Screw pumps play an important role in various aspects of everyday life. From sewage and wastewater treatment to the extraction and processing of raw materials and manufacturing of finished products, the applications are almost endless. Twin screw pumps are self-priming, double ended positive displacement pumps with external timing gears and bearings. The twin-screw pump is made up of two inter-meshing screws that move the pumped fluid. The design of twin screw pumps are responsible for providing the axial balancing of the rotating elements and eradicating metal-to-metal contact inside the pump and make them suitable for dry running.
These twin screw pumps consist of one set of shafts, one driving and other driven with two screws mounted and keyed onto each shaft. A twin screw pump has two intermeshing screws placed parallel to one another with small gaps in between so there is no direct contact between two screws, therefore allowing for better performance in pumping of non-lubricating, corrosive or contaminated fluids. The twin screw pump technology has been around for a long period, but only lately has it been used in sanitary pump applications. These pumps are specifically suited to very low inlet pressure applications.
Twin screw pumps have played a major role for many years within the group of displacement pumps for hygiene applications. These pumps are often used when pumping conditions contain high gas volume fractions and fluctuating inlet conditions, and were primarily used for the transportation of oil products. However, in the past few years, twin screw pumps have firmly established itself in the food and beverage industries as well as in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and fine chemicals. The innovative pumps fulfill very high quality standards and are made entirely of stainless steel.
The key driver identified for the global twin screw pumps market is growing demand for energy, consequently leading to a tremendous upsurge in offshore exploration and production activities which has in turn led to an increased demand for twin screw pumps. Additionally, manufacturers are launching hygienic screw pumps which have seen increased applications across food and beverages industry and pharmaceutical sector for pumping various fluids and food products that needs to be protected from contaminants.
In the past few years, the booming growth in the oil and gas, chemical processing, and food and beverage industries have created enormous opportunities for the global twin screw pumps market. The global market for twin screw pumps is segmented on the basis of product type, suction type, and application. Based on product type, the market is fragmented into sealed twin screw pump and non-sealed twin screw pump. On the basis of suction type, the market is divided into single suction type and double suction type. The market is further segmented based on application into oil & gas industry, chemical industry, pharmaceuticals, shipbuilding industry, power industry, and others.
Based on region, the global twin screw pump market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the market in the coming years owing to the huge demand for screw pumps from the oil & gas industry. Furthermore, rapid industrialization, upsurge in infrastructural development projects, and improving standard of living in the APAC region is propelling the need for better sanitation, subsequently aiding the demand for twin screw pumps.
The twin screw pump market is highly fragmented with the presence of various players. Leading vendors in the market are ITT Bornemann GmbH, Leistritz Group, Sulzer Ltd., FMC Technologies, Inc., General Electric Company, Baker Hughes Incorporated, CIRCOR International, Flowserve Corporation, OneSubsea, SPX FLOW, Klaus Union, Pumpenfabrik Wangen GmbH and HMS Group among others. Manufacturers are increasingly focusing on designing products using better raw materials, and technological innovations aimed at improved performance and precise machining capabilities.
