SRZS Side Channel Pump in CO Design
The SRZS...CO side channel pump provides full performance and highest levels of reliable long-term operation, even with very small abrasive particles in the flow. (Image source: SERO PumpSystems GmbH):
The SRZS brand stands for a comprehensive series of self-priming side channel pumps with extremely low NPSH requirements for industrial applications. The new SRZS...CO (Crude Oil) version for media containing very small particles is an ideal complement to the already proven variants for crude oil transport and for applications with minor particle contents.
Special design to ensure protection against wear
In order to achieve increased tolerance to small particles entering the pump and to prevent the risk of material erosion and excessive wear in the pump, all hydraulic components of SERO’s SRZS...CO have been designed to be particularly resistant to abrasion. For example, the shafts were coated at the bearing points and hardened in special processes. Like the mechanical seals, the bearing bushings are made of silicon carbide (SiC) and are highly resistant to abrasion. The wear plates provided in the pump stages are made of highly resistant PEEK to protect the hydraulics from mechanical wear. These measures ensure long-lasting and reliable operation of the SRZ...CO, for example, when conveying crude oil from tanks in pipelines, in the chemical industry or in refinery applications.
No problems with gas entrainments in the pumped medium
The SRZS...CO is not only capable of handling very small particles, This pump hydraulic design also allows gas entrainments in the liquid without affecting the pump’s efficiency: even in the case of low boiling media with a rapid phase transition from liquid to gas, the SRZS…CO keeps generating the full capacity without interrupting the flow.
Flow rates up to 42 m³/h, delivery heads up to 550 m, a temperature range from - 20 °C to +65 °C, NPSH values from 0.35 m and, in addition, tolerance to particles and gas formation in the medium - the side channel pumps of the SRZS series are convincing all-rounders for industrial and process engineering applications.
