Bungartz at ACHEMA 2022

Until now, the Bungartz company has been known for its special centrifugal pumps, which have become known worldwide as problem solvers. What is new now is a rotary piston pump, which will be presented to the general public for the first time at ACHEMA 2022. It is energy-efficient and (cleverly) combines the advantages of various already well-known technologies. At the same time, it is low in pulsation and – like some pumps from Bungartz – hermetically sealed. The novel design, in which the torque of the outer shaft is transmitted to the pistons by magnets, reduces the pump’s maintenance requirements.

The fields of application of the new pump are numerous: The pumping of toxic, corrosive or viscous liquids is one of them. Shear-sensitive and explosive materials are conveyed just as safely as you have been used to with this manufacturer.

An innovation for the MOR / UMOR horizontal centrifugal pumps, which have been in production since the 1930s, will also be exhibited for the first time at ACHEMA 2022. In line with the credo of making good even better, Bungartz will be presenting the prototype of a completely revised centrifugally controlled standstill seal, which is intended to further minimize the inevitable small leakage during standstill in the future. Bungartz’s robust and durable pumps are well known for their use in difficult applications, often for pumping media that are simultaneously hot, abrasive and corrosive. Primary shaft sealing as a hydrodynamic seal has also long been proven: Impeller back vanes keep the medium away from the shaft during operation, so no additional sealing is required during operation. Mostly used as slurry pumps, the MOR / UMOR types can be run dry and have a proven track record of very high availability, as they have no components subject to wear.

At ACHEMA 2022, the functional models of Bungartz pumps will again be shown in action, e.g. the mobile self-regulating magnetic drive pump MPCVAN, which can be used to present a wide range of critical operating conditions, as well as the newly presented HRK displacement pump.
