ITT Flygt Launches Two New Slim Line Submersible Bibo Pumps for Use in Active Dewatering

22.01.2002

ITT Fygt is releasing two new slim line pumps from the hard working Bibo range, for use in active dewatering. The new models, which can handle up to 55 l/s and pump up to heads of 70 metres, can operate in pipes ranging between 300 and 500 mm in diameter.

ITT Flygt Launches Two New Slim Line Submersible Bibo Pumps for Use in Active Dewatering

ITT Flygt is launching two new slim line models from the hard working Bibo range of submersible pumps, designed specially to handle liquid containing high amounts of clay, stone chips, drilling fines or other solids. Operating in all corners of the world, over 1 million Bibos have already been manufactured to date.

The new models, which range between 3.7 kW and 8 kW, can handle up to 55 litres per second and pump at heads up to 70 metres. They are made from cast aluminium and have an outer casing of stainless steel and the multi-vane impellers are made from hardened cast iron in order to withstand the tough operating conditions.

As standard the pumps have Flygt’s unique double sealing system, two seals that work independently of one another, but provide double protection, plus spin-out®, which expels particles from the seal chamber.

In order to meet the demands of active dewatering, the pumps come in two sizes, 295 mm and 360 mm in diameter, and they can fit easily into most pipes. Just like any other member of the Bibo range the pumps are portable, they can be simply lifted from one pipe to another and set to work.

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.
