NETZSCH Pumps improve efficiency and reduce costs for Acid Mine Water Drainage The Acid Mine Water Drainage Scheme is a project to de-water abandoned gold mines in the Johannesburg Area. Since the mid-19th century, gold mines started moving and followed the gold vein. Many of the original mine shafts near Grootvlei became abandoned and over the years filled with acidic mine water. Persistent rain and raising groundwater caused steadily raising water levels in tunnels and shafts. This has serious implications for the Johannesburg area, be-cause the water contains dissolved heavy metals and sulphur. On an earlier phase of the scheme peristaltic pumps were installed for lime slurry dosing which is used to neutralize the acidic water. However, these pumps were expen-sive to maintain and had a high power consumption.

Compact and powerful: Robust pump reliably conveys highly abrasive oil sand mixture Crude oil with a high sand content (up to 30%) is one of the most difficult fluids: The operating conditions such as viscosity, gas content and temperature differ significantly between various oil fields. In context to high differential pressure the sand particles are extremely abrasive. This results to frequent maintenance or replacement of the pump. Which means high costs for new plants and losses due to downtime. The TORNADO® T2 rotary lobe pump from NETZSCH Pumpen & Systeme GmbH was specifically developed for such demanding operating conditions and is distinguished by a long service life and a high degree of operational reliability. The unique design is also highly compact and ATEX-compliant – two important features for any oil production operation.

NETZSCH Provides Custom Diluent Injection Pumps for Major Energy Transporter With a goal of reaching the highest operational efficiencies at the storage facility, the customer was looking to install a pumping system that would take the heavy crude oil from the tanks and blend it with diluents to lower the viscosity of the crude oil to be pumped to the main pipeline for distribution.

Shortened Design, Inspection Openings and Robust Material Ensure Safety and Long Service Lives Transalpine rail and road tunnels, dams for hydro-electric and storage power plants - the number of major construction sites which need significant explosive work has increased considerably over recent years. At the same time, the requirements for explosives have been changing. Higher performance and increased safety are the overriding objectives, which are demonstrated above all in the greater use of emulsion explosives.

Heat, Sand and Fluctuating Crude Oil Compositions: Progressing Cavity Pumps Work in Extreme Conditions in One of the Largest Oilfields in Africa Sudan produces around 500,000 barrels of crude oil every day, about 200,000 of which come from the fields in the Melut Basin in the south of the country. Before it can be used or exported, the mixture of oil, water, gas and sand which has been pumped out of the desert soil must first be transported from the remote sources over large distances to the processing site. Multiphase pumps made by NETZSCH Pumpen & Systeme from Waldkraiburg in Germany are being used to do this.

External Temperatures up to -40°C and up to 90% Gas in Pumped Material: The World's Largest Progressing Cavity Pump for Crude Oil Beats Extreme Conditions Whether in the tundra of Alaska, in the Arabian desert or miles offshore in the middle of the ocean, ever more remote deposits are being tapped in the constant search for crude oil. Systems are often at the mercy of wind and weather. Maintenance work is difficult in environments far from human habitation. Robustness is therefore paramount for humans and machines.
