ABSTRACT
The article discusses technical challenges for pumping machinery due to recent applications in the oil and gas, nuclear, chemical and water industries. Clariant's Gerstofen plant in Bavaria, Germany, which processes Montan waxes for use in car and shoe polishes, includes a transfer system that has to convey a foaming, corrosive medium at a pressure of more than 4 bar. Franz Kovanetz, production engineer at Clariant, said the plant needs pumps that can convey low volumes of a corrosive medium.
