass railway tank car on a miniature scale. The V-AN vertical pumps independently adapt to variable feed rates – without any mechanical or electrical regulation equipment.
The company explains that even experts are amazed time and time again when they see the cavitation-free pumping processes. They are safe to run dry and dependable, self-venting, and have a low NPSH value.
The self-regulating effect and other functions include pumping without static head (even downstream of a vacuum and under boiling conditions); discontinuous volume flows; self-venting and 3-phase effect, behaviour with large amounts of gas; dry-running safety of a gas-lubricated magnetic coupling; physically working and wear-free hydrodynamic seal; and many others.
Another unique aspect is the 3-phase compatible and intrinsically safe chemical pump MPCV-AN (newly designed as all-ceramic version). The firm states that it has proven successful when pumping extreme media which are at the same time hot, corrosive and abrasive.
