Twin Screw Pumps
Tapflo UK’s range of Rotary Lobe Pumps are ideal for a variety of applications in the process industry, including the Pulp & Paper, Food & Beverage, Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology sectors. Lobe Pumps, which are types of positive displacement pumps, offer comprehensive benefits and features that make them highly efficient and reliable.
A Lobe Pump, or Rotary Lobe Pump, is similar to a Gear Pump except the lobes in a Lobe Pump are designed to almost meet rather than touch and turn each other. Tapflo UK’s Rotary Lobe Pumps feature a design that incorporates two rotating lobes, creating suction to draw more fluid into the pump. This action generates the necessary pressure to transfer a predetermined amount of fluid out through the pump’s discharge point.
Lobe Pumps offer self-priming capabilities when wetted, and are capable of handling a wide range of substances including solids, slurries and pastes. Whether it’s cherries, olives or additional solid materials, Lobe Pumps can effectively transfer them without causing damage or product degradation, making them ideal for applications where preserving product integrity of the pumped material is essential.
Able to deliver discharge pressures of up to 15 Bar, with temperature handling capabilities of up to 140°C, these pumps offer reliable performance across demanding applications.
Our range of Rotary Lobe Pumps also deliver superior sanitary qualities, offering excellent CIP (Clean in Place) and SIP (Sterilise in Place) characteristics, and have been designed to ensure cleanliness and conformity with stringent industry standards, such as EHEDG compliance. The pumps in this range can also be ATEX rated upon request, ensuring compliance with hazardous area regulations.
