The FLEXCORE series
FLEXCORE is the first series pump capable of adapting to a wide range of installation situations with a single basic casing for all pressure levels, flow directions and standards.
It is applicable in tough applications such as power and energy, marine, chemical and petrochemical applications.
Philipp Rossow, product manager at Germany based Leistritz Pumpen, said that as a specialist for demanding pump solutions the company had a very clear focus.
He said: “We want to optimally meet the specific expectations and needs of our customers with extraordinary products and solutions. With FLEXCORE, Leistritz has now created a globally groundbreaking innovation – a pump class that for the first time unites qualitative, functional and economic aspects in an extremely flexible, quickly available series product.
“It has intelligent design with the exchangeable cartridge unit is particularly impressive when it comes to installation and maintenance. Compared to conventional pumps, this modular concept is worldwide unique.”
Initially, Leistritz is launching pump sizes for flow rates of 7 - 564 l/min. The series will successively be expanded by eight additional sizes with flow rates up to 1,600 l/min. Depending on customer requirements, FLEXCORE is available in cast iron or steel casing.
The split FLEXCORE casing consists of a suction and pressure part and can be rotated four times by 90°. The alignment of the optimum flange position makes the FLEXCORE extremely adaptable for installation – even in existing piping layouts. In addition and depending on the application, different flange designs are possible - DIN, ASME or SAE.
“The cartridge unit of the FLEXCORE is the heart of this pump,” said Rossow.
