The optimized flow path of the cast Y-pattern bodies makes for excellent zeta values and low pressure losses across the valves. These properties, in turn, contribute to improving the energy efficiency of heat transfer systems.

The double-walled bellows welded to the yoke / bonnet assembly together with the back-up gland packing and the fully confined bonnet gasket ensure reliable sealing to atmosphere and leakage-free operation.

All NORI 40 valves are standard equipped with position indicator, locking device and travel stop, allowing comfort-able valve operation. As every valve up to size DN 100 features a standard throttling plug, the same valve type can be used for both shut-off and throttling functions, reducing costs for spare parts and stock keeping.

The bodies used for the strainers are the same as those used for the valves. Both are provided with drain plugs as standard. An optional magnetic insert ensures metal particles such as scale are filtered out, thus protecting expensive mag-drive pumps from damage.

The NORI-40 heat transfer valves are available with weld ends or flanges and comply with the European Pressure Equipment Directive. The max. pressure class is 40 bar. The permissible maximum temperature is 450°C.

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.
