When pumps are used on ships and in ports, the technology must meet special requirements: The pumps should not only cope with a really wide variety of fluids, such as wastewater and lubricant oil, but should also be as space-saving, maintenance-free and easy to handle as possible. All four different product lines, developed by NETZSCH cover the full range of requirements in the maritime sector.
NETZSCH pumping systems can be universally deployed as transfer and booster pumps on ships and wharves, as well as on offshore platforms, from fuel or sludge transport, through loading and unloading, to tank stripping. NEMO® progressing cavity pumps can cope with liquid media which contain solids, which means they are frequently used on passenger and container ships to convey wastewater or oil sludge. When space is limited the TORNADO® rotary lobe pumps are ideal for the maritime sector as they have a particularly compact design while at the same time ensuring a high flow rate.
On the other hand, NOTOS® multi screw pumps, which can generate high pressures of up to 80 bar, are ideal for transporting lubricant oil, fuel and chemicals. All the pumps can also be supplemented by high-performance macerators for the grinding and separation of larger, harder objects, primarily when conveying wastewater.
