Features and Benefits

Easy to transport

Lightweight, easy to transport with handle attachment

No vapor locking

Cavity design allows for conveyance of liquids, solids, and gases

Ease of operation

Valveless flow control for ease of operation

Performance efficiency

Low slip (internal back flow) provides performance efficiency and less wear on components

Easy maintenance

Simple and predictive maintenance due to minimal components

Simple barrel drainage

Problem-free barrel emptying due to the suction side inlet pressure

Technologies, accessories and options

Overpressure Protection

The pressure gauge switches off the pump as soon as a pre-set pressure is exceeded or not reached and protects the pump from increased wear and tear or piping damage.

Single-acting mechanical seal

Universal standard mechanical seal for dosing, food applications and semi-submersible pumps for sealing the plug-in shaft in the suction casing or the hopper.

Drive

Geared motors, variable speed drives or frequency controlled motors of all major manufacturers, directly flanged to the pump without additional couplings or guards. Covers made of stainless steel are available.

Handle

For easy transport on site.

Coupling rod

With two pin joints with hardened and wear resistant components, easily assembled, grease lubricated and positively sealed with elastomer sleeves and two holding bands.

Rotor

Wear resistant and corrosion-proof materials.

Conventional geometry

With short pitches and a compact design, the conventional geometry produces high pressures.

6L geometry

With a small rotor diameter and a long pitch, the 6L geometry attains lower surface velocities and extends the service life due to its large sealing line.

Tricam geometry

The rotor with Tricam geometry features a three-helix geometry. This enables it to achieve larger conveying capacities with the same overall length of the pump.

Stator

The seal on both ends is moulded as an integral part of the elastomeric stator. Corrosion of the stator tube is never a problem because the pumped liquid never comes into contact with the metal tube or the bonding adhesive.
