Panta rhei – Everything flows! Same at KAMAT! As the pump manufacturer from Witten puts it they actively used the Corona-time to work at full speed on the development of their pump programme, in order to achieve further standardisations and hydraulic revisions at their plunger pumps. Now, KAMAT proudly present their new performance list. The pump range with all its technical data is summarised in an overview on a two-sided data sheet. In addition, an overview of the new pump programme is also available in an 8-sided Plunger Pump Portfolio leaflet with a new design. „Reason for our new leaflet are a number of eager efforts in the developments of our systems, aiming and achieving a higher grade of standardisation, maximum input power and further, more simplification“, says chief engineer and Managing Director Dipl.-Ing. Jan Sprakel.

Now, the last final details of the planned modifications and their realisation are successfully completed. “We have decided to summarise all technical changes preliminary in this overview leaflet file, which we have already published last year. To be up-to-date, herewith, we have uploaded the leaflet’s online-version for all who are interested. We hope that the portfolio‘s new look, design and format will suit everybody and what is more important to us, that it will be helpful to everybody who is looking for the most suitable pump. Much more we are pleased about the occasion for designing and publishing the new brochure and this is the rapid development of our pump programme, with the goal, to minimise the danger of cavitation even further“, says Sprakel.

More outline: From now on out of previous 13 pumps only 11 remain in the performance list

What has changed in detail: The pump programme has been tightened, unified and has become easier. Out of the previous 13 pump types in the performance list only 11 remained, with no losses but optimisation. The current M-Head has been omitted without the loss of versatility in the available options. The MCH-Head was re-named as M, because it replaces the old M-Head. The MC-Head becomes M2-Head. The new M-Head and M2-Head will be available in any performance level with plate valves and soft valves. With the changeover all heads were re-engineered with the objective to achieve lower NPSH-values and thus avoiding cavitation. Furthermore the gear boxes have been revised, with higher performance inputs resulting in generally increased performance level.

New conversion kits not needed, pump-heads smaller and lighter in weight from now on

From now on the heads are smaller in their design size and thus lighter in weight. The good news: New replacement sets are not needed and all previous mounting parts still fit. According to the manufacturer the gear geometry and intersection stayed the same too. A1- and A2-Head remain the same, just with standardisation of the suction hoses. The benefit to the customer is next to flexibility very clearly the NPSH optimisation with lower values. Furthermore, in each design size there is the opportunity to customise the valve design size depending on the fluid distributed. The integrated oil coolers remain available for the mining industry.

The changes at a glance:

Pump Performance

K40000-3G / 400 kW -> Upgrade to K45000-3G/ up to 450 kW
K50000-5G / 530 kW -> Upgrade to K55000-5G/ up to 550 kW
K80000-5G / 800 kW -> Upgrade to K100000-5G/ up to 1000 kW = 1 MW
K120000-5G / 1200 kW -> Upgrade to K150000-5G/ up to 1500 kW = 1.5 MW

Pump Heads (A- and M-Head)

M-Head omitted
MCH-Head becomes M-Head MC-Head becomes M2-Head
Both heads can get either plate valves or soft sealing valves.
