DALLAS, Jan. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- (NASDAQ: CECE) – CECO Environmental, a leading global provider of fluid handling and air quality technology and solutions, today announced the achievement and declaration of CE and ATEX certifications for CECO Dean Pump air-cooled, high temperature RA and RWA, and heavy duty, high temperature R4000 series pumps.
"We see an unmet demand for highly reliable centrifugal pumps in explosive, high temperature, plastics and other process applications throughout the European Union countries," said Christopher Brown, president of CECO's Fluid Handling business. "This is significant step in better serving our customers and achieving our strategy to grow internationally. The Dean Pumps are particularly recognized for the ability to move high temperature liquids in mission critical applications."
The Dean CE/ATEX certifications now make it possible for original equipment manufacturers and end user customers in the EU to specify and purchase Dean pumps in their local regions.
All certified and compliant pumps from Dean, now available for importation into the EU, will feature the "CE" mark, which makes them compliant with the European Union's Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC as well as the "ATEX" Directive 2014/34/EU. The CE/ATEX-certified pumps will carry the "CE" and "Ex" marks on product labeling. Click to read the Dean RA series, RWA series, and R4000 series declarations.

"Dean pumps are frequently specified across a number of applications in process industries. The certifications, along with our Dorian Drake sales partnership, will help fuel opportunities while offering the customer base with a high-quality and cost-effective pumping solution."
With these certifications, CECO's high temperature Dean pumps, as identified above, now comply with ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU and are available for use in places where explosive atmospheres may arise through the mixture of air and flammable materials such as gases, vapors, mists and dusts. These conditions most commonly exist in chemical plants, refineries, liquid-storage terminals and latex plants.
