BAXTER SPRINGS, Kan., June 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- KMT McCartney Products, a leading global supplier of Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) equipment, is pleased to showcase the Next Generation of Phase Flow Technology, the PF-3 Phase Flow Initiator Injection Pump, at the ACHEMA Tradefair currently underway in Frankfurt, Germany.
The McCartney PF-3 Phase Flow Intensifier represents a breakthrough in intensifier technology and another example of McCartney's commitment to the advancement of Polyethylene Initiator Injection Pump Technology.
The McCartney PF-3 Phase Flow Intensifier features three side-by-side piston / plunger assemblies that operate with the same industry leading McCartney Phase Flow Control as the PF-1. However, the PF-3 offers an additional Service Mode feature for use when service of High Pressure components is required on any one of the three topworks. With this feature, the field operator can indefinitely idle and lock out the topworks needing service without interrupting flow of initiator fluid from the pump skid! Service Mode is enabled from the local control panel.
The design of the McCartney PF-3 Phase Flow Intensifier will offer a slower cycle rate than conventional reciprocating style intensifiers and normal PF-1s, resulting in fewer pressure cycles on the cylinder components and check valves. The slow, steady plunger movement will deliver an extended life of the patented, non-adjustable pressure seals. Overall reliability is excellent, with seal life ranging between 9,000 and 27,000 hours.
McCartney Phase Flow Control preloads the catalyst in the second cylinder while the first is on its power stroke, essentially eliminating the pressure drop associated with shifting the supply from one cylinder to the other.
With this innovative technology, the temperature profile within the reactor will be much smoother, allowing operation closer to the optimum set-point. As improved rates are achieved, the PF-3 will in most cases increase production without changing the process itself.
To find out how this Next Generation in Phase Flow Technology can give you the edge in reliability and superior performance in the Polyethylene Industry, the McCartney PF-3 Phase Flow Initiator Injection Topworks is being showcased at the ACHEMA Tradefair, in Frankfurt, Germany, McCartney Hall 9 Booth #B70. The Tradefair dates are June 18-22, 2012.
