Construction of a new handling system for quartz sand
Executing company: Quarzwerk Frechen
The pump is installed at a depth of 7 m and ends in a collecting shaft which receives the flushing water contaminated with sand. The solids content at flushing can be up to 20 % or even exceed this figure.
A pump of type KRS2-150 with agitator for pumping off the high level of sand. The integrated agitator ensures a level of swirling sufficient to ensure that the high sand concentrations can be pumped and so that the quartz sand arising cannot deposit on the floor of the shaft.
In the event of abrasive and corrosive utilization, stronger wear and tear will take place naturally in certain components. With regards to the above application wear and tear can take place mainly in impeller, agitator, suction plate, shaft sleeve, oil ring, mechanical seal, pump casing, strainer, motor casing and discharge coupling. Depending on the working conditions the lifetime of those parts might vary significantly and can be shorter than the legal warranty period.
