HMD Kontro GSPX – General Service Petroleum BB5 API 685 Sealless Magnetic Drive Pump

Multi-stage leak free pump for safe high-differential processing  and handling of hazardous and valuable hydrocarbons and chemicals

High head performance is now available in a compact sealless magnetic drive package. The GSPX is a multi-stage design that delivers greater efficiencies in space, cost and servicing versus standard single stage pumps in a series.

The GSPX uses a between bearings design (BB5) for the second and third stage impellers, and produces higher differential pressures than single-stage sealless magnetic drive pumps.

Efficiency is further increased through an optimized diffuser design and optional ZeroLoss composite containment shell which eliminates coupling losses and heating of the process liquid.

  • Multiple in-line stages in an end-suction configuration for compact package and ease of installation in plant
  • BB5 Barrel Style Design: API compliant, no tie bolts
  • Sealless design-total product containment
  • Interchangeable components: commonality with the GSP pump range maximizes convenience and reduces stockholding

Based on our proven Frame 2 Magnetic Drive, the GSPX is available with two or three stages and two diffuser based hydraulic options.

  • Flows up to 450 GPM (102 m³/hr)
  • Heads to 1,400 ft (430m)
  • Temperature Range -40 to 500°F (-40 to 260°C)

The heavy duty line of API sealless magnetic drive, between bearings multi-stage centrifugal pumps complies with specifications required by the oil, gas, petroleum and heavy chemical industries. The GSP is typically used in toxic, aggressive, hot, crystallizing and high value processes.

Product Security – Magnetic drive sealless pumps are the safest and most robust means for liquid transfer. By eliminating the seal, the primary opportunities for leaks associated with traditional sealed pumps are completely removed.

Efficiency – By improving performance and reducing maintenance calls, sealless magnetic drive pumps can dramatically lower downtime and lost production.  In sum, this equates to maximized efficiency that can be seen on your bottom line.

Reliability – Sealless magnetic drive pumps have proven their reliability in even the most severe climate conditions, from the frozen tundra of Siberia to the deserts of the Middle East and the humid climes of Louisiana’s refineries.  In fact, there are Sundyne HMD Kontro pumps that have been in operation for over 30 years and are still running today.

Safety – Sundyne HMD Kontro sealless magnetic drive pumps are manufactured to conform to international design and safety standards, including ATEX, ISO, API and ANSI requirements.  Plus, with no mechanical seals to leak hazardous chemicals, these pumps offer a clear choice for process industry professionals who regularly deal with volatile or high value materials.

Cost-effective – Sealless magnetic drive pumps require less monitoring and maintenance than traditional sealed designs, equating to substantial savings over the life of the pump.

Service – Global service centers keep HMD Kontro sealless magnetic drive pumps operating with peak performance.  Standard pumps and parts are available from the factory and in the field.

POWER MONITOR

Installed in the Motor Control Center (MCC), a power monitor measures the power required to operate the pump.  By setting High and Low trip points, the power monitor is the perfect solution for protecting your pump from:

  • Dry running
  • Low flow operation
  • High flow operation
  • Severe cavitation
  • Magnet de-coupling

New ZeroLoss Containment Shell

Reduces Power Losses in the Pump to Zero
Excellent energy savings can now be made thanks to the introduction of the ZeroLoss containment shell for larger pumps. The elimination of eddy current losses can result in up to a 20% saving in power consumption, further enhancing the benefits and green credentials of magnetic drive technology from Sundyne HMD Kontro.

The advantage increases in proportion with the magnetic coupling size and is particularly appropriate for larger pumps, making the magnetic drive option even more attractive because through life costs are reduced further. Lower powerconsumption not only results in reduced running costs but alsopotentially provides lower initial capital costs, as smaller motors can be specified.

In addition, installation costs can be reduced as lower-rated cabling may be required, and there are space-savings from the ability to use a smaller base plate for the pump and motor combination.

VapourView® Ultrasonic Monitor

A gas detection system designed to bolster the reliability and eliminate dry-running of HMD Kontro API-685 Sealless magnetic drive pumps. This warning system mitigates costly pump component replacements and downtime that can result from dry running, entrainment or cavitation.

The VapourView is powered by an industry standard 24 Vdc supply and returns a 4-20 mA signal suitable for monitoring using a distributed control system (DCS). It features both light emitting diode (LED) and liquid crystal displays (LCD) to provide information on process fluid conditions inside of the pump to process engineers.

The VapourView has been performance tested and is compliant with explosive atmosphere and electro-magnetic compatibility requirements.The VapourView non-intrusive gas-in-liquid detector can be easily retrofitted into any HMD Kontro API 685 pump and will operate at temperatures between -40 and +350 degrees F (-40 and +180 degrees C).

LONG COUPLED

Long coupled configurations conform to API 685, API 610, ASME/ANSI B73.3 and ISO 2858 dimensions for easy replacement of mechanically sealed pumps (utilizing same baseplate, coupling, guard and motor).

SECONDARY CONTROL & CONTAINMENT

HMD Kontro Sealless magnetic drive pumps are available with secondary control devices to restrict any leaks. Mechanical devices are fitted to the drive shaft assembly and are activated in the unlikely event of containment shell failure. Also, the pump coupling housing is fitted with gaskets to eliminate any leaks across the joining faces.

Solids Handling

All HMD Kontro pumps, as standard, can handle up to 5% hardsolids and 150 microns diameter. The solid size can increase by fitting a self-cleaning in line filter, to 8% solids and 250 microns.

For larger solids HMD Kontro can provide pumps with a clean flush system or filter built into the flush pipework.
