This year, 16 participants met for a 80 km long training tour through the northern Black Forest.
The team started at Pforzheim's Wanderparkplatz Julius Naeher. The tour led from there along the Enztal and Grösseltal to Castle Neuenbürg. Further along the Enz river the cyclists turned into the Eyachtal, which is known for its idyllic landscape with brook trout fish farming. After this stage the team cycled to the summer mountain (Bad Wildbad) to the Grünhütte. After a short rest "pancakes were just too tempting for many" it continued over the Wildsee, a unique high moor, to...

Diaphragm metering pumps provide a constant, oil-free flow of CO2 for cooling silicon sensors at the CERN research center for particle physics
The remote-head design prevents the fluid from absorbing the heat produced by the pump motor and gearbox.
With approximately 9600 magnets and a circumference of 26,659 km, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the largest and most sophisticated accelerator operated by the famous CERN research institute, so far. When the LHC started operations, it marked a turning point in the field of particle physics, as it may help unlock answers to fundamental...

The requirements for corrosion protection are constantly increasing. For this reason, paint specifications according to NORSOK (Frosio, Nace) from customers in the oil & gas, refining and chemicals are becoming more extensive and stringent. Highly qualified staff to carry out the inspection work is therefore very important. LEWA responds to these requirements and has had three employees to eligible Frosio inspectors trained.
Frosio is known worldwide as Norwegian Advisory Board for training and certification of coating inspectors. The Frosio certification is an important step to obtain an...

Hermetically sealed pump head is suitable for any type of chemicals
Operators have to meet strict safety and environmental regulations and at the same time ensure that the requirements of the corresponding processes are met when metering chemicals. This includes a high metering accuracy as well as the possibility of a customized configuration and highest possible flexibility in use. Since the expenses for unexpected operation downtimes make up on average 70 percent of the life cycle costs of a pump, it is important to make sure during the selection process that the pump is built reliably and...

Ecodos diaphragm metering pump: Economical and safe solution for pumping fluid in the low-pressure range
In many industries, metering tasks take place in the low-pressure range of < 20 bar. Using a high-pressure pump for this purpose is usually not economical. At this year's Hannover Messe, Lewa GmbH is presenting a cutaway model of the Ecodos diaphragm metering pump, which clearly illustrates the operating principle of the low-pressure pump. The distinguishing feature is that the Ecodos diaphragm is mechanically driven,rather than hydraulically driven. Lewas pump installation...

After LEWA has already been certified for quality management (ISO 9001) and occupational health and safety (OHSAS 18001: 2007) in recent years, LEWA now obtains a certificate for a successful environmental management system according to ISO 14001:2004.
In an audit, proof has been furnished that LEWA complies with all requirements of the ISO standard. A certification document according to EMAS III will be issued. The Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (“EMAS”) has been developed by the European Community to support companies which want to improve their environmental performance. EMAS-certified...

At almost 3,000 m above sea level, robust multi-fuel pumps supply what is currently the world's largest ground-based astronomy project
Extreme conditions in Chile's Atacama Desert place special demands on both technology and support
In the northern reaches of Chile's Atacama Desert, 66 huge, high-precision antennas stand at 5,000 m above sea level, taking advantage of the clear, thin air at this altitude to obtain very sharp, high-contrast images of space. The system is part of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) Observatory in Chile, operated together by institutions...

Single-dimension CFD simulation based on an instationary friction model enables precise dimensioning of pump piping systems
Pump manufacturer Lewa is installing a test center for validation of simulation results obtained from their new proprietary software module
A technical animation that visualizes the synchronization of three Triplex process diaphragm pumps in different operating states was one of the highlights at Lewa's booth at this year's ACHEMA show. The objective of this kind of simulation is to reduce pressure-induced pulsation and to prevent formation of pipe vibrations that are...

In order to meet a wide array of requirements, pump manufacturer and system integrator Lewa through their Singaporean subsidiary (LEWA-Nikkiso Singapore Pte. Ltd.) recently fabricated and installed Lewa’s largest chemical injection module ordered to-date, on a Brazilian FPSO off the coast of Singapore.
With dimensions of 21.3 x 20 x 10 m and an estimated operating weight of 714 tons, the complete module surpasses the two others that the Lewa Group has produced for the EPC since 2010. Overall, 2,700 m of pipeline is installed in the module; it can be operated at a maximum pressure of 385 bar...

New touchscreen control for fully automated monitoring and regulation of odorizing systems
In nearly all countries, continuous, proportional odorizing and monitoring is mandated by law for potentially hazardous or highly explosive gases with no natural odor. Lewa GmbH has developed a new Odor Control Unit (OCU) in order to fulfill this need efficiently and without requiring a major commitment of time and personnel. The system continuously compares the target and actual concentration of the odorant, so that regular inspections of the odorizing systems can be discontinued within four weeks, or...
