  • Cooperation in Field of Back-End is Subject of German-Russian Dialogue

    On March 18, 2019, in Berlin, Germany, a seminar “Perspectives for German-Russian Nuclear Safety Science Cooperation” took place. The seminar was organized under the auspices of German Eastern Business Association with participation of TENEX. The Russian delegation comprising representatives of ROSATOM State Corporation, TENEX, JSC “Science and Innovations”, FSUE “National Operator for Radioactive Waste Management”, Joint Institute for Nuclear Research of Russian Academy of Sciences, and The Nuclear Safety Institute (IBRAE) and their German colleagues discussed the perspectives and potential directions of joint research, drawing special attention to the issues of safe management of spent nuclear fuel and radioactive waste.

  • Robust rotary lobe pump design enables a six times higher service life of pumps handling abrasive ceramic slip

    Until 2013, a German ceramics manufacturer used a progressing cavity pump for filling and recirculation of the storage tanks for grog and ceramic slip. The wear parts of this pump, however, had to be replaced every three months due to the highly viscous and abrasive substance. To minimise service times and enable more economical production, NETZSCH Pumpen & Systeme GmbH from Waldkraiburg/Germany suggested replacing the unit with a special rotary lobe pump from the TORNADO® T2 range. The T.Proc® is specially designed for a long service life with minimum wear, so that it can also convey highly abrasive compounds without problems. This is made possible by the combination of the operating principle and a special material pairing, which is only offered by NETZSCH: instead of conventional elastomer lobes in a metal housing, this pump comprises two steel lobes rotating in a replaceable rubber housing insert. This achieves a higher durability of the moving components because steel is less susceptible to material fatigue from dynamic forces than plastic elastomer. In addition, the interior is designed without dead space so no slip residue can adhere. Due to the clearly reduced wear and the longer service life of 1 and 1.5 years, respectively, the ceramics manufacturer has now changed over its entire production to the TORNADO T.Proc®.

  • No wear thanks to reversal of material: Robust rotary lobe pumps designed for a significantly longer service life when using media with crystallizing MAP

    Until early 2013, a conventional rotary lobe pump was used to pump centrate into the aeration tank of a wastewater treatment plant. However, significant signs of wear appeared quickly, particularly on the elastomer lobes, due to the high con-tent of magnesium ammonium phosphate (MAP) in the water. The unit required frequent maintenance. For this reason, the decision makers decided to replace the pump with a more robust and reliable model. They chose TORNADO® T2 T.Envi® rotary lobe pump by NETZSCH Pumpen & Systeme GmbH from Waldkraiburg. It is specially tailored to the requirements on site, and thus guar-antees maximum operational safety. Wear could be minimized due to the reversal of material, typical of each particular model series, where metal lobes rotate in elastomer housing. This sets the T2 apart from rotary lobe pumps made by other manufacturers.
