After extensive research and evaluation, the Pump manufacturers below selected Simerics-MP as their CFD solution of choice, as provided by 80/20 Engineering. This was due to its ability to model the dynamic behaviour of the pump (transient) including cavitation with a high degree of accuracy and solution turnaround times that cannot be matched by other CFD tools.
IRONPUMP A/S – www.ironpump.com
IRONPUMP, World Class Water Pumps.
IRON Pump specializes in the manufacturing of marine pumps, pumps for the offshore industry and for the energy sector.
They have over 100 years of experience in constructing pumps, and always custom-designed their pumps to match exactly the needs and requirements of the task. No more, no less. The only thing their customers will never be able to influence is the quality. It always remains the same: World Class.
CFD techniques help design engineers really understand why the pump has certain behavioural characteristics in that the fluid flow paths can be easily visualized, and re-circulation or restrictions better understood that reveal performance issues such as ‘cavitation’ or ‘low efficiency’. This then facilitates design change that reduces or even eliminates any problem area identified.
80/20 Engineering is a specialist Fluid Flow Simulation and Thermal Analysis Consultancy Company. We have a long track record of helping companies implement ‘Design Friendly’ or ‘UpFront CFD’ user environments that we believe will play an ever-increasing role within the product development process. However, often the client project demands are such that there is an urgent need for a design to be improved or a problem resolved. In these situations, we also have a team of experienced simulation engineers to call upon.
VERDER UK Ltd – www.verderliquids.com
VERDER, A passion for Pumps
Verder UK, are all about industrial pumps: As manufacturers and distributors, Verder are not just interested in supplying what they make; their business is to supply the pumps their clients need.
Verder started in 1955, and so have an enviable wealth of experience and knowledge in pumps. But Verder also supply mixers, liquids handling systems and services.
As a manufacturer, they design, develop and research pump technology, allowing the optimization of products in-house, in order to make the best product possible. To do this, they employ the best designers and engineers, and invest in state-of-the-art fluid dynamics and modelling technology. What this means is that they don’t just sell pumps. They understand them inside out. They know what they’re for and who wants them.
Using CFD simulation for flow performance prediction can dramatically reduce the number of physical prototypes and amount of test work required which will either reduce product development lead times, cost to the client or enhance the quality of the product delivered.
