API 685 canned motor pump by Nikkiso-KSB
The API pump made by Nikkiso-KSB meets the requirements of the API 685 standard and the ATEX Directives. This means the canned motor pump satisfies the most exacting demands in refineries and the petrochemical industry.
Benefits of the canned motor pump:
- Space-saving due to compact design and the option of vertical installation
- Close-coupled design does away with the need to align motor and pump
- Vertical installation makes pump start-up with liquefied gases much easier
- Straightforward operation without complex mechanical seal and thermosyphon systems
- Reliable handling of liquefied gases and hydrocarbons with low boiling points
- Particularly robust with API 685 specifying forces and moments four times higher than usual
- Condition monitoring with electronic monitor allows scheduling of maintenance work.
- Particularly robust thanks to middle support and API 685 specifying forces and moments four times higher than usual
- Reduced installation costs as the close-coupled design does away with the need to align pump and motor
- Safe venting thanks to vertical installation, especially for liquefied gases
- Environmentally-friendly with very low noise emission
