Pump monitoring with Atex certification

Monday, April 23rd, 2018 von admin

At this year’s Achema, Allweiler will exhibit its intelligent condition and operation monitoring system (hall 8.0, booth D63). Known as IN-1000, it is now also available with Atex certification for use in EX zones. IN-1000 was developed specifically for Allweiler pumps that are used in operationally-critical and environmentally-sensitive applications in chemical engineering.

The IN-1000 can be used for a wide range of condition monitoring applications, from simple, single-pump installations to complex, multi-pump systems while improving safety and reducing operating costs simultaneously.

Wilden: 13 mm (½”) Clamped Metal Pump

Friday, September 1st, 2017 von admin

This 13 mm (½”) clamped metal AODD pump PS1 is equipped with the energy-efficient Pro-Flo Shift Air Distribution System and its clamped configuration allows for easier maintenance, diaphragm replacement and cleaning.

The footprint of this AODD pump matches that of the Wilden PX1, which enables direct replacement of a PX1 with no repiping necessary. With less components and 7% more efficient than the PX1, the backward capability of the PS1 makes it an easy way to enhance and upgrade existing pump performance.

Siemens: All-steel multi-disk couplings acc. API and Atex

Friday, June 23rd, 2017 von admin

Siemens presented an additional series in the range of torsionally rigid all-steel disc couplings: the new N-Arpex coupling with improved performance characteristics. An optimized disc pack and a revised component design facilitate the transmission of higher torques and speeds as well as a higher bore capacity with standard hubs. All-steel couplings can be used in all applications that require reliable torque transmission in set-ups with shaft displacement.

Flotronic: The One-Nut Design for hygienic AODD

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017 von admin

UK specialist pump manufacturer Flotronic Pumps Limited was founded by Lew Norris in 1981. The engineering design consultancy ‘Norris Brothers’ had been involved in the design of  specialist pumps since 1952.  Lew Norris’ new company pioneered the air-operated, double-diaphragm ‘One-Nut’ pump. Flotronic’s ‘One-Nut’ design allows quick pump disassembly for inspection, cleaning and maintenance – delivering a massive benefit for pump users in terms of reduced down-time, particularly as the pump can be inspected or maintained in line without disconnection of pipework. Flotronic remains the only British-owned specialist manufacturer of air-operated, double-diaphragm pumps in the UK.

KTR: Pump coupling for explosive atmospheres

Monday, March 9th, 2015 von admin

ktr-3The jaw geometry of the Rotex Non-Sparking consists of a conductive high-tenacity plastic that is injected onto the hub body which continues to be made of steel or other metals such as aluminium. The newly developed synthetic material prevents any static charging and is also designed to be so hardwearing that even in cases of elastomer wear out, torque will still be transmitted without any danger of sparking. As a result, maintenance work can be postponed to a convenient time frame. The failsafe and maintenance-free Rotex Non-Sparking is certified under EU directive 94/9/EC (ATEX 95) and thus deemed suitable for the use in explosive atmospheres.

Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum: Atex Certificate for Steel Degassing Vacuum Systems

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014 von admin

OLV PIC 2 (2)In all processes for steel degassing under vacuum gases and vapors are formed that might be dangerous. Essentially CO and H2 as well as the vapors of volatile metals are released from the steel surface. Explosion protection in vacuum plants especially those that generate a large quantity of CO by the use of oxygen for decarburization so far has been assured by overpressure flaps at the metallurgical reaction vessels, alarm devices for water leakage, sensors for pressure and temperature as well as emergency venting with nitrogen. With the introduction of mechanical vacuum pumps efficient installations for gas cooling and dust separation became necessary.
