Sulzer Pumps launches close coupled process pump series
Pump solutions firm Sulzer Pumps has released a new series of single stage close coupled process pumps, it has announced.
Based on the design features of the existing Ahlstar range, the pump series was developed for applications in oil and gas, hydrocarbon processing, chemical, pulp and paper, general industry, power generation and water & wastewater. It uses mainly the same spare parts as Ahlstar long coupled pump which the company says helps minimise the spare part inventory costs.
The company says the pumps are designed to pump a range of liquids, including clean and slightly contaminated liquids, viscous liquids, fibrous slurries, non-fibrous slurries and liquids containing large solids. Liquids with high gas content up to 70% can also be handled, according to Sulzer.
Each pump is equipped with a range of patented features designed to minimise energy consumption and operation, maintenance, and downtime costs.
