Process Pump Test

With an investment of around 500,000 euros in a new pump test bench, the quality of the product and its development – also in the highest power range – ensures prominently. Heidelberg, February 2010. Since decades market leader in the segment low pressure diaphragm metering pumps, established prominently for several years as a provider of process pump. With an investment of around 500,000 euros in a new pump test bench, the quality of the product and its development – also in the highest power range – ensures prominently. Flexible application performance profiles and specifications be checked according to state of the art.

Pumps can also according to API 675 (American Petroleum Institute policy for oscillating displacement pumps for use in the oil, chemical and gas industries) will be tested. This ensures the process safety at the metering and conveying of combustible, toxic, solids or high-viscosity fluids. Beginning of 2011 was the new test bench for process pumps in Heidelberg in Operation taken. The test running completely in AISI 304 stainless steel consists of two independently powered test courses. Each bench is equipped with central energy supply, monitoring, as well as a supply for the experimental field. A computer built into a console is used for control and configuration of the individual components of the dynamometer. Thus, the test bench can be centrally operated. All the required parameters are monitored through an operating data acquisition system, evaluated and documented.

Range of process pumps all process pumps with the motor ratings from 0.37 to 90 kW 400V and 5.5 up to 160 kW at 690 v can be subjected to variable performance tests. The examinees are supplied for this hydraulic. The pumps a volume of water against an adjustable pressure depending on the type of pump and custom request. The measuring range for the flow ranges from 20 l / h up to 90.000 l / h with an accuracy of 0.1% of the reading over the specified range.
