The LPX Hygienic Lobe Pump is a versatile positive displacement pump widely used in the Hygienic processing industry. Unlike Gear Pumps, the LPX features lobes that don’t physically touch, offering significant advantages for specific media. The LPX is perfect for pumping low and high-viscosity products gently and with minimal shear forces. Designed for energy efficiency, this pump boasts special rotor-shaft mounting for accurate positioning and a backlash-free connection. This design feature allows for lubrication and accounts for thermal expansion. With the unique gear housing design, cross-contamination of the pumped product with gear oils is eliminated, ensuring clean and hygienic operation.

The LPX pump series is the perfect solution for industries needing to pump both low and high viscosity products gently and with low shear forces. These pumps are optimised for energy efficient operations, boasting a design that features a special rotor-shaft mounting. This ensures accurate rotor positioning as well as a backlash-free connection (all components spaced out so contact surfaces don’t touch, allowing for lubrication and accounting for thermal expansion).

Additionally, the unique gear housing design ensures that there is no cross-contamination of the pumped product with gear oils.
