Sulzer Launches IEC Motor Compatible CPE Process Pump

17.12.2021
A few years ago, Sulzer launched the energy-efficient CPE ANSI (American National Standards Institute) centrifugal pump range. Now, responding to market demand, Sulzer provides an IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) motor compatible pump range.

The CPE process pump is designed for a variety of industrial applications, such as clean or slightly contaminated liquids, viscous liquids, and fibrous slurries. It meets the requirements of ASME B73.1 (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) applied to chemical processes. A heating jacket option is available for applications that require a specific temperature to enable smooth pumping operation.

Today, there is a global demand for CPE pumps. Therefore, Sulzer extended the pump range with IEC compatibility that features IEC motors, base plates, and couplings. The CPE pumps are manufactured in the US, Finland, and China for best global availability.

The CPE pump with an IEC motor is a strong alternative if there is a need for a process pump with higher pressure or temperature than an ISO5199 pump can reach. It offers the highest efficiency in the ANSI pump market. For customers, this means substantial savings in the total cost of ownership (TCO) and a reduced environmental footprint.

“We are happy that we can also offer the CPE pump in countries where IEC motors are required. This pump is the best fit for a wide range of industrial applications and a welcome addition to our process pump portfolio,” says Jouni Lehtinen, Head of Sales at Sulzer.

After years of changing new casings and propellers every three months to their process pump, a metal industry operator switched their worn-out pump to one of Sulzer’s EMW slurry pumps at their melt shop. The client considered the change a leap forward in their slurry pumping technology since the maintenance interval grew significantly, pump efficiency improved, and the change reduced power consumption.

Condensate Pumps Retrofitted by Sulzer Offer Fourfold Improvement in MTBF

Operators of offshore platforms are very focused on the reliability of their equipment. Working in such a remote location means that major repairs, if not carefully planned, can result in extended downtime and loss of production. For one platform in Malaysia, a change in output was shortly followed by an increased rate of seal failures on the condensate pumps – an issue that was effectively resolved with a Sulzer retrofit, through their OEM-X line service.
