The ZXD includes patented blow-through channel for optimal pocket sweeping and offers pressure differentials up to 1.5 bar(g) [21 psi(g)]. Standard operating temperatures up to 100° C [212° F] and special configurations for higher temperature to 150-220° C [302-428° F]. Heavy Duty design includes an explosion pressure shock-proof rating of 10 bar(g) [145 psi(g)]. Available with standard TEFC, EXP, Washdown, and IEEE Severe Duty gear motors.

The ZXD comes standard with air purged seals completely mounted with plastic or stainless steel tubing, solenoid, filter regulator and gauge. Sealed-For-Life outboard shaft seal arrangement separated from product by an air purge seal and a drop out opening. The ZXD has a large inlet for high filling efficiency and the blow-through conveying configuration enhances rotor cleanout while conveying and makes installation in tight quarters possible.
