Milestone at the New NETZSCH Campus

After almost two years of construction, the day finally arrived: The first pump was assembled at the NETZSCH Campus in Waldkraiburg and afterwards prepared for shipment. With the opening of assembly at the new location, the course was set for a successful corporate future: "Today is a milestone in the history of NETZSCH Pumps & Systems.

With the opening of the assembly on our new campus in Waldkraiburg, we are getting closer to our goal of operating the most efficient positive displacement pump factory in the world", explained managing director Jens Heidkötter underlining the ambitious goals.

The new NETZSCH Campus unites the three locations in Waldkraiburg. It thus makes a decisive contribution to the fact that various processes, such as logistics, can be made significantly more efficient. Therefore, besides the employees, it is above all the customers who benefit from the new plant.

In addition to these aspects, environmental protection and sustainability also played a decisive role in the planning of the new plant. Among other things, the new building will not require the use of fossil fuels. This will bring the global specialist for complex fluid management a step closer to its goal of climate neutrality by 2045.

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.
