In response to the growing demand for energy efficient Zero Liquid Discharge and Minimal Liquid Discharge (ZLD/MLD) solutions in the Middle East, Danfoss launched its first APP pumps targeting large capacity industrial wastewater treatment plants.
The new APP W HC pumps that handle flow ranges from 11 to 24 m3/hour are made of Duplex stainless steel to provide maximum corrosion protection.
The ZLD/MLD APP pumps can be parallel-coupled to fulfil the required capacity at any time. If one of the pumps is out for maintenance, the remaining pumps automatically take over the full operation allowing the plant to run full speed around the clock.
Ziad Al Bawaliz Danfoss regional president for Turkey, Middle East and Africa (TMA), said: “The UAE has immense dependence on water technologies that can contribute to achieving universal access to safe quality water. The APP pumps instantly adjust to ensure constant flow and efficiency in the ZLD/MLD processes. Operation is extremely easy, since changes in pressure impact neither flow nor efficiency.”
He added: “For the last 15 years, our axial piston pumps have proved their efficiency in reverse osmosis desalination. We have applied this know-how to match the demands of wastewater market in the region. At Danfoss, we believe that taking this step can intensify the call for sustainability and energy source diversification in the regional and global water industry. Introducing our newest technologies at the Water, Energy, Technology and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) this year moves us forward to a brighter sustainable future.”
The APP W HC pumps deliver a constant flow irrespective of the amounts and quality of industrial wastewater. The simple pump design with few parts allows easy installation, inspection and maintenance, and can be operated without oil to prevent contamination.
