Lobe rotor pumps with high sanitary characteristics
Rotary lobe pumps are popular in many industries including food and drink, pharmaceutical, chemical and paper. This is because they benefit from high efficiency, reliability, corrosion resistance, high sanitary characteristics and have good clean-in-place and steam-in-place qualities. This means that automatic cleaning occurs without the need for the pump to be taken apart. Thanks to their gentle pumping mechanism, lobe rotor pumps can handle solids without damaging or degrading the product, and can deal with very large particles compared to other types of positive displacement pumps.
Industries in which a rotary lobe pump is commonly installed include:
Food and drink
Paint and dyes
Rubber and adhesives
As well as their sanitary advantages, lobe pumps are self-priming, are able to run dry temporarily, non-pulsating and output is relatively constant as it is generally unaffected by changes in process pressure.
