ANDRITZ will be exhibiting its broad range of proven and also new technologies, services, and automation solutions for the water, wastewater, waste management, and raw materials industries at the IFAT 2020 show in Munich, Germany, from May 4-8, 2020. The company will focus on innovations like the standard water pump series ES05, the new series of Aqua-Screen fine screens, the ANDRITZ decanter centrifuge DU, and intelligent control systems for pumps, separation and filtration equipment.
Divided into the individual key processes – water intake, pumping, screening and filtration, thickening, dewatering, thermal treatment, and system control – ANDRITZ process experts will provide a detailed and informative insight into the comprehensive product portfolio and the most important new features as well as presenting results from relevant projects.
ANDRITZ will present the new, single-stage centrifugal pump from the ES05 series for the first time. This standard water pump features low energy consumption, which results in much lower operating costs. Available with the proven, closed ANDRITZ impeller design, the pump achieves efficiencies of up to 88% and a flow rate of up to 743 m3/h at 50 Hz. The pump is the ideal solution for conveying clean water without any particles or solids for water supply, distribution to various industries and for the drinking water supply.
The ANDRITZ pump controller (APC) is another innovation that ANDRITZ is presenting to the market for the first time at IFAT 2020. This is a technology for flexible control of up to six pumps of different sizes and output that are interconnected to form a complete assembly. Various different functions, such as operating, display, reporting, control and adjustment of such defined control variables as pressure, head and flow rate are provided in a central and compact unit – the APC. The control system is pre-programmed to the plant’s general conditions, with the result that no trained personnel, nor any equipment or programming skills are needed on site for start-up. With the different configuration options, operating modes and available sensors can be integrated into the system with just a few clicks. Besides direct control on site, it is also possible to access the APC at any time and from anywhere in the world by means of a remote interface.
