The first project honored by SMACNA Brazil was Centro de Ensino e Pesquisa Albert Einstein, a climate-controlled habitat and forest in Sao Paulo. The development provides constant temperature and humidity control for the forest, classrooms, library and laboratories. Armstrong worked closely with the design team to incorporate 12 technologically advanced pumps into a high-performance system used throughout the chilled water system.

The second award-winning project was Edificio Multibrasil, one of the largest and most energy efficient corporate complexes in Brasilia. Its air conditioning system features state-of-the-art equipment which guarantees reliability and enhanced comfort to to tenants. The distribution of chilled water is handled by 26 Armstrong design envelope pumps.

Considered one of the most prestigious HVAC/fluid Management distinctions in Brazil, the Highlight of the Year awards are evaluated by a judging team monitored by SMACNA Brazil/ABRAVA committee.

Multi screw pump moves highly viscous heavy oil at low NPSHa

22.02.2024 -

At a tank farm in a Brazilian sea port, two centrifugal pumps were used for transferring heavy oil from storage tanks to road tankers or vessels until February 2020. This required the high viscosity of the medium to be reduced by means of diesel injection, costing the owner at least 2,000 US dollars each day. In addition, the centrifugal pumps regularly broke down due to cavitation damage. The owners decided to initially replace one of the two centrifugal pumps with a NOTOS multi screw pump from NETZSCH. Due to its very good suction capabilities, the selected four-screw 4NS is also suitable for highly viscous media with up to 200,000 cSt, achieving a flow rate of up to 3000 m³/h.
