Submersible motor pumps manufacturer Pleuger Industries presented an energy efficient synchronous motor with permanent magnet drive at this year’s Asia-Pacific’s International Mining Exhibition 2019 (AIMEX) held in Sydney, Australia, last month.
The launch is in addition to highlighting the company’s latest applications in the fields of mine drainage and process water pumping.
The company notes that the Pleuger energy efficient permanent magnet motor, which was also created by its engineers for pumping applications in the mining industry, attracted positive attention at this year’s AIMEX.
The synchronous motor with a permanent magnet rotor has up to 14% higher efficiency, compared with conventional induction motors. Since 90% of a submersible motor pump’s life-cycle costs are attributable to power consumption, the latest technology provides enormous power saving potential.
The hermetically sealed rotor is also protected against corrosion and mechanical influences and contributes to maintenance-free operation.
Innovations like these are based on Pleuger engineers’ decades of project experience. At the production site in Hamburg, Germany, its ultramodern research and development department creates tailor-made unique alternatives for mining companies around the world.
These include iron-ore mines in Western Australia, copper mines in Chile, uranium mines in Niger and opencast lignite mines in Germany.
Pleuger is able to guarantee its clients suitable after-sales service with a dense network of sales partners and expand its built-to-order strategy worldwide. The company’s global expansion course has been strongly promoted by the acquisition of US-based private investment firm Flacks Group. Most recently, Pleuger established sales offices in Moscow and Miami and has invested in additional local service personnel.
Pleuger’s machine manufacturer’s range includes standard and special units from 10 cm to 127 cm depending on the customer’s requirements. Pressure jacket pumps that do not require dynamic seals and are therefore considered particularly reliable are used to increase the pressure in pipelines.
Pleuger Industries exhibited at the Germany Pavilion at AIMEX which is coordinated by the German Ministry of Economics and the German Engineering Federation. Subsequently, the federation has supported the specialist in mine drainage and process water supply in its latest export projects.
