Thanks to the restructuring of its pump portfolio into three clearly divided areas, the German pump manufacturer Hermetic Pumpen has geared its product range even more consistently to the market dynamics in plant construction.
The company has combined a defined selection of common single-stage and multi-stage chemical pumps in the product line “V-Line” and optimized its production and logistic processes. The result: V-Line offers modular configurable pump variants with optimized delivery times of 8 to 12 weeks for a wide range of applications. Without exception, all pumps meet the high Hermetic quality standards including the unique ZART (Zero Axial and Radial Thrust) principle. An innovative online expert tool allows configuration with just a few clicks.
Hermetic V-Line: Modular configurable canned motor pumps
The Hermetic V-Line (Variant-Line) is designed for fast, demand- and price-optimized delivery of canned motor pumps for common, predefined applications in the chemical and petrochemical industries. There is a choice of single and multi-stage variants with different hydraulics, motor ratings and material versions including matching monitoring technology. The product range is suitable for application with pumping heads from 12 to 295 m, volumetric flow rates from 1.0 bis 130 m³/h, fluid temperatures from -40 °C to +120 °C, power ratings from 8 to 48 kW and pressure ratings from 16 to 40 bar. Within these parameters, many pump-motor combinations can be configured with just a few clicks using an online tool.
The V-Line pump concept follows the modular approach of plant engineering and consists of standardized assemblies. The introduction of the V-Line enabled the company to optimize production and logistics. This makes Hermetic s pump technology that has so far been used primarily in customized high-end solutions attractive for many other fields of application. With the V-Line, plant constructors, planners and process operators not only receive a canned motor pump at an attractive price. With a delivery time of 8 to 12 weeks from order, customers also benefit from short delivery times. The modular pump design also results in high spare parts availability.
Like all canned motor pumps from Hermetic, the V-Line offers the same advanced Hermetic technologies including the unique ZART (Zero Axial and Radial Thrust) principle. Without exception, all V-Line pumps meet these high quality standards.
Easy online configuration and optimization of design parameters
Planners and operators can configure or select their pumps themselves using the Hermetic expert tool which is accessible as a browser-based online tool in a protected area. To determine whether a V-Line pump is suitable, users only need to enter the most important project parameters such as operating point and pumping medium or the desired accessories. With just a few clicks and within seconds, the expert tool shows which pump is the right one. Based on the operating point and pumping media data, the expert tool also enables a real-time simulation of the pump design and thus the optimization of the design parameters. The expert tool is easy to use and offers a clear comparison of pumps based on criteria such as efficiency or motor rating. Configurations can be stored in a personal user account and retrieved at any time.
