CASE STUDY #3
Hardening plant used that time 2 Speck pump for pumping methanol for one of the process. Tank where they are keeping methanol is located outside of the plant exposed to all weather changes and yearly seasons. They faced with a problem specially in the summer when outside temperature increase and also sun shining strong.
In this time increased temparature in the tank and methanol start to became in the vapor. With this physical process pumps became to the problem because of low NPSH and every summer broke. Costumer started looking for solution and finaly they found pump manufacturer M PUMPS PROCESS which can give them proper solution
M Pumps solution
M Pumps Process has in his product range pump SC MAG M which canhandle NPSHa as low as 0,5 m.
The particular design of the hydraulyc allows to handle liquids close to boiling point. Pump can handle up to 50% of gas in the liquid.
M Pumps Process recommended to costumer side channel pump SC MAG M 20 / 4S.
SC MAG-M pump series are heavy duty side channel pumps, designed specifically for clean chemical
process, low boiling and highly volatile, explosive and dangerous liquids.
This pump range puts a milestone on side channel pump history, as it is the first API design made.
That this pump range is not a common side channel pump range, is visible at a glance, as the
pumps do not respect the outline imposed by EN 734.
Dimensions and working space around suction and discharge nozzles have been designed to allow
the best condition for installation and maintenance.
A strong barrel construction has been adopted to increase operative safety in any condition, as
these pumps are usually used in ATEX classified areas, for pumping dangerous and aggressive to
the environment liquids.
SC MAG-M pumps are applied in the chemical and petrochemical industry, in the surface finishing
and hardening, in the pharmaceutical industry, in the plastic and rubber industry, in the air
conditioning and refrigeration engineering and in the food, beverage and tobacco industry.
