ANDRITZ vertical line shaft pump with adjustable angle impellers for added flexibility


Pumps for the power industry

Matching a pump to the different combinations of delivery rate and head in a power plant requires a range of impellers, each with its specific speed. How­ever, even with a range of impellers, there are often daily occasions which call for something in between the standard impeller designs. ANDRITZ has incorpo­rated a hydraulic device to adjust the impeller blade angles on its vertical line shaft pumps to react to changing conditions while the pump is operating.

Before a vertical line shaft pump is installed, ANDRITZ selects the impeller design and sets the angle of the blades to meet specific process requirements. However, power plants commonly experience changes in the cooling water flow rate and head (e.g. day/night operations or tidal fluctuations). So, additional flexibility beyond fixed-angle impellers or manually adjusted impellers is needed. There are typically two ways to achieve that flexibility: speed control with a frequency converter or hydraulic impeller blade adjustment. ANDRITZ delivers pumps with either type of adjustment. So the question arises, “When does it make sense to use the hydraulic impeller blade adjustment?” The brief answer is that it depends upon the specific application: range of fluctuation in delivery rate and head, other installed equipment, budget available, etc. The specialists at ANDRITZ will help in the evaluation and selection.

Pumps as turbines for the power industry

Are you looking for energy-saving solutions or for solutions that produce energy? Small hydropower plants, and thus independent power generation, are suitable for the private as well as the municipal sectors, and for industrial and commercial facilities.

Save energy with pumps from ANDRITZ used as turbines. Ecological and economic success was achieved by a paper plant in Germany with a reverse running standard pump. This pump – an ANDRITZ turbine pump operating in the waste water microflotation plant – takes the existing overpressure after the waste water tank and transfers the additional energy back to the booster pump motor. 

Hydroelectric energy has many benefits. It can always be generated, is easily stored, and guarantees a base load. It is also a clean and emission-free means of generating electricity.
