The products on display are tailored to the requirements of machine tool and metal working machine manufacturers.

The presentation focuses on Movitec VCI, a vertical, multistage centrifugal pump for handling machine tool coolants and lubricants. Other potential fields of application are for example industrial recirculation systems, cooling water circuits, washing plants and pressure boosting in general process applications.

In order to efficiently cover the largest possible range of flow rates and heads, the type series is available in five sizes which can all be supplied with different numbers of stages.

The pump sets are intended for installation on tanks, with the pump’s hydraulic system being immersed in the fluid pumped, while the motor is dry-installed. As the largest part of the pumps is inside the tank, fewer pipes and valves are needed. This design reduces costs and helps optimise suction conditions.

Hydraulically optimised stainless steel stage casings and impellers make for excellent efficiencies. This in turn keeps down energy consumption and operating costs. Furthermore, there is very little heat dissipation into the fluid pumped. Because of its compact, easy-to-replace cartridge-type mechanical seal and the automatic return of small amounts of leakage into the tank, the new Movitec VCI is very easy to maintain and has a long service life.
