Dover Corporation’s Pump Solutions Group has launched its Wilden Advanced and Original X Series Metal and Plastic air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pumps which comply with the ATEX 95 directive for explosive atmospheres.
The ATEX directive consists of two European Union directives that describe what equipment is allowed in an explosive atmosphere. The Wilden metallic X Series pumps comply with ATEX 94/9/EC Group I, category M2 and Group II, category 2, zones G and D. Wilden’s plastic X Series pumps comply with ATEX 94/9EC Group II, category 2, zone G.
Wilden also offers a range of metal and plastic pumps, whose parts feature a special ATEX marking that indicates the suitable ATEX categories where the pump can be installed. The pumps’ Retrofit Kits utilize the Accu-Flo, Turbo-Flo, Pro-Flo and Pro-Flo V air-distribution systems and are constructed of electrically and statically dissipative materials, with a wide variety of appropriate elastomer options.
