        • Huntsman looking for a better solution

        • Huntsman Holland produces raw materials for the polyurethanes industry. Due to pump problems, the company was looking for a better solution.

          Within the five facilities there are many pumps for the transport of the various raw materials. Previously pumps with mechanical seals were used, but which in practice were problematic, says Mechanical Maintenance Engineer, René van de Vlugt. “In this case, when these pumps exhibit leakage, it is not a particularly big problem for the environment and man. The spilled material hardens immediately when it comes in contact with the atmosphere...

          A solution for this problem was found in magnetically coupled pumps from the ROTAN® ED Series. 

        • Dan-Balt A/S - Pan European Terminals PLC

        • DESMI NSL centrifugal pumps for heavy fuel oil transfer at the Dan-Balt A/S terminal in Aaberaa, Denmark.

          General Manager Hardy Olsen requested pumps for the transfer of heavy fuel oil and the technical requirements for the future pumps were:

          • 1000 m3/h at 7.5 bar
          • 0.990 kg/l
          • 400 cSt – 60oC

          DESMI’s solution was three DESMI NSL 200-415 inline centrifugal pumps with 200 kW 4-pole motors incl. frequency converters for more flexibility.

        • DESMI ROTAN® Pump in ABS Application

        • The pumping liquid is ABS, Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene, a type of rubber solution widely used in the tire industry with low energy consumption, low noise and lighter weight.

          For this project two pumps are to handle the medium “Rubber Solvent+Polystyrene+HCN” - CDEXXM-3U332, and as HCN is a very toxic medium, we supply double mechanical seal with API52 flush for these two pumps. The remaining seven pumps, handling mineral oil, are our standard stainless steel and cast iron pumps. After this phase one project, Huayi will launch another much bigger ABS project, so this could no doubt be a strategic project for DESMI ROTAN®.

        • Magnetic Driven Pumps in Molten Sulphur Service

        • Pumping Molten Sulphur is most challenging. Sulphur temperatures must be controlled within a 120-155o C range. Outside this temperature sulphur solidifies.

          Sulphur has a distinct odour and is highly corrosive in the presence of moisture. Where leakage from common packed style pumps was unacceptable, a ROTAN® magnetically driven pump unit was offered on a trial basis where the chemical is used in the production of soap and shampoo.

        • Polyurethane Foam/Isocyanate

        • Through the ages all kinds of seals have been used, from soft shaft seals to double mechanical shaft seals with DOP (dioctylphthalate) or mesamol under pressure between the seals.  The results have been very mixed, but the risk of running into problems has been so big that it can only be recom-mended to implement these so-lutions if the customer himself takes the responsibility for the solution desired.

          The only solution we can give our whole-hearted support is to use a MAGNETICALLY COU-PLED pump.

        • ROTAN® magnetically driven pumps

        • The pumps used have to be heated and have wear resistant bearings.

          Tar is often transported in ships. The pumps on board bring the tar to the storage tank from which it is pumped to the distillation towers where it is fragmented. During the process about half the tar ends up as pitch.

          This looks like a simple system but there are lots of details that have to be correct to avoid damage to the pumps. Koppers Denmark A/S are specialists in constructing pitch systems where ROTAN® magnetically driven pumps with bearings in solid tungsten carbide are used.

        • Pump Geared for Thin Film Evaporator

        • The pumps are used to transfer the highly purified liquids from film evaporator. Liquids could be lactic acid, fluid vitamin, vegetable oil or poly-glycol, kind of liquid fibre.  Normally pump construction is CD26 with mechanical seal running at 500 rpm under differential pressure of 3~5 bar.  The pumps are used with gearbox or equipped with Varied Frequency Driven motor.

          The liquid container is under high vacuum with evaporation distillation working on top, and the gear pump shall run at low speed to bring the NPSHr down to a level below NPSHa from the system. This is majorly determined by the installation height difference (liquid flow down by self-gravity).

          This is already the fifth time that Hexiang (the Thin Film Evaporator manufacturer)  recommend the customers to choose or use DESMI ROTAN® gear pump, and we are glad to see this kind of strategic partnership bloom and grow.

        • The reliable solution for unsaturated Polyester Resin

        • Rotan Pumpengesellschaft GmbH built a test pump by means of standard parts from the CD + HD/PD pump ranges with stuffing box plus 2 special, machined parts as well as 2 special shaft seal rings and a ground rotor shaft coated with tungsten carbide at the shaft seal area. The pump was equipped with a short suction pipe from the seal housing to the suction side of the valve.

          This pump, named CD81ERFT, code 3U22PAL, No. 268285, has been in intermittent duty for approx. 3-4 hours a day since the beginning of February 1997, 136 RPM x 5 bar x approx. 4000 cSt, without leakage.
