SIHI ZTN Pump from Flowserve a “No Brainer” for Cost-Effectiveness and Reliability

sihi ztn pump
A Missouri-based manufacturing plant was searching for a more cost-effective method of pumping therminol oil — which often reaches temperatures of 450 degrees Fahrenheit — without having to purchase a costly mechanical seal or labor intensive maintenance.

Since repairing the mechanical seal would cost the same as purchasing a new pump, IPEG, which offers a wide selection of pumps from industry leading manufacturers, recommended that the manufacturer switch to a SIHI ZTN industrial process pump from Flowserve. Designed with operational safety, environmental concern and long-term reliability in mind, Flowserve’s SIHI ZTN pump is ideal for applications that require high temperature thermal oil. While running the pump, the customer also enjoys:

  • Guaranteed efficiency with closed impellers
  • High efficiency and low power with advanced fluid dynamic design
  • Low NPSH due to high-quality impeller and suction profile
  • Enhanced seal life with heat dissipation

By purchasing a new industrial process pump — rather than replacing the mechanical seal on the old pump — the manufacturer avoided having to pay out-of-pocket for costly mechanical seal repair and maintenance. These savings enabled them to purchase a spare pump to reduce downtime during plant maintenance.

“It was a no-brainer when the cost of the SIHI was about the same price as a new double mechanical seal,” said a representative of the manufacturing plant. Since installation, the customer’s new and improved industrial process pump has helped the manufacturer improve efficiency and reduce downtime.

St. Louis Area Hospital Depends on Reliable Grundfos Pumps for Surgery

Grundfos Pumps
A nationally recognized, St. Louis, Missouri, area hospital was experiencing costly interruptions in its operations caused by the frequent replacement of mechanical seals and bearings on a pump used during surgery. The hospital’s old end-suction pump required seal and bearing replacements one to two times a year, and each replacement would take up to four to six hours.

Frustrated, the hospital turned to IPEG for a more reliable, cost-effective solution. With high performance and sustainability in mind, IPEG replaced the existing pump with a Grundfos vertical multi-stage pump. In addition to guaranteed dependability, IPEG recommended the Grundfos pump because it allowed for greater efficiency and functionality, which ultimately helped to save the hospital’s maintenance team time and stress, as well as the high cost of labor and materials.

In addition to replacing the pump, IPEG designed and fabricated piping and a customized a pump stand to allow for easy installation of the new Grundfos pump. Since the 2012 installation, the Grundfos pump has not required any extensive repairs or mechanical seal replacement, reducing downtime by 100 percent year over year for the past six years.

Hospital officials were so pleased with the results that they decided to purchase another Grundfos pump to bring the backup end-suction pump up to the same standards, eliminating expensive and time-consuming biannual seal and bearing replacements.

Since replacing its unreliable and costly pump with a dependable Grundfos pump, the hospital’s operations have remained uninterrupted.

Innovation Comes Calling with Wilden Pumps and IPEG

wilden pumps
IPEG prides itself on offering a broad range of quality industrial products to its customers. Wilden Pumps is a perfect example of an IPEG vendor that produces a hard-working and well-designed pump.

Once Wilden Pump & Engineering Company opened its doors in 1955, they introduced the world to innovative pump technology. Wilden Pumps invented the Air-Operated Double-Diaphragm (AODD) pump, an alternative to centrifugal pumps. AODD pumps are seal-less and allow for the positive displacement of fluids.

As a pioneer of new technology, Wilden has an advantage over all other AODD pump providers — a 63-year history of knowledge, design and the groundwork in place to solve the toughest of pumping application issues. This pump manufacturer has found ways to increase efficiency, cut energy costs, move highly abrasive product and deliver unparalleled reliability.

