A breakthrough in pump design is helping a leading specialty chemicals producer save thousands of euros spent on replacing broken equipment which was not up to the job of conveying natural waxes.
Wacker Chemie operates alone in the Burghausen/Germany works some 16,000 continuous-flow machines, including about 750 lined Richter pumps. At the Business Unit “Acetyls”, in Burghausen/Germany a PFA/PTFE lined magnetic drive pump
The better is the enemy of the good: Thanks to design refinements and targeted optimization of individual material properties, plastic-lined magnetic drive pumps have evolved to become a technical alternative to pumps made of expensive special materials and are conquering new application possibilities.
The use of emission-free pumps is mandatory for many applications in the chemical industry (key word: such as Clean Air Act German “TA-Luft”). Conventional mechanical seal pumps will then have to be replaced.
Richter Chemie‐Technik GmbH, a global leader in lined pump and valve solutions, has introduced a newly designed TE/F tank bottom valve, the first ball‐valve technology based lined foot valve completed with the NKS‐T lined butterfly valve.
Centrifugal pumps are used in various applications to transfer fluids. A safe operation of the centrifugal pump guarantees high system availability for the operator and thus a high efficiency for its production.
In June, Richter presented a $5,000 check to Bunter Kreis e.V., a nonprofit organization supporting families with pretermature, terminally ill and disabled children in Germany’s Niederrhein and Western Ruhrgebiet regions.
In late 2015, Ricther’s Sarah Krause led an initiative to support refugees fleeing from their war torn and destroyed homes. Funds raised and basic needs packages were donated to the refugee community in Kempen, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.
Richter Chemie-Technik GmbH, a market leader in fluoropolymer lined pump and valve solutions announced a new partnership with LEWA-Nikkiso America, Inc., a USA-based supplier of pump and system solutions.
