CECO Environmental’s CE/ATEX certified air-cooled and heavy duty high temperature process pumps are now available to European chemical plants, refineries, liquid storage terminals and latex plants

CECO Environmental has announced CE and ATEX certifications for CECO Dean Pump air-cooled, high temperature RA and RWA, and heavy duty, high temperature R4000 series pumps.

“We see an unmet demand for highly reliable centrifugal pumps in explosive, high temperature, plastics and other process applications throughout the European Union countries,” said Christopher Brown, president of CECO’s Fluid Handling business. “This is significant step in better serving our customers and achieving our strategy to grow internationally.  The Dean Pumps are particularly recognized for the ability to move high temperature liquids in mission critical applications.”

Dean pumps for EU local regions

The Dean CE/ATEX certifications now make it possible for original equipment manufacturers and end user customers in the EU to specify and purchase Dean pumps in their local regions.

All certified and compliant pumps from Dean, now available for importation into the EU, will feature the CE mark, which makes them compliant with the European Union's Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC as well as the ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU. The CE/ATEX-certified pumps will carry the CE and Ex marks on product labeling. Click to read the Dean RA series, RWA series, and R4000 series declarations.

 “Our deep technical expertise dates back almost 150 years to 1869, when we started serving the most demanding markets with high temperature pumps,” said Gennaro (Jerry) D’Alterio, president, international growth and strategy for CECO’s Fluid Handling business. “Dean pumps are frequently specified across a number of applications in process industries. The certifications, along with our Dorian Drake sales partnership, will help fuel opportunities while offering the customer base with a high-quality and cost-effective pumping solution.”

Explosive atmospheres

With this certification, CECO’s high temperature Dean pumps, as identified above, now comply with ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU and are available for use in places where explosive atmospheres may arise through the mixture of air and flammable materials such as gases, vapors, mists and dusts. These conditions most commonly exist in chemical plants, refineries, liquid-storage terminals and latex plants.

The CE mark signifies that CECO Dean pumps are compliant with the EU’s health, safety and environmental legislation, including the Safety of Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, which is one of a series of mandatory standards adopted by EU member countries, and allows importation into EU countries. ATEX is the common name for EU Directive 94/9/EC, which is the European safety standard for all equipment intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.