Application Solutions

Wilden Pumps’ unique design of AODD pumps features an air-operated double diaphragm that can transfer thick fluids without issue. Sludges or slurries with a large amount of grit and solid content are no match for the AODD pump’s suction-lift characteristics. Wilden’s pumps fit the needs of chemical, paint and coating, mining, oil and gas, water and wastewater, liquid terminals, process, semiconductor, food and beverage and pharmaceutical applications. The inventive construction makes these pumps an industry top choice for the transfer of highly viscous liquids.

The Wilden V2550 Velocity Series, for example, is a plastic pump with a unique design featuring a detachable mounting foot. The pump can be reoriented from a vertical to horizontal position because it has multiple inlet and discharge port options. With this feature, it can fit perfectly into constrained spaces, and — with only two moving parts — it’s guaranteed for long-term reliability.

The latest of Wilden’s pump advancements is the Wilden® Pro-Flo® SHIFT (PS) premium air distribution system (ADS). The Pro-Flo SHIFT simple design has won multiple awards for energy savings, performance and efficiency. An air-control spool automatically optimizes air consumption and eliminates overcharging of the air chamber with no reduction in flow rate. Early adapters have found that Pro-Flow SHIFT delivers:

  • A 60% savings in air consumption
  • More yield per SCFM versus competitive AODD pumps
  • 50% lower costs than electronically actuated ADS
  • Less downtime, simplified maintenance and fewer operating parts
  • Single-point exhaust options
  • Plug-and-play operation
  • No electronic or submersible parts

Wilden’s quality products are geared toward specific applications:

  • Sanitary and Hygienic
    Wilden’s hygienic, sanitary and biopharmaceutical AODD pumps have safety standards in mind and can efficiently pump a wide range of viscosities, solids and shear-sensitive products.
  • Electronic Control 
    The Accu-Flo™ Air Distribution System (ADS), for use on AODD pumps, is perfect for exacting applications like batching.
  • Utility
    The durable Wilden® Turbo-Flo™ Air Distribution System (ADS) is known for longevity and stress-free serviceability.
  • High Pressure
    When transferring viscous, solid-laden slurries at high discharge pressures, the Wilden High Pressure Series of AODD pumps are a dependable option.
  • Mining
    Rugged mining applications are no match for the Wilden Stallion® model of clamped AODD pumps. They are ideally suited to handle solid-laden mining slurries with simplicity.
  • Large Solids Passage
    Large solids can cause clogging with ordinary pumps, but not with the Wilden and Brahma™ AODD Pump. Their large internal clearance and flow-through design result in the capacity needed to prevent obstructions.
  • Natural Gas Operated
    Wilden offers CSA-certified GPS and GPX Natural Gas-Operated Double-Diaphragm Pumps in 13 mm (1/2”) to 76 mm (3”) sizes in aluminum and stainless steel.
  • Oil and Gas
    Meeting the strict requirements for fuel transfer applications, Wilden UL pumps are certified to UL 79 standards and can be used when dispensing gas products, fuels, petroleum or any other lubricating applications.

IPEG’s Creative Solution Cleans Up Chocolate Catastrophe

viking pump
A leading chocolate manufacturer was experiencing a messy problem and turned to IPEG for an innovative and creative solution.

A pump with a packed stuffing box was being used to handle chocolate, and the chocolate continuously leaked causing a daily housekeeping mess. After IPEG introduced new technology to improve the way manufacturers process chocolate, the company decided to implement IPEG’s innovative idea.

Working with vendor-partner Viking Pump, IPEG identified the difficulty as a sealing issue and developed an O-Ring seal stuffing box specifically designed for chocolate applications. IPEG and Viking Pump worked with the customer, using their plant as a test site to run the problem-solving solution — a Viking Pump Model KK124A that was modified to accept a customized O-Ring seal stuffing box bushing assembly.

After the pump had run continuously 24/7 for nine months, the manufacturer, IPEG and Viking Pump were satisfied to discover that with minimal maintenance (greasing the stuffing box once every two weeks), not a single drop of chocolate came in contact with the floor. The creative, innovative O-Ring seal stuffing box has made the chocolate company mess free.
