Bungartz will be showing its hermetically sealed all-ceramic chemical pump K-MPCV-AN at ACHEMA 2018, Hall 8, Stand C 1.

The centrifugal pump of type MPCV is a dry-running, self-regulating and hermetically sealed design. The vertical pump does not require a minimum volume flow or a large static head. The 3-phase is now available as an all-ceramic version K-MPCV-AN.

The chemical pump MPCV was designed for pumping extreme media which hot, corrosive and abrasive, such as ammonium nitrate with dolomite, iron oxide, gypsum and dust slurries.

Dry running

Equipped with a magnetic coupling and roller bearings, which are permanently dry-running, the K-MPCV-AN operates without bearings in the pumping liquid. The shaft gap seal concept is based on the hydrodynamic relief of the bearing and seal unit. Back vanes and a gas barrier prevent product vapors from penetrating the bearing unit.

The grease-lubricated roller bearings can give service lives of more than five years in continuous operation. The eddy current-free magnetic coupling means that the pump hermetically seals itself against its surrounding environment.
