Pumps – Petrochemistry


Electric motors for pumps used in the petrochemical industry. The power of Kolmer

The petrochemical industry is engaged in the processing of petroleum and its by-products. Petrochemistry usually takes place in oil refineries. Explosive environments, in other words. You will probably understand that downtime within the petrochemical process is catastrophic for the producer. Has the process come to a standstill? Then everything has to be cleaned first before it can be started up again. This takes a lot of time and is expensive. The solution? Redundant installations. In the event of an emergency, you can quickly switch to another pump. This guarantees the continuity of the process.

Electric motors in petrochemical applications in accordance with the applicable guidelines.

It is important that the electric motors used for pumps in the petrochemical industry are explosion-proof and that they comply with certain ATEX guidelines. ATEX covers all situations where there is an explosion risk. The acronym stands for Atmosphere Explosible. It is important that companies and organisations working in potentially explosive atmospheres take measures to ensure the safety of their employees.

The stock at Kolmer Electric Motors includes standard electric motors that meet ATEX standards. However, it’s not just the motor by itself, but also the corresponding paperwork. Electric motors are provided with the necessary certificates. An ATEX product must be supplied with a Declaration of Conformity. This declaration states that the electric motor complies with the applicable European standards. In addition, our motors also show a certificate number of the relevant notified inspection authority; or rather Notified Body, NB or NoBo. Finally, the electric motor also comes with operating instructions. All these documents and certificates ensure that the product fully complies with the guidelines.
