The UBR tank washing head can be supplied with a pneumatic or electric motor. But what are the differences between the two?
With the same tube length, pneumatic UBR is generally lighter than the one with the electric motor.
ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND COSTS
One of the main differences between pneumatic motors and electric motors is energy efficiency: a disadvantage of pneumatic motors is in fact, that they are less efficient than electric ones.
The environment where the motor will be used is one of the essential factors to consider in making the right choice between an electric or pneumatic motor. Note that many operating environments are hazardous to electric motors and that only the pneumatic motor has an ATEX certification for explosive environments (ATEX Ex II 2GD h T6 IIC T85 °C)
