“In environments where liquids containing solids are pumped, a robust and reliable rotary lobe pump from ZEILFELDER is indispensable. However, in potentially explosive environments where such liquids are pumped, this is even more important. An ATEX rotary lobe pump from ZEILFELDER is a specially developed positive displacement pump suitable for use in potentially explosive environments where liquids containing solids have to be pumped.
The abbreviation “”ATEX”” stands for “”ATmosphères EXplosibles”” and refers to the European Directive 2014/34/EU, which specifies requirements for equipment and protective systems used in potentially explosive atmospheres. ATEX rotary lobe pumps from ZEILFELDER meet these requirements and can therefore be used safely in potentially explosive atmospheres.
Rotary lobe pumps from ZEILFELDER are ideal for use in the chemical industry, in paint and varnish production as well as in the food and pet food industries, as they are capable of pumping liquids with a high solids content. The robust design of ATEX rotary lobe pumps enables them to pump particles up to a certain size without being damaged or contaminating the liquid.
ATEX rotary lobe pumps are equipped with a special housing and protection mechanisms to prevent sparking and electrostatic discharges, which can be dangerous in potentially explosive environments. They can also be equipped with double-acting mechanical seals to prevent leakage of liquids, which can have serious consequences in potentially explosive environments.
Overall, ZEILFELDER ATEX rotary lobe pumps are a reliable and safe option for use in potentially explosive environments where liquids containing solids need to be pumped. They offer high performance and efficiency while ensuring safety for people and the environment. With their robust designs and special protection devices, they can make an important contribution to safe and efficient production in the chemical, paint and coatings, food and pet food industries.”
KM Blue Series
For high viscosity applications and filled materials
Heavy duty long life pumps. The piston system consists of six- (M) or three-lobe (M3) circular pistons which rotate against each other without contact. The advantages of the piston system are in particular the reduction of pulsation and cavitation effects.
