BBA Pumps Reduces Weight of PT150 Wellpointing Pump


"How much does it weigh?" This is always the first question asked by logistic companies and crane operators. Mobile pumps and weight savings go hand in hand.

his is why BBA Pumps has reduced the weight of the PT150 wellpointing pump by as much as 135 kg. This provides a great advantage particularly on the construction site when moving the pump with a mobile crane.

By incorporating more composite components and adjusting some cast parts, BBA Pumps does not have to compromise on the robustness. The modernized sound attenuated PT150 has yielded the largest weight savings. The electric pumps in the stackable frame have also become significantly lighter.

The new type designations are now PT150 D155 and PT150 D185.

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.
