The AT series of semi-rotary hand pumps are Atex rated and designed for the transfer of flammable fluids and for use in potentially flammable environments. This range is constructed with a cast iron body, cast iron handle and brass internal mechanism. It is supplied with a 2m earthing cable and a 300 micron filter for protecting the pump from any unwanted solid particles.

 

Common pumped fluids for this Atex pump range include; water, diesel, kerosene, Jet A1 fuel, petrol, alcohol, gas oil, solvents, toluene, acetone, trichloroethylene, white spirit and any other low viscosity compatible fluids.

 

These manual Atex pumps are ideal in areas where power is not available, popular applications include; emptying barrels and drums, garage use, transport, filling stations, aerospace, aviation, supplying fuel to industrial engines, marine engines or generating sets.

 

These units can be supplied with various individual accessories or as a complete kit if required, these include; bung adapter, rigid suction tube for drums, outlet elbow, flexible delivery hose, mechanical flow metre and anti-drip spout or manually operated trigger nozzle.

FAQS

The standard tubeset lengths are 700 mm for smaller containers - 25 litre jerry cans, 100 litre tanks etc, 1000 mm for 205 litre drums and 1200 mm for IBC's. Other bespoke lengths are available on request.
Firstly, always check the compatibility of the materials available against the fluid being pumped. The main materials to check are the pump casing, the internal components such as the impeller or pistons, o-ring and mechanical seal. It may be that more than one material is suitable for your fluid and selection could be based on the application type. For instance; cast iron, bronze and stainless steel are all suitable for fresh water. If it is a simple transfer application, then the most cost-effective material cast iron will be best. However, if it is a sanitary application, then stainless steel or bronze are better choices. Please contact us if you are unsure what materials are best and we will try our best to help.
Please be aware that the flow rate displayed is for the largest model from this specific range of hand pumps. These pumps are hand operated, meaning that the flow rate is proportional to how many times the pump handle is rotated. The faster the operator pumps, the higher the flow rate. Figures are based on an average person operating the pump.
Our hand pumps can be supplied with various individual accessories if a complete kit is not required, these include; bung adapter, rigid suction tube for drums, outlet elbow, flexible delivery hose, mechanical flow metre and anti-drip spout or manually operated trigger nozzle.
ATEX is an abbreviation of “Atmospheres Explosibles”. It is a regulation set out by the European Union to ensure the safety of products that are used to handle flammable products or are installed in environments containing flammable gases, vapours, mists or combustible dusts. For instance, if the pump is being installed in an explosive environment, then only the motor needs to meet the Atex standard stopping it from causing a spark during operation and igniting the atmosphere. However, if the fluid being pumped is flammable, then the pump will also need to meet Atex standards to ensure that no sparks are caused inside the pump itself when the fluid goes through it. It is crucial that an Atex rated pump or motor are used for applications involving explosive environments or flammable fluids, using a non-Atex pump or motor in these situations is extremely dangerous and contravenes health and safety standards.
