Polymer solutions to improve the efficiency of water systems

25 September, 2015

Fluid handling equipment may suffer from multiple problems including physical and mechanical damage as well as general or localised erosion and corrosion. These problems are linked to decreased efficiency and poor performance, leading to increasing operational costs. Minimising performance deterioration is therefore an important factor for pump manufacturers and end users. Indeed, hydraulic losses account for most of the efficiency decrease (9 per cent for a mixed flow pump to 20 per cent for radial flow). Coating technology can help in decreasing these losses, increasing the pump’s performance and reducing operational costs.

Quick, safe and accurate control of heavy loads in motion

28 August, 2015

SPX Power Team has developed a PLC synchronised lifting and lowering Motion Control System (MCS) to reduce the risk of bending, twisting or tilting when lifting heavy loads in motion. When a large object is moved, stresses are placed on the object due to uneven weight distribution or load-shifts between the lift points. If the mover is not careful, the object can bend or twist creating a stress riser that can cause hundreds of thousands - or in the worst cases - millions of dollars in damage.
