Wilo Salmson is launching two new pumps for solar heating systems, the Wilo-Star ST 15 and Wilo-Star ST 25. Designed for LowFlow and HighFlow solar heating systems respectively, the new pumps are being launched in the UK following proven success in Germany, where they are employed in both domestic and commercial applications.

Wilo-Star ST 25 features a cast iron body and fibre reinforced PP impeller to meet the demands of HighFlow systems.

Both models have low energy consumption, low noise level and are constructed of corrosion resistant materials to enhance performance and provide a level of output not usually associated with such compact mechanisms.

It is hoped the pumps will prove to be as popular in the UK as they are in Germany, particularly in light of government legislation designed to encourage the use of environmentally friendly methods of heating such as low noise solar systems that offer minimal energy consumption.

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.
