Our Lobe Pump is a strong, compact pump that provides maximum performance and efficiency. It is a versatile pump, ideal for use with sanitary applications due to it being EHEDG compliant and constructed from cast Stainless Steel AISI 316L. The pump is also finished with a surface roughness of <0.8 as standard or 0.5 upon request this increases the corrosion resistance of the pump.
Ideal for the food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Lobe Pumps can be used for a large variety of food applications including Viscous products like yoghurt, custard, Glucose Syrup & Chocolate Drinks such as beer, lemonade & fruit juice Meat products like animal food & chopped meat As well as cosmetic products like shampoo & creams. A Lobe Pump can also come as ATEX rated for use within potentially explosive environments.
The two lobes within the pump counter-rotate to create a positive displacement force within the pump casing. The lobes then rotate without touching, and as they rotate within the pump casing, they pass the suction port. The rotating increases the volume of product between the lobes, which then forms a vacuum drawing fluid into the suction port and the pump casing. As the lobes continue to rotate, they drive a predetermined amount of liquid through the pump. When the lobes reach the discharge port, the volume of product between them decreases, creating pressure which causes the product to flow out of the pump casing’s discharge port.
Maintaining your Lobe Pump is easy providing you carry out regular checks on the pump. Regular maintenance checks will reduce the likelihood of unnecessary downtime for your pump and will reduce breakdown costs. There are already low maintenance costs associated with Lobe Pumps, so following the brief maintenance checklist below will help further.
Maintenance of the pump is made simpler by the mechanical seals and lobes ability to be pulled out of the pump through the front of the casing. Get in contact with the sales team on [email protected]
