Surface-mounted Pumping Station Drains Port Of Immingham Surface Water Problems

2016-03-15 06:56:55

Like many industrial sites that contain large areas of open space, surface water build up can prove to be a problem.  At the Port of Immingham surface water has always been removed from the 1,230 acre site via by a tidal flap (valve) that drained water from a series of inter-connecting chambers and discharge pit directly into the Humber Estuary. However, recurrent blockages ABP’s engineers were keen to find a permanent solution to the problem.

New Submersible Bedford Pumps Installed at Stillingfleet Surface Water Pumping Station

2015-10-22 05:02:53

Working on behalf of the Ouse & Derwent Internal Drainage Board, pump supplier AxFlow has installed two new submersible Bedford pumps at the Stillingfleet Surface Water Pumping Station.  The two pumps removed from service are also being overhauled.  The purpose of the pumping station is to lift surface water which can no longer drain by gravity into the nearby beck because mining subsidence has lowered the surface ground level.  The pumping station was constructed by the British Coal Corporation in the early 1990’s as part of its mining remediation plans.

AOD/AODD Pumps

AOD/AODD Pumps

The Air Operated Double Diaphragm Pump (AODD) is a double acting positive displacement diaphragm pump. The pump displaces fluid from one of its two liquid chambers upon each stroke completion.

Air Operated double diaphragm pumps are widely used for their simple, portable construction. The AODD Pump was originally designed by Jim Wilden in 1955 and has since undergone decades of development.

Air Operated Diaphragm pumps are employed in a host of difficult fluid transfer applications ranging from circulation duty in cleanroom environments to municipal sludge pumping. AOD Pumps are intrinsically safe by design, offering a wide range of material and elastomer options, giving you the optimum solution for your process.

AxFlow UK has a wide range of Air Operated Double Diaphragm pumps from Wilden and Almatec.

Eccentric disc pump

Eccentric disc pump

The Blackmer Eccentric disc pump - Mouvex Technology, is used in an array of applications across the globe. It has many unique features giving it many advantages over competing pump lines. There are no mechanical seals thus eliminating leaks and reducing maintenance time. The eccentric disc pumps are direct coupled to the gear reduction unit or motor therefore eliminating the need for magnets. With its clean-in-place capability, flushing and cleaning take place without disassembly.

The Mouvex  eccentric disc pump consists of a cylinder and a pumping element mounted on an eccentric shaft. As the eccentric shaft rotates, the pumping element creates chambers with the cylinder. This has the effect of increasing the size of the intake port and drawing fluid into the pumping chamber. The fluid is transported to the discharge port where the size of the pumping chamber decreases. The action squeezes the fluid out into the discharge pipe work. However, its action is far more sensitive making it ideally suited to applications where shear and potential leakage are major issues.

With the recommendation of the EHEDG(European Hygenic Equipment Design Group) and a 3A approval certification the stainless steel models are ideal for sanitary applications.

Gear Pumps

Gear Pumps

AxFlow represents several manufacturers of Gear Pumps in the UK. These range from Precision gear pumps, as used in the fibre industry (Slack & parr) to large, specialist Alloy pumps with high containment for toxic slurries (Lederle-Hermetic).

External gear pumps are positive displacement pumps that cover a wide range of applications.  In external gear pumps two counterrotating gears of equalsize are enclosed in the casing. The gears transmit the torque as well as the fluid. The fluid is transferred in the chambers between the gear teeth by counter rotation of the shafts from suction to discharge side.

Gear Pumps can be applied in chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical and paint industries as well as in general industry.

Our ranges of Gear Pumps offer sealing by gland packing, single mech seal, double mech seal, mag drive and canned motor.

The Gear pump manufactureres thay AxFlow represent in the UK include:

Eco Gearchem for transfer and dosing of general industrial fluids.

Isochem Mag-drive for high containment for transfer and dosing of general industrial fluids.

