Lowara offer irrigation solutions

09.02.2001

A new feature is that the Lowara SV pump coupled with a Hydrovar variable speed drive can aid the irrigation designer by now accepting 2 simultaneous inputs.

These inputs can either be 0-10 Volts or 4-20 mA and can work in two ways:

1) By determining a new operating pressure

2) Modifying the pressure incrementally as the system changes

It is normal practice that in irrigation systems they are split into zones, these zones can be in many metres apart and therefore need the pump to operate at different pressures to compensate for varying pipework lengths. Another scenario is that dependant upon the plants being propagated, there may be needs of different water capacities and pressures, by utilising this new function then the pump will operate at two different pressures and satisfy the users needs.

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.

Safe and efficient DESMI mag-drive centrifugal pumps enable leakage-free methanol fuel systems for ships, reducing vessel carbon emissions and climate impact. With every year that passes, emission regulations tighten in the shipping industry. Shipowners who want to stay in business need to look for ways of reducing carbon emissions to comply with the targets defined in the IMO GHG Strategy and other regulations.
