Pump Technology Rotary Lobe Pumps for Chemical Media
Vogelsang will be showcasing rotary lobe pumps for demanding applications across a wide variety of industries at Achema. The company’s main highlight of the show is the IQ and VX pump series.
Especially when it comes to the process industry, customers often have to deal with highly viscous, aggressive media. Oils, dyes, acids or other chemical fluids can only be efficiently pumped using robust and reliable pump technology that meets the strict safety standards.
The company’s rotary lobe pumps are hard-wearing and compact in design, it is perfectly suited for numerous applications. The models of the IQ and VX series are available in steel, stainless steel and a nickel-based alloy, making them particularly resistant to chemicals. The rotary lobe pumps are easy to maintain, self-priming and resistant to dry running, states the firm.
The IQ Series: High Pumping Capacity Combined with Minimal Wear
The IQ series is easy to handle and operate. Variable connections provide flexible installation options. For maintenance the pump remains completely screwed into the pipe. The pump chamber consists of one central part, so that access to the conveying elements is free in a few easy steps. By simply removing the cover, the inside can be cleaned, foreign matter removed quickly and blockages cleared.
There are only few spare parts, which reduces the time and cost of replacing wearing parts. The gearbox housing with integrated liquid buffer ensures excellent dry-running protection and a high suction capacity, adds the company. The IQ pump delivers up to 154 m³/h at a pressure of up to max. 7 bar.
The VX Series: Individual and Mobile Application
As an all-round pump, the VX series is suitable for numerous industrial applications and can be individually adapted to the respective requirements in material, equipment and power. The reversible flow direction makes it possible that containers, tanks, etc., can be filled and emptied.
According to the organisation, pulsation-free Hi Flo lobes ensure gentle pumping, ideal for media and substances that are sensitive to shear forces. The integrated Injection System increases the efficiency of the pump and thus improves the suction capacity. The pumps of this series are also suitable for mobile use and provide the pumping power that is required regardless of the location.
