The Finish Thompson MSKC series of pumps are especially suited to processes such as filtration, water treatment, fume scrubbing, plating, printed circuit board manufacturing or wherever a low flow, high head, sealless and leakfree pumping performance is required.

The two stage impeller design enables users hydraulic requirements to be precisely met, also, because dual impellers generate twice the pressure, a more compact pump package is possible. Five different impeller combinations are available, and because the diameters of the impellers can be mixed and matched, optimum hydraulic coverage is assured.

The compact and efficient design of these pumps mean lower power consumption, enabling the use of a smaller motor, resulting in significant energy savings for users over the life of the pump.

MSKC pumps benefit from proven, powerful neodymium magnet technology, so the potential for expensive and time-consuming seal problems is eliminated.

The pumps are available in Polypropylene or PVDF, with either carbon, PTFE or ceramic bushing and a choice of Viton or EPDM 'O' rings.

The series of pumps cover flow rates up to a maximum of 13.6 m3/hr with a maximum head of 20 metres. Operating temperatures are 180 deg F for the Polypropylene version and 220 deg F for the PVDF version.

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.
