French family-owned pump maker Jump has expanded its pump offering, and all of the company’s pumps can now be adapted for ATEX Zone 2 environments.
In a development process and to meet the growing needs of handling flammable liquids or combustible materials, Jump has certified its eccentric disc pump range JE Series for Zone 1.
The product range’s pumps, available in six sizes, comply with the 2014/34/UE Directive on equipment and protection systems and can reach flow rates of up to 96m3/h.
The JE Series technology allows the seamless transfer of various fluids, liquids to viscous, for many industries such as food industry, chemical, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, energy, mines, etc.
Jump manufactures its equipment in ductile iron, stainless cast iron, or 316L stainless steel depending on the application.
The JE Series pumps can be adapted for sensitive, abrasive, or corrosive products and are also compatible with different types of connections (PN16 or PN20 flanges, hose barb, clamp, SMS, DIN, MACON, etc.) allowing for simple integration into existing facilities.
Jump eccentric disc pumps retain the integrity and quality of the pumped product due to a very low shear rate and reduced pulsations.
In addition, all elements can be removed from the front without uncoupling the pump from the piping and the motor, thus allowing easy access inside the pump to the mechanical seal cartridge.
Now available for use in potentially explosive atmospheres Zone 1, the JE Series pump is manufactured to be conductive to prevent electrical hazards and is designed to protect against internal and external explosions.
The JE Series pumps are also self-priming and reversible, with dry run capabilities and strong suction and compression power.
They feature flow rates of up to 96m3/h at a maximum speed of 1,000 rpm, and can handle temperatures from -5°C to 250°C.
