A large rotary lobe pump for sensitive products

By Chemical Engineering |

GEA Group

GEA Group

This company is expanding its Novalobe pump range with the large-volume Novalobe 60 (photo), which has a chamber volume of 2.1 L per revolution. The rotary-lobe pump is specifically designed for pumping and dosing highly viscous media with large particles (up to 41 mm in diameter). This new development meets the hygiene standards for aseptic and sterile applications in the pharmaceutical, chemical and food industries. The new pump handles larger quantities at low speeds, which is crucial for sensitive media. The internal mechanical seals can be replaced from the front of the pipeline without removing the pump. These seals are optimally lubricated and cooled to significantly extend service life. Hygienic cleanability and sterilization are ensured with the choice of seals, extremely fine-pored surface quality and complete drainability in the vertical position. — GEA Group AG, Düsseldorf, Germany
