THE PRINCIPLE

SEEPEX progressive cavity pumps belong to the group of rotary positive displacement pumps.

FEATURES

  • Two conveying elements with special geometry
  • off-center rotary motion

HOW IT WORKS

The geometry of rotor and stator forms enclosed cavities. The rotary movement of the rotor transfers the medium from the suction to the pressure side.

BENEFITS

  • Self priming, high suction lift
  • High discharge pressures
  • Flow almost independent of system pressures
  • Direction of rotation reversible
  • Continuous flow, low pulsation

ROTOR AND STATOR

SEEPEX rotors and stators meet the highest quality requirements and guarantee high efficiency. Less wear and good corrosion resistance minimize operating costs and ensure a long service life. They follow certain prerequisites: optimized surfaces, high-precision geometries, customizable materials, and application-specific sizing and coating.

FEATURES OF THE ROTOR

  • High surface grade
  • Adapted materials
  • High surface hardness

FEATURES OF THE STATOR

  • Integrated seal
  • Large range of materials
  • High pressure stability

BENEFITS

  • Optimal efficiency due to optimized rotor surface
  • Energy efficient due to reduced starting and operating torques
  • Low emissions due to reduced surface roughness
  • Long service life due to perfectly matched components

GEOMETRIES

The SEEPEX tenet: we develop customized solutions for the various needs and requirements of our customers. That is why we also supply tailor-made rotor/stator geometries that are designed exactly for the required conveying capacity, pressure and conveying product.

BENEFITS OF GEOMETRIES

  • Optimum performance
  • Low operating costs
  • Quick return on investment
  • Long pump service life
  • Modular system: all geometries interchangeable

SEEPEX 6L GEOMETRY

SEEPEX 6L geometry enables lower surface velocities with its small rotor diameter and longer pitch length while also extending surface life due to a larger sealing line.

FEATURES

  • Improved efficiency
  • Lower axial forces
  • Less wear, longer service life
  • Specifically suitable for easy-flowing products
  • Pressure: up to 6 bar (90 PSI)

VIEW

SEEPEX CONVENTIONAL GEOMETRY

With smaller pitches and a compact design, the conventional SEEPEX geometry achieves high system pressures.

FEATURES

  • Extremely versatile, suitable for practically any application
  • Specifically designed for highly viscous products
  • Pressure: up to 48 bar (720 PSI)

VIEW

SEEPEX TRICAM-GEOMETRY

The SEEPEX tricam-geometry attains higher conveying capacities with the same pump length thanks to its higher number of helices. With the longer 6LT or the shorter 12T design, the SEEPEX benefits will be achieved at higher flow rates.

FEATURES

  • Increased conveying capacity by 50%
  • Even at higher pressures
  • Easy conversion from 6L or conventional to tricam geometry

VIEWS

PIN JOINT

SEEPEX progressive cavity pumps are equipped with robust and easy-to-install pin joints. Hermetically sealed universal joint sleeves ensure a smooth operation, even at extreme temperatures or when handling abrasive products.

FEATURES

  • Made of wear-resistant, hardened and easy-to-replace components
  • Fastened with a retaining sleeve
  • Completely filled with special grease
  • Hermetically sealed with an elastic universal joint sleeve
  • Variety of universal joint sleeve materials offered along with further options for trouble-free operation

BENEFITS

  • The universal joint sleeve offers effective protection against mechanical damage
  • Quick and easy dismantling reduces service time and effort
  • SEEPEX guarantees 10,000 operating hours on joints with the optional "universal joint protection" design
