ALL CLEAR The design of these low-maintenance units prevents the possibility of pollutants being released into the medium
Engineering solutions provider BMG’s SEIM spindle screw pumps efficiently handle a range of liquids – such as oils – at different flows and various pressures.
BMG is the exclusive distributor of manufacturer SEIM screw pumps throughout Africa.
BMG supplies and supports the full range of SEIM spindle screw pumps, flow meters and in-line relief valves.
“These robust pumps and related products, which are manufactured to stringent quality specifications in accordance with ISO 9001:2000 standards, are designed for dependable use in many sectors including power generation, wind and hydropower generation, petrochemicals, oil and gas, paper, steel, automotive and marine industries,” says BMG pumps national product manager Joe Pinheiro.
He adds that key advantages of SEIM pumps include low pulsation levels, reduced noise during operation and high self-priming capabilities. These pumps are able to handle high viscosities and ensure optimal performance, even with air entrapped in oil.
The design of these low-maintenance units prevents the possibility of pollutants being released into the medium.
He adds that BMG’s SEIM range encompasses three spindle screw pumps, for viscosities up to 100 000 cst, available with or without built-in relief valves, and two spindle screw pumps, for viscosities up to 20 000 cst, available with or without gear drives.
SEIM pumps are also available in accordance with the latest API 676 standards.
Flow meters are rated for 200 bar and 400 bar and in-line relief valves facilitate flows up to 10 000 𝓵/min up to 100 bar.
Further, pumps can also be customized to offer up to 20 000 𝓵/min and up to 200 bar, depending on requirements.
Pinheiro explains that this portfolio includes a selection of pump models capable of handling a wide range of liquids at different flows and various pressures.
SEIM pumps are designed to efficiently handle liquids that include various grades of mineral and synthetic oils, heavy fuel oils and light fuel oils, diathermic oils and liquids with little or no lubricating properties, as well as liquids in the food industry and for cosmetics and soaps in the pharmaceutical sector.
BMG offers a technical advisory service to ensure selection of the most suitable pump size for every specific application.
The company supports this range with a spares facility, a 24-hour maintenance service through more than 100 BMG branches, and a wide distribution network in South Africa and across borders into Zambia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Swaziland, Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia and Tanzania, Pinheiro concludes.
