NETZSCH Pumps & Systems does the triple

The NETZSCH Pumps & Systems GmbH in Waldkraiburg were granted the three certificates in accordance with OHSAS 18001, ISO 14001 and ISO 9001 by the SGS International Certification Services beginning of March this year. This success has been mainly achieved by the department "Integrated Quality Systems". Therefore the requirements of the internationally recognised DIN EN ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 management standards were met, jointly certified and merged with the existing DIN EN ISO 9001-compliant system.

Paper production: the TORNADO® rotary lobe pump transports hot starch solution without sticking or corroding

 

Waldkraiburg, Germany, 03/04/2013
After the food industry, the paper and cardboard industry is the world's largest consumer of starch. Carbohydrate-based paste is used to stick together layers of cardboard, for example, though starch solution is in fact primarily used to size the paper surface, making it printable and writeable. However, the medium is very sensitive to pulsation, and is very aggressive and capable of corroding conveyors. As a result, the existing centrifugal pumps in a large paper factory in Hesse had to be replaced. The company replaced its old pumps with NETZSCH TORNADO® rotary lobe pumps. The pumps were specially fine-tuned to the highly corrosive material and convey the starch with minimal pulsation and maximum care. The new displacement pumps have also made more accurate dosing possible.

Just one square metre each: flexible rotary lobe pumps convey kaolin slurry quickly and reliably despite reduced space

 

Waldkraiburg, Germany, 04/03/2013
"White gold" – this description of porcelain was also used in the past for paper, for a good reason. Both are based on kaolin, a special clay that gives the materials their radiant white. Kaolin is not only used as a coating in paper production, but as a filling as well. The demand in paper production for kaolin is therefore high so that, in large factories, the raw material is sometimes delivered in tankers by rail. Special pumps are required to empty the tanks quickly to save time and costs. One well-known paper producer, however, scarcely had any space for conveyors, so TORNADO® rotary lobe pumps from NETZSCH Pumpen&Systeme GmbH were used. The flexible and compact systems also work in unusual positions, so that just one square metre per pump is enough to convey the kaolin.
