Alfa Laval Twin Screw Pump
Designed for handling fluids which are sensitive, abrasive and either high or low viscosity, the Alfa Laval Twin Screw Pump is suitable for use in hygienic applications in the dairy, food and beverage, and personal care industries. The pump is quiet and virtually pulse-free, as well as being smooth and gentle during operation.
Built on a robust platform that meets stringent hygienic standards, the pump is capable of handling both product transfer and cleaning-in-place (CIP). Its low pulsation characteristics and good solids handling capabilities are said to reduce the risk of product damage, thereby improving product quality. Maintenance is thus simplified and process uptime increased.
Two-in-one operation provides easy handling of process media of varying viscosities as well as CIP fluids. This simplifies piping and pump control, minimising contamination risks. High suction performance with good lift capability and low NPSHR provides installation flexibility and increases product recovery.
Quick, easy seal replacement with the pump in place is made possible, due to a cartridge seal with a front-loading, self-setting design. This maximises process uptime and minimises maintenance. An optional seal service kit program adds maintenance flexibility.
The pump features a clean, external stainless steel finish with profiled elastomers and mechanical seals fully surrounded by the product. Designed for maximum cleanability using FDA-conforming materials, the pump is both EHEDG and 3-A certified. An optional ATEX version enables use in hazardous zones.
