ATEX Diaphragm Pump in HDPE/PTFE

The ATEX Diaphragm Pump can be used in applications within Zone 1 of the ATEX directive, CAT 2 which is for uses where flammable material is sometimes present in normal operation.

The pigment in the plastic that the pump is manufactured from causes the black colour but this does not effect the chemical resistance of the thermoplastics. The pump is still the same solid block, reliable design as our other HDPE & PTFE Diaphragm Pumps with the additional benefit of the conductive pigment in the plastic reducing the surface resistance of the pump.

The TX ATEX HDPE & PTFE Pump has diaphragms in PTFE (with conductive back) or EPDM (conductive). An earth connection is mounted on the pump, for earthing of electrostatic loads. The TX variant can be supplied across all sizes of AOD Pumps.

Simple Reliable Design

The ATEX HDPE/PTFE Diaphragm Pump features the same solid block design as the other plastic pumps in our range. This ensures that the pump has a reduced likelihood of leaking where other Diaphragm Pumps on the market may struggle, for example, weakened moulded plastic, multiple edges where moulded plastic is joined together to make the product’s shape, to name a few.

This is a key feature, particularly when pumping a product that requires ATEX rating as it is extremely important that dangerous or expensive product is not able to escape into the surrounding atmosphere. When supplied with our clean face, no-nut diaphragms, our pumps are perfect for handling these types of liquids and reducing the risk of leakages significantly.

The ATEX directive (also known as ATEX 100a) is applicable to products used in hazardous areas such as those subject to explosions, like our ATEX Diaphragm Pump in HDPE & PTFE. This directive also covers non-electrical products, like our Air-Operated Diaphragm Pumps.

Since July 2003, it is now mandatory to have an ATEX Certificate on products which are intended for use in EX-zones (within the EU). There are three main categories (zones) in the ATEX directive:

  • CAT 1 (zone 0), flammable material present continuously or for long periods
  • CAT 2 (zone 1), flammable material present occasionally in normal operation
  • CAT 3 (zone 2), flammable material present in abnormal conditions for short periods
