inox plus 6.0 - Pool attractions resistant to salt water
The use of stainless steel components in swimming pools with salt water is a highly complex subject. Especially in cases where the salt concentration specified in the manufacturer's instructions is exceeded, electrochemical corrosion of the stainless steel begins with visible undesired consequences. Stainless steel elements such as holding grips, faceplates or flanges develop rust marks, and other components also develop a brownish colouring. Until now, we have recommended our customers with high salt concentrations to use high-quality stainless steel DIN 1.4539, AISI 904L or, as a budget-oriented approach, high-performance PVC or ABS plastics. To increase the design freedom and application perspectives of architects, designers, dealers and pool builders, an optimised stainless steel surface was specially developed for saline pools. This innovation project was sponsored by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi). inoxplus6.0 is our answer to the complex challenge of salt water. This new high-tech stainless steel can be used for salt concentrations of up to 6% (please note that the average salt concentration in seawater is 3.5%). We have chosen a small but excellent selection of counter-current units, hydro massage nozzles and luchs® underwater spotlights from our product portfolio available to you. Regarding pump components, we recommend our WK or SMK series attraction pumps with a housing and impeller made of high-quality corrosion-resistant plastic. With our inoxplus6.0 quality swimming pool attractions, we provide you with products which, in terms of their design, attractive appearance and quality, add to the sophisticated ambience of any pool. We will be presenting this product innovation to the public for the first time at the Piscine Global trade show in November 2016 in Lyon. Please don't hesitate to talk to us – we're very eager to have your opinion.

Counter current unit X-jet received
Our counter current unit X-jet received the “Plus X Award 2016”, the world’s largest innovation award for technology, sports and lifestyle in five categories – design, innovation, high quality, ease of use and functionality. In addition the X-jet has been awarded for “Best product of the year 2016/2017”. Due to the newly developed flow-optimized flat jet the outlet flow does not hit the swimmer as with conventional counter currents, but creates a wide area output flow. Due to the modular method of construction, multiple single jets can be installed next to each other in the pool and operated by pumps with different capacities and power. The unit is suitable for professional demands, for training, for young and old, for the whole family and every size of pool. This design is characterized by the reduction of shape to the essential and waives the ornamental elements. The overall impression appears to be very simple and pure. This results in a harmonious unity of aesthetics, technology, function and use. The flat and rectangular construction of the X-jet nozzle integrates harmoniously into todays, mostly cubic designed, modern pool areas. The X-jet is made of salt-water resistant stainless steel in brushed or polished execution. The used material and surface are consciously shown in visual contrast to tiles, liners, plastic materials and concrete, which are used in swimming pool construction. The newly developed touch sensitive buttons with its large diameter and its haptic symbols facilitate underwater operation for both young and old. The buttons can also be installed separately in the house or at the pool. The speed-controlled pump can also be controlled through external terminal systems of other producers. Thereby programmable training units (timed and/or staged) are possible. The independent and international jury of the “Plus X Award” represents 26 industries. Award-worthy are newly developed products and intelligent control concepts. But also ergonomic, ecologic and sustainable product properties are valued.

High temperature series Type THK-HT
The THK series is a special design for easy delivery of hot liquids with an uncooled mechanical seal. It is used primarily for circulation of hot liquids in closed pipes and tank systems. Applications with high temperatures in the field of energy production, heat transfer and the process technic set high standards for the construction of the required pumps. The THK series are designed specifically for pumping of these hot liquids. They are suitable for installation in tanks and due to the special shaft seals will easily handle liquids of up to 230°C. A heat dissipator protects the drive motor from excessive thermal loads. With this specification THK-HT series are ready for continuous operation. One application is for example the paint stripping of metallic components. So far block pumps were used here, which failed due to the high temperatures caused by damage to mechanical seals and motors. A small design change now allows the use of an immersible pump. The advantages of this design are very diverse.

Centrifugal pumps for highly abrasive media
Pump components are to a large degree subject to thermal, mechanical and corrosive stress. Schmalenberger has dedicated itself for many years to the development of corrosion and wear-resistant coatings for standard materials which ensure safe and efficient operation, and our objective is to develop coatings which offer a high degree of tribological and anti-corrosive protection, while simultaneously being composed of basic materials which are easy to process. In discussions concerning life cycle costs of machines and systems, one easily forgets that high shutdown costs are accumulated as a result of premature wear suffered by centrifugal pumps. Schmalenberger provides its customers with three different options which ensure a long service life and optimum life cycle costs (LCC) in relation to the conveyance of abrasive liquids. 1. Thermochemical heat treatment through nitrocarburising 2. Rubberising 3. Ultra-hard materials for highly corrosive media

Pumping without air inclusions
Air inclusions encountered during pumping of media pose, in many regards, a variety of problems. Pumps cannot reach their full capacity during suctioning, the motor is overloaded and foam formation complicates delivery. A venting valve from Schmalenberger provides help in this respect. The ½ inch valve can be retrofitted and enables the rapid venting of air in the pump system. As a result, maximum pumping capacity is achieved again, rapidly and without complications, while additional foam formation in the pumped medium and dry running of the pump motor are prevented. The IPE valve was specially developed for SM series self-priming waste water pumps. In addition to relieving stress on the pump motor, the IPE valve primarily embodies economic advantages, as preventing performance losses saves energy.
