With a declared concentrate on energy-efficient programs and elements that optimise the operation of current biogas vegetation and contribute to a better gasoline yield, Vogelsang is launching the HiCone, a brand new progressive cavity pump to be used in biogas vegetation, on the World Biogas Expo on twenty ninth and thirtieth March.
Reportedly developed to avoid wasting vitality and lengthen service life, the HiCone pump incorporates a conical kind mixed with an revolutionary setting not used earlier than, says Vogelsang.
The German engineering agency will probably be demonstrating a mannequin of the brand new HiCone pump on stand D301 through the two-day exhibition.
Jonathan Gutteridge, Managing Director for Vogelsang UK, stated the agency was “setting requirements for progressive cavity pumps.”
The principle advantages of the HiCone are stated to be a decrease electrical energy requirement and an automated start-up, and its capability to readjust, decreasing the necessity for alternative components.
Jonathan added: “One other benefit for customers is that they will view the standing of the pumping parts in a real-time show. As a substitute of being shocked by a sudden failure, they will obtain steady info and plan for components prematurely.
“Our prospects want know-how that’s long-lasting and could be flexibly tailored to differing pumping duties and working parameters. The HiCone provides them a extremely environment friendly pump, which could be individually adjusted and readjusted.”
The HiCone progressive cavity pump with its “revolutionary adjustment system”, is introduced as providing decreased life cycle prices due to its lengthy service life and decrease vitality necessities.
“The clamping between the rotor and stator could be adjusted through the pump’s complete service life on the contact of a button or from the management room on the click on of a mouse. It may be rapidly and simply tailored to completely different pumping duties and altering working parameters resembling stress, viscosity or temperature, and could be decreased to the minimal required degree.”
“This implies a service life that’s 2 to three instances longer and most effectivity with minimal energy consumption. Jonathan stated: “We now have developed a revolutionary, patent-pending adjustment system that was not beforehand obtainable available on the market on this kind. This as soon as once more underscores our innovation management in pump know-how.”
Decrease energy consumption by clever start-up automation
As well as, says the agency, the very excessive energy consumption that normally happens with progressive cavity pumps when beginning up the pump, is decreased to a minimal by an clever automated start-up system. This will increase vitality effectivity, particularly for brief pumping cycles. On the identical time, this additionally reduces the prices for the ability electronics.
Vogelsang has developed this revolutionary adjustment idea for all 4 sizes of the HiCone sequence. Which means that the system could be put in in progressive cavity pumps even with excessive circulate charges of as much as 290 cubic meters per hour. In consequence, for the primary time ever, it’s attainable to individually modify and readjust the pump for a lot of purposes within the biogas sector.
