Maag Industrial has released its new F-Series gear pump, which includes the DX Dosix with improved dosing accuracy and the FX Flexinox, which is a more flexible alternative to the existing CX and TX.
Claudio Bonafede, managing director of Maag Italy, said that during the development of the series, the company had tested several types of gear shafts in steels and plastics, PEEK and other materials to see their different advantages and flexibility. He added: “For this new series, we have the chance to use the new Z16 with sixteen teeth for the FX and the Z14 with fourteen teeth for the DX.”
The new series has a modular design, which facilitates flexible configuration and so adapts better to the needs of customers and processes. The modular design also simplifies cleaning and maintenance work.
The company says that the advantage for Maag and its customers is that the key components of the new series - the gear shaft, bearing and seal - remain the same which allows customers to use the new F Series with existing spare parts.
