Vogelsang presents pump series for chemical and paint applications

Hugo Vogelsang Maschinenbau, a Germany-based machinery manufacturer, presents the IQ and VX series of rotary lobe pumps from Vogelsang for the chemical paint industry.

“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,” said Harald Vogelsang, managing director at Hugo Vogelsang Maschinenbau.

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 IQ series pumps are “exceptionally” user-friendly in their design, with the pump chamber consisting 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.

Variable connectors make installation suitable and easier for all common scenarios.

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, and 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, being ideal for media and substances that are sensitive to shearing forces.
