RCE

Chemical centrifugal pump in metal

The RCE is a horizontal single-stage, end-suction, top-discharge, centrifugal pump with heavy duty bolted-down bearing pedestal.  The sturdy design with front and back vanes on the impeller is primarily intended to fulfil very specific requirements as a standard chemical pump.

As a product-related special version, the RCE is the first choice in the chemical industry, the basic industry - especially in fertilizer production - environmental technology and many other industrial sectors.

It pumps organic and inorganic as well as aggressive liquids with high solid contents and is particularly suitable for hot media up to 450 degrees. Examples of applications include ammonium nitrate, molten sulphur, phosphoric acid, tar, pitch, urea melt, caustic soda, water glass, mash and cataphoretic paints.
