Pumps New Pump Series and Retrofit Kits for Frequent Product Changes
Maag Group is launching the new FQ series/kit for the existing pump portfolio. Another revolutionary and innovative pump version in the industrial product portfolio, the ‘FQ’ keeps up with the new-age fast paced production processes, lifting the capabilities of the external gear pumps to ease the extreme needs of the customer and the industry, like never before!
This FQ – ‘quick cleaning’ version is being released for the production facilities with a constant need to clean and wash the transfer line at the end of each production batch, different colours, different additives, etc. The pump can be disassembled at the quickest without needing to dismantle the drive shaft from the drive motor and the seal, states the company.
This feature can be applied also on the existing pump series – CX, TX, FX, DX by using the new kit or the pump can be selected as a FQ model itself.
The new series can change the production and maintenance style of the customers without compromising on the desired operating characteristics. The kit provides high flexibility and functionality with easy maintenance and part replacement possibilities, adds the firm.
Moreover, to accommodate varied range of process fluids and flowrates, the seal flange can accommodate different pump sizes, for example, the DX 20 can be converted to DX 20/10 or 20/5 and FX 22 can be converted to FX 22/14 or FX 20/8. According to the company, in this way, the drive configuration and seal flange can be retained and there can be a possibility to have variations in flow rate depending on the size of the pump that will be installed.
The new pump series is currently available for the following sizes:
• DX 20/20 - 20/10 - 20/5
• FX 45 - 36 - 28 - 22 - 22/14 - 22/8
• CX/TX 45 - 36 - 28 - 22
Since the FQ version is unique, the feature is protected by the patent.
