  • Advanced hollow fiber UF membranes improve performance in tertiary water treatment
    Growing global demand for clean water and increasing environmental concerns make membrane filtration the technology of choice for municipalities and industries seeking to reuse wastewater and reduce their water footprint. But how is the technology developing in this field?
  • Advanced Conversion: Maximising the Potential for Energy from Waste
    One of the most readily-available and viable solutions to help address the challenge of our growing energy needs is Energy-from-Waste (EfW) – which has the potential to take a multitude of waste streams (such as municipal solid waste) and convert them into energy. We look at how modern techniques can make the technology more efficient.

  • Thermal fluids at the centre of consumer safety
    Safety is an important factor when choosing a heat transfer fluid as a heat source for food and drink processing plants. The fluids need to be suitable for incidental contact and not present a significant risk to consumers. This article discusses the importance of the chosen heat transfer fluid in relation to the food supply chain.
  • Food and drink sector considers exhaust air quality
    While there are stringent standards regulating the quality and specification of compressed air applications in the food and beverage production sector, there are no equivalent standards in place for exhaust air quality from vacuum pumps. Here, we look at the best way of managing exhaust air quality from vacuum pumps.
  • Dry vacuum technology in heat treatment processes Dry vacuum technology in heat treatment processes
    Vacuum technology is an indispensable part of metal heat treatment. Vakuum-Härterei Petter GmbH (VHP) conducted an evaluation in which an oil lubricated rotary vane vacuum pump was replaced by a Busch COBRA NX screw vacuum pump. After a year of testing VHP is completely convinced by dry screw vacuum technology, and in future will invest only in ovens equipped with COBRA NX screw vacuum pumps.
  • Getting back to basics and back to customers Getting back to basics and back to customers
    Mads Nipper has been at the helm of Grundfos for just over a year. In a short space of time he has made a significant impact on the company – one of the world’s biggest. World Pumps met up with him at Grundfos’ headquarters in Bjerringbro, Denmark to find out how they are once again putting the customer at the heart of the product.
