KF 0 – a pump for process engineering. In numerous technical processes dosing liquids is the focus of the task. PUR components, softeners, resins, lacquers, paints are just some of the most important liquids with a broad application range. The accuracy, evenness and reproducibility with which these products can be processed are also decisive for the quality of the final product. The gear pump size KF 0 is especially suitable for these applications. The KF 0 is an external gear pump with flow rates of 0.5 cm3/r to 4 cm3/r. The grading of the total of 8 nominal sizes makes it easier to set the desired dosing ratios. The fine gearing with a high number of teeth guarantees a low-pulsation volume flow. All gear parts and the bearing bushes are protected even in the standard design by a special coating against wear and corrosion, so that even filled media up to a specific grain size and hardness of the filled material can be conveyed. Because of the backlash dimensioning in combination with precise production the KF 0 has very good volumetric efficiency over a wide pressure range. Various types of seals, such as rotary shaft seals and double rotary shaft seals can be selected depending on the task, whereby the latter version enables operations with quench (quench chamber) to prevent the pumping medium from hardening or crystallising. In combination with a flow meter and the electronics the KF 0 can be extended to a highly precise dosing unit.
