  • Maximising biogas production efficiency
    The biofuels sector, including biogas, is a fast growing industry because it means less reliance on fossil fuels, and it is sustainable. However, biomass is a difficult media, so has to be broken down to allow pumping to take place efficiently and to maximize biogas production. Harald Vogelsang explains.


Vogelsang presents pump technology for paint industry

German pump manufacturer, Hugo Vogelsang Maschinenbau GmbH, will showcase its heavy-duty rotary lobe pumps for the chemical paint industry at the European Coatings Show in Nuremberg from 4 – 6 April.

Pumps that are used to pump paint, adhesives and similar chemicals have to satisfy high requirements. To pump viscous or abrasive fluids, or fluids with high solids content, the industry needs highly developed technology. The company says it offers pumps that are both heavy-duty and easy to maintain, providing customized solutions suitable for every application.
IQ rotary lobe pump for paints
In the rotary lobe pumps of the IQ series, all parts that come into contact with the pumped media, such as the pump cover, pump housing and connectors, are made from stainless steel and are therefore resistant to aggressive fluids. The lobes can be made from a variety of materials (elastomeric coating, solid stainless steel or polyurethane), depending on the properties of the pumped media. The fluid buffer is integrated as a standard feature preventing dry running of the pump while at the same time increasing its suction capacity.
The pump chamber on the IQ series consists of one centrally located part and can be dismounted in a few easy steps. This allows on-site access to the pumping elements for servicing and maintenance work while the pump itself remains securely screwed into the pipe. The number of essential spare parts has been halved resulting in a significant reduction in cost and time required to replace wear parts.
VX series – rotary lobe pump for media with high foreign matter content
The pumps of the VX series are reliable in abrasive and viscous media with high foreign matter content, such as paints, sealants, adhesives and similar chemicals. Their design makes them robust and easy to maintain. They also have good priming properties and are resistant to dry running. The flow direction of these pumps can be reversed in order for containers and tanks to be filled and emptied. Pulsation-free HiFlo rotary lobes ensure gentle pumping and work well for media and substances that are sensitive to shearing forces.
Pumps of the VX series reliably pump paints, sealants, adhesives, and similar chemicals.
Vogelsang will be at the European Coatings Show, Nuremberg exhibition center, Hall 5, Booth 5-421 from 4 – 6 April 2017.
