KHD And MWM Form New Diesel

Engine Group—Literature Available

Two major European engine man- ufacturers, KHD, Klockner-Hum- boldt-Deutz AG of Cologne, and

MWM, Motoren-Werke Mannheim

AG of Mannheim, have merged to form Deutz/MWM. The new diesel engine group will offer one of the broadest power ranges of engines in the world.

This merger brings together two leading engine builders with a total of more than 230 years' experience, as well as a combined reputation for quality, durability and service excel- lence.

The KHD Group engine division will be restructured with all activi- ties concerning the water-cooled en- gine business being combined at

MWM AG in Mannheim. KHD will relocate its medium-sized and big engine activities in development, sales and parts manufacturing to

Mannheim in combination with the engine program of MWM. The me- dium-sized and big engines built in

Mannheim and Cologne will be manufactured under the trade name


The formation of Deutz/MWM will offer an expanded range of ma- rine and stationary prime movers, in propulsion and electric power gen- eration, to both North America and the world market.

The Ingersoll-Rand Company,

Charlotte, N.C., recently announced the introduction of the X-FLO steam turbo compressor. Peter

Baldwin, vice president and divi- sion general manager, Single Stage

Product Division, said the steam model is "identical in its revolution- ary aerodynamic design to the new

Ingersoll-Rand X-FLO mixed flow air/gas compressor, but it is fabri- cated specifically to withstand steam's highly corrosive proper- ties."

The X-FLO Steam model in- cludes a 316 stainless steel volute with insulation and shrouding to minimize heat loss. Impellers can be made of 17-4 PH stainless steel or titanium. A special labyrinth seal for the injection and/or extraction of buffer steam is also standard.

As with the air/gas X-FLO, the steam model features stainless steel need quality fasteners?

The X-FLO Steam configura- tion's performance specifications in- clude 1,000 to 75,000 cfm, Adiabatic heads to 43,000 feet and compres- sion ratios of up to 2:1.

According to the manufacturer, the X-FLO's unique design is ideal- ly suited for higher flow capacities and pressures normally associated with single-stage centrifugal de- signs. Reportedly, all X-FLO mod- els offer some advantages over con- ventional centrifugal compressors including: smaller size; easier instal- lation and start-up; substantial en- ergy savings in most cases; and low- er installation, operation and main- tenance costs.

The X-FLO Steam compressor is especially useful for vapor recom- pressions processes, where steam is recycled for evaporation, distilla- tion, drying, concentration or crys- tallization. literature on the new company and the products they offer,
