After three years of hard work of research and development we finally reached the first of the objectives set at the beginning of our journey, the Archimedes’ Screw Pump with Sealing Disc. As a culmination of the previous prototypes, we have manufactured the definitive prototype with a stainless steel cast-iron body that will serve as [...]

While the Archimedes screw pump was being improved, another work-team developed the separator that will work with it. Both will be connected and will rotate together and will consent water separation (heavy phase) before pump suction. A design challenge never made until now. Our prototype was made in stainless steel following high quality standards that [...]

Once the new parts were made we could simulate working conditions, actual adjustmen between parts and ready a more robust prototype than the previous one whose body was completely made of sintered powders of nylon.      The test bench confirmed the first tests results and helped us to know better the limits of each [...]

STAINLESS STEEL ARQUIMEDES’ SCREW

By | octubre 10th, 2017|owskimmer project|Comentarios desactivados en STAINLESS STEEL ARQUIMEDES’ SCREW

Once we've verified the design of the screw, we're starting its production in stainless steel. Due to its geometry and its perfect fitting with the sealing disc it's the most complicated part of the pump. Nevertheless we're confident of achieving the goal!. After quite a few attempts and difficult adjustment and setting of various machine [...]

Once the idea was developed, to build a skimmer equipped with a Archimedes screw pump but able to separate part of the recovered water, we start manufacturing of the prototype. Although our final aim is to manufacture a robust pump capable of working with any type of fluid, and being stainless steel the material that [...]

Analyzing performance and design of the available pumps we are inclined to use screw pumps in our aim to reduce water content in the skimmer. Its geometry and the way in which power transmission takes place makes us think that they are the most suitable to work together with a centrifugal separator.   Now is [...]
