Calpeda extends self-priming jet pump range


Following the customer’s demand for a smaller pump model CALPEDA have included in their NGX series the new model NGX 2 0.45 kW. The excellent self-priming capabilities of the pump allow to lift water from a depth of 9,5 metres in less than 2 minutes.

Pump performance range of Calpada NGX 2

An exclusive patented diffuser design with flow control device features the compact construction. The NGX is up to 40% smaller than conventional pumps a similar type.

The new diffuser and flow control device guide the fluid from the impeller into the central part of the pump casing, reducing turbulence and velocity, with effective use of the surrounding liquid in dampening the noise of flow.

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.
