The project:

Circulation of cooling water with abrasive content for the fabrication of pipes.

Executing companies

Corus Tubes Automotives, Arnheim

Distrimex Pompen&Service BV (Tsurumi partner)

The problem:

The previous pumps were subject to frequent downtime due to extreme wear.

The solution:

Implementation of a KTZ47.5. The pump was installed "dry", i.e. it is flange-mounted directly on the pipeline without being submerged. The medium is conveyed in the pump past the motor casing and provides sufficient cooling.

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.
In this regard, please pay attention to our general terms and conditions that we also send to you by mail on request.
