Specialized Innovations Multi-Stage Centrifugal Pump
With the introduction of a third size in the GEA Hilge Contra range, the company is expanding the performance spectrum of its centrifugal pumps to a flow rate of 100 cubic meters per hour. The new GEA Hilge Contra III meets the general requirements of the dairy, beverage and food industries.
The new GEA Hilge Contra III centrifugal pump is particularly well suited for demanding pharmaceutical applications in which sterile, no-cast materials in CIP- and SIP-capable specialized pumps are a critical factor in the manufacture of life science products.
The centrifugal pump is hygienic and easy to maintain so as to improve plant availability. This not only contributes to product safety, but also to gentle product handling and plant efficiency. CIP and sanitizing cycle times can be reduced, which in turn saves water and cleaning agents as well as the energy required to heat the cleaning media, states the company.
Service-friendly patented Adapta design of the centrifugal pump allows it to remain in the pipeline in the event of a motor change. The system does not need to be revalidated for pharmaceutical applications, thus minimizing maintenance requirements, adds the firm.
Whether installed horizontally or vertically, the GEA Hilge Contra III achieves a very high efficiency thanks to the precise operating point design and various impeller geometries.
