Rietschle Thomas in Puchheim is now offering a low cost peristaltic pump, namely the new SR15 series, with an intricate technology.

Low Cost Peristaltic Pump with Intricate Technology

SR15

For the core piece of the pump Rietschle Thomas is relying on proven technology: here the roller carrier from the renowned SR25 series was incorporated. This carrier allows for a self-adjusting distance between the housing and roller thus protecting the tubing from excessive wear and tear.

With this type of roller carrier assembly Rietschle Thomas knowingly separates itself from all other peristaltic pump manufacturers within this price range. Spring-mounted rollers compensate for the usual manufacturing tolerances and the tubing is only strained as much as necessary. In addition, lateral rollers ensure correct guidance of the tubing.

A threaded hose coupling rounds out the robust pump which is suitable for flow rates up to 40 ml/min (at a pressure head of up to 10 m WC). Two standard versions of the SR15 with a 230 V/50 Hz motor – either Novoprene or silicone tubing – are available and in stock.

The dosing of detergents and disinfectants, for example in the chemical and medical industry, laboratory and analytical field as well as food and cleaning industry, is a typical application for this new peristaltic pump.

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.
