Allweiler, a CIRCOR Business Unit, will be displaying redesigned OptiFix progressing cavity pump, a next-gen maintenance solution designed to save money at Hannover Messe 2019. Allweiler's team of experts will demonstrate its functionality by guiding visitors through the five easy steps to dismantle the pump. The IN-1000 Condition and Operation Monitoring System will also be on display to show visitors how they can improve safety and simultaneously reduce operating costs. The IN-1000 is now also available with ATEX certification for EX zones. The Smart Platform IN-1000 series is ready to handle anything, from straightforward condition monitoring to complex situations involving multiple pumps. This makes it possible to plan ahead for service and maintenance. As a result, service intervals can be extended and unanticipated production downtime virtually eliminated.
According to Gunter Connert, Director of Sales in Germany, “The reductions to service and energy expenditures pay for the systems over a short period and improve the customer's operating results usually within one year.”
With its quick-change design, the OptiFix progressing cavity pump is also valued for its ability to save money. Its new service solution offers the shortest average repair time in its class. This results in less downtime, reduced maintenance, and lower service costs. “OptiFix can reduce service times by as much as 85 per cent. Thanks to its patented design, this pump can be serviced, repaired, and retrofitted in a fraction of the normal time. The pump's rotor and stator can be removed without dismantling the discharge and suction casings. If combined with the patented ALLDUR stator, service life can be increased by up to 500 per cent,” said Connert.
