CRAWLEY, WEST SUSSEX, UK. (30 April, 2015)— Edwards’ latest range of liquid ring pumps is designed specifically for fly ash handling, a challenging application in coal-fired power generation plants.
The new range of SHR single stage liquid ring pumps provides the optimum vacuum solution for fly ash handling, particularly in India, where the high ash content of the coal commonly used produces vast quantities of ash to be removed during the combustion process. Unlike other vacuum solutions liquid ring vacuum pumps are tolerant to ash carry over, and the single stage pump construction of the new range provides optimum power at pressures required for effective conveying.
Edwards is introducing the new liquid ring pump for fly ash handling at Power-Gen India and Central Asia, the region’s premier conference and exhibition for the power industry. Visitors to the Edwards booth will have the opportunity to see an SHR11850 pump from the new range, as well as chat with application experts about the right vacuum solutions for their power generation needs; liquid ring pumps provide the optimum solution for many applications in the power industry.
Phil Rawlinson, Global Market Sector Manager, Power for Edwards, commented, “The latest addition to our LRP range completes our liquid ring pump offering for the power sector, and complements the sister two-stage pumps already operating on over 40 GW of generating capacity in India. Our installed base is supported by the strong local presence we have in India, with a network of skilled local service capability.”
Liquid ring pumps have a simple design with no contact between major pump components. This absence of contacting parts, allied with the low operating temperatures, ensures that these pumps are extremely reliable, even in the most challenging of applications.
