The second largest order in the company’s history, with a volume of around 1.4 million, was placed with the special centrifugal pump manufacturer Bungartz. For the new construction of a new production line for titanium tetrachloride (TiC14) in China, the contract for the production and supply of 24 MPCV dry running magnetic drive centrifugal pumps has now been signed.
With a major order for 24 MPCV magnetic drive pumps Bungartz continues its success with intrinsically safe pumps. “In these difficult times for many companies, this order is also a positive signal for the economic development in the country”, the managing director Dipl.-Ing. Frank Bungartz is pleased to say.
For the new construction of a plant with a planned output of 160,000 tons of titanium tetrachloride (TiC14), highest safety and reliability is required. The medium, which is difficult to pump, forms dangerous hydrochloric acid vapours when it comes into contact with air humidity. For about 10 years BUNGARTZ has been using the magnetically coupled pumps type MPCV for this medium. The vertical pump, in which the pump bearings and magnetic coupling work independently of the hydraulics and thus of the pumped fluid by pure physics, is safe to run dry, requires very little maintenance and is safe against operating errors. With an NPSH of almost 0m it runs cavitation-free and without requiring a minimum volume flow. The future minimum monitoring effort of the pumps and the exceptional service life of the bearings also contributed to the selection. The bearings have been proven to be in continuous operation for more than 5 years. www.bungartz.de
