As experts for the introduction of organic substrates into biogas plants, we are also specialized in planning and integrating the right pumping technology for biogas plants. Pumps are mainly used in the form of mixing pumps. If very dry, organic substrates are fed, separation occurs in the fermenter. This can be avoided by the forced mixing of solid and liquid materials with a mixing pump.
Pumping technology for substrate feeding
Mixing pumps are ideal for the most effective mixing of liquid fermenter material with freshly fed, solid material.
The WANGEN BIO-MIX pumps have been integrated into the energy production process for years and have been continuously further developed and optimized ever since. They are suitable for conveying corn silage, grass silage, whole plant silage, solid manure, chicken manure, waste and co-ferments that are mixed with liquid materials in the pump.
Suction pump (feed pump)
The WANGEN type KL-S helical rotor pump with its bearing bracket belongs to the basic product group of the pump factory. The central advantage of the pump concept lies in the low life cycle costs. The universally applicable pump is suitable for pumping almost all low to extremely high viscosity media (1 mPas -3,000,000 mPas).
Submersible pump (type KL-T)
The WANGEN type KL-T helical rotor pump is suitable as a submersible pump for pumping materials from tanks and containers. The pumped materials – regardless of whether they are liquid, abrasive, lumpy, sticky or highly viscous – are conveyed gently and without impairing the structure and the quality of the product.
Replacement of wearing parts in a few simple steps, without dismantling the pump from the piping system thanks to the Service in Place. The Xpress pump series has been specially developed to shorten service times and thus reduce costs. The X-LIFT quick-change system developed by WANGEN PUMPEN ensures reliable pumping of the media as well as fast rotor/stator changes.
“The WANGEN BIO-FEED developed by WANGEN PUMPEN is specially designed for systems aimed at combining the existing screw conveyor technology on the solids feeder with the liquid feed. With a specially developed milling screw, you can mix the solids to be fed with the separately fed liquid and convey them into the desired containers.
The replacement of spare parts is made possible by the use of our innovative X-LIFT quick-change system with a few simple steps, without dismantling the pump from the piping system. This makes the WANGEN BIO-FEED also suitable for use in confined spaces.”
“The WANGEN X-UNIT consists of the two modules X-TRACT and X-CUT. Both are available separately and as an optimally matched X-UNIT.
Increased process reliability by removing foreign objects and impurities damaging the plant with the help of the X-TRACT foreign object separator and the X-CUT shredder. Shredding of the material by the best possible adaptation of the shredding unit to the material.”
