Typical applications for industrial pumps
Process engineering / Process technology
Pumps are required in various areas of process engineering. This includes distillation, mixing and stirring processes. By conveying chemical media, they take on transfer tasks as well as dosing tasks. Feed pumps and dosing pumps are faced with a wide variety of challenges. The chemical industry often has high requirements in terms of abrasive substances, corrosive media, explosive or environmentally hazardous liquids. In addition to pure chemical resistance, other regulations in the sense of ATEX and/or TA-LUFT must also be observed. High and low temperatures also place special demands on the construction and design of positive displacement and centrifugal pumps. Plant-specific features such as process-related low NPSH values also require a precise examination of the pump design in close consultation with the engineering, production engineer or plant builder. As German manufacturers of specialized, customer and application-specific pump technology, the BRIDGE Industry Consulting pump partners are experts in these topics.
Oil & Gas / Petrochemicals
When it comes to pumping hydrocarbons on and offshore, the petrochemical industry makes extremely high demands and sometimes has its own regulations such as the API regulations for pump manufacturers. Typical transfer tasks are, for example, filling or emptying tank farms, pumping over or feeding a downstream process. But also dosing of additives, chemicals as well as the promotion of residues for recycling or disposal. Here, too, particular attention is paid to explosion protection according to ATEX and consideration of environmental conditions such as marine suitability
Polymerisation processes play a major role in the field of chemistry; they form the starting product for many downstream processes. Here, too, toxic media are sometimes used, which have to be pumped either with high or low viscosity. Whether pumping raw materials or plastic melts, each task requires individual pump technology that meets the respective requirements. Both processes for new products and future-oriented recycling processes such as pyrolysis plants are served.
Water treatment / waste water treatment
Water treatment and wastewater treatment are in many parts similar processes, but water treatment is usually presented as a subsequent process, with wastewater treatment usually being at the end of a process chain. In most cases, substances are to be separated, impurities removed, or additives added until the desired quality is achieved. In both cases, various options for filtering and promoting the media are available. The BRIDGE Industry Consulting Partners have a wide variety of options to meet the respective requirements of the pumps and filters with optimal equipment. In addition to the exact design to meet the desired conveying parameters, other issues are often relevant here, such as chemical resistance, sealing technology, abrasion resistance and energy efficiency. A variety of materials, designs and conveying principles help to achieve the optimal solution in terms of economy and ecological responsibility. Various sewage pumps as well as pumps for pure media are available. The materials range from plastic pumps and cast metals to solid materials made of special stainless steel.
Exhaust air cleaning
The area of exhaust air purification also requires pump technology, mostly in the form of pumps for exhaust air scrubbers, which either supply spray nozzles or lances with the necessary flow rate and delivery pressure, or add chemicals, as well as pump out waste water or circulate it for filtration. The right choice of material is just as important as the appropriate design and selection of the pump technology, e.g. in the form of the impeller geometry. In close cooperation with the respective pump manufacturer, BIRDGE Industry Consulting provides support in the optimal selection and design (e.g. installation position) of the appropriate pump technology.
Whether chemicals or polluted waste water, BRIDGE Industry Consulting and its pump partners have the right pump technology that meets the demanding tasks of the recycling industry. When supplying and disposing of liquid waste, abrasion, corrosion, high solids content, up to high temperatures and viscosities often lead to requirement profiles that standard pumps cannot meet. Here, individually adapted pump technology is required in close consultation in order to achieve the desired parameters and operational reliability. Durable pump technology pays for itself over the service life, but there is no getting around prior application-specific design. End customers as well as system planners and builders are supported with the specialist know-how of our pump experts.
Galvanic plant technology and related processes, such as chemical metal deposition, require reliable pumps and filter technology to produce perfect surfaces on metals or plastics (POP).
Paints and varnishes
Paints and varnishes, both solvent-free and with solvents, demand a lot from the right pump technology. Typical topics are gentle conveying, abrasion resistance, explosion protection, dosing accuracy and sealing technology. Even the heating inside the pump can become a crucial point with sensitive media. BRIDGE Industry Consulting supports here with its partners in the area of pump selection as well as in the choice of suitable filter technology for lump-free products and perfect surfaces.
