Vogelsang will be demonstrating a model of the new HiCone pump on stand D301 during the two-day exhibition. The team will be on-hand to answer any questions and explain its specific functions.“With the HiCone, we are once again setting standards for progressive cavity pumps. We have met the demands of our customers for reduced life-costs and longer service times with the further development of our technology. We are pleased to be launching it at this year’s World Biogas Expo and expect a lot of interest.”
Another advantage for users is that they can view the status of the pumping elements in a real-time display. Instead of being surprised by a sudden failure, they can receive continuous information and plan for parts in advance.
“Our customers need technology that is long-lasting and can be flexibly adapted to differing pumping tasks and operating parameters. The HiCone gives them a highly efficient pump, which can be individually adjusted and readjusted.”
The HiCone progressive cavity pump with its innovative adjustment system, which Vogelsang is launching on the market at World Biogas Expo, stands for reduced life cycle costs thanks to its long service life and lower energy requirements.
The clamping between the rotor and stator can be adjusted during the pump’s entire service life at the touch of a button or from the control room at the click of a mouse. It can be quickly and easily adapted to different pumping tasks and changing operating parameters such as pressure, viscosity or temperature, and can be reduced to the minimum required level.
This means a service life that is 2 to 3 times longer and maximum efficiency with minimum power consumption. Jonathan said: “We have developed a revolutionary, patent-pending adjustment system that was not previously available on the market in this form. This once again underscores our innovation leadership in pump technology.”
In addition, the very high power consumption that usually occurs with progressive cavity pumps when starting up the pump, is reduced to a minimum by an intelligent automatic start-up system. This increases energy efficiency, especially for short pumping cycles. At the same time, this also reduces the costs for the power electronics.
Vogelsang has developed this innovative adjustment concept for all four sizes of the HiCone series. This means that the system can be installed in progressive cavity pumps even with high flow rates of up to 290 cubic meters per hour. As a result, for the first time ever, it is possible to individually adjust and readjust the pump for many applications in the biogas sector.The QuickService concept makes it easy to change parts without dismantling the outlet or inlet pipeline. In addition, a display also provides information about the wear status at all times. In use, this means no unexpected breakdowns. Service and maintenance work can be carried out according to schedule.
The robust progressive cavity pumps of the HiCone series reliably convey highly viscous and abrasive media, as well as media heavily contaminated with debris. This makes them suitable for almost all applications in biogas plants.
