The intrinsically safe laser shaft alignment systems Optalign smart EX and Rotalign smart EX with the new intrinsically safe Bluetooth module are now available. All active measurement components comply with the stringent ATEX and IECEx directives for Class II 2 G Ex ib [ib] IIC T4, Zone 1. Nowit is possible to work ‘wireless’ in explosive environments.


Flotronic: Pump machined out of a solid block of PTFE

Monday, January 30th, 2012 von admin

The UK-based specialist pump manufacturer Flotronic already had a solution to aggressive chemicals handling requiring a high flow rate – the Chemflo. The challenge was to produce a cost-effective pump that could handle aggressive chemicals and other products at lower flow rates.  The new pump also needed to transfer material at temperatures up to 80°C and be ATEX-compliant and ultra-safe. The turning point in developing a solution came from a simple enquiry. Could a pump be machined out of a solid block of PTFE? And so the ‘Minichem’ was born –a n air-operated double diaphragm pump, machined from one solid block of PTFE.
