HPT Multistage Barrel Casing Boiler Feed Pump

The Heart of Your Process

Combining engineering and application expertise. These include developments in precision casting. sealing technology and materials. as well as the application of Finite Element (FE) analysis and state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques. Their robust construction and tolerance of changing conditions makes them particularly suitable for cyclic operation. The pump’s efficiency is a result of its advanced hydraulic design and therefore does not rely on the use of close internal clearances. service centers and representatives. it has been continually updated to take advantage of technological developments. China Elandsfontein. sales offices. Although the HPT is a well-established design.Sulzer Pumps Sulzer Pumps is one of the world leaders in state-of-the-art pumping solutions. Sulzer Pumps’ solutions add value and strengthen the competitive position of its customers. South Africa Leeds. HPT Pump . even with the clearances worn to their maximum values. UK HPT – Efficient and Reliable HPT radially split barrel-casing pumps are specifically designed for boiler feed applications in thermal power stations. This is 2 also the case for the rotordynamic design. which ensures low vibration by providing a high degree of damping throughout the life of the pump. with many years of reliable operation. These pumps are optimized to provide high availability and high efficiency operation over an extended period of time. Sulzer Pumps is a well-recognized player in the following industries: • Oil and Gas • Hydrocarbon Processing • Pulp and Paper • Power Generation • Water • General Industry • Chemical Process Industry HPT Global Manufacturing Facilities Suzhou. Thanks to a global network of manufacturing facilities. thus reducing operating and maintenance costs. we are able to provide fast responses to customer needs. Through its extensive experience in providing innovative solu­ tions to business partners.
