Rotary Lobe Pumps

Sept. 1, 2019
The OptiLobe 10 and OptiLobe 50 pumps are available in four sizes to meet the requirements of lower flow rates and higher production capacities.

The pumps are suitable for general applications requiring low-shear operation and gentle handling of delicate products with easier serviceability, according to Alfa Laval. These pumps allow for heating/cooling front covers for processes in which products tend to harden at low temperatures. Seal faces have direct contact with high-velocity product media, which helps ensure a fast and secure Clean-in-Place process, reducing both cleaning time and contamination risk. Engineered for use within the food, dairy, beverage, and home-personal care industries, the positive displacement pumps conform to CE directives and EHEDG, 3-A and FDA hygienic standards. According to the company, the pump design helps to maximize pump efficiency and to reduce pulsation and noise emissions, as well as reduce the possibility of product damage by internal product recirculation. Factory-set shimming simplifies roto changing maintenance, with no further adjustment or retrimming needed.
