With an exceptional price-performance level and short lead time, the Top Lobe Plus (TLP) Series by SPX Flow offers customers a versatile, hygienic rotary lobe pump with low shear and gentle product handling for both high and low viscosity products.
With a design based on experience in highly successful rotary lobe pump models, the new pumps provide reliable performance with low-noise, robust, consistent, smooth displacement of product using sizable fluid cavities that can accommodate large solids in the product flow, claims the firm. They are optimised for energy efficiency operation and offer flushed double mechanical seals optionally to allow dry running.
According to the company, innovatively designed with a unique rotor-shaft attachment that ensures accurate rotor positioning and backlash-free connection, the pumps provide users with easy access and straightforward servicing. The unique gear case design ensures no cross-contamination of lubricating oils into the product zone and pre-loaded tapered roller bearings require no shimming. The 3A certified, hygienic design of the pump is complemented by CIP capability as standard and free-draining pump housing. Other key features include a compact shaft sealing with short overhang and helical gears for smooth power transmission.
Versatile and easy to install, the pump is suitable for horizontal or vertical mounting, capable of bi-directional flow and has a 4-way mounting gear case, adds the company. Designed to reduce the total cost of ownership, the pump is easy to disassemble / reassemble and straightforward to service and maintain. A timing reference mark on the rotor and shaft provides a reference point during assembly, while a non-uniform screw pattern prevents misalignment. Tapers on the fixing screws and rotor precisely locate the rotor during assembly and prevent screws from loosening during operation.
Overall, the new pump combines proven features of the previous SPX Flow rotary lobe product lines with new innovations to further enhance efficiency, reliability and total cost of ownership. It offers a wealth of features in a range of standard models that represent excellent value and, with completely assembled pumps held in stock and ready for shipment, is available with an incredibly short lead time.
The organisation states that the pumps hygienic performance and efficiency makes it ideal for a wide range of applications including syrups and sauces, liquid soap and shampoo, pharmaceutical emulsions and slurries, cosmetic creams and lotions, paints, paper pulps, dyes, chemical fibres and many more.