Eclipse Non-metallic, mag drive gear pump

Slack & Parr Precision gear pumps

Envirogear Magnetically couped Internal gear pumps

Lederle-Hermetic, Special materials and high containment gear pumps

Metering Pumps

Metering Pumps

Metering pumps contain special adaptations of the conventional reciprocating pump, which are designed primarily to transfer liquid at an accurately controlled rate. Metering Pumps differ in that the pumping rates can be varied by changing the effective stroke length and changing the speed. Metering pumps flow rates can be predetermined accurately, with repeatable flows maintained consistently (Typically within + / - 1%)

AxFlow represents the Pulsafeeder, and OBL metering pump in the UK.

Peristaltic Pumps

Peristaltic Pumps

The simplicity of the hose pump provides a number of advantages. The hose can be made from any of a variety of materials. The pump rotor exerts pressure on a set of rollers or shoes which compress the hose.
This forms a vacuum drawing fluid into the hose while the next roller or shoe gently pushes the fluid forward. Pump wear is limited virtually to the hose which is quick and inexpensive to replace in situ.
AxFlow UK represents the realax Peristaltic pumps

Piston Pumps

Piston Pumps

A Plunger pump has a reciprocating plunger. This Plunger is connected to cross head, which in turn connects to a crank shaft which provides the reciprocating action. As the Plunger stokes back, the fluid is pulled into the cylinder through an inlet check valve. As the plunger reciprocates to its foward stroke, the inlet valve closed and the liquid is forced out of the discharge check valve.

The Plunger reciprocates inside a stuffing box, which is typically fitted with rings of packing to seal plunger. A Piston differs from a Plunger, as the packings or seal if fitted to the piston and reciprocates with it inside a sleeve/cup.

This Piston and Plunger pumps provide a pumping solution which lends itself to typically low flow, high pressure applciations.

FMC Simplex, Duplex, Triplex and Quintuplex Plunger pumps and piston pumps are available in the UK from AxFlow

Rotary Lobe/Circumferential Pumps

Rotary Lobe/Circumferential Pumps

Rotay Lobe and Circumferential Piston Pumps are equipped with lobes or rotors which are driven by external timing gears to rotate in opposite directions.

The motion of the rotors create an expanding cavity on the inlet side, allowing the fluid to flow into the pump chamber. The rotors then carry the fluid around the pump body to the outlet side where it is forced out of the pump as the cavity contracts. 

The Waukesha External Circumferential Piston pump (ECP), is equipped with winged rotors (Pistons). The long sealing path of the rotor reduces slippage and offers gentle handling of particulates. This design of rotor lends itself to products which require gentle handling, low viscosity, high viscosity and also abrasive.

Rotary vane pumps

Rotary vane pumps

Sliding Vane pumps have a number of vanes that are free to slide into or out of slots in the pump rotor. When the pump driver turns the rotor, centrifugal force, push rods, and/or pressurized fluid causes the vanes to move outward in their slots and bear against the inner bore of the pump casing forming pumping chambers.

As the rotor revolves, fluid flows into the area between the vanes (pumping cambers) when they pass the suction port. This fluid is transported around the pump casing until the discharge port is reached. At this point the fluid is squeezed out into the discharge piping.

Several Blackmer Sliding Vane pump models are equipped with replaceable liners and end disks. They protect the pump casings and offer the economy of simple replacment, restoring the pump to like-new efficiency, should the liner ever show significant wearVanes are actuated by three forces: 1 Centrifugal force from the rotor’s rotation, 2 push rods moving between opposing pairs of vanes, and 3 liquid pressure entering through the vane grooves and acting on the rear of the vanes. Each revolution of a Blackmer  Sliding vane pump displaces a constant volume of fluid. Variance in pressure has minimal effect. Energy-wasting turbulence and slippage are minimised and high volumetric efficiency is maintained.

Vane Replacement when necessary is easy. Simply remove the outer head, slide out the old vanes, insert the new ones, and reinstall the head. In a metter of minutes, your pump is back in operation. Routine inspection is equally as easy.
 
The Sliding Vane pump design lends itself to a wide range of applications from pumping Bitchumen to offloading fuels and helicopter refueling.
A variety of sealing options and materials of constructiona re available to suit the application.
