The New Standard for Pump Manufacturing
For years, the pump industry has relied on traditional processes to create the molds for pumps and parts, which, because of the necessary man-hours, often result in work stoppages and slowdowns. But now the industry is in the midst of an overhaul as additive manufacturing—3D printing for the industrial sector—led by ExOne offers the promise of a fast and cost-effective way to build the sand molds for castings.
ExOne, a publicly traded leader in the additive manufacturing space, provides 3D printing machines, 3D printed products and related services to industrial customers in several segments, including pumps, automotive, aerospace, medical, and energy. The ExOne process gives traditional manufacturers an opportunity to reduce costs, lower the risk of trial and error and create opportunities for design innovation.
ExOne delivers functional parts—primarily in stainless steel and foundry silica sand—which can be used for both prototyping and real-world production applications. Headquartered in North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, ExOne has U.S. production service centers in Texas, Michigan, Washington, and Nevada as well as in Germany and Japan, which helps localize the process for key industrial bases around the globe.
Manufacturers that use ExOne’s additive manufacturing process see significant, strategic advantages over traditional methods. The ability to expand creativity and flexibility with virtually unlimited design complexity, without the need for draft angles, enables product designs previously unattainable. Additionally, the opportunity for rapid production of castings and prototypes in turn reduces lead times significantly, and gets new products to the market faster.
In the pump industry, ExOne has dramatically improved hydraulic balancing of impeller castings and produced quick turnaround times for one-off castings. Concurrent iterations can be achieved in a matter of weeks. Additive manufacturing is also the ideal application for reverse engineering of legacy pump components and reduces the need for physical warehouse space for patterns, since data files can be stored on a hard drive.
The ExOne process helps customers in the pumping industry produce castings for prototyping, replacement impellers, volute shapes and rotating parts, by printing entire mold packages or as part of a “hybrid” approach to print just the cores. By creating these types of molds and cores through an additive process, ExOne significantly reduces the time and cost required to rapidly produce castings. When compared to traditional pattern manufacturing process, delivery of mold packages to the foundry is measured in days versus months. In addition, customers have experienced parts that have shown to yield additional benefits, such as improved impeller core accuracy, superior blade registration, better hydraulic performance, and ease of dynamic balance.
Several leading pumps manufacturers around the world, including Flowserve and Hydro Parts Solutions Inc., have seen significant value in working with ExOne to integrate multi-piece assemblies and enhance product functionality. ExOne’s work with Standard Alloys began with a challenge to create a 57-inch impeller casting within critical lead time requirements. Using digital part materialization and 3D sand printing technology, ExOne produced Standard Alloys’ largest RCT core to date—from concept to completion in less than eight weeks.
Andritz Ritz also sought out ExOne’s process to fast-track complex prototype and spare part production to meet tight production schedules while driving down costs. ExOne’s successful solution was to print several cores and shells for a complete mold package as well as using a hybrid approach with traditional methods to create prototype step pump housings and impellers.
It’s no secret that additive manufacturing/3D printing continues to explode, with major companies like Ford, Apple, Samsung, and GE publicly announcing the integration of the technology into their production processes. In fact, a report recently published by Research and Markets claims the 3D printing/additive manufacturing industry will be worth four billion dollars by 2025. To meet the unique needs of specific customers, ExOne has made significant investments in its material qualification research and testing with the opening of a new material characterization and testing facility in St. Clairsville, Ohio, in April 2013.
ExOne has firmly positioned itself as the leader in the industrial market, and over the past year has made significant strides to further solidify that position. The company continues to develop machines that increase print speeds and reduce lead time in an effort to continually lower the cost curve for industrial customers. ExOne’s S-Max 3Dsand printer creates complex sand casting cores and molds directly from CAD data, in about 24 to 30 hours—without hard tooling, which significantly reduces lead time, increases design freedom, and improves the entire casting process chain. ■ [/accordion_item]

THE REVERSING GRINDER PUMP
Zoeller Company has been selling its innovative reversible grinder pumps for over twenty years. Often referred to as being bi-directional, the star cutter operates in a shearing fashion, rotating in the opposite direction from that of its previous cycle. Before Zoeller incorporated this feature into its design, this method of cutting was thought to be superior to any other being used.
When the 2 horsepower model was introduced in 1993, the benefit of the reversible cutting action was immediately noted as the roping effect that clogged other grinder pumps was not found in systems where the reversing grinder pumps were being used. A few years later it was discovered that the cutter’s design, with it shearing type cutting action, had a longer than expected service life as it was able to utilize both sides of the cutter blades.
Later, with thousands of units in service, customers wanted larger reversible grinder pumps for use in their commercial and municipal lift stations so 3, 5, and 7.5 horsepower models were introduced. Then, to meet customer requirements, they were designed for hazardous locations with a third-party Class I Division 1 Group C & D rating. Users throughout the United States and Canada have benefited from this product with its efficient cutting action and dependable service.

Our ProFlex® 700 check valves never fail to close in the event of slurry or tailings settling on the discharge side!
The simple design allows effluent to force the two opposing rubber lips apart permitting flow, yet quickly closes preventing return of tailings or slurries with as little as 1 to 2 inches of back pressure. Even at low head pressures or maximum flood conditions, the ProFlex® 700 valve will continue to provide full port flow while standing ready for the first chance of back pressure or return flow. The installation and maintenance of a ProFlex® 700 valve is trouble-free and can be installed without need for heavy equipment or electrical services.

The YD-25A6GWN (the newest of World Chemical’s GWN series) is a unique submersible pump. It is a magnetic drive submersible pump, which means no seals or lubrication oils to contaminate the area of operation. In addition, its Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polypropylene (CFR-PP) construction allows the pump to resist even the most corrosive acids and alkalis. The pump’s lowest suction point of only 0.4 inches (10 millimeters) makes it possible to transfer the most from each tank, saving costs on expensive liquids.
The YD-25A6GWN can be used in a wide variety of applications, from foamy chemicals, pumping liquids up from breakwater / broiler rooms, and even environments where the surface layers may be frozen. Its lightweight (30 pounds) and simple (can be used anywhere with an available power source) design makes this pump an ideal choice for emergency situations, where the time to transport and install equipment is critical. ■ [/accordion_item]
