Le pompe per tubo apicale riducono i requisiti di manutenzione presso Amstead Rail

APEX hose pump

A new APEX35 hose pump from Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group is proving that it can deliver significantly reduced maintenance requirements at the world’s largest manufacturer of freight carriage components, Amsted Rail. Put to the test in a process-critical abrasive slurry transfer operation, the trial has demonstrated that in comparison with existing air operated diaphragm pumps, the Bredel APEX35 can extend the time between scheduled maintenance intervals dramatically at this important producer of rail side frames and bolsters.

Scott Schuette, Amsted Rail’s Engineering Manager had worked with Bredel hose pumps in the past at Elementis Pigments, and brought his confidence in the technology to Amsted Rail.

La nuova pompa offre un risparmio sui costi
Kurt Krummrich, Industrial Sales Manager at Watson-Marlow Pumps Group explains, “Amsted Rail has used air-operated diaphragm [AOD] pumps in this particular process for many years. Scott”s willingness to try something new, coupled with our discussion that maintenance cost savings could be achieved by installing the new APEX35, got our foot in the door.”

Perfettamente adatto alla manipolazione abrasiva
Quando si maneggiano sostanze abrasive come l'impasto liquido di lavaggio, un importante vantaggio delle pompe per tubi flessibili APEX è che non hanno componenti di usura costosi come guarnizioni, valvole, membrane, statori, rotori o ghiandole da mantenere. Le pompe sono anche autoadescanti e a secco.

Significativamente ridotti costi di manutenzione
La pompa per tubi flessibili APEX35 Bredel ha sostituito una pompa AOD su uno dei serbatoi di immersione, funzionando con aspirazione allagata e praticamente senza pressione.

Mentre le pompe AOD devono essere sottoposte a manutenzione ogni due settimane, la pompa per tubi APEX35 ha funzionato ininterrottamente per dieci settimane prima di eseguire qualsiasi intervento di manutenzione.

In addition to the significantly longer uptime periods, when maintenance of the APEX pump is required, additional savings are apparent as it takes less than 50% of the time needed to reinstate the AOD pump to operating condition, with only a single replacement part required – the precision machined hose element.

Risparmio sui costi energetici
Although the AOD pumps have been in use for many years, Mr Schuette”s aims for the future are to choose pumps that not only reduce maintenance and downtime, but also that do not require compressed air for their operation.

Insomma
The benefits of the APEX pumps” increased uptime and process continuity at Amsted Rail are clear, and the company can look forward to substantial savings in labour and parts, with a greatly decreased cost of ownership.
