3 Safety instructions
When operating the pump, the safety instructions
contained in this manual, the relevant national accident prevention regulations and any other service and
safety instructions issued by the plant operator are to
be observed.
 If hot or cold machine components involve hazards, they must be guarded against accidental
 Any leakage of hazardous (e.g. explosive, toxic,
hot) fluids (e.g. from the shaft seal) must be
drained away so as to prevent any risk to persons
or the environment. Statutory regulations are to be
complied with.
Hazards in the event of non-compliance with
the safety instructions
