The DICKOW pump series KM are sealless centrifugal pumps. The static containment shell forms a closed system with hermetically sealed liquid end. Model AMB pumps match ANSI casing dimensions.
Magnetic driven KM-pumps are designed to improve plant and personnel safety. Especially when handling toxic, explosive or other dangerous liquids which react on contact with the atmosphere. The KM-pumps operate maintenance-free and their containment shells replace double acting mechanical seals, along with external fluid reservoirs and the necessary control equipment.
Maximum capacity appr. 70 m3/h (300 US-gpm), differential head 65 mLC (213 ft). Temperature range -30°C to 200°C (390°F), working pressure 16 bar (232 psi).
Field of application
The side-channel pumps are self-priming and operate more economically (better efficiency) than normal centrifugal pumps, when handling low flows and high heads. Due to these facts, the side-channel pumps are appropriate to solve many pumping problems in industrial processes. They can be used for almost all liquids which are free of any abrasive solids and of suitable viscosity. The vertical side-channel pumps are suitable especially for tank farms with underground storage tanks with a diameter of max. 2,5 m (8.2 ft). The construction of the pumps enables an installation directly on the dome cover. That means, suction lift is only slightly above the tank diameter and the priming pipe can be kept short. For handling toxic, explosive and other dangerous liquids in chemical and petrochemical industries, a sealless pump design with permanent magnetic coupling - without shaft duct to the atmosphere - is also available. Since the static containment shell forms a closed system with hermetically sealed liquid end, an operation with zero leakage is granted. These pumps are maintenance free because no shaft sealing is provided.
The DICKOW® submersible pump, type NCT, for the chemical industry is a vertical pump with separate discharge pipe.
The maximum capacity goes up to 700 m³/h. Higher capacities are available on request.
The pump type NCT has been developed for chemical, petrochemical and related industries. With a wide selection of materials, the DICKOW® submersible pumps are suitable for handling almost all liquids which are used in above mentioned industries.
For example: acids, lyes, hydrocarbons, condensation products, solvents etc.
