Bungartz Presents a Further Advancement of its Proven Pump Type MPCVAN

Squaring the circle: Intrinsic safe centrifugal pumps type MPCVAN

The intrinsically safe MPCVAN is designed for pumping demanding fluids. The magnetically driven vertical pump is hermetically sealed and failure safe against wrong operation. The shaft seal concept is based on the complete hydrodynamic relief of the shaft seal and the bearing unit. The penetration of product fluid or vapours into the shaft seal area is prevented by impeller back vanes during operation and a gas barrier during stand-still. Even with fluids that are hot, abrasive and corrosive the same time, the MPCVAN is extremely low-maintenance thanks to this Bungartz design logic of “no fluid at the shaft seal increases the mean time to repair. This is also the topic of the accompanying presentation to be held by Michael Wolf, Regional Director Asia-Pacific Bungartz Pumps.

The operation of the MPCVAN pump will be clearly demonstrated on a functional model. Visitors can watch or even “play” themselves with the MPCVAN when pumping gas or out of vacuum. It gets even more exciting when the visitor directs his attention towards the impeller backvanes. What happens during operation and what happens at standstill?

"To see is to believe", explains Dipl.-Ing. Frank Bungartz, Managing Director of the company of the same name. He invites interested people to actively experience "Bungartz in Motion" in the German Pavilion, Hall 1, Booth C5D.
