Pneumofore A35 Air Compressor: Destructive Dry Running Test for Atex Certification

infrared temperature map

Pneumofore have finished evaluation of the A35 air compressor in terms of vibration, pressure, absorbed power and temperature as part of the on-going Atex certification process.

Dry running tests confirmed the CE Ex II 2 GD Ex-conformity of our rotary vane air-ends, which are used for compression of gas.

The infrared picture shows the temperature map during the start-up of the destructive dry running test, and the horizontal air-end is can be seen on the left.

The vacuum air-ends were certified Ex II 2 G c T3 (-29°C – +50°C) in 2012, and are currently successfully running in several hydrocarbons Vapor Recovery Units (VRUs), predominantly in Europe and Asia.
