Ink Pumps for Printing Machines

PAB application 2
Magazines, packaging, wrapping, newspapers, and catalogues are often printed using rotogravure and flexographic printing procedures.

These printing machines are equipped with several inking units, which are each supplied by an ink pump.

The PA and PN series Spandau Pumpen are perfectly suited for this use.
These centrifugal pumps, which are certified according to the ATEX Explosive Atmospheres Directive, can transport solvent and aqueous inks, paints, varnishes, and cleaning fluids.

All components in the PAB series are machine washable. The motor can be detached from the pump using two quick-release fasteners. Therefore the pump is easy to clean and it is possible to change inks quickly.

With critical media or environmental conditions, explosion protected motors provide the required operational safety in protection classes "increased safety" (EExe) and "flame-proof enclosure" (EExd).

The pumps are also available with a special coating which ensures protection against corrosion even during storage following the cleaning process.
