Pumps that are used to pump paint, adhesives and similar chemicals have to satisfy high requirements. To pump viscous or abrasive fluids, or fluids with high solids content, the industry needs highly developed technology. The company says it offers pumps that are both heavy-duty and easy to maintain, providing customized solutions suitable for every application.

IQ rotary lobe pump for paints

In the rotary lobe pumps of the IQ series, all parts that come into contact with the pumped media, such as the pump cover, pump housing and connectors, are made from stainless steel and are therefore resistant to aggressive fluids. The lobes can be made from a variety of materials (elastomeric coating, solid stainless steel or polyurethane), depending on the properties of the pumped media. The fluid buffer is integrated as a standard feature preventing dry running of the pump while at the same time increasing its suction capacity.

The pump chamber on the IQ series consists of one centrally located part and can be dismounted in a few easy steps. This allows on-site access to the pumping elements for servicing and maintenance work while the pump itself remains securely screwed into the pipe. The number of essential spare parts has been halved resulting in a significant reduction in cost and time required to replace wear parts.

VX series – rotary lobe pump for media with high foreign matter content

The pumps of the VX series are reliable in abrasive and viscous media with high foreign matter content, such as paints, sealants, adhesives and similar chemicals. Their design makes them robust and easy to maintain. They also have good priming properties and are resistant to dry running. The flow direction of these pumps can be reversed in order for containers and tanks to be filled and emptied. Pulsation-free HiFlo rotary lobes ensure gentle pumping and work well for media and substances that are sensitive to shearing forces.

Pumps of the VX series reliably pump paints, sealants, adhesives, and similar chemicals.

Vogelsang will be at the European Coatings Show, Nuremberg exhibition center, Hall 5, Booth 5-421 from 4 – 6 April 2017.
