[post_content] => The role of pump manufacturers around the globe has become more challenging in recent years. Industrial users are demanding higher flow rates, with efficiency, safety and environmental protection as standard. That has led pump manufacturers to develop new products. One of those manufacturers, Switzerland-based CP Pumpen, has launched a new, high-volume pump to its well established MKP range of sealless magnetic drive pumps.
The new MKP 300-250-315, launched in March, provides flow rates of up to 1,200 m³/h with differential heads of up to 50 metres. Sealless pumps are ideal for hazardous and aggressive media, as they are completely leak-free and can even handle media containing solids. They offer plant engineering contractors and operators the highest operational safety, low maintenance and adherence to strict environmental standards.
QUALITY AND SAFETY
Magnetic drive pumps are widely seen as displacing centrifugal pumps with a double mechanical seal as they are a more cost-effective solution for hard-to-seal applications and the handling of hazardous, volatile and aggressive chemicals, CP Pumpen says. The use of a mechanical seal does not ensure complete sealing, meaning leakage of one gram per hour is regarded as normal. This of course leads to inefficiency, lost revenues and environmental hazards.
The intelligent modular system of CP’s pumps simplifies assembly and lowers costs for spare parts, maintenance and service to a minimum. The pumps are available with various options and monitoring capabilities that can be adjusted to meet individual customer specifications.
Furthermore, the MKP pumps can handle fluids containing solids in concentrations up to 30 per cent and a particle size of 1 mm, allowing for a greatly diversified range of uses. The single, centrally located impeller bearing assembly, which receives optimum lubrication and cooling by the provided fluid, enables the handling of solid laden and low-boiling liquids. The MKP’s compact design ensures a short heating time and even distribution preventing cold zones.
There are several important challenges that can occur during pump operation, including malfunction, chemical resistance, leakage and hygienic cleanness. Working with a well-established and experienced manufacturer can help reduce the likelihood of these happening, CP says.
CP is a Swiss precision engineering company founded in 1948 and known for producing zero-leakage magnetic drive pumps. It has a strong and wide-ranging history regarding the research, development and manufacturing of chemical process pumps. CP produces magnetic drive pumps for a wide variety of customers around the world, including to those in the chemical, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, food and beverage, and pulp and paper industries.
Working with a network of representatives in more than 40 countries, CP offers first-class advice and customer service around the world. CP has a deep commitment to energy efficient products and services, delivering environmentally friendly solutions with maximum safety and economy.
