CANNED MOTOR PUMPS FOR THE ENERGY MARKET

You are here:

By combining safety and respect of our environment, canned motor pumps, totally hermetic, are essential on the energy market.

SEALLESS PUMP IN THE NUCLEAR ENERGY FIELD:

Nuclear power brings answers to many stakes: need to reduce CO2 emissions, in order to prevent climate changes, need to answer electricity needs, and, for certain countries, need to reinforce strategic independence.
The two greatest emerging powers: China and India (40% of the world’s population) understood this matter and have engaged in important programs regarding Nuclear energy development. It is widely used in France for electricity production.

Nevertheless, nuclear energy requires to handle radioactive substances and therefore measures must be undertaken in order to protect our environment through secure installations.

The main asset of canned motor pumps is the security regarding the external leakage risks. OPTIMEX, strengthened by its experiences has developed machines that respect the various construction codes required by this field: RCC-M / RCC-MX / RCC-MRX, and controls the construction of specific motors that answer the RCC-E standard, and validates there fitting to radiations.

Amongst others, we have already delivered numerous canned motor pumps, for example on these sites:

  • RES (Cadarache – France)
  • ILL (Grenoble – France)
  • SCK (Brussel – Belgique)
  • CABRI (Cadarache – France)
  • FESSEMHEIM (France)
  • FLAMANVILLE (France)
  • TAISHAN (Chine)

INDUSTRIAL PUMPS IN THE SOLAR ENERGY FIELD:

Solar energy is a renewable energy that offers an answer to the problems caused by the scarcity of some energy sources or by their environmental impact. The developed technologies allow to transform this energy into heat or electricity. Some stations are even able to produce continuous electricity, day and night, thanks to a heat storage system with melted salts.

The use of canned motor pumps represents a future application for solar energy stations, and OPTIMEX is today able to propose machines and solutions for transfer fluids on parabolic-type solar thermal power plants, as well as on applications requiring melted salts. Amongst other, we have already manufactured for the CEA pressurized water energy storage pumps.

INDUSTRIAL CENTRIFUGAL PUMPS IN THE DEEP GEOTHERMAL FIELD:

Renewable geothermal energy appears as one of the most promising new energies, allowing a wide production of electrical and thermic energies, while answering to the actual world energetic problematics.

There are various types of geothermal technologies (very low, low, average and high energy) that have in common to collect the heat contained in the soil, resulting from the pressure, and in certain cases, from the proximity to magma.

 

OPTIMEX proposes canned motor pumps for drill holes with high pressure and temperature restrictions.
