Case studies
  • AHLSTAR and SNS pumps throughout corn ethanol process
    FS Bioenergia in Mato Grosso is the first corn-only ethanol plant in Brazil and has an annual capacity of 250 million liters today. The production facility is equipped with top-class AHLSTAR and SNS process pumps from Sulzer.

  • AHLSTAR pumps with maintenance-free dynamic seals
    The paper mill includes a conventional wastewater treatment plant which treats about 20'000 m³ per day of process effluents. At the output of the plant, about 30% of the discharge water is reintroduced into the mill circuit and the remaining 70% is returned to the Moselle river. Despite the increasing stringency on the quality of the discharge water, no environmental incident has occurred since the start-up of the plant.
Applications
