company and a leading manufacturer of positive displacement pumps, will be
featuring a variety of its industry-leading pumps and screw compressors for the
transfer of liquids and dry bulk products at the upcoming International Motor Show
(IAA) Commercial Vehicles in Hanover, German.
Mouvex was incorporated in
1906 and is a leading manufacturer of positive displacement pumps, screw
compressors and hydraulic coolers. Mouvex — headquartered in Auxerre, France —
is part of PSG, a Dover company. Dover is a diversified global manufacturer
with annual revenue of approximately $7 billion.
Exhibiting in Hall 25 Stand
C39 at this year's show, Mouvex will be debuting its new CC10-24 vane truck
pump to the German market. Launched in September 2017, the CC10-24 has been
developed as a vehicle-mounted solution for loading and unloading petroleum
products for trucks and transports. This new pump includes all of the same
cutting-edge features and benefits as the Mouvex CC8 pump while incorporating a
variety of new enhancements designed to make the pump smaller, lighter (70.6
lbs./32 kg), quieter (72 dBA) and more environmentally friendly while
increasing pump efficiency and reducing delivery times.
Along with these advancements, the CC10-24
features an integrated by-pass designed to protect against excessive pressures
and overheating, and is equipped with a 500-micron strainer. Mouvex CC10-24
pumps are also virtually maintenance free, reversible and have been engineered
with double ball bearings for longer pump life. Additionally, these pumps are
ATEX certified and available with a 3-year warranty.
In addition, Mouvex will also
be offering a special preview of its MX12 screw compressors at the event, where
two prototypes will be on display in the booth. Designed to be a more compact
solution than the Mouvex Typhon II screw compressor while offering the same
flow rates, the MX12 is an ideal solution and better fit for trucks with less
space. MX12 compressors will be officially launched at the start of 2019.
The latest improvements to the
Mouvex MH6 screw compressor will also be featured at the show. One of the key
improvements to the MH6 is the ability to directly mount the compressor on a
truck's gearbox with integrated power takeoff (PTO) – a feature specifically
designed for the main brands of European trucks. The MH6 also offers a 70%
weight reduction when compared to traditional screw compressors. This reduction
in weight allows the MH6 the ability to provide fleets with increased turnover
per truck per year that equates to improved revenues, while also meeting the
requirements of the European Union's Euro 6 legislation
Mouvex will also be sharing a
booth with sister PSG company Blackmer. At the show, Blackmer will be
showcasing a variety of its sliding vane pumps for the transfer of liquid and
gas products, including the STX3, TXH3 and LGL1. Designed for maximum
performance and reliability, Blackmer pumps are ideally suited for a wide
variety of critical LPG, petroleum and chemical applications. Utilizing
Blackmer's unique sliding vane design, these positive displacement pumps offer
the best-combined characteristics of sustained high-level performance, energy
efficiency, trouble-free operation and low maintenance cost.
