New Butting Store in Brazil


Since the founding of Butting Brasil in 2009 and the construction of a production location at Araquari in the state of Santa Catarina in 2014, the affiliated company of the Butting Group has been growing continuously. Recently our comprehensive range of products and services has been supplemented by a pipe store.

New Butting Store in Brazil

Since the beginning of the year, Butting Brasil has entered a new stage: in Araquari we are storing longitudinally welded stainless steel pipes made from the materials TP 304 / 304L and TP 316 / 316L in available sizes 6” (168.3 mm) to 24” (610 mm). The store is our response to rising demand. The high quality pipes are produced in Knesebeck, transported to the store and will satisfy the future demands of customers on site at short notice.

When a sales office was established in Rio de Janeiro / Brazil, an important step was taken towards a greater presence in this emerging country. Under the motto of an “Effective global network” as part of our mission statement, we can now serve the American market directly on site, thanks to our location in Brazil. Five years later, we are setting a new milestone in the most populous country in South America: setting up single-part production for spools, piping components and vessels in Araquari.

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.
