Compact rotary vane pump with a great performance

25.04.2002

As the smallest rotary vane pump supplied by ASF Thomas, the G 01 K series (K stands for plastic) exhibits clearly improved performance characteristics in a compact design. With a length of only four centimeters and a total weight of 32 grams, the dry-running pump is ideal for applications requiring a high flow-rate but with limited space. Furthermore, the G 01 K is available at a very competitive price.

Completely new materials are the secret behind the upgraded version. Undoubtedly, these materials are responsible for a more efficient operation while maintaining the same price level. Contingent on the motor, the small, oil-free pump offers a flow rate of up to 2,2 l/min with an intermittent vacuum up to 70 mbar and an intermittent pressure up to 80 mbar. The nearly pulsation- and vibration-free G 01 K is also maintenance-free. Lifetime ranges from 500 to well over 2,000 hours according to the motor.

The rotary vane pump is well suited for conveying air streams subject to a low back pressure. Typical applications include portable gas analysers, medical and analytical instrumentation as well as handling and automation.

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.
