SteriLobe Offers Greater Pumping Capacity
Jun 1, 2001 12:00 PM
Viking Pump has developed the SteriLobe series of positive-displacement rotary lobe pumps. With 6" ports, the first pump in the series nearly doubles the capacity of the firm's existing rotary lobe pump lines. With capacities to more than 1,000 gallons per minute (230 cubic meters/hour), the SteriLobe pump handles fluid viscosities up to 2 million SSU (440,000 cSt), and develops pressures to 220 psig (15 bar). Temperature capabilities range to 300° F (150° C), and 316L stainless steel is used in pump construction.
The four-lobe rotor design provides nearly pulseless transfer or metering of virtually any fluid, from water to viscous or shear-sensitive liquids. A simple gear timing mechanism eliminates shimming, and front-loading seals simplify service. Single or double mechanical seals are available for nearly any fluid application.
