Recently introduced, the new T-Sano model from Netzsch’s Tornado family of rotary lobe pumps is designed so that no dust or dirt can settle on its smooth housing. To ensure that no dust can accumulate, the housing design removes any avoidable edges, dead spaces or crevices.
In addition to materials and cleanability, great emphasis is placed on the outer contours of the components. The smooth T-Sano model can achieve flowrates ranging from 0.5 to 12 m3/h at pressures up to 10 bars and temperatures up to 150°C. The pumps feature an oil-free, synchronizing tooth belt drive and are full-service-in-place (FSIP) capable.
All T-Sano pumps are certified according to the European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group (EHEDG). Now, this smooth model is also available in a heated version especially designed for pumping fluids that must be conveyed at a constant temperature, such as fat-containing media. Tornado pumps are self-priming, valveless, positive-displacement pumps that can be customized to meet specific process and application requirements.
They can be used for intermittent, continuous or dosing applications handling a very large variety of process media, including low- and high-viscosity media, shear-sensitive fluids and products containing gas, solids or fibrous materials, as well as lubricating or non-lubricating products. The pumps are particularly service- and maintenance-friendly; all pump parts that come into contact with the pumped product are directly accessible without dismantling the pipework or disconnecting the drive. The pumps’ advantages are small space requirements due to their compact design and maximized operational reliability, and the physical separation between the pump head and bearing housing is an additional benefit.
The pumping action is generated by the contra-rotation of two rotors within the pump chamber, which are synchronized externally. The product enters the pump chamber through the inlet port and is carried around the chamber by the rotors to the outlet port where it is discharged. Reversible operation and dry running are possible and the pumps can be easily serviced without disconnecting attached pipework.
