FLUX Pumps for the Petrochemistry sector


Whether kerosene or turpentine, petroleum or propanol, AdBlue® or other additives: petrochemical products are not only expensive to process, they also place special demands on the filling, decanting, or metering process. At FLUX, we know exactly how the valuable energy sources can be metered and filled in a resource-saving, flexible and, above all, economical way.

Give-aways are expensive, underfilling too! Whoever wants to rigorously avoid giving away media will find a competent partner in FLUX, who can ensure lasting top performance thanks to the highest level of precision.

Pumping of additives in the petroleum industry

A variety of additives in the petroleum industry have to be added from drums, e.g. to protect machinery parts or to separate water from crude oil. The pumps have to be suitable for explosion-proof areas and for temperatures of up to 60 degrees Celsius.

Drum pump FP 424 S Ex (HT) sealess
Drum pump FP 425 S Ex (HT) for 99,98% Drum emptying
Commutator motor F 460 Ex (HT)
For the application designed accessories on request

Application description:
Our HT (High Temperature) versions are ideal for these applications in ambient temperatures and explosion-proof areas of up to 60 degrees Celsius.

In particular here, our F/FP 424 Ex and F/FP 425 Ex S (HT) drum pumps for low viscosity media are used together with the F 460 Ex (HT) commutator motors to extract the additives from the drums.

Our F/FP 424 drum pumps have no seals in contact with the liquid and offer the benefit of no wear to seals and optimum drainage of the inner tube.

The F/FP 425 drum pumps are suitable for 99.98 drum drainage and removal of residual liquid. This means that less than 0.05 l of residue remains in a 200 l drum. The built-in non-return device prevents the medium from flowing back into an emptied drum. The optimal product use eliminates the need for drum cleaning and disposal costs.
