Strategic importance of the NOTOS multi screw pump plant
The new plant site comprises a 5,700 square meter industrial building, a 1.800 square meter administration building and plenty of parking spaces. The new NOTOS plant plays a central role in NETZSCH's strategic orientation. It will be used to produce and supply the global market with high-qualitymulti screw pumps specially designed for demanding applications. In addition, the new factory will expand production capacity for other product lines at the existing site in Pomerode. In addition to multi screw pumps, the portfolio also includes progressing cavity pumps, rotary lobe pumps, peristaltic pumps and grinding systems. This means we can always find a customised and sophisticated pump solution for your application. “Thanks to the new NOTOS multi screw pump plant, we will significantly increase our production capacity in Brazil. Our customers will benefit from even more powerful pumps and shorter delivery times in the future”, says Osvaldo Ferreira, managing director of NETZSCH do Brasil.

New plant enables higher capacity and more powerful pumps
The current production of multi screw pumps is designed for pump sizes of up to 1000 kilowatts. In the future, up to 2000 kilowatts will be possible. The demand for multi screw pumps with powerful performance is exceptionally high in the oil and gas sector. “The NOTOS plant will be the global flagship for the multi screw pump production in the entire NETZSCH Group and will enable us to tap into new markets”, says Ferreira proudly. However, the new plant in Brazil is not only setting new standards in terms of production capacity. New paths have also been taken regarding sustainability and efficiency, true to the motto green across the company colours. In addition, the opening of the NOTOS plant is not only a benefit for NETZSCH but also for the entire Pomerode site and its surroundings. The plant's construction has created almost 90 new jobs in the region.

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.
