The Dutch company Konutherm is a specialist for ship cargo and fuel heaters and heating installations for the process industry.
For the circulation of thermal oil on board of a new Seismic Support Vessel build under Bureau Veritas Classification, Flowmotion supplied 2 SPECK TOE-GN 50-200 centrifugal pumps.
These pumps are suitable to circulate thermal oil up to 350°C. The fact that these are the only pumps on the market that are standard equipped with a Silicon Carbide sliding bearing, makes them more wear resistant and easy in maintenance on board without requiring special tools. The extra cooling fan on the coupling guarantees a longer lifetime for the single acting mechanical seal and grease lubricated ball bearing.
