Whether in the chemical, pharmaceutical or food industries, flammable gases and dust in processing industries create serious safety risks for people and machines. Nord Drivesystems has been a certified manufacturer for many years and since 2003 its range includes ATEX-compliant drive solutions such as gas explosion protected motors, gear units and electronic drive technology for Zones 1, 2, 21 or 22.
Nord supplies application-specific drive solutions with individual configurations and equipment from its modular system. The company offers flexible drive concepts with motors which are optionally designed for use with inverters as well as the option of IEC or NEMA motor mounting, or directly on the gear unit for an especially compact solution. The manufacturer's explosion protection range features the integration of external fans, back stops or brakes (depending on the zone); on request, combined dust/gas explosion protected systems for ambient temperatures up to + 60 °C and delivery world-wide with documentation in more than 20 languages. If required the maintenance intervals which are determined for the specific application can be stamped on the type plates.
With the SK 180 E - NORDAC BASE the NORD range also includes many ATEX-compliant, decentralised frequency inverters for various applications which are not only economical in operation but are also available in protection class IP69K. This ensures that complete sealing of the housing is guaranteed, even for processing applications which require frequent high pressure cleaning. The frequency inverters are used in applications in the packaging and food industry, as well as for conveying and pumping applications.
A special focus of NORD is the range of explosion protected pump drives. The fully matched drive systems, consisting of the gear unit, motor and frequency inverter, form master-slave groups which communicate intelligently with each other and therefore take over the monitoring or control of the complete pump system.
