Diaphragm metering pumps – LEWA ecoflow
LEWA ecoflow provides the highest reliability. Featuring a wealth of standardised assemblies, LEWA’s ecoflow range of diaphragm metering pumps can be customized for practically every pumping application.
Ecoflow metering pumps incorporate the LEWA Diaphragm Protection System (DPS) that perfectly complements the range’s proven modular design and offers safe control of the diaphragm movement during operation.
In addition to modular, standardised diaphragm metering pumps, LEWA can also deliver specialised solutions to meet the customer’s requirements.
Process diaphragm pumps – LEWA ecoflow and LEWA triplex
LEWA continues to set new standards for process diaphragm pump technology in high-pressure process engineering. With a pressure range of up to 1,200bar, our process diaphragm pumps can quickly and safely transfer critical, toxic and inflammable fluids in a wide variety of operating conditions.
LEWA package engineering
The company delivers engineering and on-site commissioning services for metering and mixing applications, and supplies both proven standard packages and metering packages, tailor-made for specific applications. Competence from one source with a minimum of interfaces and consistent component selection minimizes the risk due to our functional warranty.
LEWA’s metering solutions and odorizing systems are delivered with modern electronics that enable both open and closed loop control and monitoring. LEWA meets all requirements for new systems or upgrades from proportional control up to PLC-operated systems.
LEWA CMS (condition monitoring system)
To ensure continuous operation and avoid costly and time-consuming emergency shut downs, a condition monitoring system, LEWA CMS, offers the most economic solution.
With LEWA CMS, pump life-cycle cost is lowered by reducing machine downtime, accomplished by progressing from preventive to condition-oriented maintenance and further reducing the risk of unexpected pump breakdowns and loss of production.
Best solution and technology for the customer’s benefit
LEWA’s definition of customer benefit includes more than just technical features and high standards for quality. Other important features include our after-sales capabilities, first-class service, a worldwide on-site presence and international project management. Customers are offered competent and comprehensive consulting. The process, the system approach and, in particular, economics are always the focal point.

How to Implement a Safety and Environmental Management System to Reduce Risks in Cryogenic Pump Testing
LNG facilities are built with state-of-the-art equipment and safety controls. The industry's highest priority has always been safety and security, which is reflected in its impressive safety record. In Japan, the LNG safety record provides a good indication of the industry's overall safety performance.
In designing a pumping system, controllability using variable speed to adjust pump operation can help in achieving energy savings. Increasing rotational speed above normal line frequencies and using higher speed motors lead to more compact, lighter pumps.
Submerged electric motor pumps (SEMP), operating at a cryogenic temperature in a liquid hydrocarbon environment, provide a rolling element bearing design application that meets these criteria.
In the oil and gas industry you come across diaphragm pumps with a wide performance range, from exploration over processing to transportation to the consumer.
For many years, LEWA has been continuously developing its own software for pump-piping configurations. In recent years, we developed and implemented a powerful one-dimensional fluid dynamics solver.
