The team from Colfax Fluid Handling partnered with our Saudi Arabia distributor, Kanoo, and exhibited at the 2012 SABIC Technical and Innovation conference. The show was a success and we thank the organizers and our partner, Kanoo, for their support and effort. This show was particularly important for Colfax Fluid Handling as it marked the introduction of our facility in Dammam, Saudi Arabia. This facility aims to manufacture API 614 lubrication systems in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
During the show, we were able to discuss various applications and opportunities with visitors including:
- Warren and Houttuin branded pumps for tank farm and port tank terminal business units for export, shipping, loading/unloading pump applications for a range of end user liquid products
- Zenith branded injection pumps/systems for high pressure liquid catalyst injection for the reactors in a polymer processing plants
- IMO & Allweiler branded 3 screw pumps for handling shear sensitive Polyols and liquid styrene used for the manufacture of Polyurethanes
- Warren & Houttuin branded 2-screw pumps used in the Carbon Black plants (for Elastomers & Rubber manufacturing) for anti-foulant charge pumps, binder (aqueous lignosulfonate solution) transfer pumps and Coal tar feed pumps all involving the injection and transfer of viscous and challenging process liquids for critical petrochemical plant applications.

The Power Gen International is one of Colfax Fluid Handling's most important annual shows. At this show, we're able to connect with multiple customers - both current and prospective as well as tell the world about some of the good things that we're doing under the Colfax umbrella. We've found this show to be a prosperous venue for connecting with EPC (Engineering and Procurement Companies), Power Plant operators and Rotating Equipment suppliers.
This show also marks the first time that Howden and Colfax Fluid Handling have exhibited under the Colfax umbrella. We're fortunate to work with Howden as they have many positive and longstanding relationships within the Power market. Here are some photos -

If you have the opportunity, we invite you to check out the updated Zenith website. Our goal was to provide users with information regarding the performance of Zenith branded metering pumps and systems as well as detailed information on market applications. Site visitors will also be able to learn about metering pumps and find answers to common questions in the knowledge center.
If you are able to visit, let us know what you think. We look forward to hearing from you.Antonio Mendoza Product Specialist Colfax Fluid Handling
"When evaluating pumps for biomass applications, we recommend approaching pump selection from a holistic viewpoint. Several different types of pumps, including positive displacement and centrifugal, can be used in the process as the materials are broken down and converted. Ideally, a pump supplier should be chosen on its ability to offer products that match the specification requirements, as well as knowledge of how the pump interacts with the system and materials."
"The physical properties of the material and aggressiveness through the system also have a significant impact on the pump. Pump materials and coatings, shaft seals and the operating point should be specifically adapted to the pump and system. Be sure to communicate the material and system properties to potential pump suppliers."
