SSP Pumps, represented by Mono Pumps , has unveiled its Series X range of rotary lobe pumps (RLPs) for processes requiring high level cleanability.
Its characteristic smooth low shear pumping action facilitates gentle handling of delicate and sensitive media.
The pumps also comply with the European Hygienic Equipment Design Group (EHEDG), USA 3-A Sanitary Standard and FDA regulations.
The Series X range with pump head displacements of 0.05 to 3.8 litres per revolution is capable of flow rates up to 115m3/h and pressures up to 15 bar.
The Series X range has a robust cast iron gearbox with a universal gearbox design for model X1 to X4.
This gives the flexibility of mounting pumps with the inlet and outlet ports in either a vertical or horizontal plane simply by changing the foot and its position.
If EHEDG design and installation compliance and conformity to the Machinery Safety Directive 89/392/EEC (1989) is required, a dedicated vertical port option will be supplied.
A tough epoxy paint gearbox finish provides optimum protection against natural and corrosive elements.
Series X pumps have full through-bore inlet and outlet ports to international standards. This reduces inlet and outlet port losses, thereby lowering NPSH requirements.
Vertical porting and the range's unique rotorcase internal profile enhances self-draining and self-venting whilst maintaining optimum volumetric efficiency.
A self-cleaning design rotor retention device incorporates as high integrity cup seal to fully isolate splines from the pumped media. The precise involute splines ensure accurate rotor synchronisation.
All the pumps in the range have four lobe rotors, designed using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to develop the optimum rotor geometry.
Rotors are rated to 150ºC facilitating use with CIP (Cleaning in Place) and SIP (Sterilise in Place) processes.
All metallic pumped media wetted components are manufactured in 316L stainless steel.
