Pumps, Pipes & Valves
The Estigia type series pump extends the KSB SE & Co. KGaA, Frankenthal, product portfolio for the chemical and petrochemical industries and other applications. The low-pressure suspended pumps are designed for vertical wet installation in a closed tank under atmospheric pressure. For the installation depth, various lengths ranging from a minimum of 852 mm to a maximum of 6402 mm are available and three discharge pipe diameters can be selected for each pump size.
Houston, Texas – By eliminating one of the most common causes of fluid end failure — fatigue cracking at the intersection of the bores — new Cat Cube Bore well stimulation technology extends block life by 50 percent or more. Available exclusively from Caterpillar, this innovative geometry significantly reduces the downtime and costs associated with fluid end replacement.
To round off its existing range of butterfly valves, the KSB Group has launched the new Aporis double-offset butterfly valve with elastomer sealing element. This product is used for applications where huge volumes of water need to be transported and shut off reliably. Applications include systems for water transport, water treatment or in large industrial cooling circuits.
Vortec introduces Spray Nozzles for ultra-fine droplet-sized sprays ideal for evaporative cooling. Superior to conventional hydraulic and piezoelectric nozzles, spray nozzles atomize the liquid stream by high velocity compressed air to create a range of 20-200 micron-size spray droplets, resulting in greater surface coverage than conventional nozzles.
