The stainless-steel hybrid pump LES is said to be an alternative to side-channel pumps. The pump features a specially designed pump cover with an integrated recirculation system, as well as an inducer, which allows the pump to be used in self-priming applications. The pump has a hygienic design, based on European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group (EHEDG) guidelines, making it suitable for use in the food-and-beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetics and chemical industries. Optional versions are available with ATEX approval (Zones 1, 2 and 21, 22); pharmaceutical-specific design; magnetic coupling; and more. The pumps have a maximum flowrate of 150 m3/h, and delivery heads of up to 60 m, and they handle liquids with viscosity up to 500 mPa-s. — SAWA Pumpentechnik AG, Degersheim, Switzerland
