Destructive Dry Running Test Ɛx
Within the ongoing Atex certification process, Pneumofore analyzed the A35 air compressor in terms of vibration, pressure, absorbed power and temperature. Also the dry running test confirmed the CE Ɛx II 2 GD Ex conformity of our rotary vane air-ends used for compression of gas. The infrared picture shows the temperature map during the start-up of the “destructive dry running test”, the horizontal air-end is shown on the left. The vacuum air-ends are certified Ɛx II 2 G c T3 (-29°C – +50°C) since 2012 and are successfully running in several (hydrocarbons) Vapor Recovery Units VRU, mainly in Europe and Asia.
