The Ex version of VISCOFLUX lite opens new opportunities across a diverse range of industries, such as chemicals or surface finishing technology. For example it is suitable for supplying machinery and fast-running plant with lubricating greases in zone 1. Alternatively it can be used for pumping zone 0/1 flammable media such as various base materials for paints and lacquer manufacturing as well as numerous coatings and fillers.
Residual volume in drum up to less than 1 %To continuously and gently transport higher-viscosity materials which are just capable of flowing, FLUX engineers use eccentric worm-drive pumps. In combination with a follower plate, a vacuum is created during pumping causing the follower plate to lower. In doing so the process seal of the follower plate hermetically seals the remaining material thus preventing unwanted emissions and changes to the product.
Even if the pumping operation should be interrupted, a maximum degree of process reliability is guaranteed. Finally, almost no material remains on the wall of the drum. Users have the benefit of an almost complete emptying of the drum and thus an efficient utilisation of the material. As with the VISCOFLUX and VISCOFLUX mobile, with VISCOFLUX lite the residual material which remains in the drum is up to less than 1 %.
Launch at the ACHEMA 2015The VISCOFLUX lite in Ex version will be available from the ACHEMA 2015. Come and visit us during 15. and 19. June at our stand (hall 8, stand E10) and convince yourself of the qualities of this drum emptying system.
